His name defines the international thriller. Now Robert Ludlum has crafted his most suspenseful, most surprising novel since The Bourne Identity – a multileveled, deftly plotted story of a brilliant and seductive woman who lives single-mindedly for revenge; the Scorpios, the powerful, shadowy forces that support her; and the one man who must find her before it is too late His name defines the international thriller. Now Robert Ludlum has crafted his most suspenseful, most surprising novel since The Bourne Identity – a multileveled, deftly plotted story of a brilliant and seductive woman who lives single-mindedly for revenge; the Scorpios, the powerful, shadowy forces that support her; and the one man who must find her before it is too late. Amaya Bajaratt is beautiful, elusive - and deadly. Born in a remote Basque village, she watched, a wide-eyed ten-year-old, as bayonet-wielding soldiers brutally beheaded her parents - and at that moment vowed death to all authority. Now the one man she loved has been killed in a terrorist raid and Bajaratt, an accomplished assassin and mistress of disguise and deception, has set in motion a bold act of vengeance: a masterful plan to strike with one violent blow at the heads of Israel, England, France, and the United States. To find her, a desperate intelligence community turns to Tyrell Hawthorne. Hawthorne was a naval intelligence officer - one of the best - until the rain-swept night in Amsterdam when he learned that his wife had been murdered, a victim of the games spies play. Since then, Hawthorne has carved out a new life, sailing charters in the islands. But hes never forgotten the unanswered questions he left behind in Amsterdam. Now Hawthorne is about to be drawn into the deadliest game of all, as a large transfer of black funds makes its way from Bahrain to an offshore bank...a mysterious woman embarks from Marseilles on a mission of violence and mayhem...and a clandestine network of wealthy, well-placed men and women – the Scorpios – move behind the scenes in the nations capital to do Bajaratts biddingand to consolidate their own power. The key to this chilling conspiracy waits on one of the Caribbeans hundreds of uncharted islands. No one knows these deceptive waters better than Tye Hawthorne. No one - except the brilliant, lethal Bajaratt herself - has mastered the moves of the hunt more cunningly than he. No one else can stop her. Racing from a millionaire recluses island fortress to the social whirl of Palm Beach, from lush Virginia estates to the Oval Office itself, with the lightning-swift pace and tightly woven plotting of such number-one New York Times bestsellers as The Icarus Agenda and The Bourne Ultimatum , The Scorpio Illusion is vintage Robert Ludlum - a high-voltage tale of intrigue that hurtles the reader forward from the first breathtaking page to the stunning, explosive conclusion.
