Overview

Noel Holcroft, a young American architect, flies to Geneva where he sees an astonishing document. Drawn up more than 30 years ago by three ostensibly repentant Nazis, it is the key to a $780 million fund sequestered by the trio to aid survivors of the Holocaust. All that is required is Holcraft's signature.

But the document is a lie and the fund's real purpose is to establish a new Nazi Reich. If Holcraft signs the document, he will be validating his own death warrant...but paradoxically, only by signing it can he prevent the plot he has uncovered from reaching its predestined conclusion.

This is the first Robert Ludlum book I read, X-number of years ago. It got me hooked. Ludlum famously said that if a book doesn't grab the reader on the first page, the author has failed. There was only one (and I now don't remember which one it was) that failed to grab me. I plan on going through them all again, in order. When I get to the one that didn't grab me, I'll give it another chance!

I believe this was the first book by Robert Ludlum the I read. The story is about the son of high ranking Nazi officer, Noel Holcroft, who is given a document that after he reads it, his life will never be the same. Noel learns that his father was deeply involved with the Third Reich, and that he stole a lot of money from the holocaust victims. He also finds out the he must find other people in order for them to get access to the cash. Midway through the book Noel finds that there are looking for him also. There are lots of twists and turns and the ending caught me off guard. It wasn't what I expected at all. Still, the book was a great read. Highly recommend.

This book had non-stop action, a great story line and great twists. Very exciting. After reading this book, I wanted to read all of Ludlum's works.
