INV#022316BKSLRo14 Book Like NEWTime and again, Tom Clancy’s novels have been praised, not only for their big-scale drama and propulsive narrative drive, but for their state-of-the-art prescience in predicting future events. In The Bear and the Dragon, the future may be very near handy indeed. Newly elected in his own right, Jack Ryan has found that being President has gotten no easier: domestic pitfalls await him at each and every turn; the Asian economy is going down the tubes; and now, in Moscow, any person will have tried to take out the chairman of the SVR-the former KGB-with a rocket-propelled grenade. Things are unstable enough in Russia without high-level assassination, but much more disturbing is also the identities of the possible assassins. Were the political enemies, the Russian Mafia, disaffected former KGB? Or, Ryan wonders, is something way more dangerous at work here?
