Overview

The Scorpio Illusion by Robert Ludlum

Amaya Bajaratt is beautiful, elusive, deadly -- and she has set in motion a chilling conspiracy that a desperate government cannot stop. An accomplished assassin and mistress of disguise and deception, she has set in motion the boldest act of terrorism yet conceived.

Tyrell Hawthorne was a naval intelligence officer--one of the best--until the rainswept night in Amsterdam when his wife was murdered, an innocent victim of the games spies play. Since then he's been sailing charters in the islands. Now he's called out of retirement for one last assignment. For Hawthorne is the only man alive who can track down the world's most dangerous terrorist.

Now, with his life and the life of the President hanging in the balance, Hawthorne must follow Amanya's serpentine trail, a path of seduction, betrayal, an instant death.

Racing from a millionaire recluse's fortress to the social whirl of Palm Beach and from the Oval Office to treacherous Caribbean waters, Hawthorne will uncover a sinister network of well-placed men and women who exist to help this consummate killer--and the shattering truth behind the Scorpio Illusion.

Enough excitement that you don't want to stop!

This was my first audiobook and my first Ludlum book years ago. I have been hooked on both ever since. The action is great and the story line non stop. The reader takes the book to the next level.

If you like Tom Clancy, John Sandford, Nelson DeMille or Michael Crichton, you'll probably be disappointed by The Scorpio Illusion. The story line is fine - international terrorism, exotic locations and weapons, and conspiracy. The problem comes in the dialogue and character development. Ludlum gave his characters lines so unrealistic, childish and absurd that his book seemed silly. The bad guys were SO bad and the good guys SO good that it read more like a cheap comic book than a novel for adults. By contrast the authors listed above do their homework, researching background material and creating scenarios, characters and dialogue that are realistic.

What a great read! So many twists and turns with a large cast of characters that demands your full attention. Well done Mr. Ludlum.
