I picked this one up along with a bunch of others for ten cents each at the permanent booksale on the Boothbay Harbor Public Library porch.

It was okay. A bit reminiscent of all the other thriller/potboilers that inevitably litter the best-seller lists. But The Brotherhood of the Rose wasn't particularly intelligent or well-written. It wasn't painfully stupid either; just a tolerable thriller, a bit predictable, rather shallow, and not particularly memorable or well-written. A tolerable way to kill an hour or two on a commute, but I won't bother to read it again.

For the record, The DaVinci Code is rather similar to The Brotherhood of the Rose; they're both rather simplistic, somewhat insulting to the intelligence of the reader, and awkwardly-written. It you're looking for a superior potboiler of the same general type, try Marathon Man.

Saul Grisman "Romulus" and Chris Kilmoonic "Remus" are foster boys raised by their so called foster father Eloit, the only real masculine figure that they ever knew. They both were trained by United States military elite forces to become two of the most highly trained assault fighters. After Saul carryed out a co-op order to assassinate members of the Paradigm Foundation, the organization turns against him and wants him eliminated. Chris on the other hand was captured in S Vietnam and tortured for trying to stop the flow of cocaine from Loas into S Vietnam, his face was crushed and spine fractures, but he managed to escape captivity to join forces with his foster brother, Saul. Now the two go after the individuals involved in their removal orders and the drama begins. Great novel, fast action, the pages would not stop turning.

Amazing read. I've read it twice over a decade ago and I still remember vividly how much I enjoyed it. A true suspense/espionage classic.
