Overview

Jason Bourne is one of the most popular and compelling characters in contemporary fiction. Originally created by bestselling author Robert Ludlum, the Jason Bourne series was later adapted into films that have become modern classics. Now, New York Times bestselling writer Eric Van Lustbader carries on Jason Bourne's story with a new novel about the rogue secret agent who has lost his memory . . .

THE BOURNE ASCENDANCY

In this thrilling and absorbing new novel Jason Bourne is faced with an impossible mission. He has been hired to impersonate a high-level government minister at a political summit meeting in Qatar, shielding the minister from any assassination attempts. Suddenly, armed gunmen storm the room, killing everyone but Bourne. Their target, however, isn't the minister Bourne impersonates....it is Bourne himself.

Kidnapped and transported to an underground bunker, Bourne finds himself face-to-face with an infamous terrorist named El Ghadan ("Tomorrow"). El Ghadan holds as his captive Soraya Moore, former co-director of Treadstone, and a close friend to Bourne, along with her two year old daughter.

Meanwhile, the President of the United States is in the midst of brokering a historic peace treaty between the Israelis and the Palestinians-an event that El Ghadan is desperate to prevent. He demands that Bourne carry out a special mission: kill the President. If Bourne refuses, Soraya and her daughter will die.

Bourne must make a monstrous choice: save Soraya and her daughter, or save the President.

    more from this reviewer

    Good for reading on a raining night.

    Even though Ludlum is no longer with us, his "ghost" writers do an
    excellent job. I can't remember any other Bourne books where there's a girl involved in a sex angle like in this book. The book is ok, I give it a 7, but remember all Ludlum's book sell, regardless who the ghost wrier is, Same with Paterson, if he's not writing about Alex Cross there's a ghost writer. Yankee Tony

    Don't miss it

    This book is unlike the others in the series. No vehicle chase.
    Read and you find out what I alluded to. Only necessity will force you to put the book down. This is Ludlum's triumph!
