Publisher's Summary

The world’s most ruthlessly efficient assassin, Jason Bourne, is facing the one force he can’t defeat - his own past - in the latest thrilling entry in Robert Ludlum’s New York Times best-selling series.

Three years ago, Jason Bourne embarked on a mission in Estonia with his partner and lover, a fiery Treadstone agent code-named Nova. Their job was to rescue a Russian double agent who’d been smuggled out of St. Petersburg in the midst of an FSB manhunt.

They failed. The Russian died at the hands of a shadowy assassin known only by the nickname Lennon.

Now everything has changed for Bourne. Nova is gone, killed in a mass shooting in Las Vegas. Bourne is a lone operative, working in the shadows for Treadstone, when he’s called in for a new mission in London - to prevent another assassination masterminded by Lennon.

But nothing about this mission is what it seems. As Bourne engages in a cat-and-mouse game with Lennon across the British countryside, he discovers that everything he thought he knew about the past was a lie. And with the body count rising, he comes to an inevitable conclusion: Some secrets should stay buried.

Just Too Intense!

If you are familiar with the term “ham sandwich“ then perhaps this review might have greater meaning for you.

I have always enjoyed reading the Bourne series and I especially like Scott Brick’s narration in other books I have listened to, especially the Jack reacher series. However, I just couldn’t get myself to finish listening to this novel.

I fully understand and appreciate the intonations and emotion that a professional reader needs to deliver to bring the story to life.

There were simply too many times in this novel where the level of intensity provided by the narrator is just over-the-top. Imagine you’re reading a story and all of the words on the page are uppercase, bold type, and every sentence is followed by five exclamation marks. That is what it feels like listening to this novel.

I kept expecting the high intensity reading to slow down and give way to calm and an emotional respite but it just never did.

I still love the Jason Bourne series and I still thoroughly enjoy listening to Scott Brick narrate, but I might be better served just reading this novel instead of listening to it so I can control the level of intensity that I experience.

Disappointed

This author has ruined the Bourne series. I have been a Ludlum fan forever and I was truly disappointed with this mess of a novel.

Mistake

Bourne makes too many mistake to be a super spy. He was lucky to be alive. We deserve better from the writer.

Terrible

Robert Ludlum wouldn’t want his name on this. Very disappointing. The Bourne series is one of the best spy stories written but this book falls short. Terrible story, deeply flawed characters. Don’t waste your time.

Bourne is a "has been!"

Jason Bourne is a character who needs to be retired! This new writer has been making money off of
Robert Ludlum's talent as a storyteller. He can not hold a candle to Ludlum as a writer and hIs story seems rather trite and predictable. There are plenty of other writers out there to read that are telling a better story.

Vintage Bourne

I read all the original books and this was consistent with them. Loved the movies, but always questioned the psychological problems that Bourne has and in this case the brainwashing of Nova. Scott Brick does his usual best job and the story ends well but overall the story is a little far fetched.
