History repeats itself…unless it doesn’t. Unless we learn the lessons of history, and many times lessons are better learned in stories, mythology and tall tales. Robert Ludlum was a master of post-war mythology, spy stories and larger than life characterizations. After the 2016 election, I pulled an old copy of the Holcroft Covenant off my shelf, not for the first time but as an antidote. No spoilers, but let’s just say recently truth has been stranger than fiction, and this fiction is even more believable today than it was a generation ago.
