Writer Tom Clancy Dies At 66
Originally published on Wed October 2, 2013 4:22 pm
Best selling author Tom Clancy died today; he was 66.
His top-selling novels helped forge a new genre of military fiction that gave readers detailed knowledge of the Pentagon and the Soviet war machine.
Best-sellers included “A Clear and Present Danger,” “Patriot Games” and “The Hunt For Red October,” which inspired the 1990 film of the same name.
Joseph Finder writes thrillers, and joins Here & Now to discuss Clancy’s legacy.
