Two months after Jason Bourne’s second wife has died, he learns that Martin Lindros, his only friend in the CIA, went missing in Africa where he was tracking shipments of yellowcake uranium. After Bourne finds him, Martin returns to the US, but only after he persuades Bourne to go to Odessa to penetrate the clandestine world of terrorist money men there.

In Odessa, Bourne is hampered by confusing flashes of memories. He becomes convinced that they’re false, but who planted them and why? And how can he function if he can’t rely on his own memories? Eventually, Bourne figures out that the man he saved in Africa isn’t his friend but a double, a terrorist intent on sending Bourne off on a wild goose chase while he himself steals US intelligence and uses the information to coordinate an attack against a major US city using nuclear devices.

The double, continuing to pose as Martin Lindros, orders a worldwide sanction against Bourne. Now, Bourne must fight off attempts on his life, track down uranium, and stop terrorists from launching an even more devastating attack against the US.

    " Due to the incredibly rank language I stopped listening after 10 hours. I was very interested in the story line but couldn't take the F-bombs anymore. Where is the rating system for books that warn against this kind of content. I do not buy many books because of this concern. Just and "L" for language would be appreciated. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 RH Walters | 2/15/2014

    " An entertaining audiobook for the car, especially since the narrator uses a lot of different voices. Some descriptions made us laugh (e.g. Lender's "beefy ass"), but we definitely got sucked into the plot and finished it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 2/6/2014

    " It has been a long time since a read a Bourne novel. If you like Jason Bourne books this is a good one. Action packed and full of surprises. "

    " Good thriller. Started a little slow but finished fast paced. "

    " Eric Van Lustbader fails to match up to Robert Ludlum's original.REsult is a disappointing novel for Jason Bourne enthusiasts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonnie | 1/8/2014

    " It's never a good idea to read (or in my case listen to) the 5th book in a series when you haven't read the first four. I have seen the movies based on the books thus far, but that really isn't the same. So I was not up to speed with some elements of the story. Also, it is a very long book and so for a third of the way through it I really considered quitting. Then things got really interesting and I ended up enjoying the rest of the book in spite of the fact that (as in most stories and especially movies of this sort) the hero and main villains should have been dead at least 20 times before the end. "

    " Unbelievable how people are supposed to survive bullets and injuries and still be expert fighters. A bit of a parody. "

    " I have seen the previous 3 Bourne movies but have not read any of the other books. It has a tremendous amount of killing and inflicting injury and pain! However it was suspenseful and comes up with many surprises. "

    " This was a fun read, but I have to say that the writers who are "finishing" Ludlum's work are definitely not Ludlum. "
