Praise for Robert Ludlum and Trevayne
“A taut novel that spares no one.”—The New York Times
“Brilliant . . . a story of power, intrigue, ambition, greed, corruption, and horror.”—King Features Syndicate
“Don’t ever begin a Ludlum novel if you have work the next day.”—Chicago Tribune
“A fascinating, meaty spine tingler.”—Library Journal
From the Publisher
Brilliant, fearless, incorruptible, Andrew Trevayne was a self-made millionaire at thirty-five, former Undersecretary of State, current head of one of the nation's most prestigious foundations. Now, at the express wish of the president, Trevayne undertakes an investigation into the "secret government"--and is swept up in a tidal wave of intrigue and danger beyond the corridors of official power...into a nightmare maze where Mafia leaders and billionaires mingle...where Congress and even the presidency itself can be bought and sold. Here, in this sizzling world of mystery, seduction, and betrayal...where his family's survival and his own hinge on a hair trigger...where sinister forces are poised to exact a chilling conspiracy...here, a man like Trevayne can become a dreaded enemy, a duped pawn--or a king.See all Product Description

You pick a guy for a controversial sub-committee, add a bunch of corrupt politicians and businessment (are there any other kind?) and all hell breaks loose.

I should have followed by instincts and dropped it.
