Tom Clancy - Author

About the Author

Thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore’s Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it “the perfect yarn.” From that day forward, Clancy established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013.

Command Authority

Author: Tom Clancy Format: Paperback Release Date: 25/09/2014

Command Authority sees the return of Tom Clancy's greatest hero, Jack Ryan. Decades ago, when he was a young CIA analyst, President Jack Ryan, Sr. was sent on what was supposed to be a simple support mission to investigate the death of an operative who had been looking into suspicious banking activities at a Swiss bank. Ryan's dogged tenacity uncovered not only financial deceit, but also the existence of a KGB assassin, code-named Zenith. He was never able to find the killer. But in the shadowy world of covert operations, nothing stays hidden forever. In the present, a new strongman has emerged in the ever-chaotic Russian republic - the enigmatic President Valeri Volodin. His rise to power was meteoric, but shrouded in deception and treachery. The foundations of his personal empire are built on a bloody secret from his past, and he will eliminate anyone who comes close to that truth. For he has set in motion a plot to return Russia to its former glory and might, with the rest of the world once again trembling in fear of the mighty Bear. When an old friend of the Ryans is poisoned by a radioactive agent, the trail leads to Russia. And Jack Ryan, Jr. - aided by his compatriots John Clark and the covert warriors of the secretive Campus - must delve into an international conflict thirty years in the making, and finish what his father started. With President Ryan fighting a desperate campaign to thwart Russian aggression, and his son fighting a silent war against a ruthless foe, the chances for global conflict grow ever greater - and the possibility of survival may soon be lost for all...Tom Clancy's Command Authority is a brand new full-throttle all-action adventure, and follows Threat Vector and Locked On as the newest Jack Ryan novel.

The Bear and the Dragon INSPIRATION FOR THE THRILLING AMAZON PRIME SERIES JACK RYAN

The Bear and the Dragon INSPIRATION FOR THE THRILLING AMAZON PRIME SERIES JACK RYAN

Author: Tom Clancy Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/12/2013

INSPIRATION FOR THE THRILLING AMAZON PRIME SERIES JACK RYAN . . . A truly brilliant thriller by Tom Clancy, The Bear and the Dragon is a Jack Ryan novel. Newly elected in his own right, Jack Ryan has found that being President has gotten no easier: domestic pitfalls await him at every turn; the Asian economy is going down the tubes; and now, in Moscow, someone may have tried to take out the chairman of the SVR - the former KGB - with a rocket-propelled grenade. Things are unstable enough in Russia without high-level assassination, but even more disturbing may be the identities of the potential assassins. Were they political enemies, the Russian Mafia, disaffected former KGB? Or, Ryan wonders, is something far more dangerous at work here? Ryan is right to wonder. For even while Russian investigators pursue the case, and some of his most trusted eyes and ears, including antiterrorism specialist John Clark, head to Moscow, forces in China are moving forward with a plan of truly audacious proportions. Tired of what they view as the presumption of the West, eager to fulfill their destiny, they are taking matters into their own hands. If they succeed, the world as we know it will never look the same. If they fail. . . the consequences may be unspeakable. The Bear and the Dragon is Tom Clancy at his best - and there is none better. This is the third Jack Ryan thriller, following Without Remorse and Rainbow Six. Praise for Tom Clancy: 'A brilliantly constructed thriller' Daily Mail 'Truly riveting, a dazzling read' Sunday Express

Except a sinister figure known only as the Center is watching the Campus and Jack Ryan Jr's every move. Any misstep will be their last . . . Jack Ryan is back and he's got everything to play for in Tom Clancy's masterful Threat Vector. The Jack Ryan Jr series also includes The Teeth of the Tiger, Dead or Alive and Locked On.
