Tom Clancy - Executive Orders
THE US PRESIDENT IS DEAD - AND THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD FALLS ON JACK RYAN'S SHOULDERS, IN TOM CLANCY'S MOST EXTRAORDINARY NOVEL
A runaway Jumbo Jet has crashed into the Capitol Building in Washington, leaving the President dead, along with most of the Cabinet and Congress. Dazed and confused, the man who only minutes before was confirmed as the new caretaker Vice-President is told that he is now President of the United States.
President John Patrick Ryan.
But how do you run a government without a government? Where do you even begin? Ryan knows that the eyes of the world are on him now - and many of them are unfriendly. In Beijing, in Tehran and even in Washington, there are those eager to take advantage. Soon they will make their moves; soon they will present Jack Ryan with a crisis so great even he could not imagine it.
'A potent mixture of thriller and Washington power novel. Everyone who has ever fantasised about cleaning up government and showing the wretched politicians how it should really be done will enjoy the way that Clancy's hero fights his corner, while at the same time being swept up in a plot which is complex and rapid enough to seduce most readers... just the thing.'
