    Tough call...I loved the many adventures of Clancy's famed character Jack Ryan, but I think Grisham's novels have been made into better screen adaptations.

    Clancy's novels are perhaps a more thrilling read, but possibly too strategically complicated to translate well on the big screen.

    I'm going to say Grisham only because I don't believe I saw any of the movies of Clancy's books.

    Tom Clancy as he has a better touch with our military structure. Hunt for red October is a classic.

    However if i want justice served then I would go with Grisham as his Runaway Jury is also a classic .

    Being a military history buff, I have to go Tom Clancy.

    Grisham in a landslide, but Clancy has some kick *** video games.

  • Clancy

  • John Grisham's - Pelican Brief is awesome and it's filmed in New Orleans.
