    The Russians have purchased a secret submarine base from the Norwegians - but you're not going to believe how the transaction was done.
     
    Meanwhile, Russian President Valeri Volodin is in dire after his ambitions are foiled in Dagestan. The oligarchs who support him expect a constant flow of graft, but with energy prices cratering, the Russian economy sputters to a virtual halt. Unable to grow the Russian market at home, Volodin's hold on power relies on expansion abroad — a plan that has been thwarted by the United States in the past.

    But this time Volodin has determined that an indirect approach is the best. A series of devastating attacks take place - all appearing unrelated - is the best camouflage in a campaign to create worldwide chaos.

    While his intelligence agencies race to uncover the truth behind the attacks, Jack Ryan struggles to unite a distrustful coalition of Western nations against the Russian dictator.

    With fifty thousand Russian troops poised to invade a NATO nation, can the American President to stop Volodin’s grand plan of global conflict and conquest? Or will he succeed in changing the balance of world power forever?
