Best-selling author Tom Clancy has died.
Penguin Group (USA) said Wednesday morning that Clancy died Tuesday in Baltimore. The publisher did not disclose a cause of death.
Clancy arrived on the best-seller list in 1984 with "The Hunt for Red October."
A string of other popular books soon followed, including "Red Storm Rising," "Patriot Games," and "Clear and Present Danger."
Charlottesville and Albemarle County played a role in "Teeth of the Tiger," which prompted controversy, according to the Hook. The book uses a local mall as the setting of a multiple homicide by an Islamic terrorist.
Clancy was 66.
