Don’t Miss the Original Series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan Starring John Krasinski!

Tom Clancy reveals Jack Ryan’s origins in this electrifying #1 New York Times bestselling thriller that pits the former Marine turned family man against a vicious group of international terrorists.

As an American in London on vacation with his family, Jack Ryan never imagined his quick thinking would prevent an assassination attempt on Britain’s royal family and earn him the gratitude of an entire nation—and the scorn of an ultra-left-wing faction of the IRA. Irish terrorist Sean Miller and his followers in the Ulster Liberation Army intend to make sure Ryan pays for his interference in blood. But he’s not the only one they’re after…

With the lives of his pregnant wife and young daughter in mortal danger, Ryan accepts a role as a CIA analyst in order to find Miller and shut down the ULA. Going head to head with a ruthless terrorist is a fool’s errand, but Jack Ryan is the kind of man who will do whatever it takes to protect his family.

Story Locale: England, Washington

Series Overview: From his years as a CIA analyst to assuming the American Presidency, Jack Ryan defends the nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

BLOCKBUSTER MEDIA OPPORTUNITY: In 2018 Amazon will debut their one hour, eight-episode dramatic series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, a modern take on the the iconic character’s origin story starring The Office’s John Krasinski

A BESTSELLING SERIES WITH A FRESH LOOK: This is the second entry in the Jack Ryan series and the third #1 New York Times bestseller of Clancy’s career—now in a modern package featuring John Krasinski as Jack Ryan that will appeal to new readers and longtime fans

THE BASIS FOR A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE: In 1992 Patriot Games was a box office hit starring Harrison Ford in his first appearance as Jack Ryan

A little more than 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—the first of the phenomenally successful Jack Ryan novels—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.” From that day forward, Clancy established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013.

“A novel that crackles!”—The New York Times
