Tom Clancy has lectured at the Central Intelligence Agency, conferred with the White House staff, and has been consulted by international intelligence experts. Yet Mr. Clancy is neither a former intelligence officer nor a naval man. His extensive research into military strategies and advanced technology has sparked a new breed of thriller fiction-authentic, dramatic, and powerful. His phenomenal bestsellers, including The Hunt for Red October and Patriot Games, have sold worldwide, with more than 28 million copies in print.
Tom Clancy died 1st October 2013.
