Clancy, who originated the literary genre known as the technothriller, established himself as a master at building realistic fictional scenarios by “turning up the volume” on current events and foreign relations. His second novel, Red Storm Rising, took on a US-Soviet tension by providing a realistic modern was scenario arising from a conventional Soviet attack on NATO. Subsequent best seller included Patriot Games, which dealt with terrorism; Cardinal of the Kremlin, which focused on spies, secrets and star wars; Clear and Present Danger, concerned a war on drugs; and The Sum of All Fears centered on post Cold War attempts by terrorists to rekindle US-Soviet animosity.
