    "One of the best books written by Robert Ludlum is The Ambler Warning. This is definitely a page turner, especially if you like thrillers. This one centers around an isolated island full of former intelligence employees who have too much classified information."

    "I love reading but this book was pretty much a hit and miss. The plot is good but I felt like they tried to hard to make me believe it. The action in this book was just unbelievable, and not in a good way."

    ""This modern day novel about the son of a Holocaust survivor who gets entangled in an international conspiracy by industrialists and financiers to take advantage of wartime technology had me on the edge of my chair awaiting the next "surprise." I'll never use computer fingerprint scanning in place of a password to open my computer after reading this story. If you enjoy Robert Ludlum's other titles, you need to read this Ludlum's final suspenseful novel." - "Get IT" [Verified Purchase]"

    "Toughly the same plot to most other modern terrorist novels. It is well-written for sure but at the same time it is derivative and at times a bit boring. I enjoyed it but there are other better books by Ludlum."

    "Robert Ludlum was extremely prolific, but a few of his works seem to be better well-known than the rest. It does not look as if The Icarus Agenda is one of these works, though. It seems to be fairly representative of the rest of his work, but somewhat unremarkable otherwise. I feel like you'd have to be a larger fan than I to fully be able to rate and rank his work, but it does not seem like this is one of his absolute best books."
