Praise for Robert Ludlum and The Holcroft Covenant
 
“Pleases and seduces . . . [Robert] Ludlum stuffs more surprises into his novels than any other six-pack of thriller writers combined. . . . I sprained my wrist turning his pages and didn’t notice until an hour later.”—John Leonard, The New York Times
 
“Don’t ever begin a Ludlum novel if you have to go to work the next day.”Chicago Tribune --This text refers to an alternate Mass Market Paperback edition.

From the Publisher

The Fourth Reich is waiting to be born. The only man who can stop it is about to sign its birth certificate. In 1945 the children of the Third Reich were secretly hidden all over the world-to be concealed until the 1970's, when they would come of age. Then the most elaborate plans and $780 million in a Swiss bank would be waiting. There would even be an unsuspecting outsider to set the plan into action. that outsider is Noel Holcroft, the American son of a high-ranking Nazi. He's just been shown an amazing document, the Holcroft Covenant. If he signs, it will be his own death warrant and a devastating threat to the security of the world.

"Pleases and seduces... Mr. Ludlum stuffs more surprises into his novels than any other six-pack of thriller writers combined... I sprained my wrist turning his pages and didn't notice until an hour later."--John Leonard, The New York Times --This text refers to an alternate Mass Market Paperback edition.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book requires a good attention span! I felt pretty confused for at least the first one hundred pages, and this was my second time reading it! Ludlum does very well helping the reader go through the same things that Noel Holcroft goes through. Ludlum has created and developed a great plot here too. Unfortunately, the ending might not be what you are hoping for, but it is satisfying to the maximum. The pages just keep turning, even when you know you should sleep. Read it.

THE HOLCROFT COVENANT - 4 STARS
I never liked much espionage, spy books at all. I used to think that all of them were boring and too complicated. This changed when I read that book. THE HOLCROFT COVENANT has a very interesting plot that the reader is able to understand without much problems. I'm not saying here that the plot is not intricated. It really is! But Robert Ludlum does it so wonderfully that the reader goes on reading without notice if it's morning or night. He's the best spy book I've ever read, I say this without hesitation. Frederick Forsyth is another good author, but Robert Ludlum is much, so much better. I became addicted to Robert's books when I read that one. Now I love this kind of book to death and would really love to have more and more books by Mr. Ludlum on the following years, God willing. If you don't like much this genre, try this book and start to enjoy it. If you're already a fan of spy books, THE HOLCROFT COVENANT is a must-read, I assure you. Long writing life to Mr. Robert Ludlum! He's just the best on his craft! Try him and you won't be dissapointed.

You read stories every day in the business section about Nazi millions being discovered in a secret Swiss bank account. This takes place all over the world. This outstanding book tells about 700 million dollars being stored away in a Swiss bank account to start the Fourth Reich. This money is released by the signature of the children of Nazis who were taken out of the Nazi area aboard submarines. This is a truly spellbinding book that is hard to put down. Read this book and then watch the business section of your newspaper or the Wall Street Journal. You will know what I mean by realistic. It shows great writing by Robert Ludlum. Buy this book.

The Holcroft Covenant is a powerful book. What would happen if the children of the Third Reich came to power and began the Fourth Reich? That's scary. Adolf Hitler was initially dismissed as a clown and a buffoon. He was insane. Even his nephew, William Patrick Hitler, said he was insane. Hitler, according to a team of historians commissioned to write the definitive history of World War II, said that he was a pawn of the German military industrial complex. Was Hitler a pawn? We may never know. Hitler was a war criminal like his allies Mussolini and Tojo. Both of whom should have been tried at Nuremburg.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I tried Robert Ludlum because I'm on a spy/espionage kick right now. This was the first one that I picked up and I gave it about 75 pages and decided to discontinue reading it. I would agree with a previous reader who said that the story was "mildly interesting." The writing style, however, left me very unimpressed. I've never read Danielle Steele but it seems to me that she and Ludlum are in the same league. Character development is simple and cliche-ish. I did not get drawn into the book.
It's no wonder that John Le Carre is the best of this genre.

The story line had me mildly interested and I have enjoyed other Ludlum titles, so I was motivated to finish. There is no balance. Ludlum spends all of his time bringing the reader to the climax and them tries to tie the whole plot line up in the last 5 pages. It is as if he got worn out, so he just said, "Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera..." Come on Mr. Ludlum give the reader a little more credit.

This book started out really good, I thought it was going to be an exciting story. But most of the way thorough it draged, and I hated the ending. It wasn't much of an ending, it stoped right where another book would start up at. For the most part this was just an average book

This is a book only for the die-hard Ludlum fan. I am not, so I probably should have skipped it. This is, however, slightly better than the "Apocalypse Watch." For the most part the book drags, but their are some VERY good and thrilling parts. I loved the ending
