    Good Book

    This was a good book. A little slow getting started - I had a hard time getting in to it at first, but once I did, it was great.

    FOR SOPHISTICATED MYSTERY LOVERS

    For over thirty years Robert Ludlum has entertained readers with a string of international thrillers. Who can forget the spellbinding The Bourne Identity or The Scarletti Inheritance? Now his Covert-One series is enthralling a new generation as well as veteran fans. Dan Leslie gives an excellent reading to the latest suspense propelled yarn. The scene is Shanghai where anything can happen and much does. Why is cargo being loaded onto a dockside ship under cover of night? Perhaps the photographer who is capturing the event knows, but he won't tell as he is murdered and his camera demolished. Segue to a conversation between Covert-One director Fred Klein and the President. Klein reports that there is word out that a Chinese ship may be carrying a large supply of chemicals. Will these chemicals be used to build biological weapons, and by whom? Klein is told to bring the White House proof of this potentially deadly cargo. Dispatched to Taiwan is Covert-One agent Jon Smith. His orders are to get the ship's actual cargo list from another agent. More easily said than done: the second agent is killed, and Smith barely escapes. In true Ludlum form there are more shockers to come, one involves the President's family. Few can come close to this author's crackling dialogue and gasp inducing scenes. Sophisticated mystery lovers, give a listen.

    lynds did not disappoint ludlum

    i rate this new covert-one novel with 4 stars, if Ludlum's still alive , i'll give it a 5. this is one of the most exciting and adventurous covert one novel.the topic is not futuristic,unlike the paris option. this could come right out of the headline news.if Lynds published it before the paris option(prior to U.S war on Iraq), it might enjoy good sales and might jump up to the bestseller lists. i admired Lynds' knowledge on the Chinese ruling party.its as if Lynds wrote the novel with some high officials from the Chinese ruling party beside her(as editors). and by the way, don't get confused with the rifle AK-47 and AK-74.AK-74 really exist.both belongs to dr. Kalashnikov's rifles.and AK-74 is a new version of AK-47 and its more powerful.

    Great Read!

    As is typical of Ludlum books, you have to pay attention. This is another good one with the Jon Smith character.

    Terrible.

    Just plain terrible. Laughable. Stay away from it - spend your time reading the real Ludlum novels. Ms. Lynds makes the usual suspense of a Ludlum novel seem more like comedy, a cartoon.
