Tom Clancy: Master of War – Rolling Stone's 1994 Profile

In the story – an original by Clancy, who died earlier this week – Ryan kicks off his career after 9/11 and the war in Afghanistan. He's tasked with stopping a villainous Russian, played by Kenneth Branagh, from carrying out a terrorist attack to cripple the U.S. economy. Keira Knightly plays Ryan's love, Cathy, while Kevin Costner plays Williams Harper, Ryan's handler. Ryan eludes relentless covert forces, consults with Harper and opens up to Cathy about his real job. But, as Harper warns, "Sometimes the ones closest to us are the ones we should trust the least."
