It begins in Geneva. There American lawyer Joel Converse meets a man he hasn't seen in twenty years, a covert operative who dies violently at his feet, whispering words that hand Converse a staggering legacy of death: "THE GENERALS... THEY'RE BACK... AQUITAINE!" Suddenly Converse is running for his life, alone with the world's most shattering secret. Pursued by anonymous executioners to the dark corners of Europe, he is forced to play a game of survival by blood rules he thought he'd long left behind.

The story feels almost like a history thriller. It has a good pace, the locations are well researched...the only drawback is the mismatched German pronunciation and the ludicrous intonation of German...In this particular story a real problem as the story pivots on German locations, speakers and "mentality"
This little problem could have been fixed with a native speaker as consultant for the otherwise excellent audio book speaker.
Good to very good reading anyway!

Art critic Jeremy Grove is found dead, his face frozen in a mask of terror. His body temperature is grotesquely high; he is discovered in a room barricaded from the inside; the smell of brimstone is everywhere... and the unmistakable imprint of a claw is burned into the wall. As more bodies are discovered - their only connection the bizarre but identical manner of death - the world begins to wonder if the Devil has, in fact, come to collect his due.

I was quite disappointed with the end and the weak and partly illogical assembly of the loose treads. The New York part of the story ended in a dead end and appeared painfully constructed, the European story line ended in a miraculous and figure contradicting fashion..the book has its highlights and its good and flowing reading parts. However, in the context of other excellent books from Preston and Child this scores just an average 3 stars from me.
