Publisher's Summary

The name on the computer screen is James Barbous Matlock. Vietnam veteran. College professor. He's Washington's choice to stop a far-reaching conspiracy, an undercover assignment destined to put Matlock's neck against the razor's edge of danger. And the faceless men in Washington don't care if it means savaging the women Matlock loves, or trapping Matlock in a maze of unrelenting terror. They care about just one thing: that Matlock is the perfect man for the job... for a reason that is disturbing, violent, and extremely deadly.

    Story
    "Not up to par, Mr. Ludlum"
    What would have made The Matlock Paper better?

    The story takes place in the 1980's but the book was released July 10, 2012. I'm not sure when it was written but it did not measure up to prior Ludlum standards. The story was so contrived that I had difficulty suspending my disbelief with many of the scenarios, especially the premise that organized crime has co-opted control of many prestigious northeast universities, and that these universities now augment their foundations with money from drug, gambling, and prostitution activities, all with the help of their students.

    Stephen Hoye did not add much to the mix. I don't think I will purchase another audio book narrated by him. Although I have enjoyed many Ludlum books in the past, I am reluctant to try another in light of this experience.
