The Second World War is over. Three top Nazis have embezzled $780 million from Nazi funds - and then committed suicide. Their Covenant, to be inherited by their three eldest children, is to redistribute this vast wealth amongst the survivors of the Holocaust. Reparation must be made. Conventional Noel Holcroft is one of the inheritors and his mission is to find the other two 'children' and prove himself worthy of his task. But the Sonnenkinder, the Children of the Sun, are determined to gain control of the millions and establish a Nazi Fourth Reich. As Holcroft tries to carry out his destiny, he finds himself enmeshed in a bewildering, horrifying nightmare.

Rob Shapiro is an excellent story teller. His character accent's are superb, even with the odd venture into Cockney-Sparrow English. Rob makes this a great listen.
I really like Ludlum it is an awesome writer and this is a great story of a man on a mission and quite literally getting attacked from all sides, with his enemies so close yet so far. Its a story of a person getting messed about on a truly massive scale and I really liked the reader.
This was a disappointing book lacking in suspense or intrigue. The plot line had no direction and it contained characters you didn't create any bond with. As a fan of Ludlum's other works it seemed completely out of place. Was one of the first audiobooks I actually struggled to finish.
