"Welcome to Robert Ludlum's pacing, tight plotting, international intrigue."-Cleveland Plain Dealer On Parrish Island, a restricted island off the coast of Virginia, there is a little known and never visited psychiatric facility. There, far from prying eyes, the government stores former intelligence employees whose psychiatric state make them a danger to their own government, people whose ramblings might endanger ongoing operations or prove dangerously inconvenient. One of these employees, former Consular Operations agent Hal Ambler, is kept heavily medicated and closely watched. But there's one difference between Hal and the other patients-Hal isn't crazy. With the help of a sympathetic nurse, Hal manages to first clear his mind of the drug-induced haze and then pulls off a daring escape. Free, he's out to discover who stashed him there and why-but the world he returns to isn't the one he remembers. Friends and longtime associates don't remember him, there are no official records of Hal Ambler, and when he first sees himself in the mirror, the face that looks back at him is not the one he knows as his own.

Professional reviews

"There are audiobook readers, and there are audiobook performers. In the case of this Ludlum thriller, Scott Sowers rarely goes beyond delivering a competent rendering of the text. Occasionally, he lends some emotion to the words to convince listeners that he is portraying characters. But mostly he just reads, which is unfortunate as Ludlum could have used some help telling his complex story of a spy who escapes from a mental institution and tries to prevent an assassination. The story calls for some varied accents and characterizations. However, Sowers fails to deliver. And the work is poorer for it. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
