In this gripping best seller, Robert Ludlum spins a web of suspense and high-stakes intrigue as 2 men who are sworn mortal enemies must cooperate in order to foil a sinister plot to topple the world's governments. From opposite sides of the Iron Curtain, these 2 hard-bitten professionals are the best at what they do. And they do whatever is necessary. The Matarese Circle - a shadowy grouping of the most ruthless terrorists in history. They have been responsible for countless assassinations and massacres throughout the 20th century, but none as horrifying as their plan to throw the superpowers into chaos before making their boldest move...

The Matarese Circle

Few books that I cannot put down but this is one of them. The scope of the book is grand and the attention to detail in surroundings and characters is nicely done.

A spy novel needs all the parts

When Ludlum actually wrote the books he was my favorite for spy stories, so I bought this remembering how I loved the book. But this book is abridged and if I had not already read the real book I would never have understood anything about the plot, much less enjoyed the book. I will not puchase another abridged Ludlum novel, it's the detail that makes the book interesting, this book was just painful to hear after reading the real book.
