Publisher's Summary

For the past three decades, Robert Ludlum's best-selling novels have been enjoyed by hundreds of millions 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 nanotechnology research facility leaves thousands dead, protesters 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.

Good Ludlum

I enjoyed this novel. The story is well told and has multiple plots that converge as it unfolds. There are multiple layers of friends and foes and some of those have even been "deceived" by their superior. Well put together.

Scott Brick narrates well as usual. I do have to say, however, that I miss Paul Michael's superior accent/personality narration abilities. (P. Michael narrates most of Ludlum's novels). With Scott Brick, the dutch have a german accent and the french sound russian. Sort of distracting.

Disappointing and beyond belief.

It is not often that I want to fast-forward whilst listening, but I certainbly did with this. The plot is beyond belief. Details of the size of ammunition and far too many descriptions of the results of coming in contact with it are boring. A very disappointing publication.
