After their deadly cat-and-mouse game in THE BOURNE SANCTION,
Jason Bourne and his nemesis Arkadin now reverse the roles of hunter
and hunted – and the action gets even hotter. When Bourne is
ambushed and badly wounded, he fakes his death and goes into hiding.
In safety, he takes on a new identity and begins a mission to find out
who tried to assassinate him. Jason begins to question who he really is,
how much of him is tied up in the Bourne identity, and what he would
become if that was suddenly taken away from him.
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 to the truth before the situation can escalate
into an international disaster. Jason Bourne’s search for the man who
shot him intersects with the search for the people that brought down the
airliner, leading Bourne into one of the most deadly and challenging
situations he has ever encountered. With the threat of a new world war
brewing, Bourne finds himself in a race against time to uncover the
truth, all the while being stalked by his unknown assassin.
Praise for Robert Ludlum and the Bourne series:
‘Ludlum stuffs more surprises into his novels than any other six-pack of thriller writers combined’
NEW YORK TIMES
‘Don’t ever begin a Ludlum novel if you have to go to work the next day
‘Reading a Ludlum novel is like watching a James Bond film … slickly paced … all consuming’
