…In the dusty Arab city of Masqat, a band of fanatical terrorists has seized the American embassy and promised a bloody massacre if its impossible demands are not met. …At the State Department in Washington, a forty-year-old congressman who knows his way around the Arab world makes a secret offer of help that may be the last remaining hope as the terrorist deadline nears. …B …In the dusty Arab city of Masqat, a band of fanatical terrorists has seized the American embassy and promised a bloody massacre if its impossible demands are not met. …At the State Department in Washington, a forty-year-old congressman who knows his way around the Arab world makes a secret offer of help that may be the last remaining hope as the terrorist deadline nears. …By the dim light of the computer screen before him, a man of unfathomable complexity anxiously records Congressman Evan Kendrick’s progress: I start this journal now, for the events that follow I believe will alter the course of a nation. A man has come from seemingly nowhere, like an artless messiah without an inkling of his calling or his destiny. He is marked for things beyond his understanding. So begins the odyssey of Evan Kendrick, a quiet man from a remote district in Colorado, a man with no further political ambitions, who is propelled suddenly into the bloody cauldron of terrorist madness; working alone in a nightmarish world of violence, he emerges a hero, yet one unknown to the world. For his one condition upon undertaking his dangerous mission was anonymity; his only wish, to finish his term and return to private life. But for Congressman Evan Kendrick, Masqat would be only the beginning. One year later: Kendrick’s part in the Masqat affair appears on front pages around the world—leaked by whom no one knows. In the United States Evan Kendrick is thrust into a political limelight he never sought, never wanted, while across the globe a vengeful terrorist group now knows its betrayer. As death follows death—each one closer to home—it becomes chillingly clear that there are secret forces in America with unimaginable power at their disposal, secret governments beyond the government we know, each with its own agenda for Evan Kendrick that is meant to lead him to the presidency or to his death. Hanging in the balance is the fate of the nation. Robert Ludlum’s richest, swiftest, most thrilling novel, The Icarus Agenda is a masterly episode in the eternal struggle between good and evil, freedom and manipulation, played out in a tight, electrifying story that ranges from the Arabian desert to the inner sanctums of Washington power; from terrorist enclaves abroad to terrorist violence at home; from the hotel suites of the very rich to the private islands of the even richer; from profound layers of deception to the bonds of loyalty that cannot be broken; from the horror of cold-blooded murder and insatiable greed to the splendor of newfound love. Packed with shocks, twists and revelations, this is Ludlum’s most powerfully told thriller yet—one that is sure to transfix his millions of readers.
