Description
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "Don't ever begin a Ludlum novel if you have to go to work the next day."—Chicago Sun-Times Tyrell Hawthorne was a naval intelligence officer—one of the best—until the rain-swept night in Amsterdam when his wife was murdered, an innocent victim of the games spies play. Now he's called out of retirement for one last assignment. For Hawthorne is the only man alive who can track down the world's most dangerous terrorist. Amaya Bajaratt is beautiful, elusive, and deadly—and she has set in motion a chilling conspiracy that a desperate government cannot stop. With his life and the life of the president hanging in the balance, Hawthorne must follow Bajaratt's serpentine trail, a path of seduction, betrayal, and the looming threat of death. Racing from a millionaire recluse's fortress to the social whirl of Palm Beach, from the Oval Office to treacherous Caribbean waters, Hawthorne will uncover a sinister network of well-placed men and women who exist to help this consummate killer—and the shattering truth behind the Scorpio Illusion. "Breakneck . . . readability."—The New York Times Book Review "A high-voltage tale of drama and suspense."—The Denver Post BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Identity.
