When Jack Ryan Jr is sent to Singapore on what seems a routine administrative task, he worries he's being sidelined in the war on terror. But it soon becomes clear there's more to the mission - and his unassuming new partner, Paul Brown - than meets the eye.
Mike Maden grew up working in the canneries, feed mills and slaughterhouses of California's San Joaquin Valley. A lifelong fascination with history and warfare ultimately lead to a Ph.D. in political science focused on conflict and technology in international relations. Like millions of others, he first became a Tom Clancy fan after reading The Hunt for Red October, and began his published fiction career in the same techno-thriller genre, starting with Drone and the sequels, Blue Warrior, Drone Command and Drone Threat. He's honored to be joining "The Campus" as a writer in Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, Jr., series.
