Jason Bourne is searching for an elusive cadre of terrorists planning to destroy America's most strategic natural resources. He needs the help of his long-time friend, General Boris Karpov, the newly appointed head of Russia's most feared spy agency, FSB-2. Karpov is one of the most determined, honorable, and justice-hungry men that Bourne knows. But Karpov has made a deal with the devil. In order to remain the head of FSB-2, he must hunt down and kill Bourne.
Now, these two trusted friends are on a deadly collision course. From the Colombian highlands to Munich, Cadiz, and Damascus, the clock is counting down to a disaster that will cripple America's economic and military future. Only Bourne and Karpov have a chance to avert the catastrophe - but if they destroy each other first, that chance will be gone forever.
Jason Bourne is one of the most compelling and best-loved characters created by internationally best-selling novelist Robert Ludlum. The hero of eight novels, including The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremacy, Bourne has also been featured in three blockbuster movies starring Matt Damon. Now, New York Times best-selling author Eric Van Lustbader presents a new story about the rogue secret agent who has lost his memory.

Absolutely. Even though these books often miss the mark in terms of reading like a Ludlum novel, a lot of cool stuff comes from just the attempt.
I can appreciate the decisions he made that kept the character consistent. It has to be hard to keep the character feeling the same from book to book with different narrators.
These questions really have to go.
If you have committed to the Bourne character then i don't really know how you can pas son this. It's not the best but its one of the closer to real ones out there.
I'm grossed out by the profanity... pretty ridiculous. Hadn't heard this much cussing in the last couple years combined. What a let down!!!!!
I wish that I could return audible books, I made the mistake of buying 4 Van Lustbader titles at the same time (on a friend's recomendation). I could drive a beer truck threw some of the holes in these stories. What a waste of credits, Van Lustbader - never again. you ruined Jason Bourne 4 me forever.
This is your typical Jason Bourne story, lots of action and overblown description, but fun. The background music did nothing for the story and, in fact, detracted significantly from it. I will try to ascertain whether such interference is present before I buy any other books.
