Publisher's Summary

In Europe for a crucial NATO summit in Warsaw, US President John Henry Harris is ordered by a secret cabal within his own administration to have the president of France and the chancellor of Germany assassinated. Refusal, he knows, will mean his death. Afraid to trust anyone, the president flees for his life. Pursued by the Secret Service, the CIA, and Spanish Intelligence, who believe he is the victim of foul play, Harris joins forces with rogue detective Nicholas Marten and the beautiful but enigmatic French photo-journalist Demi Picard. Together the three uncover one of the most secretive and brutally powerful groups the world has ever known, a brotherhood of blood that will stop at nothing.

For 500 years this despotic order of the supremely rich and powerful has kept a secret manuscript by Machiavelli: The Covenant, a terrifying blueprint for gaining and keeping political power, hidden under heavy guard, and worshiped like some divine doctrine. Bonded by complicity in ritual murder and dedicated to a singular vision of global domination, over the centuries they have prospered far beyond any dreams of power and avarice. Outmanned, outnumbered, and outgunned, three people now stand alone against it: Nicholas Marten, Demi Picard, and John Henry Harris, president of the United States.

    "astounding"

    Highly imaginative. This book is a discovery. I must admit that I totally overlooked Mr. Folsom's bestsellers. His style is in the class of Mr. Ludlum's and Mr. James Patterson's. This is a must "hear" for those seeking mystery-thriller combo. The twists and turns and the ending keeps you agape.

    "The story is too far fetched"

    I think the story is far fetched. Also, the abridged version requires a lot of concentration since a lot of information is given a short time. Summing up, it is entertaining but I would choose the abridged version of a book again.
