From the Publisher:
Brilliant, fearless, incorruptible, Andrew Trevayne was a self-made millionaire at thirty-five, former Undersecretary of State, current head of one of the nations most prestigious foundations. Now, at the express wish of the president, Trevayne undertakes an investigation into the "secret government"--and is swept up in a tidal wave of intrigue and danger beyond the corridors of official power...into a nightmare maze where Mafia leaders and billionaires mingle...where Congress and even the presidency itself can be bought and sold. Here, in this sizzling world of mystery, seduction, and betrayal...where his family's survival and his own hinge on a hair trigger...where sinister forces are poised to exact a chilling conspiracy...here, a man like Trevayne can become a dreaded enemy, a duped pawn--or a king.
Robert Ludlum attended private schools in Connecticut before pursuing a career as an actor in New York City as a teenager. He joined the Marines when he was 18, returning to Connecticut two years later to attend Wesleyan University, where he graduated in 1951 with a B.A. in fine arts. His acting career continued throughout the '50s, and included both stage and television roles, as well as lucrative voiceovers for companies such as Tums. In 1969 he became a full-time writer and devoted his energies to producing international thrillers often based around government conspiracies and the innocent victims they tend to swallow up. Ludlum's fans enjoy the quick pace and growing suspense that characterize his most popular novels, such as his Bourne trilogy, "The Scarlatti Inheritance," and "The Materese Circle." Having sold more than 220 million copies worldwide of his thrillers, Ludlum passed away in 2001at the age of 73.
