I have read Ludlum over the years and this was not Ludlum. He would turn over in his grave if he read what someone signed his name to. The story seemed to be an opportunity to present a sophomoric schlock philosophy. Worse it was done using Tom Swiftie type lines such as "It was a boring book" he said sleepily. "If possible the narration was even worse" he said incredulously.

When was this written?
Allegedly by Robert Ludlum. No way. It's an ok story but DEFINITELY not Ludlum. Mr. Ludlum died in Naples Florida in 2001. Some of the technology referred to by name in this book did not exist in 2001. Like many of the other posthumous "Ludlum" releases, this is at best a fair approximation of Mr. Ludlum's style with none of his verve or style. Todd Belknap is no Beowulf Agate or Vasili Talienikov. The Lustbader written Bourne book is far superior and much more true to Ludlum's style and pace. The Bancroft Strategy is choppy made for TV fiction with none of the Ludlum modality. You may enjoy the story, but Ludlum it is not.
