Overview

Fearless and incorruptible, Andrew Trevayne is a self-made millionaire, former undersecretary of state, and current head of one of the nation’s most prestigious foundations. Now, at the express wish of the president, Trevayne undertakes an investigation into the “secret government”—and is soon swept up in a tidal wave of intrigue and danger. Beyond the corridors of official power he discovers a nightmare maze where billionaires mingle with Mafia dons, where sinister forces are poised to enact a chilling conspiracy, where Congress and even the presidency itself can be bought and sold, where survival hinges on a hair trigger. In this world, a man like Trevayne can easily become a pawn, an enemy—or a king.

This book is boring. Stopped reading when I couldn't stay awake, no matter what time of the day.

I love Ludlum (the author not the replacements). This is one of his earlier books written under a different name so I never read it. It's great, fast moving, complex, lots of surprises.

The story is reminiscent to the 'Icarus Agenda'. But one has to say that Robert Ludlum was firstly published under another name. Besides, this is no match for the Bourne series for example. Not much breath taking or swift action but still I read it to the end and was pleased. A book to consider for Ludlum's fans.
