"Brothers" is Goldman's sequel to "Marathon Man". An excerpt from the back cover: "With several savagely violent, seemingly unlinked events, "Brothers" begins. And what follows is a stunning international thriller with more surprises, more twists, and more suspense than anything this master storyteller has ever written before." I haven't read this book. I started it and once I encountered the espionage elements, I stopped reading it. In other words, I don't like espionage fiction for the most part. But for those who like espionage, Goldman writes with a lively, action packed style. Just think of "Marathon Man".
