About Robert Ludlum Robert Ludlum Author Robert Ludlum is one of the world's bestselling authors and there are more than million copies of his books in print.
It is a busy story with Ludlum's character Paul Janson and his sidekick Jessica Kincaid taking on all and sundry with enemies seemingly coming from all directions. Its OK but not as compelling as the master that Garrison is trying to emulate. Mar 11, Bob Callaway rated it liked it. A good Ludlum-like story but a little too far fetched for my taste. The main character - Paul Janson - used to be one of the most skilled and ruthless assassins employed by the US government. At some point he decided to change his ways. He seized an opportunity to quit his job and establish an independent operation, where he could be his own commanding officer and use his skills in accordance with his conscience.
Working with his business partner and skilled sniper Jessica Kincaid he gets involved in operations of his own choice, trying to support just causes and redeem his old sins. The plot of this novel is very well crafted. The characters are very well defined and realistic, but at the same time mysterious, and in many cases the reader is not entirely sure who is on which side. Jessica Kincaid is an especially interesting character, strong, but undoubtedly feminine.

What I liked the most about this novel is that the author deliberately left a couple of threads unfinished, a couple of mysteries unsolved. Can we expect the third book in the series? Dec 26, Ryan Crompton rated it liked it. As far as this book goes -- it's good but not great. First up, can we please stop having oil companies be the villains?
To call that particular trope worn out would be an understatement. Secondly, it's apparent the author did some cursory research on a lot of topics but didn't delve into them enough to make them believable to those in the know. You can't pull down Google Maps on a satellite phone, you don't throw the slide on a Beretta Tomcat or Jetfire to load it they use a tip-up barrel , and you wouldn't use TOR for business communications. These are minor quibbles, but if you're going to present details, please present accurate ones.
While engaging, I didn't find anything worth noodling over at its conclusion. Overall, it's a straightforward action book, quickly read and likely quickly forgotten. For all that, it's not bad. I'd pick up the rest of the books in the series were they available cheaply. Oct 16, Eric Wright rated it really liked it Shelves: thriller-suspense , fiction , own. This Ludlum book, actually written by Paul Garrison, intrigued me through proposing a novel hero.
Paul Janson, himself a covert operative, rehabilitated the wreckage of lives left by the violent intelligence section. He is committed to recovering and healing damaged former agents or opertives. Out of these recovered men he has forged a small but adept group to use in international crises. Janson along with his partner, sharpshooter Jessica Kincaid, maintains a strong ethic: 1. No torture, 2. No This Ludlum book, actually written by Paul Garrison, intrigued me through proposing a novel hero.
No civiliaan casualties, and 3. No killing anyone who doesn't rty to kill them. Janson's goal, to rehabilitate the wrecks left by American power plays, and his rules including no torture are refreshing after so many stories of intelligence agents bending the rules of civil society.
Aside from this, however, the plot involves the usual heroics and in that sense should rate a 3. I gave it a 4 due to the higher moral ground. An entertaining read. Apr 22, Stacey rated it did not like it Shelves: audio. Cardboard characters, ridiculous dialog, beyond believable plot developments apparently the main characters have a superpower ability to be in the right place at the right time , etc.
Also, the continued use of the model make and number for planes, guns, etc. It would be similar to replacing the word "car" with a description every time it comes up in a sentence: "I'm going to drive my Jetta Wagon Turbo Diesel with sunroof and roof racks to the grocer Silly.

I was a little worried about a writer starting a series based on a book written by Ludlum over a decade ago. I haven't been happy with the direction the Bourne series has been taken, so naturally I was skeptical. It's not bad though; it reads like Cussler's stuff, and it is well written.

PaulGarrison did a good job. Feb 19, Tom Tischler rated it it was amazing. Another page turner probably will be a movie. Decent action, plot that moved with pace but total lack of character development and a good story made me glad this was an audiobook to fill the miles.

Just when you think you have all the political intrigue and corporate corruption figured out; just when you think you know the good guys from the bad; just as you're in the final pages thinking you have it all figured out - surprise!

Working with kick-ass sharpshooter Jessica Kincaid, he helps other disenchanted covert operatives to create new lives.
He also accepts independent jobs, but only missions he believes will contribute to the greater good. This was a good read. Paul Garrison has taken the essence of the original book by Ludlum and carried on in the same vein. Much better than Eric Lustbader's continuation of the Bourne books by Ludlum.

Good book, I will be definitely reading more books from this Author. Oct 30, Bob rated it it was amazing Shelves: on-my-shelves , ludlum. The bad guys got off too easy, we'll be seeing them again I think. May 28, Josiah rated it it was ok. Not a real Ludlum! Mar 06, Lucy Krb rated it liked it.
It was suspensful book but I've read much better books under Robert Ludlum's name. This one wasn't the page-turener I've been expecting so I was a bit disappointed. It had an interesting plot but I felt something missing. Most of the turns and twists were obvious. This book is one of these I'll read only once. Apr 05, Gerald rated it liked it Shelves: genre-thriller , genre-fiction , genre-suspense , author-ludlum , As he rehabilitates these individuals, they have become for him a tremendous, world-wide support group to help him when he needs it in the independent assignments he takes on to fund his rehabilitation efforts.
The Janson Command finds them attempting the rescue a physician-employee from a Houston-based oil exploration conglomerate, who has been kidnapped by the cruel dictator of a very small, but very oil-rich island just off the coast of western equatorial Africa. He wants them to capture the escaped dictator and return all the money he has stolen from the country and squirreled away in foreign banks.
In the meantime Janson is touching base in visits to his world-wide contacts in his efforts to track down the dictator and the sinister organization that helped him escape. I heartily recommend it to lovers of such thrillers. Jan 17, Barbara rated it liked it.
This is a fast-paced suspenseful read that I enjoyed. It is Janson's goal to save the world--one operative, one mission, one redemption at a time.

He is working in partnership with champion sharpshooter Jessica Kincaid to rehabilitate disenchanted agents and help them create new lives outside of the violent intelligence sector. These former operatives then form a network of support for Janson when it comes to his other job in which he takes on independent assignments. But he takes only those actions that he believes contribute to the greater good of all. Whether he's rescuing an American doctor from Somalian pirates, attacking militant thugs intent on murdering a West African public servant agitating for human rights, or hunting the money-lenders who capitalize on barbaric civil war, Janson follows three principles: 1 No torture.
With his commitment to doing what is right, Janson finds that his most difficult task is figuring out if he's fighting for the good side.
