The nutty cahracters are back from the book"Road to Omaha".Chief Watanabe is great,the the two thugs are funny and just great.Read the road to Omaha first.

Evidently Mr Ludlum enjoyed writing both "The Road to Gandolfo" and "The Road to Omaha" -- very different from his usual fare!

"Mac" and his cohorts (not all of whom are willing cohorts) fall into one tense situation after another and will keep you laughing.

"Mac" operates under the assumption that the ends justify the means... and his ends are always meant for the very best!

A wickedly funny Robert Ludlum you've never met before. All the explosive paving of The Bourne Identity, the Byzantine treachery of The Parsifal Mosaic, the relentless action of The Bourne Ultimatum. The Principal Cast: General Mackenzie Hawkings, legend, hero, rogue. Sam Devereaux, bright young lawyer from Harvard, now in the army, can't wait to get out. General Hawken's four ex-wives, a quartet of incredibly endowed women who've formed a club: Hawkin's Harem. The Premise: Kidnap Pope Francesco I, the most beloved pontiff since John XX III. Ransom: One American dollar for every Catholic in the world. The Problem: Pope Francesco I says: "Gentle souls, why not?"
