Brilliant, fearless, incorruptible, Andrew Trevayne was a self-made millionaire at 35, former undersecretary of state, current head of one of the nation's most prestigious foundations. Now, at the express wish of the president, Trevayne undertakes an investigation into the "secret government" - and is swept up in a tidal wave of intrigue and danger beyond the corridors of official power...into a nightmare maze where Mafia leaders and billionaires mingle...where Congress and even the presidency itself can be bought and sold.
Here, in this sizzling world of mystery, seduction, and betrayal...where his family's survival and his own hinge on a hair trigger...where sinister forces are poised to exact a chilling conspiracy...here, a man like Trevayne can become a dreaded enemy, a duped pawn - or a king.

Ludlum wrote the book under the name Jonathan Ryder around the time of Watergate. His disdain for corrupt politicians and corporations comes through with incredible intensity.
The conversation with Bonner when he discovers what's really going on...
His writing style is amazing, the words just flow through the story. The narrator who performed the book does an incredible job!
