Author Tom Clancy Dead at 66

Clancy sold insurance before picking up a pen and writing a myriad of military thrillers, most notably Patriot Games, The Hunt for Red October and Clear and Present Danger. His tales of espionage spawned blockbuster films featuring Harrison Ford, Alec Baldwin, and most recently Ben Affleck, as Clancy’s most famous protagnoist, Jack Ryan.
A cause of death has not been announced.
