Publisher's Summary

Jason Bourne needs to regain his life as David Webb, so he accepts an invitation from his beloved mentor, Dominic Specter, to join the Linguistics department at Georgetown. It's a relief to leave the Bourne identity behind, but Jason soon finds himself in a life-or-death confrontation in which every move might be his last.

Specter tells him that a former student and son of his old friend was killed by Muslim extremists known as the Eastern Brotherhood. Their leader is a man named Semian Icoupov, and he must be stopped because his next terrorist target is believed to be right here in America.

While Jason is busy pursuing Icoupov in Russia, he's become a target himself.

Inside CI, a battle is brewing for control over the agency. In order to show the incompetence of its current director, two Pentagon operatives plan to accomplish what CI never could: hunt Bourne down and destroy him.

    "A disapointment"

    A waist of time. I used to admire the Bourne books, but this one is not matching their standards. Also, the audio special effects are idiotic.

    "below average for this series"

    ... the whole book is much more confusing to hear than the other ones. I do not recommend it.

    "Not too bad"

    I don't understand why all the people seem to think this was such a horrible book. I thought it was very interesting, face paced and entertaining. I knew when I bought the book that it wasn't Robert Ludlum, so I wasn't expecting the same caliber of book that Ludlum would have written. Taken for what it is, it was a very entertaining book, well written, and engaging.

    "Not Ludlum"

    My mouth was almost watering at the prospect of a new "Bourne" adventure. Lustbader has a story that could have stood on it's own, yet he chose to ride on a successful storyline. I'm afraid for me this was a case of "Stolen" Identity.

    "A let down from the spirit of the legacy"

    Bourne is positioned to become a legacy. This book does not however keep to the level of intensity, intimacy and depth of character that Bourne has become known for.

    I'd hang on for the next book.

    "Long"

    I enjoy the Bourne series and the author has kept the Ludlum style going. This one had a little too much character development. Could have cut out 1 to 2 hours at least.

    "The 'f' word"
    Would you try another book from Eric Van Lustbader and/or Jeremy Davidson?

    Really? Eric must love the 'f' word so much he feels like he had to use it about every 10 minutes in his story. Literally had to stop listening to this one...if you're offended by this four letter word don't purchase this one!!!


    Would you be willing to try another book from Eric Van Lustbader? Why or why not?

    Not if he continues to use profanity


    What didn’t you like about Jeremy Davidson’s performance?

    Not a good mix of character and voices


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment

    "Suffering my way through."

    This book is horrible. So many weird and confusing names. I can't remember who's who from when I drive in to coming home. There's hardly a plot. Just random stuff to fill the book to a hopefully interesting ending. But so far, it really stinks.

    "Excellent"

    Last 3 books of Bourne series are excellent and narration is excellent too. I read the reviews for first 3 books but but 100% of listeners have reviewed it very bad.. pity. I was hoping to get the same consistent narrator as the last 3 books. I wonder if Audible will ask the publisher to redo the narration in unabridged with with last 3 books narrator.
