Robert Ludlum's finely crafted thrillers like The Cassandra Compact have sold hundreds of millions of copies worldwide. In The Prometheus Deception, he once again showcases his mastery of international intrigue and suspense. After a critical undercover mission goes horribly wrong, American intelligence operative Nicholas Bryson is forced to retire to a new identity. But when his cover is blown, Bryson learns that his former job was not what it seemed, and he has unwittingly served as a pawn in a complex scheme against his own country. With everything he thought he knew in question, Bryson must shake the rust from his field skills to find some answers-before millions of lives are lost. With each new unexpected twist and every spectacularly inventive surprise, Ludlum shows why he is an undisputed master of global suspense. Paul Michael's mesmerizing narration pulls readers deeper and deeper into the perilous world of contemporary espionage.

Professional reviews

"Paul Michael's tense voice builds the suspense and drama of spine-tingling espionage intrigue. All is not as it appears in the Directorate, Nicholas Bryson's former employer. The CIA approaches him to reinfiltrate and help shut it down, but in a world in which violence and sudden death lurk everywhere, whom does Nicholas trust? Using accents, pacing, and an astute sense of Ludlum's characters, Michael elegantly and powerfully draws listeners into this complex adventure. Who or what is Prometheus, and is it allied with the Soviets? Michael is perfectly cast to read Ludlum's ingenious thriller, which weaves together post-Cold War double crosses, the New Economy, cyberspace high jinks, and Wall Street shenanigans. S.C.A.
