About the Author

Thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore s Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it the perfect yarn. Since then Clancy has established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense.

"Once Clancy pulls the trigger...nobody can touch his gift for describing combat."--People

"Those who like heart-stopping action in their thrillers will not be disappointed...Entertaining and eminently topical...Clancy still reigns. The publication of The Bear and the Dragon reminds his fans that he is not likely to be dethroned any time soon."--The Washington Post

"Exhilarating...You'd have to be numb not to be impressed by the scale of [Clancy's] ambition, his feel for the way information now flashes instantaneously across the globe, his mastery of technological developments. No other novelists is giving so full a picture of modern conflict, equally adeptly depicting those at the top and bottom of military and intelligence systems."--The London Sunday Times

"The most intricately plotted and in some ways the most satisfying of his military-techno thrillers since The Hunt For Red October...There's enough new technology to satisfy the most demanding Clancy fan...A juicy novel within a novel, full of heavy artillery, intrepid aviators and shrewd generals."--The Orlando Sentinel

"Clancy has a knack for stories that appear to come out of the daily headlines. The Bear and the Dragon confirms his title as a master of techno-thrillers."--The Montreal Gazette

"Interesting characters...too-real plotting."--The Florida Times-Union

"Clancy manages to thrill...The guts, the fun of these books, are the high-tech devices, the ingenious schemes and the inside look at military tactics. Clancy delivers here."--The Denver Post

"Clancy is a master of detail--especially those having to do with military action and weapons...And he builds strongly moral, attractive characters, ones we would like to emulate."--The Houston Chronicle

"The Bear and the Dragon works...Hypnotic appeal."--The Fort Worth Star-Telegram
