The Machiavelli Convenant is a fast-paced conspiracy novel that drew me in from the first chapter. The chapters are short, easy to read, and usually keep you hanging, wanting to start the next chapter. I'd never heard of the Montserrat Monastery before, but the pictures I saw on the Internet of it and Montserrat Mountain in Spain looked spectacular, probably a great vacation destination. The book cover looked quite similar to The DaVinci Codes's cover and the plot is similar, revolving around a wide-ranging evil conspiracy. The story is a little far-fetched, but, hey, it's fiction. If you keep this in mind and try not to analyze the story too much, I think you'll enjoy it. For a New York Times Bestseller, editing could have been a little better (although if it had been a self-published book, I would have considered the editing good). I liked the book enough that I plan on soon reading the prequel, The Exile, as well as any sequels that come out.

Folsom has a fast-paced action thriller, which begs to be turned into a film. The plot, while fictional, is all too possible. While the villainous end game is probably well motivated, their means are what gets to you. After over 500 pages, we are still left high and dry- there HAS to be a sequel - no way Folsom would leave us hanging like he does.

I am now an avid fan of Allan Folsom. The Machiaveli Covenent is none stop action and suspence. It follows on the heal of The Exile and continues the story of 'John Baron'. Grreeeaaat read. Looking forward to reading more of his books. Hoping to continue following the drama that surounds John Baron.

This is the first and only book that I have read from Allan Folsom. I really enjoyed the story and the character development. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an international thriller about world domination and power. Conspiracy theorist people will love this book. Highly recommend.

Nicholas Marten (formerly police officer John Barron) has returned to the United States at the behest of Caroline Parsons. He has done so at the greatest risk, knowing that his life is in danger. There¿s no protection for him as those who would kill him include a veteran LAPPED homicide detective. Nonetheless, he has flown to Washington from safety in Manchester where he has assumed a new identity and works as a landscape designer. Caroline telephoned saying something had been done to her and she was dying. She is the only woman Nicholas has ever loved. Only a short while ago her husband, Mike, a congressman from California, and their young son had been killed in the crash of a private plane. Now, Caroline is gone, too. All she told Nicholas was that following their funerals her personal physician, Dr. Lorraine Stephenson, had injected her with some sort of sedative and ¿I never felt the same again.¿ In order to try to determine whether someone had killed Caroline and perhaps her husband and son, too, Nicholas attempts to contact Dr. Stephenson. She refuses to see him, but when he does catch up with her she has a gun in her hand. But, instead of shooting Nicholas ¿she shoved the barrel of the automatic into her mouth and pulled the trigger.¿ Nicholas is soon mired in an unbelievable conspiracy involving those at the highest levels throughout the world. Following a trip to Europe which accomplished nothing in the way of mending relations with other countries, the President of the United States, John Henry Harris is ordered by his top advisors to have the leaders of France and Germany assassinated. Shocked and demoralized Harris has to choice but to run for his own life, and finds temporary respite in Europe where he eventually meets Nicholas who has crossed the globe in an effort to discover the truth about Caroline¿s death. It is the two of them plus journalist Demi Picard in mortal combat against some the most evil foes imaginable, enemies who want to dominate the world. Once again Folsom has crafted a page turner of international intrigue filled with chock-a-block action and heart stopping adventure. - Gail Cooke

Congressman Parsons and his son dies in a plane crash followed shortly afterward by the death of his wife Caroline from a strange infection. Before she dies, however, she informs her past lover, former Los Angeles police detective Nicholas Marten that they were killed because they uncovered an illegal deadly bio-weapons program headed by a South African scientist-terrorist. When he realizes the Feds are not following up, Nick, stunned by Caroline¿s death and the lack of government activity, begins his investigation into her allegations.----------------- Meanwhile, American President John Henry Harris learns that someone inside the White House directed the assassinations of the German chancellor and the French President with plans to place in charge friendlier allies in order to launch a bio attack on the Middle East. He objects, but is told to obey orders or die to make it clear to Harris who is in charge they strip him of his secret service protection. Harris flees, but soon meets up with Nick, as both are now targets of the White House.-------------- This is a non-stop action thriller that never slows down for a moment as the unlikely allies (along with a third person, the required beautiful woman who happens to be a French reporter) are the mice escaping one harrowing attack by professionals after another. Though implausible as the odds of surviving one attempt is much greater than Douglas-Tyson (I know who won) yet multiples seem impossible. Still no one will care as the preemptive strike crowd take control of the White House and set in motion their plan to use biological weapons of mass destruction. For adrenalin rush junkies and the Cheney let them eat red meat supporters only.------------ Harriet Klausner
