During a career spanning thirty years, Ludlum has sold 220 million copies in 40 countries in 32 different languages. A whole new generation has now discovered the genius of Robert Ludlum. All Ludlum's recent books have been Sunday Times bestsellers and Guardian fastsellers in paperback.

THE CHANCELLOR MANUSCRIPT is also being made into a movie, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Robert Ludlum has always received first-rate reviews: 'A master at the conspiracy theory type of thriller, his books operate on an ever-spiralling series of surprise revelations' Irish Times. 'Terrific entertainment ... the tension is fierce, the pace killing' Cosmopolitan. 'Ludlum stuffs more surprises into his novels than any other six-pack of writers combined' New York Times.

Reviews

Escaping from a psychiatric facility where wacko intelligence agents are stashed, the perfectly sane Hal Ambler finds that there's no record he ever existed-and that the face he sees in the mirror isn't his. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

For some bestselling authors, death is no impediment to an enduring career. But the latest Ludlum (d. 2001) novel, penned by an unnamed hired hand, reveals the problems inherent in such an arrangement: neither sufficiently like Ludlum's originals nor compellingly distinctive, it inhabits a kind of thriller purgatory to which only the most dedicated Ludlumite will be eager to venture. After a two-decade career as a clandestine operative, Hal Ambler is drugged and warehoused in the Parrish Island Psychiatric Facility, a government nuthouse for spies. A sympathetic nurse aids his escape, and soon Ambler is on the run, trying to figure out who he is and, more importantly, who he was. There are a few interesting characters particularly CIA accountant Clayton Caston, a man who knows little about feelings but who can tease a mountain of information out of a spy's expense account but the villains are mostly invisible and everybody else ends up dead before you really get to know them. Just because a writer can copy what was once a successful style does not automatically assure his publisher a successful book. (Oct. 25) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
