For fifteen years, Nicholas Bryson was a top deep-cover operative for the Directorate, a clandestine branch of U.S. intelligence. After nearly being killed during a failed Tunisian coup d'atat, he was retired to a quiet new identity as a college professor in Pennsylvania. Now, five years later, the CIA has contacted Bryson to tell him that his former employer was in fact using him against his own country's interests. The CIA wants Bryson's knowledge and expertise to help shut down the Directorate for good.

But Bryson's skills are rusty, his contacts unreliable, and he doesn't know whom he can trust. Nor does he know why he suddenly finds himself in an assassin's crosshairs. Is this somehow tied to the worldwide increase in terrorism? To the shadowy Prometheus? And Elena, his wife, his love, who abruptly left him years ago - was she who she seemed to be?

A spine-tingling adventure that sweeps us from Washington to the Mideast, Europe, Russia, China, and the deepest reaches of cyberspace, The Prometheus Deception is classic Ludlum - a world of murderous wheels within wheels where nothing and no one are what they appear, and violence and sudden death lurk around every corner.

Listener Opinions

    " Having seen the Bourne trilogy multiple times, I pretty much knew what to expect form a Robert Ludlum novel. And what I got was good, solid entertainment: it certainly isn't great literature, it's silly and the endless action and close-calls became quite ridiculous (just how many times was our hero saved by someone shooting the bad guy on the very last second?), but it was great fun to read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ian | 2/9/2014

    " Hmmmm. Not really my thing. A succession of glamorous locations, double crosses, triple crosses and violence aplenty along with a curiously unexiting world takeover. Passes the time though and he ties it all up pretty neatly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lfaulkner10 | 1/31/2014

    " This was the first book I read by Robert Ludlum and I really enjoyed it. "

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

    " Not to bad. Sometimes Ludlum's books are so technical that I don't enjoy them as much as the movie's. I like the visual part of the technical stuff, but I don't like reading about it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tyler | 1/17/2014

    " Very cool spy novel. I'm easily amused. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Morgan | 12/31/2013

    " So far so good! I'll give it a more complete review when Brice and I are done with it. We're fighting over whose book it is (it's really the library's)--whoever is ahead "owns" it. We're neck-n-neck! I think I came from behind to get a whole one page ahead! It's MINE! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ndungu | 12/25/2013

    " Always Ludlum high in my list. GOOD BOOK "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 12/2/2013

    " A good who done it, mystery/spy book. Kept me guessing till the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mercedes | 12/1/2013

    " This book reads like a move, not that it is in screenplay format but that it really pulls you in. It was very well written and suspenseful enough to keep me turning pages well into the wee hours of the morning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lance | 11/8/2013

    " Started out great but finished a little slow. The first 300 pages were great. Last 200 dragged on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Mccarthy | 10/19/2013

    " An exciting, rollercoaster of a read. I was never sure who the real good guys were until virtually the last page....and thinking back I'm not really sure I've worked it out yet. Great work from the pen of Mr. Ludlum yet again "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 8/27/2013

    " This is probably the best book I have EVER read! I stayed up until 5 am on a school night to finish it. I couldn't stop reading it. I will probably read it again, so everything will make more sense. This is one of those books everyone needs to read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe O'c | 2/27/2013

    " Very good; A retired spy tries to determine whether he was fighting for evil or good as part of a secret agency while trying to stop the creation of a new world order driven by the ability to eliminate all privacy through electronic surveillance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 9/30/2012

    " Great book and very suspenseful. A lot of profanity as a warning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan | 7/19/2012

    " Since it's Ludlum....think Bourne Identity. Change the main character's name to Jason and that's what you've got. A Bourne book. So, it was good. Fighting, spying, tech, he's a good guy, no wait, a bad guy, no he's really good, and the lot, but I was hoping for something...eh...else, I guess. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jude | 5/15/2012

    " the book was instresting and is plausable. we are already there if it was to be put in place. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jed | 2/29/2012

    " Good book. Not for the sensitive eyes, has some violent part in it. It left me with feeling of being watched, the whole big brother thing with the goverment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven Slavick | 11/8/2011

    " A great spy story. It took about 25-30 pages to really start, but once it got going, it became difficult to stop reading. Ludlum knows how to create damn good suspense and maintain that element throughout an entire novel. Many have tried to duplicate his talent, but few can manage the feat. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mark Henry | 8/1/2011

    " awful, meandering, unbelievable spy 'thriller' that should have been about 3 different stories. all put together, it was just ridiculous and as close as i was, just couldn't finish it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dainius | 6/27/2011

    " It was my first book of Robert Ludlum and I wasn't disappointed. I was surprised how story turn it out "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beckey | 4/22/2011

    " Spy mystery & suspense... Great read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 lunaticprophet | 1/11/2011

    " **** Although I'm sure that there have been other books that I haven't read that could also cover the same subject matter -- This seems to me to be the book that was the basis for the TV series "Alias". Very fast paced and exciting read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Athul | 1/6/2011

    " This was my first Ludlum book. I've not read any spy thrillers before. This one started off with good and fast narration and kept the thrill till the end. But, I felt the climax was a bit clichéd. May be that was the only way out. Interesting read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ian | 12/31/2010

    " Hmmmm. Not really my thing. A succession of glamorous locations, double crosses, triple crosses and violence aplenty along with a curiously unexiting world takeover. Passes the time though and he ties it all up pretty neatly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zee | 11/7/2010

    " Trying to decide along with Nicholas Bryson who are the good guys and who are the enemies - Ludlum doesn't let the reader off the hook until the very end. Magnificent writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tylerthorson | 7/23/2010

    " Very cool spy novel. I'm easily amused. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chuck | 5/27/2010

    " A group of international industrialists put a worldwide, electronic
    surveillance system in place in order to end privacy and control
    the world. James Bondish with very poor dialogue.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 11/21/2009

    " Fun reading ... super spy saves the world from the diabolical [Big-Brother-esque:] plan of a group of über-rich businessmen who control the world's information gathering technology ... almost ... but why does there always have to be a love story? "
