    The world's two deadliest spies in the ultimate showdown. At a small-town carnival two men, each mysteriously summoned by telegram, witness a bizarre killing. The telegrams are signed Jason Bourne. Only they know Bourne's true identity and understand the telegram is really a message from Bourne's mortal enemy, Carlos, known also as the Jackal, the world's deadliest and most elusive terrorist. And furthermore, they know that the Jackal wants: a final confrontation with Bourne.

    Overall

    This was a good narration. I truly enjoyed it. The narrator has a way of making the story and making the motivation believable. There were some slow points but that is not so much of a detractor as these periods gave the listener relevant detail that amplify the intrigue of the story. Many say a typical Ludlum and I agree. There is a certain amount of closure to the Jason Borne story as we learn of his past and present. A great book for a real fan!

    When the NSA's invincible code-breaking machine encounters a mysterious code it cannot break, the agency calls its head cryptographer, Susan Fletcher, a brilliant, beautiful mathematician. What she uncovers sends shock waves through the corridors of power. The NSA is being held hostage, not by guns or bombs, but by a code so complex that if released it would cripple U.S. intelligence.

    The narrator was great and convincing. He was believable.
