The man Jason Bourne fishes out of the freezing sea is near death, half-drowned and bleeding profusely from a gunshot wound. He awakens with no memory of who he is or why he was shot - and Bourne is eerily reminded of his own amnesia. Then Bourne discovers that the Mossad agent named Rebeka is so determined to find this injured man that she has gone off the grid, cut her ties to her agency, and is now being stalked by Mossad's most feared killer. Do the answers to these mysteries lie back in southeast Lebanon, in a secret encampment to which Bourne and Rebeka escaped following a firefight weeks ago?
The complex trail links to the mission given to Treadstone directors Peter Marks and Soraya Moore: find the semi-mythic terrorist assassin known as Nicodemo.
In the course of Bourne's desperate, deadly search for a secret that will alter the future of the entire world, he will experience both triumph and loss, and his life will never be the same. Now everything turns on the amnesiac. Bourne must learn his identity and purpose before both he and Rebeka are killed. From Stockholm to Washington, D.C., from Mexico City to Beijing, the web of lies and betrayals extends into a worldwide conspiracy of monumental proportions.

Yes. Narrator was very easy to listen to.
Very good plot, not as good as a couple of his earlier books.
This is the first time I have listened to Holter Graham and will recommend him.
It's Imperative that Bourne has a chance.
The only drawback I had is a couple of characters were very soft spoken and I had to rewind and turn up the volume to hear what the character said.
No. While I've been an avid reader of Eric Van Lustbader for years and a fan of Ludlum's Jason Bourne novels, this one just didn't do it for me. I couldn't finish it. Maybe it had something to do with the constant repetition of the Spanish names. The storyline just started to plod along midway through the novel. This is not what I'd consider one of Lustbader's better efforts.
He was ok.
No. In fact, I just couldn't finish listening about two thirds of the way through.
I think the Jason Bourne saga has run it's course.
Story move slowly and did not have the typical Bourne aggressive storyline. While Bourne is part of the plot line, he is not the primary character. This was a little disappointing.
I would give him another try. His other books (Bourne and other stories) were entertaining.
Mr. Graham did fine. His voice inflection allowed you to imagine the different characters.
This book, as written, would not make a strong movie or TV series. However, since Hollywood has already deviated from the Bourne story line, they could take the premise of the story and script it for the screen.
Retired 35 year policeman from So CA, relocated with my wife to South Carolina with "Toby" our cat. I listen to two books a week
Again, no? many more quality book to listen to.
Characters as always are expertly written
He is the characters
no, little at a time was perfect
This ain't Ludlum. Makes you wonder how much this guy paid to rent the name. This is a collection of overly-worded preposterous banalities, poorly read. Saturday morning cartoons are less insulting to the intellect..
refrained from writing it.
There is no end to the negatives. As much as it was possible, he destroyed a bad book
yes, all three, I think.
Tell this "reader" ,and I use the term loosely, that vaudevillian melodrama is like so yesterday.
Loved the story the action the twists and turns and Bourne survives again. This book reads more like a Movie Script than a Novel. All the detailed descriptions of the chases and escapes were excessive. However; it was a strap yourself in and lets go for a typical Bourne ride.... exciting, entertaining and riveting. Van Lustbader does well to keep Bourne fresh and relevant which is quite an accomplishment.
Holter Grahams performance was disappointing. Bourne needs a strong performance, he sounded like a teenager narrating. If it wasn't a Bourne novel I couldn't have listened for long.
How bad can 1 book be? I tried, I really did, what a snoozer!
Dont waste your hard earned money!
Poor narration and difficult plot to follow. I gave up.
I won't get another Borne
I'm no prude, but this book was one orgy after another, and the plot was weak. We could not follow the characters or the sub-characters by word or sound. We could not stand to finish this trash. Two hours was all the torture we could take.
One of the classics of literature so I can erase this trash from my mind.
A third grader with a speech impediment.
Everything after the title page.
This is the second time I've made the mistake of starting one of these fake-Ludlum books, I will never make that mistake again.
Hard to track.
Many great characters, just a few too many.
The performance was really first rate with Spanish and Chinese accents done just right.
Good... but in audio book form, it is difficult to keep all the characters and story lines straight. In a paper book, or even an e-book, you can page back to remind yourself of who a character is. This book has several sub-plots progressing at the same time and switches back and forth a lot. That, coupled with so many characters, makes it difficult to keep them all straight. This is especially true if you only have time to listen in short sessions.
