In THE MATARESE CIRCLE, a century-old conspiracy to create chaos in the world is uncovered by superagent Baywolf Agate and his Russian counterpart. Hunted by their own secret agencies, they chase all over the world seeking the root of this ultimate evil in an attempt to stop the momentum. Stephen Lang's deep, emotive voice draws the listener into the web of deceit and conspiracy, which involves every facet of the world's economy and politics. Lang's performance captures the tension between good and evil that Ludlum has created. This tension, combined with the plot, becomes an unstoppable force that feeds upon itself until it erupts in the destruction of the Matarese, for now. M.B.K

This Ludlum book really is a thriller; good reading. Not a new book so I can't remember exactly what the storyline is. I have it for several years intending to read it again but decided to list it here.

I think this is Ludlum's best -- a tale of two archenemies recognizing a global threat and reluctantly (but urgently) joining forces at the height of the Cold War. I had trouble putting it down both times I read it.
