Inver Brass, a group of high-minded and high-placed intellectuals, sees a monstrous threat to the country in Hoover's unscrupulous use of his scandal-ridden personal files from his half-century in office. They decide to discreetly eliminate him. Then bestselling thriller writer Peter Chancellor stumbles onto a staggering secret that makes his previous books seem like harmless fairy tales...and Chancellor and Inver Brass are on a deadly collision course, spiraling across the country in an ever-widening arc of violence and terror. Chancellor does not know how close his newest novel comes to the shocking truth...or that it will make him live bait in an explosive game...or that it may be the one damning document to survive a showdown that shatters Washington's intelligence community. Plus, hear a preview of Ludlum's riveting thriller The Bourne Ultimatum. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rory Pratt | 2/12/2014

    " My grandmother gave me a bag of Ludlum books when I was in the hospital after a motorcycle accident when I was 19. I read this book first and was completely blown away. I didn't know reading could be like that. It started me reading. After I read all of Ludlum's books I looked for other authors to read. I will always be grateful to my grandmother. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerry Frear jr | 2/7/2014

    " my favorite of all his books "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret | 2/2/2014

    " I have loved every Robert Ludlum book that I've read. Excellent characters and plots! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beverly | 1/20/2014

    " This was the first Robert Ludlum (Bourne Identity) that I read. His early books are great suspense novels. I enjoyed the first couple of Bourne Identity books but the later ones have a lot of violence. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 1/16/2014

    " This is my favorite Ludlum book of all time. I devoured it. It has a bit of historical fiction in it but stays the espionage course as well. I would rate it "R" if it were a movie due to language and some scene description but it's a great read if you like spy novels. Ludlum is a master storyteller. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nathan | 1/14/2014

    " This was a real page turner for me. Did a lot of reading while I sat in the Desert of Saudi Arabia for many months. This was my favorite book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabe Mcqueen | 1/10/2014

    " I love a book that keeps me interested and that I can't figure out. This book had one of the coolest twist endings of any thriller I've ever read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julius Gewarges | 1/9/2014

    " not better than the previous books I read which were total monsters, but nonetheless amazing. this is a Mystery Spy thriller that, with no surprise, contains many twists and turns. This book doesn't just contain one simple plot, but much much more...Alot more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Slarson6 | 1/9/2014

    " Not Ludlum's best work, but still a compelling "conspiracy" plot. Government "spooks", J. Edgar Hoover's death and his secret files, misdirections, red herrings, with shots fired and explosions. All good reasons to read this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori Laird | 1/7/2014

    " this book was published in 1977. i thought the political paralells to this election year were particularly remarkable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 1/7/2014

    " This book had a little sex in it. Not graphic. It took me awhile to get into the book and then I didn't want to stop until I was done. The author weaves a good web of suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 12/30/2013

    " The first 90% of this book is crazy addicting, but the ending, while unexpected, wasn't great. Could have been 100 pages shorter. Best Ludlum I've read, tho. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie Patterson | 12/28/2013

    " This book goes on my "Will read over and over again" shelf! It's one of the few fiction books I've read that left me wondering if it could very well be non-fiction! Excellent writing! Superb plot! A must read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashish Poudel | 12/21/2013

    " nearly to the end. It's a good book. But don't expect as Bourne series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila | 12/16/2013

    " Very exciting book loved it could not put it down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 April | 12/4/2013

    " I felt like I should have loved it and really, I didn't and well, it was disappointing. It should have not been so predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tucki Bailey | 12/4/2013

    " My first of many R. Ludlum books. He was very good at espionage. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Velimir Randic | 11/20/2013

    " Excellent historical thriller of what might have been behind the death of J. Edgar Hoover. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Popebrak | 11/15/2013

    " I didn't realize when I started reading this that this week marks the 40th anniversary of the death of J. Edgar Hoover. Which is kinda funny. . . cause the book starts off with a bunch of guys assassinating Hoover. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rupesh Goenka | 7/25/2013

    " A well conceived plot with lot of twists.. Though the end was somewhat disappointing!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Madhur Mirani | 4/3/2013

    " One word for this book .... "AMAZING" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vivek Padiyan | 2/26/2013

    " A little different from Ludlum's usual novels (which I generally don't like, as a rule). A nice start and a stunning ending, this one's too good.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robbie | 10/30/2012

    " Robbie hasn't read this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tony Totev | 8/9/2012

    " My first Ludlum book! I clearly state that it brought my readings to a new level. Definitely I could tell just by this one book that Robert is one of the greatest story-tellers ever! Don't miss it :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 6/16/2012

    " Political intrigue writer writes a novel to close to the real life events that may him a target. So very Ludlum. Power in knowledge and knowledge of power. I recall this a semi interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe Moss | 2/4/2012

    " I love Ludlum, and this is the one that started my love affair with his writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen | 12/19/2011

    " Personally for me, I didn't find this all that compelling compared to the other Ludlum I have read. I think it might especially be lost on anyone too young to remember J.Edgar Hoover, whose death plays a prominent role in setting up the entire story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christian | 12/12/2011

    " Thought it was a great book. It was hard to put down and extremely original (cough, cough Grisham's Pelican Brief). "
