Overview

Robert Ludlum’s wayward hero, the outrageous General MacKenzie Hawkins, returns with a diabolical scheme to right a very old wrong—and wreak vengeance on the [redacted] who drummed him out of the military. Discovering a long-buried 1878 treaty with an obscure Indian tribe, the Hawk, a.k.a. Chief Thunder Head, hatches a brilliant plot that will ultimately bring him and his reluctant legal eagle, Sam Devereaux, before the Supreme Court. Their goal is to reclaim a choice piece of American real estate: the state of Nebraska, which just so happens to be the headquarters of the U.S. Strategic Air Command. Their outraged opposition will be no less than the CIA, the Pentagon, and the White House. And only one thing is certain: Ludlum will keep us in nonstop suspense—and side-splitting laughter—through the very last page.

    What an absolute waste of my hard earned money by purchasing this book on my NOOK. I didn't get past the first several pages before abandoning this ridiculous excuse for a fictional novel. Can I get my money back?

    Simply Outstanding

    I am a big fan of Mr. Ludlam's writing have been for years. I recently decided to re-read 'Road to Omaha' again and I was not disappointed one bit! I can't exactly recall how many times I put down this book laughing hysterically, as Mr. Ludlam's character development was simply outstanding. Perhaps 'Road to Omaha' is a little off center from other works by the Master of the espionage' genre', but make no mistake, this is one pager turning, wonderfully crafted novel!

    Wacky and zany: Ludlum does it again.

    After his first 'Road' novel, Ludlum proves once again that he still has plenty of humor on tap. It seems Ludlum uses these vehicles as a release of his artistic expression in a way that strays only slightly from his usual form. The makings of a true espionage thriller are still there with 'Omaha' only the elements of 'wacky and zany' are thrown in to add a sincere element of whimsy from the author. This suspenseful novel keeps with the standard set by other Ludlum thrillers and I definately recommend it for the reader who enjoys high-adventure 'with a twist.'
