This is the third in a series of three, but you don't need to have read the previous two (though it helps.) The first two books are character builders and you get to like both Saul and Drew. Saul from "The Brotherhood of The Rose" and Drew from "The Fraternity of the Stone" are part of this espionage thriller. Fast-paced, loaded with action, toss in Nazis, crossing and double crossing... if you liked the Bourne series, this is for you.
this book took the surviving heroes of 2 of my favorite david morrell novels: brotherhood of the rose and fraternity of the stone. this was so good. fast paced, exciting. i loved it.
David Morrell's international thrillers have no equal. Among his classic novels, this story stands as one of his most exciting and brilliant works - a globe-spanning tale that brings together two generations of men and women bound by one murderous legacy.
From the Vatican to the Swiss Alps, from Australia to the heartland of America, the two masterful operatives known as Saul and Drew are being drawn together to solve a violent riddle: Why have ten old men been abducted from around the world? When the agents, weary of their own covert wars, begin to investigate, they are pulled into a terrifying cycle of revenge that began in the heart of World War II - and is now forcing sons to pay for their fathers' darkest sins
Really good suspense book. David Morrell is a GREAT author.
Action/Suspense..assasins on a mission..
This is a good book, despite the fact that it is somewhat obscure and convoluted.
David Morrell has pulled the Catholic church, Hitler and the Nazis, the Nazi " bell", the Holocaust, and a couple of clueless Americans into a story of intrigue and misdirection. You won't know what the book is about until you have read it to the end.
I am not enough of a history expert to know how much of this story is historically correct, but Morrell usually bases his stories in fact.
This book is different from many of the books written by the creator of Rambo. It is, however, a good read.
This book is the last of a trilogy that starts in "The Brotherhood of the Rose". The second book, "The Fraternity of the Stone" introduces a new character, and all three are reunited in "League". I love this series of books, and "League" is probably my favorite of the three.
Morrell starts each book with snippits of history and builds his story on historical facts. They are fast, fun, edge-of-your-seat reads; books you can't put down. I have loved all of the Morrell books I've read, and own a number of them - just to keep re-reading them. Excellent author!
