An enjoyable story with superman likes heroes and heroines who were able to range across generations and the world in pursuit of the villains. Guess who is victorious? But how they do it is what will keep you reading! ( )

Definitely not as good as The Matarese Circle but entertaining nonetheless. It was fun to see what happened to the aging super-spy and his beloved, although they were a bit cliche and dated. The younger pair lacked the intensity of the older. And the plot was not as riveting and lacked the constant sense of danger. I shouldn't complain though because it wasn't as formulaic as the earlier Ludlum. ( )

The Bourne books are still my favorite Ludlums.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0553579835, Mass Market Paperback)

In the audio version of Robert Ludlum's espionage thriller, The Matarese Countdown, the confident voice of actor Stephen Lang (Broadway credits include Hamlet, Death of a Salesman, and A Few Good Men) sets the stage. "He jumped out of the raft and pulled it between the rocks to the sand, securing it to the trunk of a palm ... it was time for the hunt, and hopefully luck would be part of it." And so the chase is on. Lang leads us through a suspenseful tale of inbred corporate corruption and free-market murder.

With his customary polish, Ludlum has devised a mind-bending plot that twists and turns through a complex maze of deadly consequences, pitting his team of heroes against a vicious and all-powerful evil empire. As in the popular prequel, The Matarese Circle, Lang uses his impressive vocal talents to create characters whose accented voices, regional dialects, and identifiable speech patterns heighten the drama. Some might consider the performance over the top, but it is nonetheless skillful and helps carry the action in this far-reaching tale of international intrigue.
