Format: Paperback
Joel Converse gets mixed up in something far deeper than he expected. Everything he touches goes wrong, every way he turns another door closes. You are left thinking he has no way out, no way to stop the bad guys, no-one to trust. It is a book I was annoyed when other parts of my life got in the way and I had to put it down. Another Ludlum cracker.

Format: Paperback
This is an ancient book (1980's) still going strong. Why some authors keep on being reprinted is not always easily understood, but in Ludlum's case, this is fairly straightforward.

When Joel Converse meets up with his old friend/aquaintance, Avery Fowler (now known as Preston Halliday), his life is turned upside down. He is recruited into the battle against something known as Aquitaine when Pres/Avery dies in his arms.

From that murder on, his life is in great danger as he seeks to discover the identity of the people behind Aquitaine along with trying to destroy their attempt to take over the world. Joel soon finds himself pretty much alone in this fight, being hounded by police in many countries along with the people in the Aquitaine group. Allies are found in unlikely places, but so, too, are enemies.

The plot is fairly straightforward and Ludlumish. Enjoy! I certainly did.

I have just finished reading Aguitaine Progression. Quite a large book (760 pages long) but well worth reading it. The plot is a bit complicated in the beginning, too many names and places, but it has so many twists and unexpected events that it just keeps you going. Basically it is a story of a lawyer who gets himself in the middle of a difficult situation against people who want to rule the world (that's it, putting it in a nutshell, how he tries to find out who the good guys and who the bad guys are and how he manages to get himself out of the difficult situations he keeps getting in. Very good writting.

Oh... good... grief. Could this be any stupider? This book is about Joel Converse, an international lawyer (and former Vietnam Vet who was a PoW) who travels the world managing the legalities of transcontinental mergers when he gets approached by a former classmate who suspects nefarious wrong doing and asks Converse for help.

Converse gets drawn into international espionage, and eventually saves the world. He travels across Europe, killing baddies and generally kicking butt, at the same time as he's trying to uncover the plot.

It's not a bad read, just beyond believable (coordinated coups across the western world anyone?). In addition, I've just read The Parsifal Mosaic (by the same author), and this books extremely similar to that one. The biggest difference is the political hue of the baddies. It also feels formulaic. It's very much build-up build-up explosion, build-up, build-up, explosion.

Most the time with Robert Ludlum it is hit or miss with his books! He has never written a truly bad book, but its either a story that keeps you hooked and can not put the book down, or the book is a struggle to get through! This book falls somewhere in the middle!

Really slow to start with, but the story does pick up over time... it does have a kind of Bourne-ish feel to it, but it does not have the action you would expect from a Bourne book!

I found the book rather enjoyable, and would say that it is easily a top 10 of Ludlums books!

Only down side is the fact its a bit on the long side, with maybe just slightly to much filler material that did not need to be there, but in the end does add up to a really gripping story for you to enjoy!
