For Martin Odum, both remembering and forgetting his past are dangerous options. A CIA agent turned private detective, Odum is struggling through a labyrinth of memories of past identities - or "legends" in CIA parlance. Is he really Martin Odum? Or is he Dante Pippen, IRA explosives maven? Or Lincoln Dittmann, Civil War expert? Or yet another legend? Is he suffering from multiple personality disorder, brainwashing, or simply exhaustion? Can he trust the CIA psychiatrist, or the Deputy Director of Operations? What about Stella Kastner, the young Russian woman who hires him to find her brother-in-law?
As Odum redeploys his dormant skills to solve Stella's case, he travels the globe battling danger and disorientation. Part Three Faces of Eve, part The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, and always pure Robert Littell, Legends again proves his unparalleled prowess as a seductive storyteller, exploring the clandestine but always very human world of secret agents.
