The Aquitaine Progression Author:Robert Ludlum It begins in Geneva. There American lawyer Joel Converse meets a man he hasn't seen in twenty years, a covert operative who dies violently at his feet, whispering words that hand Converse a staggering legacy of death: "THE GENERALS...THEY'RE BACK...AQUITAINE!" Suddenly Converse is running for his life, alone with the world'... more »s most shattering secret. Pursued by anonymous executioners to the dark corners of Europe, he is forced to play a game of survival by blood rules he thought he'd long left behind. One by one, he traces each thread of a deadly progression to the hear of every major government--a network of coordinated global violence that no one believes possible. No one but Converse and the woman he once loved and lost. The only two people on earth who can wrest the world from the iron grasp of Aquitaine.
I have read most of Ludlum's very early books but I think this will be my last.....I need new storylines to keep my interest and the author's material is just too "more of the same"....(most especially now that some of them are appearing in movie format).
As a stand alone story and if you are not overly familiar with Ludlum's work....I think that this will hold your interest.
