Overview

His name defines the international thriller. Now Robert Ludlum has crafted his most suspenseful, most surprising novel since The Bourne Identity - a multileveled, deftly plotted story of a brilliant and seductive woman who lives single-mindedly for revenge; the Scorpios, the powerful, shadowy forces that support her; and the one man who must find her before it is too late. Amaya Bajaratt is beautiful, elusive - and deadly. Born in a remote Basque village, she watched, a wide-eyed ten-year-old, as bayonet-wielding soldiers brutally beheaded her parents - and at that moment vowed death to all authority. Now the one man she loved has been killed in a terrorist raid and Bajaratt, an accomplished assassin and mistress of disguise and deception, has set in motion a bold act of vengeance: a masterful plan to strike with one violent blow at the heads of Israel, England, France, and the United States. To find her, a desperate intelligence community turns to Tyrell Hawthorne. Hawthorne was a naval intelligence officer - one of the best - until the rain-swept night in Amsterdam when he learned that his wife had been murdered, a victim of the games spies play. Since then, Hawthorne has carved out a new life, sailing charters in the islands. But he's never forgotten the unanswered questions he left behind in Amsterdam. Now Hawthorne is about to be drawn into the deadliest game of all, as a large transfer of black funds makes its way from Bahrain to an offshore bank...a mysterious woman embarks from Marseilles on a mission of violence and mayhem...and a clandestine network of wealthy, well-placed men and women - the Scorpios - move behind the scenes in the nation's capital to do Bajaratt's bidding and to consolidate their own power. The key to this chilling conspiracy waits on one of the Caribbean's hundreds of uncharted islands. No one knows these deceptive waters better than Tye Hawthorne. No one - except the brilliant, lethal Bajaratt herself - has mastered the moves of t

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Ludlum's latest thriller sold 600,000 copies in hardcover. June
Library Journal
Ludlum fans who perhaps were frustrated by the author's last three novels e.g., The Gemini Contenders , Audio Reviews, LJ 4/1/93 have a genuine treat in store with this one. The master of international intrigue is back, make no mistake about it. The producer offers an excellent abridgment, and the story is enhanced with music and read expertly by Robert Lansing. This is a riveting, fast-moving thriller full of violence, sex, thrills, and electronic wizardry--all the things one imagines for today's terrorists and intelligence agents. The story concerns Amayra Bajaratt, a beautiful terrorist, whose goal is nothing less than death for the heads of state of England, France, Israel, and the United States. Enter Tyrrell Hawthorne, ex-naval intelligence operative recruited by British military intelligence to stop ``Little Girl Blood.'' Recommended for all popular adult collections.-- Cliff Glaviano, Bowling Green State Univ. Libs., Ohio

    Awesome Audio Book

    This was my first audiobook and my first Ludlum book years ago. I have been hooked on both ever since. The action is great and the story line non stop. The reader takes the book to the next level.

    A real letdown.

    If you like Tom Clancy, John Sandford, Nelson DeMille or Michael Crichton, you'll probably be disappointed by The Scorpio Illusion. The story line is fine - international terrorism, exotic locations and weapons, and conspiracy. The problem comes in the dialogue and character development. Ludlum gave his characters lines so unrealistic, childish and absurd that his book seemed silly. The bad guys were SO bad and the good guys SO good that it read more like a cheap comic book than a novel for adults. By contrast the authors listed above do their homework, researching background material and creating scenarios, characters and dialogue that are realistic.
