Publisher's Summary

Inver Brass, a group of high-minded and high-placed intellectuals, sees a monstrous threat to the country in Hoover's unscrupulous use of his scandal-ridden personal files from his half-century in office. They decide to discreetly eliminate him. Then bestselling thriller writer Peter Chancellor stumbles onto a staggering secret that makes his previous books seem like harmless fairy tales...and Chancellor and Inver Brass are on a deadly collision course, spiraling across the country in an ever-widening arc of violence and terror. Chancellor does not know how close his newest novel comes to the shocking truth...or that it will make him live bait in an explosive game...or that it may be the one damning document to survive a showdown that shatters Washington's intelligence community. Plus, hear a preview of Ludlum's riveting thriller The Bourne Ultimatum.

    "Chancellor Manuscript not enjoyed"

    I had read this book years ago and enjoyed it. In this version the reader seems to have numb lips, often swallowing his words and the background music is of bad scratchy irritating quality. Compared to other audiobooks, well I am sorry I bought it.

    "Huge disappointment for Ludlum fans"

    I discovered Ludlum about 30 years ago when I first read The Chancellor Manuscript, and eagerly devoured everything he wrote from that time until his death, and a few after that. I've been searching for an audio version to experience the thrill of it again, but couldn't find an unabridged version, and had to settle for this recording. It is unbelievably inferior to other audible.com offerings, with an almost constant musical soundtrack in the background that nearly drowns out the narrator, who sounds utterly bored. If he had been reading a phone book, it could not have been less exciting. The abridgement is abominable, having been chopped to the point of making it hard to make the huge jumps in the narrative. This is an old recording and the sound quality is dreadful. How about a new, unabridged version, audible?

    "The Chancellor Manuscript"

    This book is of such poor quality I am surprised it is sold. The hiss and sound quality is poor and gives the listener a headache.
    The book may be ok but i could not listen for very long!
    A shame given it is written by Ludlum
