    " An American intelligence officer is hired to determine the status of the Scarlatti fortunes and Ulster Scarlett. It all leads to international businessmen who are financing German Nazis. i think this was my very first Ludlum novel. He has since become a favorite author that I can count on for involved plots and lots of action. "

    " This is a mildly interesting book about an evil man who is attracted to an evil empire, and the mother who recognizes his evil and sets out to stop him. I give this only a 5 on my scale of 1 to 10. I may read some more of his books to see if they get any better. After all, I saw all 3 of the Jason Bourne movies and thought they were great. "

    " It's not Ludlum's best book, but then again it was only his first. it's neat to be able to see his improvement from this to something like The Bourne Identity. "

    " Found this in a pile of books at my parents house. Read it on trip to Germany and Greece. Was hoping for more - a bit confusing, not the page-turner I wanted. Have several more of Ludlum's to read - this didn't get me ready for them. "

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.
