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.
