Publisher Comments:

El autor de best sellers #1 del New York Times y de la exitosa novela Vivo o muerto “es el rey supremo del popular género de suspenso”.* Ahora, en una historia que va desde los remotos paisajes del Medio Oriente marcados por la guerra hasta el caos sangriento en la frontera de los Estado Unidos con México, Tom Clancy ofrece una novela alucinante que es alarmantemente parecida a la realidad.
 
El ex-SEAL de la Armada Maxwell Moore—quien trabaja encubierto para la División de Actividades Especiales de la CIA—llega a una cita para hacerse cargo de un prisionero talibán de alto rango. Pero la reunión de un giro terrible que ni Moore ni ninguno de sus jefes veía venir. Sin dejarse intimidar, no teniendo el fracaso como opción, Moore continúa su búsqueda de la verdad, dejando muchos muertos a su paso…asesinados por aquellos para quienes el secreto es la mayor de las armas.
 
Luego llega una revelación impactante: Dos de las mayores amenazas para la seguridad de los Estados Unidos han foriado una alianza nefasta. Después de años de planificación, los talibanes han llegado a un acuerdo con un despiadado cartel de drogas mexicano par el que suministrarán opio. Para el cartel, es una cuestión de dinero, poder y control absoluto del tráfico de drogas. Pero para los talibanes es una oportunidad largamente esperada: explotar los carteles a llevar el fuego de la yihad al corazón de los infieles.

Synopsis:

The #1 New York Times-bestselling author and master of the modern day thriller returns with his All-Star team.

Theres a new strong man in Russia but his rise to power is based on a dark secret hidden decades in the past. The solution to that mystery lies with a most unexpected source, President Jack Ryan. 

Synopsis:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Tom Clancy is back and the stakes have never been higher.

Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Qiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan.

The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missile endangers the US Navy's plans to protect the island. Meanwhile, Chinese cyberwarfare experts have launched a devastating attack on American infrastructure. It's a new combat arena, but it’s every bit as deadly as any that has gone before.

Jack Ryan, Jr. and his colleagues at the Campus may be just the wild card that his father needs to stack the deck. There's just one problem: someone knows about the off-the-books intelligence agency and threatens to blow their cover sky high.

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." Since then Clancy has established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense.

Peter Telep is a New York Times-bestselling author who has written almost forty novels spanning many genres, including science fiction, fantasy, military action/adventure, medical drama, and film, television, and video game tie-ins. A produced screenwriter of both live action and animation, he teaches creative writing, fiction writing, and scriptwriting courses at the University of Central Florida.
