Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
03/03/2014
Lustbader's eighth thriller continuing the Ludlum franchise (after 2012's The Bourne Imperative) is burdened with groan-inspiring prose ("she arched her back, her heavy breasts crowned with dark nipples rising out of the water like questing sea creatures") and implausible action sequences, even by the series' low standards. Jason Bourne is heartbroken over the death of his latest amour, and is now working with Israeli intelligence. But his assignment to safeguard a senior Mossad official on a visit to Mexico is botched, and he's propelled into mind-numbing intrigue involving not only narcotics traffickers but rival Chinese factions. Sloppy errors, such as misusing the Hebrew word aliya as a synonym for penance, further defeat efforts to make all of this seem real. Whatever was original in Ludlum's initial conception of an amnesiac superagent in his trilogy has long been lost in a welter of clichés, with the worst saved for last. (Dec.)
The Daily Reporter (IA) on The Bourne Imperative
"In true Bourne fashion, "The Bourne Imperative" is fast-paced and full of action. There are twists and turns that even the grandest of plot detectives could not forsee."
Book Reporter on The Bourne Imperative
"Eric Van Lustbader keeps the action and plot moving forward, and the tension never lets up...readers most assuredly will be gasping for breath as each eye-opening chapter unfolds."
Booklist on The Bourne Dominion
"The twists, the nonstop action, and the multilayered plot that Ludlum fans expect are here in abundance. Fans of the Bourne films will eat this one up."
Booklist on The Bourne Imperative
"Readers familiar with the story of Jason Bourne and Treadstone will be flipping pages as fast as they can...Van Lustbader pulls readers through the story with gusto...For series fans, a solid continuation of Bourne's story."

Time to retire this rendition of Jason Bourne.  Disconnected story lines with too many confused characters to create any urgency to read on.  Don't think Mr. Ludlum would approve of how his creation has evolved.

One of the best Bourne books I have read. I almost thought I was reading Daniel Silva. This book flows from start to finish.
