"Undoubtedly Clancy's best yet."-- Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"What sets this book apart is that for the first time, Clancy has gotten inside Jack Ryan's head, finally letting us see the real person behind the super-action hero."-- Boston Globe

"A wild ride...Clancy's storytelling gifts are unmatched in the political/military thriller genre. Executive Orders has everything the Tom Clancy lover needs: An unholy pantheon of foreign heads of state, bomber militia men, sleeper assassins, kidnapping terrorists, good men gone bad and bad men gone worse."-- San Francisco Chronicle

"[Clancy's] in top form. Executive Orders is more complex, more thoughtful, more exciting than anything he's written before."-- Detroit News

"There is no doubting the wizardry of his craft...he is the honest-to-God creator of an exciting genre and a consistent producer of books that thunder, absorb, and entertain."-- Los Angeles Times

Tom Clancy was one of America's most acclaimed authors, best known for his ingeniously crafted military science and espionage novels. Born on April 12, 1947 in Baltimore, Maryland, Clancy developed a fascination for naval history at an early age, a passion he carried into his adult life resulting in highly detailed novels featuring American military. Known for his precision and extensive research, his works hauntingly echoed the geopolitical events of the late 20th century. Clancy's first novel ‘The Hunt for Red October’ published in 1984 brought him to immediate recognition. Thanks to its publication by the Naval Institute Press, he tapped into the thirst for intricate technical details about military operations and hardware. His gripping storytelling resonated with audiences, propelling him to international fame. This success spawned a prolific writing career that involved a series of bestsellers such as ‘Red Storm Rising’, ‘Patriot Games’, and ‘Clear and Present Danger’. Besides his authorial career, Tom Clancy was a co-founder of the video game developer Red Storm Entertainment, where many titles, like the popular "Splinter Cell" series, were inspired by his thrillers. His influence extended beyond the literary world, leaving an indelible mark in popular culture. Despite his passing in 2013, Tom Clancy's legacy endures in his numerous novels and adaptations, reverberating his masterful narratives on global espionage and military strategy.
