Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

OUTSTANDING PRAISE FOR ROBER T LUDLUM'S

THE PROMETHEUS DECEPTION

"His most ingenious novel yet...a dead-on picture of contemporary corporate strategy." -The New Yorker

"Readers will remain in the dark right up until the explosive climax...THE PROMETHEUS DECEPTION will not disappoint."-San Francisco Chronicle

"His best thriller yet."--Kirkus Reviews

"This is a rousing thriller with all the trademarks of a Ludlum bestseller...heart-pounding...fast-paced...explosive. Ludlum delivers again another top-notch international thriller sure to please...heart-pounding chase scenes, devastating double-crosses, gut-wrenching twists, fast-paced action, fierce confrontations, pressure that ratchets up to an explosive conclusion, and, as always, authentic international locales, high-tech gadgetry, and sophisticated spycraft."-Library Journal

"A page-turner of nonstop action that should leave his fans begging for more."--New York Post

"Reading a Ludlum novel is like watching a James Bond film...slickly paced...all-consuming."-Entertainment Weekly

"Ludlum's latest is a spy thriller that should keep even the most experienced readers guessing...The pace is fast, the action plentiful...a must-read."-Booklist

"If true mystery-mystery in the plot and mystery as to the true nature of principal characters-is the measure of a great mystery writer, then Ludlum just proved himself one of the best." -Austin American-Statesman

"A 1984 for the new millennium...a fast-paced cloak-and-dagger tale. By the end the reader will be left with the chilling feeling that just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you."-The Commercial Appeal (TN)

"Robert Ludlum continues to jolt his readers with fresh juice...a page-turner of nonstop action that should leave his fans begging for more."-New York Post

OVERWHELMING ACCLAIM FOR THE NOVELS OF ROBERT LUDLUM

"Ludlum is light years beyond his literary competition in piling plot twist upon plot twist, until the mesmerized reader is held captive...[He] dominates the field in strong, tightly plotted, adventure-drenched thrillers. Ludlum pulls out all the stops and dazzles his readers."-Chicago Tribune

"Ludlum stuffs more surprises into his novels than any other six pack of thriller writers combined." -The New York Times

"Welcome to Robert Ludlum's world...fast pacing, tight plotting, international intrigue." -The Plain Dealer

"Robert Ludlum is the master of gripping, fast-moving intrigue. He is unsurpassed at weaving a tapestry of stunningly diverse figures, then assembling them in a sequence so gripping that the reader's attention never wavers." -The Daily Oklahoman

"Don't ever begin a Ludlum novel if you have to go to work the next day."

-Chicago Sun-Times

"If a Pulitzer Prize were awarded for escapist fiction, Robert Ludlum undoubtedly would have won it. Ten times over."-Mobile Register

"An exciting medical-military thriller that moves at a rapid pace to its climax...an exciting new series."-Midwest Book Review

"A pop hit...that should bounce right up the bestseller lists."-Kirkus Reviews

"Gripping...robust writing and a breakneck pace."-Boston Herald

Synopsis:

For thirty years, Robert Ludlum's novels have set the standard for the finest in international intrigue and suspense. With an unbroken string of bestsellers in almost every country in the world, his books have been enjoyed by hundreds of millions of readers and are widely acknowledged as classics in the field. Now, after the bestselling Covert-One novels The Hades Factor and The Cassandra Compact, comes the third thrilling novel in the series.

A fiery explosion in the dark of night shatters one of the laboratory buildings in Paris's esteemed Pasteur Institute. Among the dead is Emile Chambord, one of the leaders in the global race to create a molecular or DNA computer. Unfortunately, Professor Chambord kept the details of his work secret, and his notes were apparently destroyed in either the bomb blast or the raging fire that followed. Under the cover of visiting his friend Marty Zellerbach, who was severely injured when the Pasteur lab was destroyed, Covert-One agent Jon Smith flies to Paris to search for the connection between the Pasteur explosion and the forces now wielding the computer. Following a trail that leads him across two continents, Smith uncovers a web of deception that threatens to wreck havoc and forever reshape the world.
