To say that this book is fast-paced would be an understatement! Jon Smith, Covert-One operative for the White House is also a bio-molecular scientist as well as an army lieutenant colonel, and is attending a scientific conference in Taiwan when he is ordered by his White House handler, to go to a small island and retrieve a manifest for a cargo ship heading from China to Iraq. Seemed to be a simple enough assignment, but was only the beginning of this harrowing story. The agent he met was gunned down right in front of him and he barely escaped with his own life, and without the document he went there for.
This important document was the crux of this whole story....everyone wanted it!!
I could hardly put this book down! If you like spy thrillers, please pick this one up.
Really really good spy novel!!!
Will the world survive? All you can do is start reading and you don't want to puy it down. A true mystery all the way.
If you are a Ludlum fan don't miss this one.
Fourth in the series, which is very enjoyable. Always a good plot line and if you like this character, agent Smith, you'll like this book.
Convert Operations with the biological father of the President of the U.S. being held hostage. Thrilling.
Novel involving international intrigue: Covert Agent Jon Smith seeks information regarding the Chinese's efforts to create new biological weapons.
I think all of Robert Ludlum's books are awesome. Lots of suspense all the way through.
Good, but somewhat predictable.
