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.

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.
Looking for good thrillers
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.
