If you write fiction you should read this book Fifth among Robert Ludlum s twenty three thrillers this book is a gem The story keeps advancing the characters are complex and interesting and every time the reader thinks things are about to slow down there is a new worry added That s suspenseStephen King has written much about the importance of writers reading Can I be blunt on this subject he wrote in On Writing A Memoir of the Craft If you don t have time to read you don t have the time or the tools to write Reading is the creative center of a writer s lifeLudlum did everything well in this thriller There are uiet and romantic moments but the suspense just keeps building The setting Jamaica is a major character in the story and not the Jamaica you might expect The penultimate chapter draws you to the satisfying conclusion at breathtaking speed And the final chapter wraps up everything perfectlyLudlum s other thrillers have a bit too much graphic violence for my tastes this one s is largely limited to a few pages toward the end The rest makes it all worthwhile

First published with copyright 1974 as authored by Jonathan Ryder pseudonym of Robert Ludlum The Bantam Books edition I read updated copyright by Robert Ludlum for the 1996 Introduction that adds a distinctive treasure to the reading experience of this novelWith featured settings between London and multiple locations in Jamaica it is an armchair thriller that highlights corporate greed and sets the stage for an understanding of today s reality on the possibilities that could occur with an infiltration of MI6 to corporate boardrooms and how the politics can change with leadership or lack thereof In some ways similar to a Helen MacInnes thriller where the reader ponders if the author had a magic ball to see into the future as their vivid imagination almost mirrors some of today s headlines

A friend lent me this book and since I read The Bourne Identity by Robert Ludlum and absolutely loved it I was very eager to start The Cry of the Halidon If left on my own I probably would not have picked up this book but I never refuse a book I read anything that I can get my hands on and I always make it a point to finish a book that I startedAlexander McAuliff was chosen by Dunstone plc to head a survey team in the depths of the Jamaican jungle otherwise known as the Cock Pit Alex was offered a fortune to do this and he thought this would be a breakthrough in his career However upon leaving the meeting with Dunstone s Julian Warfield he is approached by British Intelligence where he is informed that all is not as it seems Unknowingly Alex finds himself involved in a conspiracy dealing with Dunstone British Intelligence and a force known as The Halidon in Jamaica As the plot thickens Alex has to fight for his and the team s safety and it becomes a life or death situation but even members of his own team are not what they seem While the three entities battle it out Alex is caught in the middle but all he wants to do is get out of Jamaica a free manWhen I read the book description the first time it sounded like this could be a gripping thriller But although the plot is an intricate one after all this is what Ludlum is famous for it lacks any suspense At times I didn t uite get it and while reading this book I was sometimes uestioning the point of the story but there were also parts that I really enjoyed The way things happened most of the time seemed far fetched and lack credibility I didn t think it was believable at all When the end was approaching it sort of had me hooked for a little while until the ending leaves you not knowing what really happened between the British Intelligence agent and the Halidonite I am annoyed by books that leave me with uestions as to what happened why do some authors do that It s like they skip the part that you have been waiting for and just tell you the result But how did it happen When I finish a book that ends this way the first thing I think is Huh All in all I have mixed feelings about this book I didn t hate it but I didn t really like it either I much preferred The Bourne Identity to this one and if you never read anything by Robert Ludlum before I wouldn t recommend that you start with this one I wouldn t say not to read it either but check out some of his other books before you get to this one
