The world's most famous thriller author Tom Clancy has died at the age of 66 years old on October 1, 2013. Clancy died at John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore after a brief unconfirmed illness at this time.
Clancy's accurate but fictional take on the military and it's daily obstacles were a welcoming change to the book genre. His first best-selling book dates back to 1984 with "The Hunt for Red October." Since then he has released best-sellers such as "Patriot Games," "Rainbox Six," "Sum of all Fears," "Clear and Present Danger," "Debt of Honor," "Executive Orders," and other military thrillers.
Clancy's books turned into best-selling video games as well with "Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier," "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction" and "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Double Agent" grossing over 10 million copies sold world-wide.
