Overview

Brilliant and incorruptible, Andrew Trevayne was a self-made millionaire at 35, former undersecretary of state, current head of a prestigious foundation. Then, at a call from the president, he initates a probe into the clandestine world of secret government.

Trevayne threads a maze of intrigue and danger beyond the corridors of official power where billionaires and Mafia mingle, where Congress and even the president can be bought and sold.

In this secret world of mystery, seduction and betrayal, a chilling conspiracy brews. Here a man like Trevayne can become a dreaded enemy, a dupe or a king.

"Don't ever begin a Ludlum novel if you have to go to work the next day!" --Chicago Sun-Times

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.
