The Cry of the Halidon - Robert Ludlum

Summary & REVIEW of The Cry of the Halidon by Robert Ludlum

Category: Books
Genre: Mystery & Thrillers
Author: Robert Ludlum

It takes you to a jungle in Jamaica.

Halidon is a “rich” group that lives deep inside the jungle. It is a “hush-hush” group, known only to a few people. They can also be deadly if you inquire or research about anything that could expose them.

They have a nice culture.

“From childhood the Halidonite was told he was privileged and must justify his birthright by his life’s actions. The ethic of contribution we imbued in him early in his education; the need to use his potential to the fullest. The outside world was shown in all it’s detail - it’s simplicities, it’s complications; it’s peace and it’s violence; it’s good and it’s evil. Nothing was concelead; exaggeration was not left to young imaginations. Realistic temptation was balanced - perhaps a bit strongly with realistic punishment” - Daniel

Entertaining and thrilling. So… Robert Ludlum-ish.
