He's the sales blurb for Tom Clancy's new book: Ruthless.com

  A new novel from one of the bestselling
  authors in the world, Ruthless.com is a
  potent blend of international power politics,
  intrigue, and cutting-edge military high-tech.
  When the President of the USA bows to
  commercial pressure to deregulate computer
  encryption code, he paves the way for
  potential disaster as terrorists have possible
  access to the national defence computers and
  the security of the country is seriously
  undermined. Sure enough, an armed nuclear
  submarine becomes the target of a powerful
  terrorist group who plan to hijack it and
  demand the largest ransom in history. Roger
  Gordian, CEO of America's largest computer
  company, understands the danger and has the
  resources to act against them before it's too
