Publisher's Summary

Her weapons: Money and Power. Her target: The most dangerous man in the world...her son. Elizabeht Wyckman Scarlatti has a plan - a desperate, last-minute gamble - designed to save the world from her own son, Ulster, an incalculably dangerous man who is working under the name of Heinrich Kroeger. Unless she can stop him, he is about to give Hitler's Third Reich the most powerful triumph on earth.

Typically fun and engrossing!

If you like Ludlum this is a great one. Hoye does a great job narrating. He doesn't get in the way of the story but enhances it. Definitely a fun book.

junk

Can't believe Ludlum wrote this cliche piece of junk. listened to half hoping it'd get better, but kept getting more and more trite.

Return to college

First Ludlum book I read back in college at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. Contemporary lit. 35 years have passed. Enjoyed anew.
