    Look out Jame Bond, there is a new hero in the spy world

    The Book was the Best one ever written By Robert Ludlum. The Matarese Circle and The Matarese Countdown. One of the best spy novels I ever read. I enjoyed this book so much I could not wait to continue reading it the next day and the next until I was done. I felt like I was in this story. You never knew what was going to happen next until you got to the next chapter. I really hope a movie version comes out of this incredible book. whoever did not like this book, needs to read it over to fully understand it.

    It's O.K.

    Ludlum's sequel to The Matarese Circle doesn't live up to its predecessor. The main characters aren't as engaging as the first one. And I agree with another review, the dialogues were awful. The storyline keeps you reading, but also keeps you wanting more. If you read the first one and were wondering if you should read this one, DON'T! Just pretend the story ended with The Matarese Circle.

    I have read all of his and this disappointed me

    I was truly disappointed, the writing and dialog were horrible. The constant use of insults between the main charaters was high schoolish.

    Ludlum Thrills us Again with Riveting Story

    Robert Ludlum has done it again. He has created yet another astonishing masterpiece leaving you with a final question of 'Could this really happen?' The book is a sequel of the Matarese Circle, a group of people powerful enough and willing to, ultimately, take over the world. They do this not through violent wars but through the takeover of international companies. They also leave a trail of blood as killing is of little concern to them. Ludlum's hero in this book is Cameron Pryce, even though I truly enjoyed the antics of Beowulf Agate. The latter is a very amusing character seldom seen in Ludlum books. The Matarese Countdown has the usual Ludlum hero, villain and woman, but they are taken to a new level. You grow strongly attached to the characters, feeling love or hatred, compassion or anger at their actions. I truly recommend this book to any avid Ludlum reader or to someone who is interested in suspence and actioned filled books. Make sure you read the Matarese Circle prior to reading this sequel as you need to understand what the Matarese is. My congratulations go out to Robert Ludlum for a work well done.
