Publisher's Summary

Jason Bourne takes on a mission to rescue his only friend in the CIA, Martin Lindros, who disappeared in Africa while tracking shipments of yellowcake uranium. Once safely back in America, Lindros persuades Bourne to help track the money trail of terrorists buying the nuclear material in Odessa.

But once there, Bourne is hampered by confusing flashbacks of unfamiliar places and events, and he wonders: is someone brainwashing him in order to throw him off the trail? Worse, is the man he saved in Africa really Martin Lindros? Now, Bourne is alone, gathering evidence while trying to stay one step ahead of the terrorists who won't let anyone stand in the way of destroying the United States.

    "Hard to follow."

    I loved the Bourne movies, but this audible was hard to follow. I had to keep going back over some of the recording to stay focused. It was like having three or four books in one. That style is not bad,but I had a very hard time following them. After a few weeks I gave it up.

    "Not like Ludlum"

    'I found this book difficult to get into. I finally finished it but I was disappointed in it. The plot seemed to have too many subplots and it was hard to keep track of them all.

    "I love the BOOK!!!!"

    By far the best of the bourne books, Eric Van Lustbader did a great job of telling the story of The Bourne Betrayal.

    "Not quite there yet..."

    Here are the three things you have to deal with in this audio book:
    1) The narrator has a different delivery than some of the others. It needs some getting used to.
    2) The book is unnecessarily long and even though I don't like anyone deciding how to abridge my titles, this one could have benefited from a few cuts.
    3) Most of all however, this book needed an editor. The phrase "At length" is used innumerable times and there are gems such as "The evidence was evident"...

    As for the story, it's convoluted enough with quite a few surprises and bodies along the way.

    "Hated it!"

    Totally boring book. This is the first audiobook I simply ended up by deleting the whole thing. The bad people are simply too smart, too perfect, too omniscient. It was depressing, frustrating and just no fun whatsoever.

    "A movie piece"

    Why I rated this with 4 stars is because Mr. Eric Van Lustbader is the only writer who can emulate the style of Mr. Ludlum. We have Mr. Bourne as a resurrection of Rambo and Ethan Hunt (Mission Impossible)who is well versed in different languages, can disguise in the person of several main characters, crisscross the busy streets in a Ducati despite a hand grabbing his neck like a vise grip slowly depleting his supply of oxygen, submerged underwater for several minutes without gills (like in Harry Potter) and still survives, bleeding and bruised and still subdues his opponents. This book is very entertaining and is definitely made for the movies. The plot however is weak. One CIA officer disappears, rescued by Bourne, assumes his old position because Bourne tells the interrogators that without a doubt, this is Mr. Martin Lindros, his close friend. Then several high ranking officers die after Mr. Lindros assumes his old position in the CIA. Who would you think is the first suspect? Come on!. If this book has a sequel, please indulge in Mr. Bourne's intimate life. Poor guy, Marie died and he is having flashbacks and persecutions for not having saved her. He has been to shrinks and is losing his mind. Give him a break and a little spice in his life too. Soraya is one character who can change his rotten world.

    "Lame"

    I enjoy thriller/mystery stories and am willing to allow the author some license to make his hero somewhat superhuman. Having abilities and knowledge that are extraordinary but Lustbader made Bourne beyond belief. At one point he even hotwires an elevator - do they teach that at spy school? And yet he is amazingly stupid. Even when Bourne had beat the enemy he continues to put himself and the world at peril for no reason other than to have another impossible fight scene. The pitfalls were so predictable and lame that it got tiring to listen too. I was beginning to hope Bourne would get killed and put me out of my misery.
