Book Overview: Patriot Games

Tom Clancy reveals Jack Ryan's origins in this electrifying #1 New York Times bestselling thriller that pits the former Marine turned family man against a vicious group of international terrorists.

As an American in London on vacation with his family, Jack Ryan never imagined his quick thinking would prevent an assassination attempt on Britain's royal family and earn him the gratitude of an entire nation--and the scorn of an ultra-left-wing faction of the IRA. Irish terrorist Sean Miller and his followers in the Ulster Liberation Army intend to make sure Ryan pays for his interference in blood. But he's not the only one they're after...

With the lives of his pregnant wife and young daughter in mortal danger, Ryan accepts a role as a CIA analyst in order to find Miller and shut down the ULA. Going head to head with a ruthless terrorist is a fool's errand, but Jack Ryan is the kind of man who will do whatever it takes to protect his family.

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.
