One of the world's greatest men has been kidnapped! Nobel laureate, financier, and philanthropist Peter Novak - a billionaire committed to fostering global democracy through his Liberty Foundation - has been captured by the Caliph, a near-mythical terrorist who plans to execute him in a matter of days.

Running out of time and hope, Novak's people turn to a man with a history of defeating impossible odds: Paul Janson. For decades, Janson was a legendary covert operative and assassin. Now he has retired, and nothing could lure him back - nothing except Peter Novak, who once saved Janson's life.

Backed by the considerable resources of the Liberty Foundation, Janson assembles a crack extraction team to rescue Novak from his fortress prison. But the operation goes horribly wrong and Janson is marked for death, the target of a beyond salvage order.

Now he is running for his life, pursued by Jessica Kincaid, an agent who, as a student of Janson's own lethal arsenal of tactics, can anticipate his every move. To survive, Janson must outrace a conspiracy that has gone beyond the control of its creators. To win, he must counter it with a conspiracy of his own. Janson's only hope is to uncover the nearly unimaginable truth behind these events - a secret that has the power to foment wars, topple governments, and change the course of history.

    " Ludlum was kind of a 'you win some you lose some' author to me. Some of his stuff was really really good, and some of it was lackluster. The Janson Directive had moments of greatness, with long drags. I don't know, it wasn't everything it could have been. "

    " I liked all the tactical-secret-operations-action in this book. Really cool stuff and Ludlum is a master at it. I also really liked a lot of the philosophy about the world and people in general in this book. I didn't like so much how the book snowballed into a matter of "it's the end of the world!". Too far fetched. He did the same thing in The Sigma Protocol. Just keep it simple! "

    " I doubt that Ludlum wrote much of this book. The descriptions of murder and violence are excessively detailed and in many cases just gratuitous sadism- if there is a reason for that to be gratuitous. It seems like an attempt to showcase research into random topics. Is the average thriller reader going to appreciate the inclusion of the use of halogens, the anatomy of the autonomous nervous system and the complete description of the assembly of an assault weapon in the same book? The plot was acceptable but I was aggravated to have thought I was reading Ludlum; I had to conclude that his role in this book could not have been more than perhaps the idea for its plot. "
