He visited them and brought them candy.

He treated them like sons.

He trained them to be assassins.

Now he is trying desperately to have them killed.

Spanning the globe, here is an astonishing novel of fierce loyalty and violent betrayal, of murders planned and coolly executed, of revenge bitterly, urgently desired.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Feliks | 2/5/2014

    " One of the greatest modern spy thrillers. A landmark work. The equal of--and successor to--iconic titles like 'Marathon Man' and 'Odessa File'. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kel | 1/25/2014

    " A great story and easy read. What a luxurious Sunday. Between eating, playing with my kids and watching a little Olympics, I read the whole book in one day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eileen | 1/20/2014

    " Holy crap! if you want to go on a whirl wind adventure, from the first page until the end,then read this book. It is everything an espionage thriller should be and more.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jay | 1/20/2014

    " The premise of this book was interesting, but man did this book drag on forever. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Petrus | 1/18/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 1/13/2014

    " Read most of his books. Thrillers, espionage. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 12/26/2013

    " An engaging spy thriller that isn't outdated even now. Reads fast, mixes up action and plot in a world-wide arena. Bought it at the local thrift store and it was a good deal. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bryan Schmidt | 12/19/2013

    " Amazing read. I've read it twice over a decade ago and I still remember vividly how much I enjoyed it. A true suspense/espionage classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg | 12/19/2013

    " One of my desert island books. I can't get enough of the engaging characters and the premise of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrice Hoffman | 12/10/2013

    " There isn't much I can say except this was a great book. I haven't read any spy novels before this but... I'm definitely a fan of the genre (now). I suggest anyone who's looking for a good read to pick this up. It's pretty old but all the best books are. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan Chapman | 11/19/2013

    " This book was a disappointment. A preposterous premise and little character development. I resorted to skimming toward the end, just wanted it to be over. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April S | 11/5/2013

    " Hmmm . . . very interesting twists and turns, a little brutal. A lot of spy kind of violence. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carol | 8/29/2013

    " I didn't enjoy this book. I chose it because it was recommended by an author I liked. Very difficult to connect with characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brett Newmyer | 4/25/2013

    " This was really one of the best spy novels I've ever read. It was really emotionally charged, which you don't see in a lot of spy novels. It's hard for me to say too much without spoiling anything, but I highly recommend this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shom Biswas | 4/9/2013

    " As Ludlum-esque as a non-Ludlum book can get. And one of the top 5 thrillers read, all time. Slightly unsatisfactory ending, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kot | 4/6/2013

    " I really loved the storyline. I thought it bogged down slightly in the middle. I understand why, however i think it could have been lessened somewhat. I've read it three times over the years so that say's a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaime | 2/14/2013

    " This is an excellent thriller. I like Mr. Morrell's writing style and ability to keep the tension high. Amazingly, I have only read two of his books. I need to read some more of his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 10/20/2012

    " I never hesitate to steal this book off my brother Doug's bookshelf. It's a good solid thriller/spy novel. some of his other books fall short but this one is absolutely great "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike (the Paladin) | 7/6/2012

    " One of my favorite writers from a few years ago. David Morrell is the king of conspiraces from a few years ago. This is the poster child...two orphans raised from a very early age to be part of a group of ultra loyal assasins. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 5/19/2012

    " I read these books a long time ago. They are high action and high adventure spy books. David Morrell is an awesome writer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John Ehrhart | 4/27/2012

    " Too implausible - to formulaic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debi | 12/29/2011

    " Interesting concept. Enjoyed this quite a bit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deanna | 10/2/2011

    " I love almost anything by David Morrell. This was the book that turned me on to his fast paced, heart-stopping style of writing. If you like mystery, action, and page-turning intrigue, read this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 6/5/2011

    " Took me a bit to get into it. Seemed a little slow at first. Ended up being a very riveting book. Being a fan of Spec. Ops/Spy novels this was right up my alley. Loved the time period. I am used to reading more modern (post 9/11) books and this was refreshing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 5/7/2011

    " This book was a disappointment. A preposterous premise and little character development. I resorted to skimming toward the end, just wanted it to be over.
    "

    " Excellent book. Never has a dead mouse excited me so much! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 11/7/2010

    " I read this back in the mid-80's when it first came out in paperback. My son just read it this past week. We have both enjoyed it. Excellent mystery with a few good twists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eileen | 9/26/2010

    " Holy crap! if you want to go on a whirl wind adventure, from the first page until the end,then read this book. It is everything an espionage thriller should be and more.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael | 7/24/2010

    " The book is too predictable, but its a light read. I read this book in two sittings. I consider this book to be like fastfood, seems to be enjoyable at first but when your finished the satisfaction is gone. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chuck | 6/1/2010

    " New author for me. Foster brothers, both CIA, being hunted by their
    boss. Didn't like the characters nor the dialog. Didn't finish.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathi | 5/1/2010

    " Pretty good writing and story line. Some of it was hard to follow since technology has changed so much over the last 30 years since it was written. His tech explanations were kind of hard to follow, but I still enjoyed the story. "
