When Todd Belknap—a legendary field agent for Consular Operations with a reputation as something of a cowboy— is cut loose from the agency after an operation goes wrong, his best friend and fellow agent is abducted in Lebanon by a militia group with a vicious reputation. When the government refuses to either rescue him or negotiate for his release, Belknap decides to take matters into his own hands.
Meanwhile, hedge fund analyst Andrea Bancroft gets a surprising call—she is to receive an unexpected bequest of six million dollars from a cousin she never met. With one condition—she must agree to sit on the board of the Bancroft family foundation, a charitable organization that is run by the family patriarch, Paul Bancroft. Having never been involved with, or even met, the family—her mother was briefly married to a Bancroft and cut off all contact many years ago—Andrea is intrigued. But the foundation, which is dedicated to doing strategic good deeds, appears less and less benign the more deeply involved she gets. What exactly is their involvement with the “Genesis”—a mysterious group working to destabilize the geopolitical balance at the risk of millions of lives? As events escalate, Todd Belknap and Andrea Bancroft come together and must form an uneasy alliance if they are to uncover the truth behind “Genesis”— before it is too late.

    " Another book that was given to me
    Mixed emotions about this book It is exciting but so unbelievable that I just kept shaking my head in desbelief.
    Enough said "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ali | 4/21/2010

    " This was a good story but really, really wordy. It should also include a dictionary so that you can look up all of the words you've never heard of. It is globe trotting spy thriller, but quite long. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 3/16/2010

    " By no means a great book, but for a thriller it does the job well.

    A bit on the long side with useless details and explanations, but it's a good read that doesn't require you to invest too much time or too much thought in it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 3/14/2010

    " My first Ludlum book and I was nicely surprised. It is fast paced and has well developed action-plot. Good mystery overall and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an interesting read. "

About the Author
Author Robert Ludlum

Robert Ludlum (1927–2001) was the author of twenty-five novels, each one a New York Times bestseller. There are more than 210 million of his books in print, and they have been translated into thirty-two languages. His works include The Scarlatti Inheritance, The Chancellor Manuscript, and, perhaps most famously, the Jason Bourne series—The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, and The Bourne Ultimatum—among others. The Bourne novels were the basis for three blockbuster films. Born in New York City, Ludlum received a BA from Wesleyan University, and before becoming an author, he was a United States Marine, a theater actor, and a producer.
