Newly elected, Jack Ryan has found that being President is not easy: domestic pitfalls await him at every turn; there's a revolution in Liberia; the Asian economy is going down the tubes; and now, in Moscow, someone may have tried to assassinate the chairman of the SVR - the former KGB - with a rocket-propelled grenade. Were the potential assassins political enemies, the Russian Mafia, or disaffected former KGB? Or is something far more dangerous at work here? While Ryan dispatches his most trusted eyes and ears, including black ops specialist John Clark, to find out the truth of the matter, forces in China are moving ahead with a plan of truly audacious proportions. If they succeed, the world will never look the same again.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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.” 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 novelist is giving so full a picture of modern conflict, equally adeptly depicting those at the top and bottom of military and intelligence systems.” London Sunday Times
“Builds to an excitingly cinematic climax as Ryan toils to bring the world back from the brink of nuclear war.” Entertainment Weekly
“Once Clancy pulls the trigger…nobody can touch his gift for describing combat.” People
“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.” 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.” Montreal Gazette
“Interesting characters...too-real plotting.” Florida Times-Union
“Clancy manages to thrill…The guts, the fun of these books, the high-tech devices, the ingenious schemes and the inside look at military tactics. Clancy delivers here.” 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.” Houston Chronicle
“The Bear and the Dragon works…Hypnotic appeal.” Fort Worth Star-Telegram
“Megasuspense…thrilling.” Indianapolis Star
“Each thread carries a handbook’s worth of intoxicating, expertly researched—seemingly inside—information, about advanced weapons of war and espionage, about how various governments work, complemented always with ponderings about the tensions between individual honor and the demands of state. Add to that the excitement for Clancy fans of this being the first novel to feature not just Jack Ryan but also, in significant subordinate roles, Jack Clark and Ding Chavez…and you’ve got a juggernaut that’s going to hit #1 its first week out and stay there for a good while.” Publishers Weekly
