Summary
Nicholas Bryson, an agent for a covert American group called the Directorate, comes out of retirement after learning the Directorate is actually a traitorous group and joins forces with the CIA to put a stop to their actions. Robert Ludlum is the acknowledged master of suspense and intrigue. This is his first hardcover novel in three years, and he is at the pinnacle of his craft. His latest character, Nicholas Bryson is a retired deep cover operative who learns that the organization he worked for was actually using him as a pawn against the country's interests. The CIA recruits Bryson to stop the organization, and he will have to rezone his rusty skills to survive in this wilderness of mirrors where no one can be trusted
