International stalemate with North Korea continues into its seventh decade. A young, untested dictator is determined to prove himself by breaking the deadlock. His plans hang on the country's nuclear ambitions, a program previously impeded by lack of resources.
When a rogue state tries to go nuclear, only two men can stop it . . .
Jack Ryan Jr is in Hoi Chi Minh City, when a hit leaves Jack with a corpse, no documents, and only a bloodily scribbled note as a clue to what just happened.
It sends him on the trail of a shadowy security firm with links to North Korea, newly resurgent under its young, power-hungry dictator. For the rogue state has found a way to finally make its nuclear ambitions a reality – no matter the cost to the world.
There is something President Jack Ryan will not permit. But North Korea and its backers have plans for the US leader – which will silence him for good.
On the ground and on the global stage, Jack Ryans Jr and Sr race against time to halt a madman from acquiring the world's deadliest weapon . . .
