Author Info
Tom Clancy
An insurance executive well into his late 30s, Tom Clancy first hit fame and fortune with the spy thriller "The Hunt for Red October", the sales of which soared when President Ronald Reagan called it a personal favorite. Though Clancy was never a military man himself, due to poor eyesight, he closely studied declassified military documents and used the technical information he gleaned from them to write his best-selling thrillers. Most of Clancy's novels feature ex-marine Jack Ryan, an intelligence analyst working with the CIA. Often the reluctant hero, Ryan battles foes such as international terrorists and powerful drug lords, often finding himself deeply immersed in the high-stakes world of espionage.
"As usual, some of the Clancy plotting is fiendishly inventive, and he has a technically sharp command of the realistic detail, like the horrifying use of Ebola as an instrument of war rather than of nature....The book's true spirit lies in its dedication to 'Ronald Wilson Reagan, 40th President of the United States: The Man Who Won the War.'"
"What will the main narrative lines of 'Executive Orders' tell scholars working in, say, 2096 about the Americans of our time?...Clancy's new book shows that the current-day American is alert as never before to the possibility that no American landmark is safe from catastrophe....The book derives much of its action and suspense from the author's talent in exposing the inner workings of endless unseen chambers of our own and other governments...."
"'Executive Orders' is a colossal read, which is praise for Clancy's ability to grind out exquisite details...He is the honest-to God-creator of an exciting genre and a consistent producer of books that thunder, absorb and entertain."
From the Publisher
Annotation Jack Ryan reluctantly agreed to accept the vice presidency of the United States for a year, but when the president is assassinated, he is catapulted to the nation's highest office. With Congress depleted in the same tragedy that killed the president, Ryan is alone as the shattered country faces threats from international and domestic forces.
Editors Note "Debt of Honor" ended with Clancy's most shocking conclusion ever--a joint session of congress destroyed, the president dead. Dazed and confused, the man who only minutes before had been confirmed as the new Vice President, is now told that he is the president--President John Patrick Ryan. Now suddenly, an incalculable weight has fallen on Jack Ryan's shoulders.
