Did J. Edgar Hoover die a natural death? Or was he murdered? When a group of high-minded and high-placed intellectuals known as Inver Brass detect a monstrous threat to the country in Hoover's unethical use of his scandal-ridden private files, they decide to do away with him--quietly, efficiently, with no hint of impropriety. Then bestselling thriller writer Peter Chancellor stumbles onto information that makes his previous books look like harmless fairy tales. Now Chancellor and Inver Brass are on a deadly collision course, spiraling across the globe in an ever-widening arc of violence and terror. All roads lead to a showdown that will rip the nation's capital apart--leaving only one damning document to survive.

Awesome typical Ludlum novel. It was hard to turn off my eBook reader. Only negative about the eBook is the dozens and dozens of errors made by the OCR engine. Some errors completely changed the meaning of the sentence. Once I realized they were OCR (Optical Character Reader) issues, the correct word could be deciphered.
