Summary
A truly brilliant thriller by Tom Clancy, "The Bear and the Dragon" is a John Clark novel. Newly elected in his own right, Jack Ryan has found that being President has gotten no easier: domestic pitfalls await him at every turn; the Asian economy is going down the tubes; and now, in Moscow, someone may have tried to take out the chairman of the SVR - the former KGB - with a rocket-propelled grenade. Things are unstable enough in Russia without high-level assassination, but even more disturbing may be the identities of the potential assassins. Were they political enemies, the Russian Mafia, disaffected former KGB? Or, Ryan wonders, is something far more dangerous at work here? Ryan is right to wonder. For even while Russian investigators pursue the case, and some of his most trusted eyes and ears, including antiterrorism specialist John Clark, head to Moscow, forces in China are moving forward with a plan of truly audacious proportions. Tired of what they view as the presumption of the West, eager to fulfill their destiny, they are taking matters into their own hands. If they succeed, the world as we know it will never look the same. If they fail ...the consequences may be unspeakable. "The Bear and the Dragon" is Tom Clancy at his best - and there is none better. This is the third John Clark thriller, following Without Remorse and Rainbow Six. Praise for Tom Clancy: "A brilliantly constructed thriller". ("Daily Mail"). "Truly riveting, a dazzling read". ("Sunday Express"). Thirty years ago, Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. His first novel, "The Hunt for Red October", catapulted on to 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
