    1. Robert Ludlum was the author of twenty seven novels, each one a New York Times bestseller There are than 210 million of his books in print, and they have been translated into thirty two languages He is the author of The Scarlatti Inheritance, The Chancellor Manuscript, and the Jason Bourne series The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, and The Bourne Ultimatum among others Mr Ludlum passed away in March, 2001 Ludlum also published books under the pseudonyms Jonathan Ryder and Michael Shepherd.Some of Ludlum s novels have been made into films and mini series, including The Osterman Weekend, The Holcroft Covenant, The Apocalypse Watch, The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum A non Ludlum book supposedly inspired by his unused notes, Covert One The Hades Factor, has also been made into a mini series The Bourne movies, starring Matt Damon in the title role, have been commercially and critically successful The Bourne Ultimatum won three Academy Awards in 2008 , although the story lines depart significantly from the source material.

    2. Robert Ludlum, while living or now that he is dead, never fails to astonish me. His works are just different from most of the suspense-thriller novels around. Ludlum books are like a certain kind of apparel brand whose owners and tailors seem to have me in mind whenever they design and produce their clothes. The Janson Directive was first published in 2002, a year after Robert Ludlum’s death. The question of whether he or some hired writers wrote this does not really matter. This book has the [...]

    3. i finished this catastrophe of a book too tired. Review to come laterMy thought at the end of this book was simply this:My only defense is this book actually started out really well, i read chapters 1-8 and i was thinking "oh shit this is going to be gooood." Alas this book turned out to be absolutely underwhelming, chock full of middle east stereotypes: starring your favorite recurring themes such as, westerners are evil "e caliph was a leader in the struggle against the corruption of the West, [...]

    4. I randomly purchased this book in amazon and when I started reading it , I just couldn't stop. A well Narrated Spy novel by Robert Ludlum. Fast paced<>twisty<>and heck of a suspense

    5. Just like Robert Ludlum's 'Bourne' series and Lee Child's 'Reacher' books, you WANT to believe there is someone that kickass out there We all know there isn't. So, as long as you take it as seriously as the 'Die Hard' movies they are excellent books. In this story, the worlds greatest philanthropist, billionaire and all round good guy is kidnapped by terrorists. No ransom is demanded they just want to execute him. Novak's people call in the one man killing machine Paul Janson. Janson puts togeth [...]

    6. America secretly tries to influence the course of world history whilst appearing to stay at arms length but it all goes horrible wrong and eventually they have to rely on an ex super spy to save the day when their puppet decides he wants to control the strings himself. So utterly predictable I only kept on reading to see how dreadful it could get. In that respect it didn't disappoint it just kept on getting worse and worse. Also I kept really irritated by glaring errors that a minimum of researc [...]

    7. Good action paced novel- just what you would expect from Ludlum- many plot changes that I didn't see coming so was enjoyable. If I was directing the movie abut the book would cast Bruce Willis as the aging hero and Kate Blanchett as the love interest.

    8. This was my first Robert Ludlum book, although I had heard the name over the years, and read a few reviews of his books. As I had a whole English pound coin burning a hole in my pocket I tried this one. Some familiar ground to start off with, a terrorist preparing to do something horrid and killing one or two sentries and border guards in preparation. The horrid thing was the abduction of a man who, along with being rich beyond our wildest dreams uses his money and influence for the good of his [...]

    9. I have no words to express my disappointment or explain how truly horrible this book is. Having said that, the phrase, "what a load of rubbish" sums it up rather nicely. It starts off with so much promise, but quickly dissolves into the type of anti-American rhetoric frequently promulgated by those on the left side of the political spectrum at home and abroad. Don't get me wrong -- of course America is not perfect and of course it can and should be criticized. Just not this way. It is an insult [...]

    10. Oh my! It has seemed to take me 'forever' to read this novel. I always thought of Robert Ludlum as a writer of suspense and thrillers. In the midst of reading this book, I did something I have never done before. I came back to the web site to read the reviews of others. As I learned that this novel was an unfinished work at the time of Ludlum's death on 12-Mar-2001, my suspicions were confirmed. I know that an adult should rarely use the word 'never' in their vocabulary so I do not state this l [...]

    11. This is the first book in the series and the second Robert Ludlum book I have read. Robert Ludlum was a great writer with great attention to detail. This book is full of many twists and turns and fortunately for Janson he is able to navigate through it all. Of course, there was not enough sex, but Janson is getting up there in years.

    12. Another great Ludlum book of intrigueI like intrigue, and the twists and turns kept me glued. This story will not fail you. If you have read his other books, read this one too,

    13. It was very good many twists & turns. The main theme of it all eventually is revealed, being something completely hard to grasp but something only a select few will truly know!

