A little dated (set in the 80's) but still a very good spy novel. Plot twists enough to keep the interest strong right up til the end of the book.

Good suspense thriller with lots of suspense. David Morell reminds me of Robert Ludlum's style of writing.

Two orphans boys, made into brothers, then made into top assassins. Their handler/father turns and hunts them. Very good cat and mouse action. No fancy computer action like the recent Bourne movies or Alias TV show. Just a lot of vintage spy-work and intrigue where you really needed to know where things where and who to trust. The entire book was fast moving. Easy to ready and exciting.

If you aren't familiar with David Morrell just need this book. I liked this author so much, I have all his books as "keepers". This story is about two orphans boys bonded by friendship, and devoted to a mysterious man called Eliott/
