Contrary to the billing on the cover of the book, these books are merely a series created by Robert Ludlum, but written by different authors. Books 1-4 were written by Gayle Lynds and this installment has been written by Patrick Larkin.

I found this to be the best in the series so far, the writer change has led to a definite improvement in quality. Whilst it falls into the realm of bio-terrorism techno-thriller using emerging/fictional nanotechnology it uses this fictional technology in a manner which isn't too unbelievable or grating.

The story itself is fast paced like a good action movie and extremely enjoyable, hard to put down. I'm looking forward to the next Patrick Larkin installment in 'The Moscow Vector' hopefully it is of this standard also. ( )

An excellent story that maintains your interest page after page. The plot is a bit far-fetched but then it wouldn't be intriguing if it didn't explore some new technological fantasies. Love the writing style of Patrick Larkin. I'd recommend the book although it could do without some of the language. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312990723, Mass Market Paperback)

For the past three decades Robert Ludlum's bestselling novels have been enjoyed by hundreds of millions of readers worldwide and have set the standard against which all other thrillers are measured. His Covert-One series has been among his most beloved creations and now comes the latest thrilling novel in the series.

The Lazarus Movement, the dominant force in the eco-conscious, "anti-technology" protest movement, has sent rumblings down the halls of the world's intelligence agencies. Led by a mysterious, never-seen figure known only as Lazarus, this increasingly prominent group is believed by some to be preparing a bold strike.

When an attack on a nano-technology research facility leaves thousands dead--- protestors and scientists alike---from what appears to be a cloud of inadvertently released but gruesomely deadly nanobots, pandemonium reigns. Lt. Col. Jon Smith is activated by Covert-One to find and uncover the truth about Lazarus where all others have failed. As Smith slowly uncovers the deadly underpinnings of the group, he soon learns that the Lazarus Movement is only the very tip of the iceberg in a deadly scheme that threatens billions of lives and will forever change the nature of the world itself.
