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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This was the book that got me hooked on reading. any of david morrell's books are better than movies and most other authors. this one i especially like because he goes into the childhood of the characters. this one was thrilling, suspenseful and action-packed.
