Clancy's debut introduces CIA analyst Jack Ryan in a tale of a Soviet nuclear submarine commander, Marko Ramius, played by Alec Baldwin and Sean Connery respectively in the movie who wants to defect to the US with his sub, while convincing his bosses that it has been sunk. The novel sets the template for Clancy's blend of espionage and military thriller, inaugurating a series that will influence film and TV as well as other authors — not by chance is the hero of 24 called Jack Bauer, and Homeland 's apocalyptic second-season finale was highly Clancy-esque. Ryan advances to near the top of the CIA in a novel about the Reagan-era "war on drugs", reflecting Clancy's closeness to the Republican president. Different US agencies conduct a covert campaign against a Colombian cartel the titular clear and present danger. However, the hero is unusually cast as a quasi-dissident within the agency, left out of the loop initially and pressing colleagues and the president to go public about the operation. However, other works did eerily anticipate the Soviet-Georgia conflict his video game Ghost Recon and the hunting down of Bin Laden Dead or Alive.
