Tom Clancy Support and Defend: A Campus Novel

Mark Greaney. Putnam, $28.95 (512p) ISBN 978-0-399-17334-9
Tom Clancy, who collaborated with Greaney on 2013's Command Authority, would have approved of this solid, fast-paced continuation of his series featuring FBI man Dominic Caruso, an agent with the off-the-books intelligence organization known as "The Campus." Dominic is in India learning the Israeli fighting system Krav Maga from Arik Yacoby, a retired member of the Israeli Defense Forces. After Arik and his family are murdered by unknown terrorists, Dominic vows revenge on those responsible. In America, Ethan Ross, a deputy assistant director in the National Security Council, has been passing secret information to the International Transparency Project, an organization seeking government accountability. The arrogant, narcissistic Ethan loves the feeling of power he gets from intelligence trafficking, but soon finds himself in serious trouble when a member of an elite unit within the Iranian Revolutionary Guards sets in motion a plan to kidnap him and secure his trove of secret information. All these characters wind up in a violent confrontation, with Dominic playing the lead role in taking down the evildoers. Clancy readers will hardly notice that Tom is no longer with us. (July)
