Description

"Mr. Ludlum's narrative imagination is a force of nature."-- "The New York Times."

Michael Havelock's world died on a moonlit beach on the Costa Brava. He watched as his partner and lover, Jenna Karats, double agent, was efficiently gunned down by his own agency. There was nothing left for him but to quit the game, get out. Until, in one frantic moment on a crowded railroad platform in Rome, Havelock saw his Jenna alive. From then on, he was marked for death by both U.S. and Russian assassins, racing around the globe after his beautiful betrayer, trapped in a massive mosaic of treachery created by a top-level mole with the world in his fist--Parsifal.

"Massive melodrama... Ludlum does know how to put on a show."-- "Chicago Tribune."

"A crackling good yarn."-- "Los Angeles Times Book Review."

"The suspense never lets up."-- "Atlanta Journal-Constitution."

"As fast-paced and as absorbing as any he's written."--Susan Isaacs, "Newsday"
