Publisher's Summary

Secret deals are in the making, massive mysterious transactions steeped in corruption and murder. The players stand at the highest pinnacles of global finance and government. It is an unprecedented consolidation of money, power, and ruthlessness. Their ultimate aim: worldwide economic domination and all it entails...by whatever means necessary. The Matarese dynasty is back in all its glory and evil. And the one man with enough knowledge to stop it, CIA case officer Cameron Pryce, may not have enough time. The Matarese countdown has begun and Pryce's only chance to cut it off is to follow the trail of blood money and stone-cold killers to the heart of this deadly conspiracy.

    "Great Expectations"

    and they weren't met. Maybe it's the abridgement, maybe it was just the book itself. Maybe I have just outgrown his writing style....I don't know. The over-cliched characters, caricatures is more accurate, are distracting. Lines like "What they need is a mother and I'm just the mother to do it!" (paraphrasing of course) almost made me replay some Orson Scott Card. It's in my library now so at some point I'll listen to it agin and maybe my opinion will change...
