Publisher's summary

Jason Bourne returns in this stunning new thriller from Eric Van Lustbader, continuing Robert Ludlum's classic series.

General Boris Karpov, head of the feared Russian FSB, is dead. But Karpov has reached out from the grave with an unstoppable cyber operation he conceived before his murder, aimed at the heart of the United States - a way to steal the president's nuclear launch codes. Who has taken over the operation? Karpov trusted only one man: Jason Bourne. But can Bourne be working against his own country? The US government is convinced of his treason and is doing everything in its power to kill him. Flushed from cover and gravely wounded, Bourne's only hope is to join forces with his bitterest enemy: A powerful Somali terrorist named Keyre and his protoge, the Angelmaker. If he hopes to survive, Bourne has no choice but unravel the mystery of Karpov's last legacy - a weaponized code that may bring about the unthinkable: A violent end to America.

Hard to listen to

I love the Bourne movies and was excited to give this a listen. The story was pretty solid and the plot intriguing. My challenge was that the reader seemed a bit removed from the storyline. Also, the tone and cadence of the voice he used for the main character was flat and almost hard to listen too. I gutted it out and didn't return it, but there are so many better picks out there. I will listen to the previews more closely next time to make sure I don't have to go through that again.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.

Disappointing.

lt is a pity that author copies class B action movies instead of develooing the full potential of this exceptional character. I know how difficult it must be to compete with the real world, which became a thriller itself. Nevertheless, one expect from Bourne novels more than a dummy Bourne and a plot, which is artificial, predictable and devoured of true emotions.
