Kurdish terrorists have attacked a dam inside the borders of Turkey, threatening the water supply of their very homeland. Its not insanity, but the first step in a deceptively simple plan: force all-out war in the Middle East, drawing in the major players in the New World Order.
The master of international intrigue and explosive action introduces a new hero for a new era of warfare . . . against a new kind of threat. Get ready to meet ex-Navy SEAL Max Moore. For years, ex-Navy SEAL Max Moore has worked across the Middle East and behind the scenes for the Special Activities Division of the CIA, making connections, extracting valuable intelligence, and facing off against America's enemies at every turn. When Moore arrives at a rendezvous to take charge of a high-ranking Taliban captive, the meeting takes a horrific turn that neither Moore nor any of his bosses saw coming. Barely surviving, he tries to bring to safety a Pakistani colonel with information about the debacle, only to have that mission fall prey to forces more powerful and cunning than any he has faced before. Undaunted, and with failure not an option, Moore continues his quest for the truth, leaving many dead in his wake--killed by those for whom secrecy is the ultimate weapon. In a story that races from the remote, war-scarred landscapes of the Middle East to the blood-soaked chaos of the U. S. -Mexico border, Tom Clancy once again delivers a heart-stopping thriller that is frighteningly close to reality.

TOM CLANCY'S GREATEST CHARACTERS FACE THEIR DEADLIEST CHALLENGE After almost a decade, Tom Clancy--the acknowledged master of international intrigue and non-stop military action-returns to the world he knows better than anyone: a world of chaos, caught in the crossfire of politics and power, placed on the edge of annihilation by evil men. But there are other men who are honor-bound to stop the bloodshed and protect their homeland-by any means necessary. . . It is called the Campus. Secretly created under the administration of President Jack Ryan, its sole purpose is to hunt down, locate, and eliminate terrorists and those who protect them at will, without sanction or oversight. A self- sufficient entity, it has no official connection to the American government-a necessity in a time when those in power consider themselves above such arcane ideals as loyalty, justice, and right or wrong. Covert intelligence expert Jack Ryan Jr. and his compatriots at the Campus have waged this silent war in every corner of the world. Now joined by two of his father's closest allies-black ops warriors John Clark and "Ding" Chavez, as well as Brian and Dominic Caruso and Mary Pat Foley-the Campus has come up against its greatest foe: a sadistic killer known as the Emir. The mastermind of countless horrific attacks, the Emir has eluded capture by every law enforcement agency in the world-a fact which the Campus is determined to change. But his greatest devastation is yet to be unleashed, as he plans a monumental single strike that will destroy the heart of America, unless the Campus can take him Dead or Alive. On the trail of the Emir, Jack Ryan Jr. will find himself following in his legendary father's footsteps on a deadly manhunt that will take him and his allies across the globe, into the shadowy arenas of political gamesmanship, and back onto U. S. soil-in a battle to prevent the fall of the West. . . Together for the first time, an all-star cast of Tom Clancy's characters race to ensure the nation's survival and to complete their mission: the desperate search for a madman who may be hiding in plain sight.
Here comes a Clancy first: a new series of novels for young adults starring a team of troubleshooting teens--the Net Force Explorers--who know more about cutting edge technology than their teachers!
Llamado de su retiro, Jack Ryan se da cuenta rápidamente de que los problemas de la paz son tan complejos como los de la guerra: los enemigos se han convertido en amigos, los amigos en enemigos, e incluso las formas de conflicto han cambiado. Lo que no puede entender con tanta premura es qué clase de conflictos debe afrontar. Y cuando uno de estos nuevos enemigos se prepara para atacar el centro de la economía mundial, Ryan, con la ayuda de los oficiales de la CIA John Clark y Domingo Chávez, acepta el desafío. Porque una deuda de honor debe ser pagada, y el precio será muy alto.
