Mystery & Suspense

Get an inside look at TOM CLANCY FULL FORCE AND EFFECT from author Mark Greany

Tom Clancy Full Force and Effect

President Jack Ryan is faced with international trouble, as North Korea is determined to obtain an ICBM that can reach the West Coast of the United States. His son, Jack Ryan Jr. must travel quietly with an intelligence agency to try and resolve a global conspiracy.      Dear Reader, The late Tom Clancy famously said, “The difference between reality and fiction? Fiction has to make sense.” In researching my novels, I think of this often as I come across examples of the improbable and the impossible in the real world of geopolitical affairs. When it came time to come up with a plot for the newest book, my editor and I decided North Korea’s attempts to field an intercontinental ballistic missile were a challenge worthy of President Jack Ryan. I dove into the research, and found many aspects of life and politics in the Hermit Kingdom to be both astonishing as well as compelling fodder for a good thriller.
