Just started this...seems like it'll be a good standard Ludlum. Ok, the blurb on the back reads:

"In Zurich, Switzerland, American investment banker Ben Hartman has arrived on holiday when he chances upon old friend Jimmy Cavanaugh - a madman who's armed and programmed to assassinate. In a matter of minutes, six innovent bystanders - and Cavanaugh - are dead. But when his body vanishes, and his weapon mysteriously appears in Hartman's luggage, Hartman is plunged into an unfathomable nightmare, and suddenly finds himself on the run. Meanwhile in Washington, D.C., Anna Navarro, field agent for the Department of Justice, has been asked to investigate the sudden - seemingly unrelated - deaths of eleven men throughout the world. The only thing that connects them is a secret file, over half-century old, linked to the CIA, and marked with the same puzzling codename: Sigma.

But as Anna follows the connecting thread, she finds herslef in the shadows of a relentless killer who is one step ahead of her, victim by victim. Together she and Hartman must uncover the diabolical secrets long held behind the codename, Sigma. It will threaten everything they think they know about themselves and confirm their very worst fears...."

....And I'll bet you they fall in love by the end of the book....they always do!

I was going to give this book a 9 or 10 because it really is excellent reading and much more readable than any of Ludlums others that I have read......the only thing is that it does start to tail off a bit towards the end......I think a mixture of predictability and how everything seemed so convenient for the protagonists at the end suggests maybe the writer was running out of time and had to get the book out.
