Oh dear. This is what happens when you turn a Tom Clancy novel into a police procedural. It sticks out like a badly-made bed in the canon of Jack Ryan Jr books. It is so different from the rest of the series it must have been an experiment to see how far you can push your readership into accepting something that is off-piste in terms of style and pace.
Maybe this is a more realistic take on the cloak-and-dagger world, but I found it unduly complicated and I got lost after the first few chapters. The plot was unconvincing. I never quite understood why Jack Ryan Jr felt so strongly about his friendship with Seth who I wanted to double-tap because he had "trouble maker" written all over him from the start. Ysabel started off as what I thought was the potential love interest and ended up as an operative with good tradecraft.
And it was boring. I wish I'd read the reviews before I bought this book and not succumbed to my need to read all the Jack Ryan Jr books because the early ones were so fantastic. My only consolation is that I bought it second-hand and so didn't pay full price.
The main character just isn't his Dad, or Clarke, or even Dom.
