A great fast paced & suspenseful espionage thriller. An international organization of killers is threatening to plunge the world into chaos by assassination & terror. Now two super-agents, one CIA & the other KGB (and longstanding personal enemies) must work together and find & destroy this group before they succeed.
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.
America's top suspence novelist takes ob two supreme challenges; TO DEPICT CONVINCINGLY A PAIR OF GENIUSES AND TO CONFRONT THEM WITH A SEEMING IMPOSSIBLE TASK- ALMOST UNAIDED, TO SAVE WESTERN CIVILIZATION.
