    One Reply to “Support and Defend”

    1. Should Tom Clancy's work be continued?Clancy's last three major novels before his death were co-authored with Mark Greaney. For some time Clancy's work had gone off the boil and but IMHO the last two books, THREAT VECTOR and COMMAND AUTHORITY took us back to something nearer to Clancy at his peak, probably because Greaney took a primary role in the collaboration.I started this book with some trepidation because of the obvious question - can (and should) Mark Greaney carry on the Tom Clancy herit [...]

    2. Mark Greaney is coming of age as a writer on par with Tom Clancy. This most current addition to the Tom Clancy library of books is a good edition. Greaney gets it right and as such shows great honor to his mentor Tom Clancy.In this book about "The Campus" we are going to focus on a new hero, Dominic Caruso. He is fast becoming one of the best character additions that has been made to the Clancy legacy. Dominic while still trying to recover from injuries he has sustained in other adventures is no [...]

    3. SUBJECTIVE READER REVIEW FOLLOWSA;Support and Defend, completed after Clancy's death is actually an easier book to read than Clancy's earlier novels which were jam packed with all manner of technical know how and secret military processes and tactics. It actually felt a little strange to read a Clancy novel where neither Jack Ryan or Jack Junior are active characters. In my opinion it was a good read, did not challenge the reader into a war of attrition just to complete it, and it was fairly ent [...]

    4. I have been a Tom Clancy fan since the late 90's. His books were almost always an intricate web of details waiting to be pulled together in an action packed story of valor, good versus evil, etc. The last few stories co-authored with Greaney were excellent represntations of a master storyteller. Support and Defend is a pretty good yarn, no doubt about it, but for me it fell short of what a Clancy novel should be. It seemed to me that the story may have been a rush job by Greaney or the publisher [...]

    5. #1 in The Campus series by Mark Greaney as a solo author after co-authoring 3 entries in the series with Tom Clancy. This novel fits into the Jack Ryan universe as #17, as protagonist Dominic Caruso is repeatedly referred to as President Jack Ryan's nephew. This seems to be a seamless transition of the series after the death of author Tom Clancy. As befits a member of 'the Campus', Caruso has no problem gathering information and is always several steps ahead of the FBI. A fun read in the anti-te [...]

    6. Dominic Caruso the nephew of the President Jack Ryan and aFBI agent and operator for the Campus a top secret intelligenceagency that works off the books for the government is alreadyscarred by the death of his brother and then he is devastated when he can't save a friend and his family from a terroristattack. Ethan Ross is a mid level staffer for the National Security Council and is now a wanted fugitive on the run witha Microdrive that has enough information to wreck AmericanIntelligence around [...]

    7. With the death of Tom Clancy in 2013 there is no longer any pretence that he has been involved in the books produced under his name. This one makes it clear it is a franchise with Mark Greaney once again doing the honours. The good news is that it avoids the Ryan family and the worse elements of the “Campus team”, the main character here is Dominic Caruso on a bit of a solo mission of revenge.As a senior US intelligence official goes on the run with critical data a lot of people are after hi [...]

    8. I absolutely love Tom Clancy books. I love these types of spy thriller books anyway, but Clancy is my all-time favorite. This book is one of the first ones I have read that was written by another author after his untimely death in 2013, but it totally stands up to anything Clancy wrote himself. If you have read any of the other 'Campus' series books then you will know what to expect. Unfortunately, Jack Ryan Jr is not featured in this at all, but its still got all the aspects of the series. The [...]

    9. Seriously great book! It seems like I read somewhere that Mark Greaney was able to write the book based on plot outlines Tom Clancy had completed before he died. I don't think Clancy could ask for a better author to write his last books. It's not as good as his Gray Man series, but still excellent.

    10. It was a good book. I enjoyed reading it. It was full of action/adventure. It had a good story to it,for sure.

    11. I think Tom Clancy would be very proud of the excellent work you have done to continue his legacy of his work

    12. (I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.)Dominic Caruso. Nephew of President Jack Ryan. FBI agent and operator for The Campus, a top secret intelligence agency that works off the books for the U.S. government. Already scarred by the death of his brother, Caruso is devastated when he can't save a friend and his family from a terrorist attackEthan Ross was a mid-level staffer for the National Security Council. Now he's a wanted fugitive on the run with [...]

    13. 's description of the book starts with ""One ofTom Clancy's most chronicled characters Dominic Caruso", which isn't really true. For me Dominic Caruso was only a leaser character in the Jack Ryan Jr. books and I had some aprehension about a book that only featured Dominic. Luckily that fear was unfounded. The story brings a bit more life to Dom than the previous books did, and he works well as a main character. The story itsellf is very good, with multiple enemies to keep the story interesting. [...]

    14. Was originally only going to give it a fourbut not really sure why!On reflection definitely worth a five star in my opinion.I think it was the introduction of the last set of players to try and obtain the information, but in the end that just added to the completeness of the story. Because in reality they all would have wanted what that sniveling little shit stole anywayI may call Ethan a snivelling little sit, maybe he should be a pretentious snivelling little shitwas very believable and deserv [...]

    15. What do you do when an idiot with security clearance decides to leak information and then gets way in over his head? Such is the plot of Support and Defend. I normally like Tom Clancy books but this seemed a lot more far fetched than most and ran on for a little too long. The main character of Dom is not only the nephew of the President but travels all over the world amassing mad skills including becoming a master of Krav Maga - the Israeli martial art. He is a sympathetic character but really e [...]

    16. This is my third Read by Greaney (the other two the 1st two Gray Man novels.) Not since I discovered Alan Furst years ago have I been so excited at the prospect of another dozen unread Greaney books awaiting me. I may be late to jump on this thriller express but I'm sure for years I won't be the last. Well done Markanks for all your hard work!

    17. Lots of action and intrigue. Great stuff.Dom Caruso's trainer and good friend is killed in front of his eyes as an unknown force attack's the friend's home and family killing all but Dom. As Dom seeks to discover who killed his friends and why, his mind is set on revenge for the killer and the traitor within the US government organization that unknowingly set the plan in action.

    18. Was curious to see what Mark Greaney would do without Tom Clancy. I was quite happy with it and he definitely bumps up the action and humour. It was great to see the story focus on usually background characters in Dom Caruso and Adara Sherman. Overall, I really liked it.

    19. Yeah, this is done right! In honour of Clancy, action packed, believable, touch of humour, technical at times. A fun ride. Greaney has hit it right on the nail. Worth continuing the series if the quality remains this high! Recommended reading.

    20. I was skeptical about reading Jack Ryan books written by authors other than Tom Clancy, but Mark Greaney has done a first class job here.Not quite so much equipment detail as in Clancy's books, but still a very good read.

    21. This book is a lot less complicated plot-wise than most in the series. It's more of a straight forward action book than a geopolitical thriller. Still, it is well written and an easy, fast paced read. Tom Clancy may be gone but this book shows that his legacy is in good hands.

    22. This was a good book. It was an introduction to Dom Caruso, I liked it. It was simple and informative. A good read for a future character in the Campus novels.

    23. Great teadExciting to the end. Greater is a worthy successor to Tom Clancy. Dom as the main character now is a good replacement for his uncle.

    24. Great readLots of action and excitement . Also, lots of acronyms, but you can just scan over them. A little bit of filler stuff byt again, easy to scan over.

    25. A different kind of story for the Clancy Jack Ryan saga. The book was a good read, but never seemed to get the momentum and pace I expect from the Clancy world and from Mark Greaney.

    26. I put off reading this book for years as Dominick Caruso is one of my least favorite characters. However, the book is very well written and does a good job at character development.