Una de las novelas más verosímiles y atractivas de la saga Op-Center. Tom Clancy incorpora a sus habituales tramas de intriga internacional una variante novedosa: la manipulación psicológica. Esta vez Paul Hood, el director de Op-Center, es convocado por la primera dama norteamericana para investigar el origen de ciertas conductas de su esposo, el presidente Lawrence, que se muestra apesadumbrado, misterioso e incluso, temeroso. Hood sospecha que ha caído bajo la influencia de tres importantes hombres de su entorno, que buscarían hacer creer al mundo que las capacidades intelectuales del presidente flaquean para tomar ellos las riendas del gobierno. El equipo de Op-Center cuenta con poco tiempo para convencer al presidente del complot que comienza a cerrarse en torno suyo y evitar así el caos mundial.
The Soviet's most valuable ship -- a new ballistic-missile submarine with their most trusted and skilled naval officer at the helm -- is attempting to defect to the United States. It is high treason on an unprecedented scale, and the Soviet's mission is to seek and destroy her at any cost. If the U.S. fleet can locate the Red October and get her safely to port, it will be the intelligence coup of all time. But the submarine has a million square miles in which to hide and the deadly game of hide-and-seek is on. --------------------------------- NOTE: This book has several passages which could be confused as garbled text, plus 10 to 15 places in the text which could be mistaken for scanning errors.

For years, Tom Clancy has explored the military and security issues of our time in his brilliant series of novels. Now he takes readers deep into the operational art of war--as seen through the eyes of some of America's outstanding military leaders. Based on the story of the greatest American military triumph since World War II--the Gulf War--Into the Storm studies how our leaders forge people, elements, and forces together into a campaign of power and precision. Never before has the art of maneuver warfare been explored so incisively and in such rich, provocative detail. Clancy and General Frederick M. Franks, Jr. --commander of the main force that broke the back of the Republican Guard--take us deep inside the war councils and command posts and up to the front lines. They give us a war that few people really knew--and that television never showed.
The mission for the Op-Center team: capture an Islamic cleric who is stirring up a rebellion against the Indian government. But things go wrong...
Tom Clancy's All-Star lineup is back. Jack Ryan, his son, Jack Jr. , John Clark Ding Chavez and the rest of the Campus team are facing their greatest challenge ever. Jack Ryan, Sr. has made a momentous choice. He's running for President of the United States again and thus giving up a peaceful retirement to help his country in its darkest hour. But he doesn't anticipate the treachery of his opponent, who uses trumped up charges to attack one of Ryan's closest comrades, John Clark. Now, Clark is in a race against time and must travel the world, staying one step ahead of his adversaries, including a shadowy organization tasked to bring him in, all while trying to find who is behind this. Meanwhile, Jack Ryan, Jr. , Ding Chavez, Dominick Caruso and other members of the Campus-the top secret off-the-books intelligence agency founded by Jack Ryan during his first term in the White House-deal with a question of their own: Why is a Pakistani military officer meeting with Dagestani terrorists? The answer will ultimately lead to a desperate struggle, with nothing short of the fate of the world at stake.
Op-Center investigates a plan by outside forces to destabilize an African government and seize diamond mines.
Featuring Red October's charismatic hero, Jack Ryan, Patriot Games puts us on the cutting edge of another type of war, but one no less deadly, the international battle against terrorism. It is fall. Years before the defection of a Soviet submarine will send him hurtling into confrontation with the Soviets, historian, ex-Marine and future CIA analyst Jack Ryan is vacationing in London with his wife and young daughter, when a terrorist attack takes place before his eyes. Instinctively, he dives forward to break it up, and is shot. It is not until he wakes up in the hospital that he learns whose lives he has saved-the Prince and Princess of Wales and their new young son-and which enemies he has made-the Ulster Liberation Army, an ultra-leftwing splinter of the IRA. By his impulsive act, he has gained both the gratitude of a nation and the enmity of its most dangerous men- men who do not sit on their hate. And in the weeks and months to come, it is Jack Ryan, and his family, who will become the targets of that hate. Sweeping from England to Ireland to America with ever-growing momentum, its suspense steadily intensifying as Ryan must summon all the skills and knowledge at his command to battle back against his nemesis, Patriot Games gives us a remarkable set of characters in the most desperate struggle of their lives. As with Tom Clancy's two previous triumphs, it is both a marvel of the storyteller's art-and, as the headlines attest, frighteningly real.
