The Matlock Paper by Robert Ludlum

The name on the computer screen is James Barbour Matlock, college professor and Vietnam veteran. He’s Washington’s choice to stop a far-reaching conspiracy in an undercover assignment destined to put his neck against the razor’s edge of danger. But the faceless men behind the scenes don’t care if it means savaging the woman he loves or trapping him in a maze of unrelenting terror. They just care about one thing: Matlock is the perfect man for the job—and the reason why is disturbing, explosive, and extremely deadly.

This time the action takes place in USA. Refreshing protagonist is a college professor. And how anybody can get caught up in secret government affairs. A must read if you enjoyed "Osterman Weekend "

This is a typical Ludlum mystery. Exciting at times and confusing, too. Some events were so convoluted that I had to re-read the paragraphs. I don't like that !

Never have I read a Robert Ludlum novel before, and I never knew what I was missing. It holds you in its grip until the very end, with the most action packed entry that never dies until the very end. It was because of this book that has me reading Robert Ludlum every single day. I have to say it might be the best book I have ever read in my life. Anyone reading this book will be absolutely blown away by what I think to be Robert Ludlum's and the espionage genre's masterpiece. Trust me on this one, you have to read Robert Ludlum and read the Matlock Paper.
