Overview

Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Objective (Bourne Series #8) by Eric Van Lustbader

Facing down mercenaries in Africa, Jason Bourne witnesses the death of an art dealer named Tracy Atherton. Her killing dredges up snatches of Bourne's impaired memory, in particular the murder of a young woman on Bali who entrusted him with a strangely engraved ring­-an artifact of such powerful significance that people have killed to obtain it. Now he's determined to find the ring's owner and purpose. But Bourne never knows what terrible acts he'll discover he committed when he digs into the past.

The trail will lead him through layers of conspiracy to a vicious Russian mercenary, Leonid Arkadin, who was also a graduate of the Central Intelligence training program Treadstone. A covert course designed to create ruthless assassins for C.I., it was shuttered by Congress for corruption. Yet before it was dismantled, it produced Bourne and Arkadin, giving them equal skills, equal force, and equal cunning.

As Bourne's destiny circles closer to Arkadin's, it becomes clear that the eventual collision of these men is not of their own making. Someone else has been watching and manipulating them. Someone who wants to know, Who is the more deadly agent?

Having read the last two books featuring Bourne's "evil twin" Leonid Arkadin, I expected a nice end to the explosive trilogy...and I was not disappointed. A little hard to follow at first, the book picks up almost immediately. If you are a Bourne fan and do not mind that Mr. Lustbader has taken over the famous series, you will not be disappointed. I give it a 4/5, and excitedly wait for the presumed next novel, The Bourne Reality.

The CIA creator of Treadstone hunts the two top graduates, American Jason Bourne and Russian Leonid Arkadin. The inventor needs to know first hand what failed in the fail safe Treadstone program so the error can be rectified and a new generation of super skilled cold killers can be created. Once the mission accomplished, Treadstone wants each to kill the other. Bourne and Arkadin stalk one another even while the former gains possession of a ring coveted by a secret cabal, Severus Domna, who believe the jewelry leads to King Solomon's gold; a major step for their achieving their goal of world control. Meanwhile Bourne continues his personal hunt to learn who he was while Treadstone, Servus Domna and Arkadin focus on his death. Although at times inane, readers will enjoy this fast-paced conspiracy thriller as two major webs converge on Bourne as well as Arkadin. Loaded with action, fans will anticipate a showdown between the two Treadstone grads as each understands the world has room for only one and if their "mentor and the cabal have their way: none.

I would be very tempted to buy this book if not for the price. I cannot believe they charge this much for a book in 'e' format.

Author needs to ditch Arvadin & Treadstone and find another reason for Bourne to exist. This book was drudgery. I will not buy another if this hackneyed premise shows up again. And, I've bought them all. And I've enjoyed Lustbader too.
