In this wickedly funny novel, Robert Ludlum combines the explosive pacing of The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremacy with a bitingly witty send-up of everything from government bureaucrats and pandering military men to the mob, the law, and organized religion.

War hero and infamous ladies’ man, General MacKenzie Hawkins is a living legend. His life story had even been sold to Hollywood. But now he stands accused of defacing a historic monument in China’s Forbidden City. Under house arrest in Peking, with a case against him pending in Washington, it looks like the end of Mac’s illustrious career.

But he has a plan of his own—and it includes kidnapping the pope. What’s the ransom? Just one American dollar—for every Catholic in the world. Add to the mix a slew of shady “investors,” Hawkins’ four persuasive, well-endowed ex-wives, and a young lawyer and fellow soldier who wants nothing more than to return to private life—and you’ve got one relentlessly irreverent page-turner.

    " Interesting story centering on a wild, out of control hero type. Read the preface and you will understand the story takes on a comic flair in describing the situations "the general" gets involved in as he plots to kidnap the pope. A main character is dragged into the plot despite his obvious reluctance. "

    " My favorite Ludlum. After a while his books start blending together, so I stopped reading them, but Gandolfo is a rather funny departure from his usual formula. Every few years though, I'll pick up something new to see if I want to stick with it. "

    " Quite a surprise to read such a slapstick from Robert Ludlum. "
