A Ludlum fan

This was a great story, but the abridged version skipped so many details that it was disjointed. I'm sure the unabridged version is even better. Hopefully, Audible will make it available in the future.

Ho hum not good Ludlum

This book would probably be better if it were unabridged. I'm a fan of Ludlum and I just couldn't get into this book. Of course even mediocre Ludlum is better than many other international espionage writers. If you haven't already been spoiled by listening/reading other Ludlum then you might really like this. The background music, Greek accents, sound effects, and a few twists and turns could make for an enjoyable listen.
