4 cassettes (abridged)
Read by Edward Herrmann
'Debt of Honor' ended with Tom Clancy's most shocking conclusion, with John Patrick Ryan now President of the United States of America.
Ryan had agreed to accept the vice-presidency only as a caretaker for a year, and now suddenly an incalculable weight has fallen on his shoulders. With stunning force, his responsibilities crush in upon him. He must calm an anxious and grieving nation, allay the skepticism of the world's leaders, conduct a swift investigation of the tragedy, and arrange a massive state funeral - all while attempting to reconstitute a Cabinet and Congress with the greatest possible speed.
But that's not all. Many eyes are upon him now, and many of them are unfriendly. In Beijing, Tehran, and other world capitals, including Washington DC, there are those eager to take advantage where they may, some of whom bear a deep animus towards the United States - some of whom, from Ryan's past, harbor intense animosity toward the new President himself. Soon they will begin to move on their opportunities; soon they will present Jack Ryan with a crisis so great even he could not imagine it.
