When Dunstone, Ltd., offers Alex McAuliff, a geologist, two million dollars to survey Jamaica’s dark interior, there’s a catch: no one can know Dunstone’s involved. But British Intelligence finds out and warns Alex that the last survey team Dunstone dispatched vanished without a trace.

Now Alex knows too much, and he’s a marked man from the moment he lands in Jamaica. But who wants him dead? Dunstone? A rival company? British Intelligence? In this island paradise, a beautiful woman might be a spy and Alex’s only clue to survival is a single mysterious word: Halidon.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cameron | 1/25/2014

    " Compared with most of Ludlum's trash, this one's worth reading on a plane. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorena Haro | 1/18/2014

    " I read this because I loved the Bourne films and don't think I have ever read one of Ludlum's books. I will be reading more of his as this one was excellent. I was surprised to see it was written in 1975 as it hasn't aged at all, it felt really contemporary. "
