One report I saw, had the military worried about how he knew so much, he was, apparently, surprisingly accurate.

"Executive orders" was brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

He was scarily prophetic, too, which is talked about, here:

Coincidentally, I'm currently reading "Red Rabbit".

I only read one duffer, by Clancy. SSN.

I've read Clive Cussler, too. But, I found Clancy better. In my opinion, he is the best in the genre he pioneered, the military tecnno-thriller.

First class writer shame he died as 66 is not such a great age. I have read most of his books along with lots of Clive Cussler Rip Tom

I've seen several of the movies but not read the books. I see that his latest book was written with a co-author which usually indicates an illness.

Article here.

The NY Times article says President Reagen spoke of "The Hunt for Red October," his first novel, favorably, and it skyrocketed.

I have read all but his last two novels, I think, and enjoyed them all.
