Get ready, thriller fans, because Jack Ryan Junior is back in action on May 9th, 2023 in Tom Clancy Flash Point, the latest thriller from New York Times bestselling author Don Bentley.
While we’ll do a separate book announcement once we know more, this is actually the first of two Jack Junior books from Bentley this year, with the second due out sometime in late summer or early fall. That means 2022 marks the first time Don Bentley—who has been red-hot since releasing his debut novel, Without Sanction, first came out in 2020—will pub two Clancy books in a single calendar year. But that’s not all. A week before Flash Point hits bookstores, his fourth Drake novel, Forgotten War, is scheduled to drop first. Then it’s time for Jack Junior, who is soon about to uncover a secret that could threaten his country, to return to action.
Check out the plot details and cover art below:
If there’s one thing Jack Ryan, Jr’s father taught him, it’s that freedom isn’t free, but nothing can prepare Jack for the price he must pay in the latest electrifying entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.
Jack Ryan Jr. is in a world of trouble. When a benign surveillance operation takes a deadly turn, Jack finds himself locked in a struggle with an unseen enemy bent on destroying the Campus. The chase leads Jack to the South China Sea where a midair collision between aircraft from rival nations threatens to serve as a flash point for the entire region. As Jack frantically tries to put the pieces of the conspiracy together, the Campus is hit with a crippling attack. When the dust settles, Jack is one of the few operators still standing and the Campus’s de facto leader. But the fight is just beginning.
As tensions escalate, Jack’s mysterious adversary executes a brilliant campaign to paralyze the American government even as China inches closer to invading Taiwan. With the odds stacked against him and no help in sight, Jack and his shattered team must stop the world’s two remaining super powers from stumbling into war even as the noose around the Campus grows ever tighter.
Every operation has a cost.
This time the bill might just be too much to pay.
