The
Sum
of All
Fears
Tom Clancy


In the aftermath of Communism's collapse, the Gulf War, the realignment of the world's powers, comes a novel so terrifyingly real, so uncommonly prescient, that it could have been written only by Tom Clancy.

With his "genius for big, compelling plots" and his "natural narrative gift" (The New York Times Magazine), Clancy has written five novels, which now total more than 28 million copies in print.  His most recent book, Clear and Present Danger, was the best-selling novel of the 1980s.

And now he gives us his most remarkable novel yet.

How do you save the United States President from himself?  What if the President is incompetent to deal with the greatest crisis of all?  Jack Ryan never thought he would have to ask those

questions as, the world order changing, he prepares the ground for the Middle Eastern peace plan that, at last, might be the one to work.

But too many groups have invested too much blood.  Shunned by their erstwhile Soviet sponsors, increasingly isolated by the realignment of the Mideast, these terrorists have one more desperate card to play, requiring a degree of ruthlessness never before seen.  With one terrible act, the world is plunged into an instant nuclear crisis - and the floundering President is plunged into the ultimate nightmare.  Forces collide.  Shots are exchanged.  What had seemed to be an isolated and horrible incident appears to each side as the incendiary mischief of the other.  With the world poised on the brink of nuclear war, Ryan and his FBI counterpart, Dan Murray, frantically seek a solution before the chiefs of state lose control of themselves - and the world.

With the exceptional realism and authenticity that have long been his hallmarks, Tom Clancy constructs a novel of unrelenting suspense, a story as explosive as today's headlines.  It is Tom Clancy at his best - and there is no better.

Tom Clancy is the author of The Hunt for Red October, Red Storm Rising, Patriot Games, The Cardinal of the Kremlin, and Clear and Present Danger.  He lives in Maryland.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
