    " Disappointing, the use of Jamacan slang makes it difficult to read. Ludlum can do much better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alicia | 2/11/2014

    " This book was completely entertaining for the first 200 pages, and then completely fell apart. The plot was very thin, major focus on action. I wouldn't recommend it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dina | 2/11/2014

    " Finally finished it. Not his best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rohan Jolly | 1/20/2014

    " not that good. give it a miss "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ronald Ball | 1/16/2014

    " This was my first Robert Ludlum book so I did not know what to expect. To me it started out very slow and a lot of characters were introduced. It was difficult at times to follow all of the characters as many were short lived, literally. The story got more interesting about midway through it and finished well. It was a bit outdated but held up well. It reminded me quite a bit of Ian Fleming. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 BoekenTrol | 1/14/2014

    " I read this book too long ago to write a proper review. Will re-read and add my review later. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joel | 1/7/2014

    " This is written by the same person who came up with Jason Bourne? Enough said. "

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

    " This is a kind of adventure story. I liked it when I read it about five years ago. It describes the life in a faraway land unknown to many. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerry Ryan | 1/3/2014

    " I've read this book years ago,just have to do again.Great book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cameron | 12/25/2013

    " 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 Judith | 10/25/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nick | 1/10/2013

    " The plot had potential but the ending felt rushed. Not as good as other Ludlum books I've read. "

    " This was the first Robert Ludlum book I read and probably the first "proper" espionage novel I read too. I can't actually remember too much about it I'm afraid, which makes this review more or less pointless I suppose! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sam | 7/22/2011

    " Very interesting plot... with enough twists that kept me interested.

    I found the "super-natural" part of the story kind of intriguing also.

    Not bad for a book written in 1974... that I am reading on 2010 "

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.
