The story was too slow in my opinion. It was revolving around the same content again and again. At times, it was difficult to go on reading. Felt really boring half way through. Finsihed it for the sake of finishing it. The story revolves around a vault and it goes from one generation to another. Also, not sure who the Protagonist is. The story starts somewhere and ends somewhere. Thankfully I got it from the library. Unlike Bourne series.

Not one of Ludlum's best works. Had some fine plot moments especially in the beginning but the ending is drawn out and predictable. Also agree with previous review that this had little to do with WWII or the Nazis.

really hard to put down the suspense keeps you wondering where the plot is going to take you next. Every bit as good as the Rhineman Exchange.

This was a pretty good book, but on the back it mentions a 'Nazi threat'. The book never really has anything to do with the Nazis or much at all to do with WWII. I think they tried to spice the plot up a little and they fudged a little bit. I think this is one of Ludlums lesser known titles. I just happened to stumble upon it myself.
