Meanwhile, an American passenger airliner is shot down over Egypt by what seems to be an Iranian missile. A massive global investigative team is assembled to get at the truth of the situation before it can all escalate into an international scandal. Jason Bourne's search for the man who shot him intersects with the search for the people or the group that brought down the airliner, which leads Bourne into one of the most deadly and challenging situations in his entire life.
With the threat of a new world war brewing, Bourne finds himself in a race against time to uncover the truth and find the person behind his assault, all the while being stalked by his unknown nemesis.
Take another thrill ride with Jason Bourne.

"Reading a Ludlum novel is like watching a James Bond film...slickly paced...all-consuming." (Entertainment Weekly)
"Don't ever begin a Ludlum novel if you have to go to work the next day." (Chicago Sun Times)
The author takes forever to finish each scene. It seems as if the words are written with the purpose of simply making the book longer.
Jason Bourne may be back, but it's a simple fact that Robert Ludlum is, sadly, no longer with us. Ludlum wrote in a particular style with a predictable, yet enjoyable formula. Ludlum must have taken both his style and formula to the grave as both are clearly missing in this latest attempt to trade on one of Ludlum's best characters.. We may have a great movie script but we definitely have nothing approaching a Robert Ludlum novel. "The Bourne Deception" is much more appropriately named than Van Lustbader could have ever intended.
This book follows the previous and really does a dis-service to the legacy that the Identity created. Really sad to see this going this way. I will give the authors one more book to fix my perception, then i'll be done with the book set.
Too much deception - not enough Bourne.
Its possible this great character is fully played out. But people don't go to James Bond movies to see multiple extended scenes without 007. Should be the same here. Bourne should clearly dominate every Bourne story - not just be the most important of several important characters.
This story is not in keeping with Robert Ludlum's great Bourne series books. The story is confusing, unbelievable characters and generally amateurish. I am sorry I spent the money and time on it.
Did not seem like a Bourne book at all. Too many moving parts (moving in too many unbelievable directions). The first book I have every come close to not finishing. I'm glad it's over.
The storyline is very weak and the characters are unbelievable. This book should have been placed under children's fairytales - not suspense and espionage.
Just my opinion, but I consider the purchase of this audiobook a waste on my monthly credit.
I was looking forward to the next Bourne Novel and grabbed this one. Sorry I did! I miss Robert Ludlum. It seems like the entire novel is a series of fight scenes that are so long to the point of being boring. If the author would spend more time on Bourne's early history, as he did on Arkadin (was interesting) it would be more enjoyable. Hungry for more "GOOD BOURNE" but looks like the character has run out.
