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 2013Mark Greaney has a degree in international relations and political science. In his research for the Gray Man novels, including Agent in Place, Gunmetal Gray, Back Blast, Dead Eye, Ballistic, On Target, and The Gray Man, he traveled to more than fifteen countries and trained alongside military and law enforcement in the use of firearms, battlefield medicine, and close-range combative tactics. He is also the author of the New York Times bestsellers Tom Clancy Support and Defend, Tom Clancy Full Force and Effect, Tom Clancy Commander in Chief, and Tom Clancy True Faith and Allegiance. With Tom Clancy, he coauthored Locked On, Threat Vector, and Command Authority.
"Delivers all the elements that fans expect from the franchise...[Greaney] handles the tech side with grace and has fleshed out the cast and given them depth. Clancy fans will enjoy True Faith and Allegiance."--The Associated Press "A magnificent page turner...Compelling and frighteningly realistic...An artful mosaic that converges with breakneck speed toward the end of the book, bringing the story to a climax and conclusion that are ultimately very satisfying."--New York Journal of Books "Greaney is at the helm of the action-adventure enterprise built by the military maestro from Maryland, this time with a devious yet believable story about radical terrorist attacks in America...Tense, fast-paced action reels out ripped-from-headlines homeland terror attacks. A generation past Red October, the America-hating bad guys have added spyware, hacking, the dark web, and Bitcoins to those ubiquitous AK-47s."--Kirkus Reviews "[Greaney] continues the Tom Clancy/Jack Ryan tradition in a way that would make Clancy extremely happy...Yet another true, fresh, thrilling page-turner."--Suspense Magazine
