    Enjoyable

    Not my favorite Ludlum work but good nonetheless. I enjoyed how Mikhail had a softer side for Jenna which isn't as prevalent in most Ludlum characters. It was fast paced and intruguing throughout. The plot centered around one man gaining too much political power makes one think about current political situations and what could happen if there was a real life Anton Matthias.

    Great Book

    I absolute was sucked into the story for about 2/3rds of it, and then once the story moved from Europe to America, it got really really slow....it was so action packed and mesmerizing for a good part of it...it had a good ending, its just not up to par with the first part of the book. I hate to say that i was really glad when it was all over. But still-you should read it, only once though, I wont ever read it again.

    *best book!*

    This was an absolutely fabulous book - I was on a trip to Spain, and I was reading it during EVERY free moment... the bus, the plane, the hotel room. I would recommend it to everyone (and have) because it's a real page-turner. When I saw the ad for The Bourne Identity, I was so thrilled because it's also by Ludlum... so go pick up a copy of The Parsifal Mosaic! (and you will fall in love w/Michael Havelock, if only there were more books about him!
