A book I loved, a real Ludlum.
Filled with history, espionage, lots of story lines, things that are never whatvthey seem.
Exciting, although the middle part was a bit slow and did not seem to lead anywhere in particular.
Liked it! ( )

### Product Description

After three years deep under cover, US agent Harry Latham has penetrated the fortress-like mountain hideaway of the Brotherhood of the Watch, a neo-Nazi organisation born after the fall of the Third Reich. Then, on the eve of his most spectacular success, Harry disappears. Drew Latham, a Consular Operations officer at the American Embassy in Paris, is frantic to discover his older brother's fate. But when he receives the good news that Harry has surfaced, serious doubts arise. Has Harry's cover been blown? And if so, why has the Brotherhood of the Watch let him live? Can Drew trust his brother? The search for the truth about Harry plunges Drew into a labyrinth of deceit and death. And whoever gets out alive holds the fate of the free world in his hands . . .

When one brother is killed, the other assumes his identity and tries to find out whether the information the brother brought out of a neo-Nazi camp is true and what that group is planning. This is not quite the same caliber as other Ludlum books. There is action, but the conversations are stilted and some relationships seem forced and the characters stereotypes. ( )

To any sane person there has always been an unfathomable mystery about the systematic evil the Nazi regime perpetrated. Like a moral black hole, it seems to defy the laws of nature while being part of that nature.
David Ansen
Newsweek, December 20, 1993
First words
The Alpine pass, high in the Austrian Hausruck, was swept by the winter snow and assaulted by the cold north winds, while far below, a valley sprouted crocuses and the jonquils of early spring.
