Robert Ludlum’s The Holcroft Covenant: Is it worth the long read?

Ludlum_-_The_Holcroft_Covenant_Coverart

As many of my regular readers and podcast audience members may or may not know, I am a huge fan of Audible which allows me to purchase audiobooks at a discounted price and listen to them wherever I am.

This month I decided to use one of the two audiobook credits I receive monthly to get the audiobook version of The Holcroft Covenant  by Robert Ludlum. The book was originally published in 1978, and was later made into a movie 1985. The story follows Noel Holcroft, a young architect who finds out that his biological father was a German S.S. commander that grew a conscience about the horrors of The Holocaust before the war ended. Noel finds out that his father left him a $7 billion fund which is to be distributed amongst the survivors of The Holocaust . Holcroft is also warned that a remnant sect of Nazi sympathizers and their offspring will try and prevent him from obtaining the money and will instead use it to start “The Fourth Reich”.
