Mark Greaney

The co-author of the latest Tom Clancy novel will be at Fort Hood next week.

Mark Greaney, co-author of three of Clancy’s No. 1 New York Times bestsellers, will be at the Clear Creek Shopping Center at 4 p.m. on Dec. 2 to sign copies of “Commander in Chief.”

The latest installment in the Jack Ryan series, “Commander in Chief,” uses a heavy dose of content that’s not far from modern-day headlines.

“In ‘Commander in Chief,' Russian President Valeri Volodin’s ambitions are foiled in Dagestan and he faces a difficult choice,” according to a release from the book’s publisher, Penguin Random House. “The oligarchs who support him expect a constant flow of graft, but with energy prices cratering, the Russian economy sputters to a virtual halt. Unable to grow the Russian market at home, his hold on power relies on expansion abroad—a plan that has been thwarted by the United States in the past.”

The hero — U.S. President Jack Ryan — “sees a guiding hand in the worldwide chaos, but before he can act he needs proof.

“With 50,000 Russian troops poised to invade a NATO nation, can Jack Ryan move swiftly enough to stop Volodin’s grand plan of global conflict and conquest? Or will he succeed in changing the balance of world power forever?” according to the release.

The book hits bookstores nationwide on Dec. 1. | 254-501-7468
