Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Jason Bourne is a hunted man, but he's also a relentless hunter. His memory is damaged, yet even a full month after Rebeka's death, he can't stop mourning her. To avenge her murder, he accepts a dangerous assignment to investigate China Politburo member Ouyang Jidan, the man who ordered her killing. His intense personal motive entangles him, however, in far-ranging conspiracies that involve not only Chinese bad guys, but also Mexican drug cartels and Russian operatives. A signature Bourne thriller; now in mass-market paperback and NOOK Book. Editor's recommendation.

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.)

    Time to retire this rendition of Jason Bourne.  Disconnected sto

    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.
