Friends, this is my review of the Prometheus Deception by Robert Ludlum. This is a book that I have had on my shelf, waiting to be read for some time. In the past I have enjoyed reading Robert's books, and was looking forward to this one. It did not disappoint. I don't think I have ever read a book before, where no-one is who they say they are when they are first introduced. Double crosses, triple crosses, and maybe even a quadruple cross were the norm. Added to this was a fast moving global thriller, that was one minute in Europe, the next in America.
The story line was so fast moving that one did not have time to work out the practicalities, of how things happened. That did not matter it was good fun, right to the last page. So this all being said, what was the book about.
Our hero is Nick Bryson, who works for the Directorate, a US ultra secret agency, spying on the spies. He is taken out of retirement to investigate a global conspiracy, that seems to cover all the major countries of the world, linking terrorism, intelligence and crime.
The more Nick delves into the issue, the fewer people he finds he can trust. To say any more would spoil the plot. I don't know which came first, but there are themes in the book that have been used for James Bond moves, also the 24 series and the Alias TV series.
So this was book 20 week 15 fiction 17 (3 on audio) non fiction 2
