Overview

The man Jason Bourne fishes out of the freezing sea is near death, half-drowned and bleeding profusely from a gunshot wound. He awakens with no memory of who he is or why he was shot-and Bourne is eerily reminded of his own amnesia. Then Bourne discovers that the Mossad agent named Rebeka is so determined to find this injured man that she has gone off the grid, cut her ties to her agency, and is now being stalked by Mossad's most feared killer. Do the answers to these mysteries lie back in southeast Lebanon, in a secret encampment to which Bourne and Rebeka escaped following a firefight weeks ago?
The complex trail links to the mission given to Treadstone directors Peter Marks and Soraya Moore: find the semi-mythic terrorist assassin known as Nicodemo.
In the course of Bourne's desperate, deadly search for a secret that will alter the future of the entire world, he will experience both triumph and loss, and his life will never be the same.
Now everything turns on the amnesiac. Bourne must learn his identity and purpose before both he and Rebeka are killed. From Stockholm to Washington, D.C., from Mexico City to Beijing, the web of lies and betrayals extends into a worldwide conspiracy of monumental proportions.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

The comatose, downing man Jason Bourne drags out of the lake in Sweden has a bullet in his head. When he awakens, he has no memory of either the recent or the distant past; in fact, he does not even know his own name. For Jason Bourne, that new brings an eerie reminder of his own erased past. The fast-breaking action of this tenth series novel leaves its hero with little time to muse about personal losses. Suspense, betrayals, and surprises.

Book Reporter
"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."
The Daily Reporter (IA)
"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."

"Chocked-full of clandestine operations and international espionage, this thrill-a-minute novel is a winner."

Reading a Ludlum novel is like watching a James Bond film...slickly paced...all-consuming.

Library Journal
Lustbader's seventh foray (after Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Dominion) into the world of rogue agent Jason Bourne is another terrific thriller. Out on an ice-fishing excursion, Bourne catches a human body on his line. The man is still alive but suffers from amnesia. As Bourne helps the man uncover his past, his own life is thrown into jeopardy and his past called up for review. VERDICT The questionable beginning that echoes Bourne's personal history is a bit hard to swallow. Once readers get past that, the novel turns into an action fest. There is a huge cast of other characters with their own storylines, so series newcomers should start with an earlier book. Fans will discover this to be the best Lustbader Bourne novel yet, even with the hokey start. The August release of Bourne Legacy with Jeremy Renner, the fourth entry in the film franchise, should only spark more interest.
Kirkus Reviews
Jason Bourne is alive and well, but this, the 10th installment of the franchise, is tired. The prolific Van Lustbader's (Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Dominion, 2011, etc.) latest Bourne is tedious. The prologue: A man is running, a woman pursuing, across a snowbound landscape in Sweden. They engage in hollow dialogue, punctuated by witless description, then proceed to the killing. While fishing and discussing conspiracies with his friend Christien Norén, Bourne snags a body, lifts it from the water. Flash to the Oval Office. The secretary of defense is briefing a dubious president, who is asking pointed questions about the health of Treadstone directors Peter Marks and Soraya Moore and checking on Dick Richards, his eyes in the spy shop. We glimpse Marks and Moore back in the office, then overhear a conversation at Mossad headquarters: Rebeka, a prized agent, has gone rogue; Ilan Halevy, "the Babylonian," is sent to kill her. It is not long before Bourne becomes reacquainted with Rebeka; the man fished from the icy waters regains his memory; and the mystery deepens about the Israeli research facility in Lebanon. We become acquainted with financier Don Fernando, "sometime partner" of Norén. He has suspicions about Core Energy's CEO, Tom Brick. A shadowy character identified as Nicodemo is doing Brick's dirty laundry--extorting, killing. Before long Bourne and Rebeka are chasing Nicodemo from one side of the Atlantic while Moore and Marks try to net him on the other. The Chinese have a stake in the Israeli research, Dick Richards is tricky, and a Mexican cartel boss, who, like almost everybody, wants Bourne dead, may have the funds, the smarts and the guts to outspend and outmaneuver--on and on it spins. A carousel of stereotypes, devoid of suspense.

    Robert Ludlum's The Borne Imperative is another compelling story

    Robert Ludlum's The Borne Imperative is another compelling story with intuitively observed characters that he successful brought to life with alacrity and permanence in the mind of the reader. The dialogue is very engaging, and i also found the setting colorful.Bourne brings to mind Gavin in Triple Agent Double Cross. Overall, this is a well written work with a gripping plot, awesome characterization, beautiful dialogue and absorbing setting. In short it is an accomplished writing and a compelling read.

    There are so many characters in this novel, you should like at least one of them, right? But instead a tiresome series of fights occurs, multiple plot lines must be learned, and nothing that resonates in reality is there for the reader to be concerned about. We know that Bourne will win all of his fights, so reading the details of the battles seems a waste of time. Plenty of people die, but not one you care about. Well, maybe Rebeka. But the plot as it is is so wispy that the reader doesn't know what the stakes are. And the book is badly edited. "Her said" when "he said" is appropriate. Take a look at Chapter 28. Bourne is uncomfortable in the cockpit of the military plane:
    "Bourne shifted his satphone from one ear to another...he was riding up in the cockpit. The Mirage fighter jet...wasn't comfortable..." (Page 398)Problem is, Bourne isn't to the fighter jet yet! He has just been picked up in a car the page before, and a turn of the page has him in that car, not the cockpit, riding to a boutique hotel. He doesn't go to the jet until page 405.
    But does it matter? It only emphasizes what a mess this novel is. Give me a plot with a sense of purpose and some characters to care for, throw in a good writer and I will have a good read. This one wasn't.

    There was good action, but I was a bit unclear on the motivation of the characters. It seemed a little off the wall that they would take such an interest.

    Good read

    I have enjoyed reading all the Bourne novels. I gave this four stars because of the characters. It is kind of hard keeping up with them all. Still a great read.

    Too many characters to keep track of and a confusing potpouri of agendas and plots.that test the readers concentration. Fate of two of the central characters is left unresolved . Skipping from venue to venue as the author does throughout the book, makes for some confusion and there is too much history given about troo many of the characters in the authors quest to develop those characters. Otherwise, the action is fast and furious.
