Review quote

Praise for Robert Ludlum and The Gemini Contenders

"[Robert Ludlum's] most ambitious novel . . . Its twist and turns carry the reader on a fast bobsled run. . . . A marvelously unflagging imagination."--The New York Times "A winner . . . one of those books you intend to put down after just one more chapter . . . suddenly it's two in the morning and you've read the whole thing."--United Press International "A skyrocket of a book . . . The action never stops for a second."--The Plain Dealer

"Packed full of excitement."--The Denver Post
