I have read most of Ludlum's very early books but I think this will be my last.....I need new storylines to keep my interest and the author's material is just too "more of the same"....(most especially now that some of them are appearing in movie format).
As a stand alone story and if you are not overly familiar with Ludlum's work....I think that this will hold your interest.
Anther Ludlum book that will keep our interest. Many twist and turns, intrigue. It would make a good movie.
This book was so close to reality that it was scary. A cabal of generals plotting anarchy and lawlessness so that they can impose a police state that is run by the military.The conspiracy that is discovered by Joel Converse thanks in part to his old schoolmate Preston Halliday turns out to be global. There are members of the military worldwide who are involved in the scheme to seize power worldwide. Converse is on the run fearing for his very life because of the farreaching conspiracy. Converse plays the perfect hero in this novel. The generals are the very embodiment of the forces of evil. The plot in this book is outstanding. Read this book. You will not be able to put it down. A definite page turner.
Classic Ludlum. Global conspiracy, European manhunt, assassins, romance, etc. Very entertaining read.
