I've read almost every Ludlum book out there, so was surprised to find this title. It's a keeper: covert operative pursuing a phantom, lovely woman introduced into the world of disinformation, and action that just won't quit. You just won't be able to put down this book!
Agent Todd Belknap has been cut loose after an operation goes wrong. When his best friend and fellow agent is abducted, and the government refuses to help, Todd takes matters into his own hands.
Meanwhile, Andrea Newton gets an unexpected call. She has been left a vast inheritance by a cousein she's never met - on the condition that she joins the board of the charitable Newton foundation. Andrea is intrigued, but the foundation appears less and less benign the more deeply involved she gets.
What exactly is their involvement with the 'Genesis' - a mysterious group working to destabilise the goepolitical balance at the risk of millions of lives? As events escalate, Todd and Andrea must form an uneasy alliance if they are to uncover the truth - before it is too late
This was a great mystery by Ludlum. Written after his death, apparently from notes he left behind. A carefully selected author and editor was chosen to prepare and edit this book. I never guested the ending. Usually I can do that with thrillers. But not this time. Good read
