    World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries - old underground organization - the Illuminati.

    Mark Grannis says: "Not history, not theology, just great fiction"
    "Definitely better than DaVinci"
    Overall

    I was glad that this book was over, so I could catch a breath. It is absolutely non-stop action and it drags you along. I was afraid that like "DaVinci Code", it was going to let me down in the end, but he surprised me. The premise is a little bit shaky, but it doesn't go way beyond the realm of believability. The strength of the book is the author's solid research. I've been to Rome and I've been to many of the sites where the action takes place. He was dead on!A terrific "read"

    Charged with spotting terrorist threats, the top-secret "Campus" has its hands full when Middle East thugs and Colombian drug lords join forces. New Campus recruits include Jack Ryan Jr., son of master spy John Patrick Ryan, now President.

    "Is Clancy out of ideas?"
    Overall

    This is by far the worst book I've read in the last few years. I used to love Clancy, but apparently he does not trust himself anymore to create an interesting character, so he makes a clumsy recycling of Jack Ryan. The premise is so flawed as to be laughfable. Even mere readers like me know that the number one skill that an undercover agent cultivates is to blend in with the background. So Clancy gives us twins, which by nature will stand out; and the son of the former President of the US. The funny part is that nobody seems to recognize him. It's like if we sent Chelsea Clinton to do an intelligence operation and nobody recognized her. The most grating part is the dialogue between twins. I swore that if I heard the word "bro" one more time, I was going to throw up. The worst part, however is that he cheats the readers by stopping the story half-way with the obvious intention of selling another book. Shame on you, Tom! I might buy his books again someday, but not until he puts this series to a merciful end.
