NEW YORK -- Tom Clancy's next novel will be an all-star reunion.
The author is bringing together such favorite characters as Jack Ryan and John Clark for "Dead or Alive," a thriller set in the post-Sept. 11 age of terrorism.
Publisher G.P. Putnam's Sons, an imprint of Penguin Group (USA), announced Wednesday that it plans a first printing of 1.75 million copies when the book comes out in December.
Clancy is known for such best-sellers as "The Hunt for Red October" and "Patriot Games."
