©1993 Robert Ludlum; (P)1993 Bantam Doubleday Dell Audio Publishing, A Division of Random House, Inc.
"Tremendous suspense." (San Francisco Chronicle Examiner)
"A masterly job...Complex, thought-provoking, and intricately plotted." (The San Diego Union)
"Packed full of excitement." (The Denver Post)
This was a great story, but the abridged version skipped so many details that it was disjointed. I'm sure the unabridged version is even better. Hopefully, Audible will make it available in the future.
This book would probably be better if it were unabridged. I'm a fan of Ludlum and I just couldn't get into this book. Of course even mediocre Ludlum is better than many other international espionage writers. If you haven't already been spoiled by listening/reading other Ludlum then you might really like this. The background music, Greek accents, sound effects, and a few twists and turns could make for an enjoyable listen.
Anthony Heald is a wonderfully competent narrator.
This is my all-time favorite Ludlum. I've read it several times, and even so, I've had a hard time following it because of how jumpy it was in the beginning.
The story was engaging and exciting. I enjoyed everything about the plot and story line. The reader was well understood in all the character voices and voice was clear. I liked the little musical drama here and there, added to the story very well.
