Description
War hero and infamous ladies' man General MacKenzie Hawkins is a living legend. His life story has even been sold to Hollywood. But now he stands accused of defacing a historic monument in China's Forbidden City. Under house arrest in Peking with a case against him pending in Washington, this looks like the end of Mac's illustrious career. But he has a plan of his own: kidnap the Pope. What's the ransom? Just one American dollar-- for every Catholic in the world . Add to the mix a slew of shady "investors," Mac's four persuasive, well-endowed ex-wives, and a young lawyer and fellow soldier who wants nothing more than to return to private life, and readers have in their hands one relentlessly irreverent page-turner. Praise for Robert Ludlum "Don't ever begin a [Robert] Ludlum novel if you have to go to work the next day." -- Chicago Sun-Times "Ludlum stuffs more surprises into his novels than any other six-pack of thriller writers combined." -- The New York Times From the Paperback edition.
