Fearless and incorruptible, Andrew Trevayne is a self-made millionaire, former undersecretary of state, and current head of one of the nation's most prestigious foundations. Now, at the express wish of the president, Trevayne undertakes an investigation into the "secret government" - and is soon swept up in a tidal wave of intrigue and danger. Beyond the corridors of official power, he discovers a nightmare maze where billionaires mingle with Mafia dons, where sinister forces are poised to enact a chilling conspiracy, where Congress and even the presidency itself can be bought and sold, where survival hinges on a hair trigger. In this world, a man like Trevayne can easily become a pawn, an enemy - or a king.
Praise for Robert Ludlum and Trevayne:
“A taut novel that spares no one.” (The New York Times)
“Brilliant...a story of power, intrigue, ambition, greed, corruption, and horror.” (King Features Syndicate)
“Don’t ever begin a Ludlum novel if you have work the next day.” (Chicago Tribune)
“A fascinating, meaty spine tingler.” (Library Journal)
Ce que les auditeurs disent de Trevayne
- Lasse Hurri
Not as expected
I Would have liked a little faster pace than this. Still it kept me interested enough to finish it.
A master at work
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Ludlum wrote the book under the name Jonathan Ryder around the time of Watergate. His disdain for corrupt politicians and corporations comes through with incredible intensity.
Which scene was your favorite?
The conversation with Bonner when he discovers what's really going on...
Any additional comments?
His writing style is amazing, the words just flow through the story. The narrator who performed the book does an incredible job!
