    Wow, sad - really enjoyed his first 5-6 novels. Red storm rising was my favorite

    Yeah, a shame. Quite young. I remember anxiously awaiting his next book releases and getting them the day they were available and I couldn't put them down once I started reading. I was really hooked. My daughter graduated from Loyola Baltimore and I recall how proud the school was that he was a graduate. He returned and spoke to her class.

    He was assassinated...

    By an as yet undetermined agency...

    For being too close to the truth too often...

    Hey, that could be a book...

    Sixty-six is young. You would think he would have had many more years and books ahead of him.

    I remember reading some of his work when I was in the service. It was amazing how detailed(and close to being spot on accurate) his work was. Maybe I will dust off some of his books and enjoy them again.