    14. Robert Ludlum, c’est une vieille histoire d’amour que j’avais envie d’exhumer pour remettre ce fabuleux auteur au goût du jour et relire ses romans avec un œil différent, peut-être plus « mature » que lors des lectures originelles.La Directive Janson est un ouvrage posthume et le premier d’une série autour du personnage de Paul Janson (Paul Garrison, alias de Justin Scott, ayant repris le flambeau pour les deux suivants et Douglas Corleone pour le quatrième tome).Paul Janson s [...]

    15. By Robert Ludlum. Grade: AThe author of 37 novels, Robert Ludlum has been one of the busiest authors in literary circles. The Janson Directive is one of those 5 novels which were credited to Robert Ludlum and published posthumously.The spy game cost Paul Janson everything that was most important to him, so it would take a lot to lure him back into it. But there is one person to whom Janson owes a huge debt- and he’s calling in his marker. Peter Novak has been kidnapped and faces execution at t [...]

    16. enjoyed this. fast thrillerWhen billionaire philanthropist Peter Novak is kidnapped by a terrorist known as The Caliph, it's up to Paul Janson--a legend in the notorious U.S. covert agency Consular Operations--to save him. But Janson's rescue operation goes horribly wrongd soon Janson is marked for death, the target of a "beyond salvage" order issued from the highest level of the government. Now Janson is running for his life, pursued by Jessica Kincaid, a young agent of astonishing ability who [...]

    17. This one was long winded. The opening mission, especially, went on for far too long and, as with much of the rest of the book, it felt like the plot could've been rounded up much quicker. It also reads like a novel that was incomplete (it was only half written when Ludlum died) and it didn't have the same level of cheese that was in the Chancellor Manuscript, which, oddly, I missed. Still, the plot itself was interesting enough and a last act twist genuinely surprised me.

    18. Not Ludlum materialOnly two stars because it does not measure up to the level of a Ludlum book. The story idea was good but the Jansen character was weak at key points. Furthermore, there were useless flashbacks that did nothing to develop the charater. And at least one glaring error in timeline, where Novak refered to yesterday and the storyline established the 'yesterday' event was at least two days earlier.

    19. Fast-paced, often terrifying, with an evil man at the center and a twist to it all, this might have been up on my top shelf with the Bourne books, but it isn't because of the long-winded, turn back and go over stuff, make things as confusing for as long as possible. Paul Janson is superficial compared to Jason Bourne, though he means what he says, has a strong moral core, and is loyal. But

    20. Audible version. Great story, good narration, but the production was just ok. The little musical interludes seemed odd and out of place every time they were used. Enjoyed the character of Paul Janson, and his eventual partner, among others.

    21. Would give it 3 1/2 stars. Slow at times and too long overall. But there is a great story in there and lots of action. At 450 pages would have been 5 star!

    22. When billionaire philanthropist Peter Novak is kidnapped by a terrorist known as The Caliph, it’s up to Paul Janson—a legend in the notorious U.S. covert agency Consular Operations—to save him. But Janson’s rescue operation goes horribly wrong…and soon Janson is marked for death, the target of a "beyond salvage" order issued from the highest level of the government. Now Janson is running for his life, pursued by Jessica Kincaid, a young agent of astonishing ability who can anticipate a [...]

    23. As usual Mr Ludlum wastes no time in getting down to action in this non stop thriller. Our hero Paul Janson has reluctantly accepted a mission to rescue a world famous philanthropist from the clutches of a radical terrorist group who has kidnapped him and sentenced him to a beheading in , shall we say 48 hours. Not much time to work but Ludlum is a master at packing everything into a microscope and blowing it up in the shortest order possible and so it is to be once again. Stretching his almost [...]

    24. I have to admit despite the other "Robert Ludlum" series that I have already read, I haven't actually read one of Robert Ludlum's original novels written before he had passed and other authors had taken over the various series. Now, I have finally taken the time to read this particular novel because it's his original before recently a second book with the same main character, Paul Janson, has been taken over by another author.I have read the Jason Bourne series, and the Covert-One (Lt. Col. Jon [...]

    25. Reasons NOT to give this one four-stars1) Paul Janson is an awesome protaganist. So awesome in fact that he makes James Bond look like an amateur in CONVENIENTLY FINDING WAYS TO FINAGLE OUT OF EVERY SINGLE JAM HE IS IN. He's damn near flawless. He could make a spaceship out of a rotted jack-o-lantern and a few pieces of scrap metal. Not to mention he knows everything about every single piece of technology that shows up in this story. Tony Stark could learn things from this guy. Yessir, Paul Jans [...]
