Deep in the Austrian mountains lies a remote hideaway—the fortress-like nerve center of an ominous movement, the Brotherhood of the Watch. American agent Harry Latham has penetrated this neo-Nazi organization, born in the days after the Third Reich’s defeat and with deadly tentacles reaching the United States and beyond. Now, after three years in deep cover, on the eve of his most spectacular success, Harry Latham has disappeared.

Drew Latham, Special Officer for Consular Operations in Paris, is frantic to discover his older brother’s fate. But when he receives the sudden good news that Harry has surfaced, gut-twisting doubts arise. Has Harry’s cover been blown? And if so, why has the Brotherhood let him live? To find the answers, Drew Latham takes on his brother’s identity, and steps directly into the crossfire between the assassins gunning for Harry—and those who want Drew himself dead.

    " Great thriller - fast paced, plenty of action, and an interesting (if sometimes slightly unbelievable) plot. Has one of the most interesting "climaxes" I've ever read in a novel. I've always been a Ludlum fan, and this read does nothing to change that! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura | 1/19/2014

    " Whoever told me I should read Robert Ludlum (because of my fondness for John Le Carre) was, well, mistaken. This book was terrible -- for so many reasons. The writing was terrible, the plot was not even remotely plausible,the characters were not even worthy of being called characters... sigh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 1/15/2014

    " Typical Ludlum thriller, political espionage. I like Ludlum. He always entertains me. "

    " Good; Fighting the rise of the 4th Reich "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shirlee | 1/4/2014

    " It's an old Ludlum, but somehow I missed it the first time. Funny how much of it still resonates almost 10 years after it was published. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liesl | 12/23/2013

    " I actually gave up on this one. Couldn't get into it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Priyanka | 12/8/2013

    " The thrill began when I opened page 1 and didn't end till I finished the book! Killer read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 11/30/2013

    " If you want a good conspiracy story, just add Nazis "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cristobal | 11/28/2013

    " Ludlum's earlier stuff is much, much better. talk about stilted, mellow-dramatic dialog. it got better towards the middle, but man, you had to fight through the first few hours just to get there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff Mayo | 11/8/2013

    " Good, not great. A little predictable and the constant cliffhangers in every chapter get a little tedious. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Catherine | 8/31/2013

    " Fighting the rise of the Fourth Reich, dead people who aren't dead, spies and many a classic Ludlum plot twist, even if some of them are a tad obvious, make The Apocalypse Watch an enjoyable read. However, at 790 pages, it is quite a hefty read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie | 7/27/2013

    " Beware of the 4th Reich. Ludlum can make any scenario real and the most outlandish conspiracy come to life in vivid detail. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 3/10/2013

    " Unrealistic/entertaining/get's old if you don't make it a quickie "

    " recommended by my mom. read it junior/senior year in HS first lundlum book i ever read. started me on a lundlum kick in which i think the next 4 books i read were ludlum (including bourne trilogy). great ending, always thought would be a cool movie. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James | 1/7/2013

    " Really horrible thriller that for some reason I thought was really great when I read it in high school. Also served as the basis of a truly awful made-for-TV movie starring Patrick Bergin and Virginia Madsen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 12/19/2012

    " Read many of Ludlum's enjoyable books in high school in the 70s. Page turners. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gary Barrentine | 12/10/2012

    " A lot of people and things to keep track of. "

    " A staple suspense thriller, my introduction to the genre... "
