On Parrish Island, a restricted island off the coast of Virginia, is a little-known and never-visited psychiatric facility. There, far from prying eyes, the government stores former intelligence employees whose psychiatric states make them a danger to their own government, people whose ramblings might endanger ongoing operations or prove dangerously inconvenient. One of these employees, former Consular Operations agent Hal Ambler, is kept heavily medicated and closely watched. But there's one difference between Hal and the other patients - Hal isn't crazy. With the help of a sympathetic nurse, Hal manages to clear his mind of the drug-induced haze and then pulls off a daring escape. Now he's out to discover who stashed him here and why - but the world he returns to isn't the one he remembers. Friends and longtime associates don't remember him, there are no official records of Hal Ambler, and, when he first sees himself in the mirror, the face that looks back at him is not the one he knows as his own.--Publisher's description.… (més)

Listened to this on my round trip to Arkansas (1000 miles) and it kept me interested. The plot is great. It could probably be a lot shorter if heavily edited, but I think most have come to expect the length from Mr. Ludlum. The main character is supposed to be a hardened operative, so I was surprised that he seemed vulnerable and fell in love easily--I would have though he'd be more cautious. I think there were a few loose threads as well, but there are so many lines in the book that I don't think I kept up well. ( )
  Angel.Tatum.Craddock | Dec 17, 2020 |
Written posthumously from notes and outlines left behind by Ludlum, The Ambler Warning was completed by a ghost writer for the estate, as such it does lack the usual oomph that a Ludlum thriller has.

There is also a few small problems with the flow of the story, where scenes simply cut off rather than explain how they eventuated, this seems more like lazy writing than a method of building intensity. I also felt the whole memory altering aspect had an air of the Bourne Identity to it, albeit implemented in a different way, perhaps this was why Ludlum hadn't written it whilst alive.

Asides for this, it's an alright book, it's certainly engaging once you put aside the short comings and air of deju vu around the circumstances surrounding Harrison Ambler vis-à-vis the Bourne circumstances.

I'd give it a 3.5/5, not terrible, but nor was it outstanding, strictly middle of the road good. ( )

Another story much like the Bourne series. A guy who has been betrayed by his own government employer. locked in a psych facility, stripped of identity, etc. Did not finish reading it. Probably seen the Bourne films too many times to find this story novel. ( )
  ElizabethCromb | Mar 2, 2019 |
This story would make a better movie than a book. The story is OK and ripe for the big screen if it can be done as well as the other Ludlam books. I listened to this on CD and the writing just isn't great. It's OK. The story was better than the narrative and had an unpredictable twist near the end with plenty of killing and action. Yes, it would make a very fine movie, as the Bourne series has. Some bits of the story seemed muddy or confusing, at least upon listening. Maybe those are clearer if read. ( )
