    Good Read

    I have always been a fan of Robert Ludlum. His stories are fast paced and the technology he interjects is believable. Good character development.

    Gripping, but not like Borne Identity

    Ludlum is expected to do woinders all the times but not that it always is possible for him. Though this novel reads great, it has less intrigue and suspence than he had successfully created in his earlier works. Anyway, he is master writer, no doubt about it!

    EXCELLENT! A First Class Ride....

    In a nutshell, this book is sharp, fast and moves at lightningspeed all over the globe. This book is good...I mean reeeeally good! The Hades Factor delivers everything you want in an international thriller plus more; clandestine meetings in exotic locations (including a few unusual and truly beautiful respites on US soil), three-dimensional characters that literally bounce off every page, and a skillfully written plot that moves at warp speed. This is definitely NOT one for the faint of heart! Ludlum and Lynds will take you on a literary roller coaster of intrigue and deception that will leave you breathless...and with a renewed sense of the true meaning of forgiveness (yes, he has turned a bit sentimental on us, but it works!) This was truly a great read. It will become a permanent fixture in my library and I look forward to picking it up again someday. Ludlum and Lynds truly deliver...DON'T MISS THIS ONE! Cris

    Enjoyable medical thriller

    In Boston, homeless person Mario Dublin dies just outside a pharmacy. In Atlanta, teenager Billie Jo Pickett dies following a performance in a high school play. Finally, in Fort Irwin, Major Keith Anderson also dies. Each one of the victims die from the same unknown but sudden disease. <P>The US Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) at Fort Detrick heads the investigation into this unknown but deadly virus. Specifically, Dr. Sophia Russell sees a similarity with a mysterious disease that she encountered in Peru. In spite of her precautions, Sophia becomes number four. Sophia¿s fiancé Lt. Col. Jonathan ¿Jon¿ Smith of (USAMRIID) returns from London to barely survive an attack on his life. Jon, a former Army spook, begins searching for the truth behind a virus that has struck in four different regions of the country before it becomes pandemic. <P> Robert Ludlum and Gayle Lynds collaborate on an exciting medical-military thriller that moves at a rapid pace to its climax. The story line is crisp but having the hero and heroine (Sophia¿s CIA sister) both being professional James (and Jane) Bond types hurts the believability factor. Though no Bond or even Powers, still fans of the sub-genre will gain pleasure from the first installment of what could turn out to be an exciting new series. <P>Harriet Klausner
