Ordenes ejecutivas

Debt of Honor ended with Tom Clancy's most shocking conclusion ever: a joint session of Congress destroyed, the President dead, most of the Cabinet and the Congress dead, the Supreme Court and Joint Chiefs likewise. Dazed and confused, the man who only minutes before had been confirmed as the new Vice-President of the United States is told that he is now President. President John Patrick Ryan. And that is where Executive Orders begins. Ryan had agreed to accept the vice-presidency only as caretaker for a year, and now suddenly, an incalculable weight has fallen on his shoulders. How do you run a government without a government? Where do you even begin? With stunning force, Ryan's responsibilities crush in on him. He must calm an anxious and grieving nation, allay the skepticism of the world's leaders, conduct a swift investigation of the tragedy, and arrange a massive state funeral - all while attempting to reconstitute a Cabinet and a Congress with the greatest possible speed.

Tom Clancy has written remarkable novels before, but nothing comparable to the timeliness and drama of Executive Orders. Filled with the exceptional realism and intricate plotting that are his hallmarks, it attests to the words of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: "This man can tell a story.""@en

  • "Jack Ryans schwerste Stunde Bei einem Flugzeugangriff auf das Kapitol kommt der amerikanische Präsident ums Leben. Spezialagent Jack Ryan, vor Kurzem zum Vizepräsidenten ernannt, muss von einem Tag auf den anderen die Amtsgeschäfte übernehmen. Derweil nutzen Amerikas Feinde ihre Chance: China und Taiwan stehen kurz vor einem Krieg, und der Iran plant, amerikanische Grossstädte mit einem tödlichen Virus zu verseuchen ... Tom Clancy, geboren 1947, arbeitete lange Jahre als Versicherungsagent. Eine Meuterei auf einem sowjetischen Zerstörer regte Clancy dazu an, seinen ersten Thriller, 'Jagd auf Roter Oktober' zu schreiben. Das Buch wurde auf Anhieb ein internationaler Erfolg, der sich in der Verfilmung mit Sean Connery in der Hauptrolle wiederholte. Seither ist Tom Clancy der Erfolg treu geblieben, seine Romane belegen regelmässig über Wochen hinweg die ersten Plätze der internationalen Bestsellerlisten, die Verfilmungen mit Harrison Ford als Jack Ryan waren ausnahmslos Kassenschlager. Wie realistisch und gut recherchiert seine Bücher sind, zeigt die Tatsache, dass der Autor nach den Anschlägen vom 11. September von der amerikanischen Regierung als spezieller Berater hinzugezogen wurde - in 'Befehl von oben' hatte er ein Szenario entworfen, dass der späteren Realität erschreckend nahe kam."
