Format: Paperback
...as Springsteen once sang. With Ludlum's third book, "The Matlock Paper", he would finally develop the narrative style lacking in his previous books, most notably "The Osterman Weekend." Unfortunately, his characters and situations took a back seat.
As title characters go, Matlock is one of the weakest I've ever come across. Not only is he not sympathetic, but rather obtuse and tiresome. He makes so many mistakes that are obviously foolish that you find yourself disengaged from the book, shaking your fist and screaming. Well, that might be an exaggeration, but you know what I mean.
The lack of strong women, the obviousness of the villain, and the weak male lead all lead up to a less than stellar book. The only thing that makes it worthwhile is Ludlum's increasing narrative technique, which seemed to finally be coming to a head.
If you're a die-hard Ludlum fan who has to read everything by the man, then you'll find something here. Everyone else though, consider yourself warned.

This is the first of Ludlums early books to really capture the tone of his later writings. Plenty of mystery, an unlikely hero and suspense like only Ludlum does.

This is a great book for a weekend at the cottage. It's factpaced and easy to read. The Matlock paper doesn't require the same level of focus as many of Ludlums later novels.

The Scarlatti Inheritance and The Matlock Paper and the Rhineman Exchange are the best of Ludlum's first 6 books. All worth reading.

Check out my other reviews for more Ludlum hit's and misses.

I have read all of Robert Ludlums books, they are all great reading. It's a shame we will have no more of his writings.

Who never heard Ludlum's name? He has big name among thriller authors. This fact was intriguing me to read his books too. "The Matlock Paper" was Ludlum's second book I've ever read beside "The Gemini Contender". And I still can't make Ludlum's books as my cup of tea.
I bought this book with great expectation that Ludlum would write "bettter" then Frederick Forsyth (which I've read all of his books) and Tom Clancy. However, I was very disappointed to find that the topic and plot were too simple, especially compared with Ludlum's big name. The story was predictable and not thrilling at all.
I am not sure whether I will give another try for another Ludlum's books. I'm simply too disappointed with this one.
