“A harrowing tale…Clancy keeps you riveted with political intrigue and military maneuvering [and] sends you rushing headlong to the book’s stunning conclusion.”—USA Today

Bestselling author Tom Clancy takes a bold, incisive look at what our nation’s leaders are calling “the new world order.” The time and place: a world at peace, where yesterday’s enemies are tomorrow’s allies. The players: Jack Ryan as the new U.S. President’s National Security Advisor, and his CIA colleagues, John Clark and Domingo Chavez. The crisis: a shocking chain of events in which the wages of peace are as fully complex—and devastating—as those of war.
“[Debt of Honor] traces the financial, political, military, and personal machinations that drive America into the next major global war…A SHOCKER.”—Entertainment Weekly

“If you’re not part of the solution, you must be part of the problem.”

You heard that a lot in the early 1970s, when the country seemed to be teetering on the brink of revolutionary upheaval. Miles Dorn, living quietly in retirement in the U.S., had come a long way from his roots in Central Europe, leaving his past as an assassin and agent provocateur behind him. But as soon as he walks into his house and smells the smoke from a Turkish cigarette, he knows nobody can walk away from the past. It’s always there, and it can reach out at any moment and get hold of you.

He’s recruited for a series of assassinations designed to render his adopted country vulnerable to a political coup. Instead of the elaborate web that’s the staple of conspiracy theorists, he’s one man, working alone.

He’s also a man falling in love, and with a woman a generation too young for him. “We’re the same age, Miles,” she insists. “I’ve known you for exactly as long as you’ve known me.”

Of course he likes the sound of that, but he knows better than to believe it. Just as he knows better than to believe that their love affair—or anything else in his life—has a real chance of working out. But what can he do? Is Dorn part of the solution—or a principal part of the problem?

The Triumph of Evil is a powerful evocation of perilous time in America’s recent past. It’s a thriller on a human scale, and you’ll be stunned by its plausibility and gripped by its suspense.

This Classic Crime Library ebook edition of The Triumph of Evil includes as a bonus the first chapter of the next book in the series, Such Men Are Dangerous.
