Thomas Clancy (1947 – 2013) was a bestselling American novelist best known for his technically-detailed espionage and military-science stories set during and after the Cold War.
The Sum of All Fears is the sequel to Clear and Present Danger (1989) with Jack Ryan, who is now the Deputy Director of Central Intelligence. He tries to stop a crisis where Palestinian and former East German terrorists conspire to bring the United States and Soviet Union into nuclear war.
A number one NY Times blockbuster, the book became the 2002 American spy thriller film directed by Phil Alden Robinson. The film, which is in the Jack Ryan film series, starred Ben Affleck as a younger CIA analyst.
EXCEPTIONAL SIGNED COPY. Very tight, bright, clean copy in a brilliant dj. Virtually "As New" but for minute crimping at the head and foot of the immaculate unclipped dust jacket. No previous ownership or remainder marks. Book will be shipped boxed.
