Finished Reading: Without Remorse by Tom Clancy


Without Remorse (Jack Ryan Universe, #1)Without Remorse by Tom Clancy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Article: Tom Clancy Has Died


By now most people familiar with books and authors will know that Tom Clancy has died. Tom Clancy wrote the Jack Ryan series of novels, including ‘The Hunt for Red October,’ ‘Patriot Games’ and ‘Clear and Present Danger.’ He was perhaps the author I favoured most and he will be sadly missed.

It’s bucketing down yet again. So very little has been able to be accomplished outside today. No great outdoors for me on this wet and miserable day.
