The Fourth Reich is waiting to be born. The only man who can stop it is about to sign its birth certificate. In 1945 the children of the Third Reich were secretly hidden all over the world - to be concealed until the 1970s, when they would come of age. Then the most elaborate plans and $780 million in a Swiss bank would be waiting. There would even be an unsuspecting outsider to set the plan into action. That outsider is Noel Holcroft, the American son of a high-ranking Nazi. He's just been shown an amazing document, the Holcroft Covenant. If he signs, it will be his own death warrant and a devastating threat to the security of the world.

"Pleases and seduces.... Mr. Ludlum stuffs more surprises into his novels than any other six-pack of thriller writers combined.... I sprained my wrist tuming his pages and didn't notice until an hour later." (John Leonard, The New York Times)
I am having so much fun listening to books I read back in the 70's & 80's. This is one book that I remember curling up to read back in the 70's and loving the many many hours it took to read cover to cover. I enjoyed listening to this book recently as much as I did reading it the first time. The reader made the storyline very exciting causing me to stay awake much longer than I should have. This was a riveting listen and I would definitely recommend this book. Another very good listening experience.
The story is implausible but it is possible, yetthat is not the only reason to read. There are a lot of twists and turns in the story and presumed friends turn out to be enemies. It is very intriguing and a 70's international thriller. I enjoyed it very much and I recommend a download if you like mystery, WW2 stories, or international thrillers. The only think I didn't like was some of the dialogue for Holcroft. It was too simple like his answers were "What","Are you Crazy" I think the author could have put more debt in the Holcroft character.
Go for it.
