The Scarlatti Inheritance: A Novel by Robert Ludlum

Her weapons: money and power. Her target: the most dangerous man in the world—her own son. Elizabeth Wyckham Scarlatti has a plan, a desperate, last-minute gamble designed to save the world from her son, Ulster, an incalculably cruel man who is working for the Third Reich under the name of Heinrich Kroeger. If Elizabeth cannot stop him, Ulster will give Hitler the most powerful instrument on earth.

This is one of Ludlum's earliest books. It's very rivoting and suspenseful.

Oh, please. Do not waste the internet's time with your trashy, poorly-informed book reviews. Next time, if you have something bad to say, then leave it in the high school English classroom. What a sad world this is when the ignorant can speak. -Kalf T.

Think I've read every Ludlum book ever written and this is positively the BEST one. Haven't read it in years and was lucky to find it here. Just have to keep this one in my little library.

A extrordinary tale! Thsi is very possibly Ludlum's best work ever, and that's saying somthing. all the characters are good, however, the 'bad guy' was very well created and really makes you hate him. Ludlum captures the best of and the worstof people in these characters and weaves a outstanding tale while doing so. The plot seems plausible which makes it all the better. And all that is going on is somthing only Ludlum could do. With good characters a very good,well told, and plausible plot, goes along with good writing and Ludlums natural gift. A absolutly must read.

Ludlam's first book shows all the promise of the author who would go on to write The Osterman Weekend. He provides a tight, gripping wartime story with enough twists to keep the reader guessing. Though simpler and more straightforward than some of his later works, there is no fault in this novel.

This is probably the best work by this author since Osterman Weekend.

Robert Ludlum has written many great books. This is not one of them. The Scarlatti Inheritance was the first Ludlum book. You can tell it's his first novel. It lacks an interesting plot. It has the right ingredients for a spy thriller (Nazis, Billionaire Widow, Ruthless Army guy), but the cook messed up. There are 2 boring assassination attempts. The end makes sense until you read the epilogue. The epilogue destroys the book. I would not recommend this book to you unless you are a die-hard Ludlum fan.
