Author of countless Cold War espionage thrillers. Ludlum's best work includes The Bourne Identity, The Chancellor Manuscript, and The Aquitaine Progression, and The Holcroft Covenant.

Ludlum had two formulas: the unstoppable super agent who had somehow lost his powers (amnesia was a favorite) or the everyman thrown into the middle of some international conspiracy who somehow manages to survive.
