Fist class, a gripping tale and a must read...
on 28 November 2001
This was my second Ludlum novel and I will certainly be reading more. It has everything required of a first rate novel encompassing both World Wars.
It has no real hero which I liked considering its American stance but one BAD villain. The plot centres around Matthew Canfield, a US government intelligence officer and his involvement with the Scarlattis, a powerful industrial family from the US. As the plot unfolds he, and the reader, become ever more entwined in the adventure, unable to rest until the fitting finale.
I certainly found myself wondering how close to the truth this story might have been. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!
