After an airliner crashes into the Capitol, killing the president, Jack Ryan, the vice-president takes over. The novel describes Ryan's campaign to impose a right-wing morality on the U.S. and a new order on the world, the latter accomplished with the aid of high-tech warfare. A sequel to Debt of Honor. Jack Ryan becomes president by sheer accident when the former president, most of Congress, the Cabinet and the Supreme Court are bombed out of existence. Ryan must jump in to discover who did it, all the while contending with the threat of military takeover and covert biological warfare.

Cautionary wish fulfillment book seemed almost quaint today.
Could today's leaders handle scenario?

I am reading through the Jack Ryan series in order. So far, this is the best one yet. Lots of plot twists.

A massive tome but Tom Clancy's best novel! Make sure you read Debt of Honour first, as it is a direct continuation of that novel.

My first choice for a film adaptation of any of the Clancy novels.

A nightmare scenario faces Jack Ryan, new president of the United States. The plot mixes together a truly despicable Iranian ayatollah (not surprisingly, similar to the real ones), the Ebola virus, and a high stakes war, with a powerful concluding chapter.
