Overview

From the master of high action comes a classic espionage thriller that changed the way spy novels were written, the first to combine the British tradition of authentic espionage tradecraft with the American tradition of non-stop action.

He visited them in the orphanage. He brought them candy and taught them to love him as a father. He trained them to be assassins. Now he is trying desperately to have them killed. Spanning the globe and decades of CIA history, THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE ROSE is a thriller of fierce loyalty and violent betrayal, of murders planned and coolly executed, of revenge bitterly, urgently desired.

“David Morrell is a master of suspense. He wields it like a stiletto—know just where to stick it and how to turn it. If you’re reading Morrell, you’re sitting on the edge of your seat.”
—Michael Connelly

“Imagine a suspense thriller as riveting as The Thirty-Nine Steps or Rogue Male, featuring heroes the equal of Adam Hall’s Quiller, and crackling with more action than The Road Warrior, Dirty Harry, and The Seven Samurai. Sounds too good to be true? Then just read David Morrell’s THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE ROSE.”—Washington Post Book World

“Fast-paced, intelligent, exciting and hard-hitting.”
—Nelson DeMille, New York Times bestselling author of The Panther

“David Morrell is, to me, the finest thriller writer living today.”
—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Columbus Affair

    BEST OF MORRELL

    The book is a must read for any Morrell fan. I believe that this is his best work ever. From the very begining I found that I could not put this book down for anything. I read it cover to cover in 4 days. The plot is very well thought out and keeps you guessing till the very end.

    Brotherhood of the Rose

    This is one of David's best work. I devoured the book instantly. It was the most intriguing book I had ever read. David really pulled me into the story. I bonded with the brothers and fought every step of the way with them. It was a very visual book for me they way David penned it.

    The Best There Is!

    Wow it's so refreshing to read everyone's opinion on this book. I asked my friend to bring a book for me to read, and she brought Brotherhood of the Rose for me. It was fate. I was hooked, and truly this is the best book I have ever read. I am glad to read that others feel the exact same way.

    I was entranced in this story from the very start. It was well written with solid characters and plenty of twist and turns. The attention to detail is exceptional. It moves along at a very fast pace with plenty of action.

    Some language and sex takes place but not detailed.

    I saw the mini series first!

    Usually people read books, and are disappointed with the cinematic adaptations that follow.
    Having seen the mini series first as I did, was akin to training for a sprint, wearing heavy work boots, and then being given a nice light, and comfy pair of track shoes on race day.
    I've re-read this book many times over the years, and it never gets old.

    Good Book. I'm glad I took a chance.

    I had just finished reading First Blood and I took a chance on this book by the author. I'm glad I did. It was very good and hard to put down. I'm looking forward to the rest of the trilogy.

    Didn't Do Much For Me!!

    While I read it completely, I never got too engaged with the characters. I just kept thinking I was re-reading The Company by Robert Littell which was much better...but in all honesty, Morrell's book came first.

    This book is vintage Morrell

    Chris and Saul were orphans and bonded as brothers during their time in a Philadelphia school for boys. Elliott, their surrogate father, befriended them early and would visit them, each time giving them candy and taking them on excursions as a father might do. The two became like brothers and were gradually trained to become expert assassins. Their training included a stay in an Israeli camp, where they learned to be expert in hand to hand combat. They gradually become aware that all is not what it seems, as they become targets themselves by men who use the same Israeli-style attacks that they had learned. They found that the man who was their parent figure now wanted to kill them for reasons they can't understand. The action and deft plot development make this book, and the excellent audio book that followed it as a must for any admirer of the thriller novel. It is another morning book by David Morrell. It should be started in the morning, as you will not get any sleep until you have finished it.

    Brotherhood of the Rose

    While Covenant of the Flame is a good book it is not part of the trilogy that I originally wrote. The Trilogy is as follows: Brotherhood of the Rose, Fraternity of the Flame and the League of Night and Fog. These should all be read together and in this order.

    This book really moves!

    This is one of the best books I have ever read. I found it in my mothers collection of books when I was 13 or 14, and I still have it, and I still read it, it's really that good. If you want a really good read, check it out.
