Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The #1 New York Times bestseller in hardcover, on the list for 24 weeks!

President Jack Ryan faces a world crisis unlike any he has ever known, in Tom Clancy's extraordinary new novel...

A high-level assassination attempt in Russia has the newly elected Ryan sending his most trusted eyes and ears — including antiterrorism specialist John Clark — to Moscow, for he fears the worst is yet to come. And he?s right. The attempt has left the already unstable Russia vulnerable to ambitious forces in China eager to fulfill their destiny — and change the face of the world as we know it...

Review:

"Builds to an excitingly cinematic climax as Ryan toils to bring the world back from the brink of nuclear war." Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"Once Clancy pulls the trigger...nobody can touch his gift for describing combat." People

Review:

"Those who like heart-stopping action in their thrillers will not be disappointed....Entertaining and eminently topical....Clancy still reigns. The publication of The Bear and the Dragon reminds his fans that he is not likely to be dethroned any time soon." The Washington Post

Review:

"Exhilarating....You?d have to be numb not to be impressed by the scale of [Clancy?s] ambition, his feel for the way information now flashes instantaneously across the globe, his mastery of technological developments. No other novelist is giving so full a picture of modern conflict, equally adeptly depicting those at the top and bottom of military and intelligence systems." The London Sunday Times

Review:

"Megasuspense...thrilling." Indianapolis Star

About the Author

TOM CLANCY is the New York Times #1 bestselling author of the extraordinary new Jack Ryan novel, The Bear and the Dragon.

Fifteen years ago, Tom Clancy was an insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Decades earlier, he had dreamed of writing a novel. In 1984, his first effort, The Hunt for Red October — about a Russian submarine captain who defects, along with his sub, to the United States — catapulted onto the New York Times best-seller list after U.S. President Reagan pronounced it "non-put-downable." Clancy, who originated the literary genre known as the techo-thriller, has since established himself as a master at building realistic fictional scenarios by "turning up the volume" on current events.

His follow-up novel, Red Storm Rising, provided a realistic scenario arising from a Soviet attack on NATO. Other bestsellers followed: Patriot Games, The Cardinal of the Kremlin, Clear and Present Danger, The Sum of All Fears, Without Remorse, Debt of Honor, Executive Orders, and Rainbow Six. He has also co-authored Every Man a Tiger with General Chuck Horner, Into the Storm: A Study in Command, with General Fred Franks, Jr. (Ret.), and Submarine, Carrier, Armored Cav, Fighter Wing, Marine, and Airborne; and he is a co-creator of the Op-Center, Power Plays, and Net Force series. He lives in Maryland.

The walls of Clancy's office are lined with war games, books on weapons, and government-produced maps, all tributes to his lifelong fascination with technology and the military. The success of his books has resulted in his "adoption" by the military. He is regularly welcomed aboard jets, submarines, and destroyers. Admirals and generals give him access, Pentagon officials debrief him, and many of his books are required reading at our nation's military colleges.

It is this access to a wide variety of sources and information within military and intelligence circles that sets Clancy apart. Although he scoffs at the idea that he has ever breached government security in his books, Clancy does admit that he has been able to tap into what he calls "The Great Chain" — a network of intelligence officers and operatives, military men, defense contractors, and government employees who feed him information.
