Publisher's Summary

The Fourth Reich is waiting to be born. The only man who can stop it is about to sign its birth certificate. In 1945 the children of the Third Reich were secretly hidden all over the world - to be concealed until the 1970s, when they would come of age. Then the most elaborate plans and $780 million in a Swiss bank would be waiting. There would even be an unsuspecting outsider to set the plan into action. That outsider is Noel Holcroft, the American son of a high-ranking Nazi. He's just been shown an amazing document, the Holcroft Covenant. If he signs, it will be his own death warrant and a devastating threat to the security of the world.

©1984 Robert Ludlum (P)2012 Random House Audio

Critic Reviews

"Pleases and seduces.... Mr. Ludlum stuffs more surprises into his novels than any other six-pack of thriller writers combined.... I sprained my wrist tuming his pages and didn't notice until an hour later." (John Leonard, The New York Times)

What a barn burner!

I read this book back in ‘78 - it was good then and holy cow it’s great now ... be prepared to listen in 2 to 3 sessions - fast paced, action packed

Suspenseful in True Ludlum Vein!

I read the book in the 80s and loved it! Having my favorite author read to me was AWESOMENESS!

I spend time on the road listening to my books. So, I've purchased many more Robert Ludlum books, and can't wait to start the next one.

Great Read

The story is implausible but it is possible, yetthat is not the only reason to read. There are a lot of twists and turns in the story and presumed friends turn out to be enemies. It is very intriguing and a 70's international thriller. I enjoyed it very much and I recommend a download if you like mystery, WW2 stories, or international thrillers. The only think I didn't like was some of the dialogue for Holcroft. It was too simple like his answers were "What","Are you Crazy" I think the author could have put more debt in the Holcroft character.
Go for it.

Not worth 19 hours of your life

Where was the editor? I have the impression the author was being paid by the word. This story could've been told in half the space. Inane conversations that go on for 5 minutes or more happen throughout the book. And the end is very unsatisfactory. I found myself asking - "and I listened for 19 hours for this?" Truly disappointing as the end is a set up for a sequel which I will not be listening to. Not sure he even wrote it.
