But Bryson's skills are rusty, his contacts unreliable, and he doesn't know whom he can trust. Nor does he know why he suddenly finds himself in an assassin's crosshairs. Is this somehow tied to the worldwide increase in terrorism? To the shadowy Prometheus? And Elena, his wife, his love, who abruptly left him years ago - was she who she seemed to be?
A spine-tingling adventure that sweeps us from Washington to the Mideast, Europe, Russia, China, and the deepest reaches of cyberspace, The Prometheus Deception is classic Ludlum - a world of murderous wheels within wheels where nothing and no one are what they appear, and violence and sudden death lurk around every corner.

"Spine-tingling espionage intrigue. Using accents, pacing, and an astute sense of Ludlum's characters, [Paul] Michael elegantly and powerfully draws listeners into this complex adventure." (AudioFile)
"Not my cup of tea"
I couldn't finish this, although the narrator is very good, the story is implausible, improbable and very contrived. It never won me over and I could never take it seriously. In the end I gave up caring what happened to the characters.
"Ok; but not his bets"
I really like Robert Ludlum and think The Bourne Identity is one of the best books ever (come on Audible when do we get that, unabridged please). This is the usual Ludlum good fast pace; high body count - but I'm afraid I found the end a little unbelievable.
just sit back and let the story unfold. non-stop action really loved it.
This was my first go with a Ludlum audiobook. The narration was good, and some of the smaller details make for interesting listening. The plot already feels quite dated and many of the characters felt a bit like stereotypes - spies, upper-class Brits, alluring agents. It's still a page-turner though.
"Not to be recommended"
Incredible and poorly written. Plot shoots off in many directions without overal strategy or shape.
