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.

Left a bad taste.

Ludlum is one of the writers whose books I buy without worry. After attempting to read "Robert Ludlum's The Lazarus Vendetta," I won't do that again. Even though I was aware that Ludlum had several books 'in the can' when he died, I had expected that they would, at a minimum, be more or less true to Ludlum's qualitative standards. I was wrong.

I am reminded of a quote by Daniel Webster (quite possibly apocryphal). While attending a formal dinner his female dinner partner is reputed to have turned to him and said, "Sir, you smell." Webster replied. "Madam you are wrong; I stink, you smell."

Either one works for The Lazarus Vendetta.
