One of the world's greatest men has been kidnapped.Nobel laureate, international financier, and philanthropist Peter Novak - a billionaire who has committed his life and fortune to fostering democracy around the world through his Liberty Foundation - has been captured by the forces led by the near-mythical terrorist known as The Caliph. Holding Novak in a near impenetrable fortress, The Caliph has refused to negotiate for his release, planning instead to brutally execute Novak in a matter of days.Running out of time and hope, Novak's people turn to a man with a long history of defeating impossible odds: Paul Janson. For decades, Janson was an operative and assassin whose skills and exploits made him a legend in the notorious U.S. covert agency Consular Operatations. No longer able to live with the brutality, bloodshed, and personal loss that marked his career, Janson has retired from the field and nothing could lure him back. Nothing except Peter Novak, a man who once saved Janson's life when everyone else was powerless to help.With the considerable resources of The Liberty Foundation at his disposal, Janson hastily assembles a crack extraction team, setting in motion an ingenious rescue operation. But the operation goes horribly wrong and Janson is marked for death, the target of a "beyond salvage" order issued from the highest level of the government. Now he is running for his life, pursued by Jessica Kincaid, a young agent of astonishing ability who - as a student of Janson's own lethal arsenal of tactics and techniques - can anticipate and counter his every move. To survive, Janson must outrace a conspiracy that has gone beyond the control of its originators. To win, he must counter it with a conspiracy of his own.With mere days, perhaps only hours, remaining, and shadowed by a secret that links Janson's violent life with that of the visionary peacemaker Peter Novak, Janson's only hope is to uncover the nearly unimaginable truth behind these events - a truth that has the power to foment wars, topple governments, and change the very course of history.

I am a huge Ludlum fan. I really like the Covert-One series and I like the early Jason Bourne series, but the latter finally got too far out for me. I had high hopes for the Janson series, especially since supposedly Ludlum actually wrote this first one, unlike some of the others. It started OK, but I am halfway through it and I don't feel like continuing. It is just ludicrous. After being out of the action for a while, Janson jumps into an operation that would be risky for a current operator, with hardly any planning or prep. Then he succeeds at the hard parts but then then messes it up for no good reason. I have no doubt he will bounce back and come out on top in the end, but I don't want to hang around and find out how. Also, the writing and the character development are just so-so. I don't really care what happens to these folks.
Only two stars because it does not measure up to the level of a Ludlum book. The story idea was good but the Jansen character was weak at key points. Furthermore, there were useless flashbacks that did nothing to develop the charater. And at least one glaring error in timeline, where Novak refered to yesterday and the storyline established the 'yesterday' event was at least two days earlier.
As Anderson and another reviewer have already commented, this Ludlum novel did have distracting passages that almost read like essays, and since we don't know where Ludlum left off before he died and someone else took over for him, I would like to suggest another possibility to this departure from his usual treatment. Authors who want to lend authenticity to their stories do far more research than they can actually use in a story. Often, in the first draft, they include everything -- its called overwriting -- until they are ready to revise. And then they edit back unwieldy descriptions in favor of keeping the story and pace moving forward. Ludlum may have died before he could do this, but in leaving his research in, the editor has left us with another Ludlum legacy.
If we were to separate these passages from the main story line, we would have an extraordinary thesis on today's terrorists--he described their warped mindset--what motivates them, their history, their homelands, their grievances, their hopes and dreams. Ludlum provides needed insight into today's enemy, and that's always been his greatest power--his books have not only thrilled us, they have educated us about so many things--government structures we never experience, about people we never meet in our daily lives, and now at the end, he helps us see America the way terrorists see us--from the oppressed to those deluded with power, whether on the side of the enemy or within our own ranks of government and commerce. He has created characters we want to meet again, and for his last work, what a memory to leave with us if that is not the case. Paul Janson and Jessica Kincaid--today's hero and heroine--the kind our world needs in a time when trust is threatened.
Ludlum did not disappoint his fans. This is an amazing book that reveals nothing until the last chapter and even then the suspense does not let up until the last page. If Ludlum has succeeded in training a few authors to complete outlines of novels he created before he died, we can only welcome their continuing contributions in his memory, and more power to their own works, but it would be nice to give these writers the recognition they so richly deserve. On that, I agree whole heartedly with a few other reviewers here.
I was let down by the book after reading so many of the Ludlum books. It was so long and drawn out and didn't really get exciting until the book was almost complete. As an example, in the first part of the book it took 9 pages for Jansen to parachute out of a plane.... Boring! I will say that the last 1/3 of the book was good and packed with plenty of action but not worth the complete drag and endless sub stories and backgrounds of unimportant characters it took to get there.
This was a very captivating story of high order spy stuff, convoluted levels of intrigue, exciting events and an extremely intense braiding of story lines that lead you by the nose through a maze of high level strategy and deceit.
This is one of the best of the Ludlum branded thrillers. An exciting plot that keeps you guessing until the end.

I listened to the 18 disc unabridged audio CDs. The story came alive. One complaint I have with the CDs: if I arrived at a destination and stopped on one of the last tracks, the CD tended to eject with a Bad Disc error the next time I started the car. This made it difficult to find my place after I reloaded the CD.

Like all of Ludlum's novels, this was longer than it needed to be-perhaps I should have gone with the abridged version.

Highly recommended for both thriller fans and Ludlum fans.
Wonderfully conceived plot with unexpected twists until the very end. The writing is intelligent and first rate. Fast paced with extraordinary details down to the minutiae of operational constructs and locations. Another terrific read. Another roller coaster.
As always, Ludlum never disappoints. The tension and peace keeps you at the edge of your seat page after page. Another brilliant work of great writing.
