Review by Booklist Reviews

From the frantic opening involving the sinking of a Chinese oil tanker near Seattle to the developing story of a possible push to war by China against the U.S., Cameron's first novel employing the characters created by Tom Clancy is a definite winner. President Jack Ryan and his team must walk the fine line between law and lawlessness if they are to save innocent lives and avoid an all-out war. Complicating matters—and tying into the Chinese plot—are stolen secrets on a thumb drive and a teen sex ring. Cameron somehow compacts what could easily have been three novels into one compelling package. The Jack Ryan franchise is in good hands. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Library Journal Reviews

Hints about a Chinese spy carrying dangerously important information surface during a routine traffic stop deep in the heart of Texas, and John Clark and his Campus colleagues are on the hunt. Author of the New York Times best-selling Jericho Quinn novels, Cameron is about to break out big as the new author of the Jack Ryan series. Copyright 2017 Library Journal.

Review by PW Annex Reviews

In this superior franchise entry, Cameron (Field of Fire) delivers plenty of action along with the spycraft and weapons details that Tom Clancy fans have always loved. President Jack Ryan is dealing with confrontations with China over maritime claims in the South China Seas; his son, Jack Jr., is working with FBI special agent Kelsey Callahan to destroy a child sex slavery operation; and John Clark, Jack Jr.'s boss at the Campus, a covert antiterrorism organization, is searching for Magdalena Rojas, a 13-year-old girl who's been trafficked. Cameron successfully juggles the three separate plot lines, each engrossing on its own, and seamlessly stitches them together by novel's end. The original Clancy characters often get short shrift in these series continuations, but not here: both Ryans receive an impressive amount of page time, and the highly competent and often ruthless Clark gets to show why he is "a legend in the intelligence community." All the writers who have contributed to this series since Clancy's death have been good, but Cameron's formidable performance puts him at the head of the pack. Agent: Jennifer Rudolph Walsh, WME.
