Ys i have read Scarlatti Inheritance and most of Ludlum series.
Scarlatti is good.
But look out for Matarese Circle, Chancellor Manuscript. They might be better.
Also, is Bourne Ultimatum better than Bourne Identity ???

Robert Ludlum is one of my favourite authors. I just finished the Bourne Ultimatum,and I have to say that it is his best work yet!
By the way, has anyone read the Scarlatti Inheritance?

I'm trying to determine the order that Ludlum books were written/published in so that I may start my son on the series. I have had the pleasure of reading them all but can't remember when or in which order.

Long ago my dad and I listened to the Matarres circle on a road trip, the book was simply put amazing but to our utter disappointment when the final tape stopped it said the book is continued in part 2. Now for more than a decade we both have searched but have found nothing of the Matarres cricle part 2! Can anyone help me? I really want to finish this amazing tale.

I had always loved the Chancellor Manuscript and spent awhile searching for it.
Does anyone who is writing in his name now or did I miss that posting?

I've owned his entire collection since I first discovered he had actually written "Trevayne" under another name and forturnately I had purchased it. I've always loved the Bourne books but...in my humble opinion his best was "The Scarlatti Inheritance".

Bourne is definitly the most popular but I really enjoyed the Gemini Contenders and the Ostermann Weekend

I knew nothing of Ludlum until I bought The Bourne Identity at an opp shop for $1:00 because I just wanted something to read.
I loved it and then read the next two in the Bourne trilogy. Since then I have collected and read every book he wrote.
I enjoyed them all but still think the Bourne books are my favourites along with the Matarese Circle.

I know this is like asking which of your children is your favorite child, but.... which Ludlum is generally considered his best?
