Pressestimmen

"Don't ever begin a Ludlum novel if you have to go to work the next day."―Chicago Sun-Times

"The fun...[is] finding out how [our heroes] will manage to overcome a new batch of seemingly insurmountable odds. Fast paced, exciting, and boasting prose that's easier on the eyes than much of Ludlum's own appoint."―Booklist

"Packed with all the classic Ludlum elements...the intricately engineered plot thunders forward at breakneck pace. Bottom Line: Perfectly executed."―PEOPLE on The Altman Code

"Welcome to Robert Ludlum's world...fast pacing, tight plotting, international intrigue."―Cleveland Plain Dealer -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Audio CD.

Synopsis

The murder of two fellow microbiologists and a bizarre act of ecological sabotage draws Lt. Colonel Jon Smith and the Covert-One Agency into a strange global quest that will lead from the geyser basins of Yellowstone National Park to the exotic Onsan hot spring resorts of Northern Japan and on to the unearthly wastes of Chile's Atacama Desert. At stake is the Holy Grail of the biological sciences, the Common Universal Ancestor, the origin point of all life on Earth. Supported by Covert-One operative Valentina Metrace and rogue CIA agent Randi Russell, Smith is challenged both by a Washington beltway power group - determined to penetrate and destroy Covert-One as part of an anti-administration political agenda - and an enigmatic South American philanthropist/researcher with a dark agenda of his own. Dr. Silvestre Alvarado is seeking a way to prolong life. His goal is human immortality and if he succeeds, mankind, and even the definition of 'man', may be altered beyond recognition - forever. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Audio CD.

The Ares Decision caught my attention because it was advertised as a novel that Vince Flynn would have written, if he had lived. Having withdrawal symptoms by no longer being able to get Vince's novels, I order it with some reservations. But I needed not to be hesitant, as The Ares Decision held me totally until I read to the very end. Covert-One, the presidents very own, and completely off the grid clandestine group, is put into force after one of America's elite special forces team is completely wiped out. The team goes into northern Uganda and in the fight that takes place has it recorded by special cameras on the American helmets. From that video, the president decides it is time for his Covert-One group take over and Jon Smith is sent in. What he goes through will have you sitting up all night reading! It is a great read...

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing 29. Januar 2012

This review is for the audiobook version.

I am a huge fan of the Covert-One series. I have all the audiobooks and have listened to each of them, other than "The Ares Decision", more than once. That being said, I found The Ares Decision to be the least enjoyable of the series.

Overall, I thought Jeff Woodman did an excellent job of reading. It is easy to imagine that are multiple actors performing. I am on the lookout for more books that he has read. One thing that bothered me was the voice that he used for Sarie van Keure. It sounded a lot like--OK, exactly alike--the voice he used for Valentina Metrace in "The Arctic Event". I found that to be a little distracting.

I was disappointed with the writing. The characters seemed to be different, especially Peter Howell, and less well developed, more one-dimensional than in previous Covert-One novels. I also feel there are gaps in the story that should have been explained. I wondered more than once if I had the unabridged version. (I do.) The Covert-One series has always required a degree of `suspension of disbelief'. For `The Ares Decision' you will have to work at it.

While I have listened to the previous Covert-One novels more than once, "the Ares Decision' may be one and done. Maybe they can get James Cobb to write the next one.
3.0 von 5 Sternen For zombie fans 6. September 2013

This is not a typical R.Ludlum novel but rather something that strays more into the realm of science fiction.
It's about a parasitic infection or disease that turns people into zombies like the ones in 28 days later or Quarantine.
In this tale there are certain individuals who are attempting to use this as a sort of bioweapon and certain individuals
who of course want to stop that.
For those who liked the previously mentioned movies this story would be highly recommended.
At the same time it does have the same elements of espionage and conspiracy that is expected in a Robert Ludlum
novel.
Which makes this zombie story unique.

It is an action packed fast paced story with a lot of intrigue going on behind the scenes.

As always a great story. Great to see Randi part of the team. I like the part where she curtly reminds him she saved there butts . But just outstanding writing as always by Kyle Mills !!! Love everything he does . Well on to the next adventure with Jon and company.

Ludlum's books for me are always enjoyable. The series with Dr. John Smith of USAMRIID have been really good. I have read multiple stories with the Dr. in multiple different situations, and I have enjoyed each of them.
