There are a few clues: a frame of microfilm surgically implanted beneath the skin of his hip; evidence that plastic surgery has altered his face; strange things he says in his delirium, which could be code words.

Very good. Appearance of only slight previous use. Cover and binding show a little wear. All pages are undamaged with potentially only a few, small markings. Help save a tree. Buy all your used books from Thriftbooks. Read. Recycle and Reuse.

Because it is so difficult to obtain a hard back copy of this book we were thrilled to obtain one in such good condition. If anyone knows where we can purchase the sleeve for it we would be even more thrilled.

An absolute thriller! one of a kind. The entire flow of the story is sublime. Any reader should have a private copy as a collection.Nobody writes like Ludlum...period!
