Era una dacha disponible en todas las estaciones, en primavera y verano un festival de jardines y flores silvestres al borde de un lago de montaa, en otoo e invierno un paraso para los cazadores. En los aos transcurridos desde el colapso del viejo Presidium, fue mantenida intacta por los nuevos gobernantes, el lugar apoltico de descanso del ms venerado cientfico de Rusia, un fsico nuclear llamado Dimitri Yuri Yurievich. Un hombre que haba sido asesinado, conducido en forma brutal a una trampa monstruosa por los asesinos que no mostraban respeto alguno, sino slo furia, por su genio, que l deseaba compartir con todas las naciones. Vinieran de donde vinieren los asesinos, y en realidad nadie lo saba, eran ellos los perversos, por cierto no su vctima, ms all de las implicaciones letales de su erudicin. La vieja de cabello blanco y ralo yaca en la cama; la enorme ventana curva que se alzaba frente a ella revelaba la primera nieve septentrional.

I was fairly generous in my three star review of the Matarese Circle, which was a goofy and cliched piece of writing, but was at least a fun beach read. This sequel, however, should never have seen the light of day.
In the Matarese Countdown, the shadowy and inscrutable Matarese group are back at it again. What exactly are they back at? Pretty hard to tell. Something about buying up a bunch of corporate conglomerates, tanking their businesses, and throwing the world economy into chaos.
To what ends do they wish to do this? The Matarese are one of the groups of bad guys that appear to have no ideology, are incredibly secretive, and yet also have hundreds or thousands? Our hero from the previous book, Brandon Scofield, and his now wife Toni are back, along with a new super spy, Cameron Pryce and a paper thin love interest for him. I dare you to find one salient difference, besides their age, between Scofield and Pryce. For story purposes, they are functionally interchangeable.
Pretty much all pages are taken up by macho shouting, which is the main form of communication. If you like reading sentences like "What do you mean by that?! If you like characters with inner lives, any hint of mature humor, or a plot capable of surprise, then no.
My favorite asinine conversation was held by some anonymous bad guys who are trying to schedule a meeting to discuss their evil plans. Already, you can tell this is some scintillating writing.
Two of the characters wish to meet in a half hour. One of the other characters wishes to meet in an hour. The original two characters carry on a lengthy conversation about how mad they are about the one hour meeting time vs. This is a thriller that is as exciting as a conference call at the office. Ludlum is giving them a real run for their money here, and making a bid to enter the pantheon of the worst of the worst.
Ludlum seemed to know this, however, so the attention in this one is more on the interplay and banter between Brandon Scofield, the old spook, and Cameron Pryce, the young one. However, this friendship lacks the depth and interest of that between Taleniekov and Scofield in the last one. Also, the Cold War backdrop to both characters made their relationship all the more interesting.
The humor is situational and surface-level and unfortunately undercuts the suspense. We also have the romance between Pryce and Montrose that again seems to be lip service--you have to have a new romance because Scofield and Antonia are old hat. This one is a diverting beach read. You read this for the characters, for your love of them, sort of like watching a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie to see Jack Sparrow.
