Publisher's Summary

It all starts with a cat-and-mouse chase to the death in a Baltimore funfair: the Jackal, Bourne's age-old antagonist, is back, and Bourne is forced from his idyllic retirement with his wife and children to confront his enemy. In Europe, Russia, and America, there are men and women whose lust for power is disguised by their positions and respectability. Their aim: to gain control at the highest level, to avenge, to destroy.

Jason Bourne has been the assassin before: now he longs for peace with his family, but the threat of the Jackal puts in jeopardy all possibility of peace....

©1990 Robert Ludlum (P)2008 Random House Audio

clever plot but laboriously long winded!

Overly melodramatic performance of a laboriously long winded text. Many, MANY repetitions of key phrases drive the listener to distraction!!!!! Clever plots draw in the audience but it goes on, and on, and ON!!!! Glad I listened to it rather than read it because I would not have had the inclination to struggle on - it was bad enough anyway!!!!

Utter Disappointment

The first book had minimal swearing, the second had rather more, this was just a litany of unnecessary foul language which detracted from the whole. And I had all on to the finish the book for this one point alone.
The writing; was at best sloppy, with recurring phraseology that was predictable and boring.
The plot; thinner than chiffon fabric - transparent and flimsy. This book should have been a third of it's length, shocking from an editorial position. How many times could the Jackal slip through Bournes grasp with any sense of authenticity - it just went on and on and on.
Sadly, I cannot recommend this book.

Excellent!

The narrator is as good as ever. This book sums the spirit, as much as the sanity of Jason Bourne. Overwhelmingly gripping!

Phenomenal series

You couldn't be disappointed if you downloaded and listened to all 3 of these books! The twists and turns just kept coming... to the point of frustration at times I'll admit but it all comes together in the end. Narration was nothing short of spectacular either.
