In this wickedly funny novel, Robert Ludlum combines the explosive pacing of The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremacy with a bitingly witty send-up of everything from government bureaucrats and pandering military men to the mob, the law, and organized religion. War hero and infamous ladies' man, General MacKenzie Hawkins is a living legend. His life story had even been sold to Hollywood. But now he stands accused of defacing a historic monument in China's Forbidden City. Under house arrest in Peking, with a case against him pending in Washington, it looks like the end of Mac's illustrious career. But he has a plan of his own-and it includes kidnapping the Pope. What's the ransom? Just one American dollar-for every Catholic in the world. Add to the mix a slew of shady "investors," Hawkins's four persuasive, well-endowed ex-wives, and a young lawyer and fellow soldier who wants nothing more than to return to private life-and you've got one relentlessly irreverent page-turner.
