Representatives for G.P. Putnam's Sons were not immediately available to comment.

Clancy's 20 books - starting with 1984's "The Hunt for Red October" and continuing through "The Sum of All Fears," "Rainbow Six" and the upcoming "Command Authority" - painted detailed stories of the world of spies, soldiers and politicians.
