The Bourne Deception picks up where The Bourne Sanction left off. Jason Bourne's nemesis Arkadin is still hot on his trail and the two continue their struggle, reversing roles of hunter and hunted. When Bourne is ambushed and badly wounded, he fakes his death and goes into hiding. In safety, he takes on a new identity, and begins a mission to find out who tried to assassinate him. Jason begins to question who he really is, how much of him is tied up in the Bourne identity, and what he would become if that was suddenly taken away from him.

Meanwhile, an American passenger airliner is shot down over Egypt by what seems to be an Iranian missile. A massive global investigative team is assembled to get at the truth of the situation before it can all escalate into an international scandal. Jason Bourne's search for the man who shot him intersects with the search for the people or the group that brought down the airliner, which leads Bourne into one of the most deadly and challenging situations in his entire life.

With the threat of a new world war brewing, Bourne finds himself in a race against time to uncover the truth and find the person behind his assault, all the while being stalked by his unknown nemesis. Download and start listening now!


Listener Opinions

    " The plot is excellent in the same old Robert Ludlum style. Only the narrative style is somewhat deficient. If only Eric Van Lustbader could match original Robert Ludlum in narrative creativity then this could have ended up as another of the great espionage novels ever written! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Hugues | 5/14/2011

    " The first book of Eric, #4, was so good. Bring us khan on a mighty duo :). Others book, 5-7, don't catch me like 1-4. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 5/3/2011

    " Pretty good, just realized I skipped like two more of the Lustbader Bourne books.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Scott | 4/14/2011

    " Not nearly as enjoyable as the movies. I don't know if it's Van Lustbader's inability to copy Ludlum's style, but it was certainly not a can't-put-it-down book like some of the other Bourne books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 1/20/2011

    " Fast-paced and "scary." Keeping track of the multitude of characters, especially the Russians, slowed me down a bit. Not one of the best books I've read recently. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eric | 1/19/2011

    " Mediocre. Eric Van Lustbader is not Robert Ludlum! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 George | 12/19/2010

    " Poor Bourne just can't catch a break! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matthew | 11/14/2010

    " I didn't really care for this book. I have not read the others in this series so I can't make a comparison to them, but I doubt I will read another after reading this one. It was pretty lame. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 George | 10/17/2010

    " A quick easy read. Lots of extraneous color and description. The plot is plausible for the paranoid: arms dealers and mercenaries and treadstone graduates all combining with some unscrupulous folks at NSA and the pentagon, try to start a war with Iran.


  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marc | 10/9/2010

    " I great thriller, I loved the political undertones that it had throughout. If you like the Bourne movies you will love this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 9/3/2010

    " I read this book while on summer vacation and it was ideal - light enough to read while at the beach and entertaining enough to keep me turning pages. I enjoyed Van Lustbader's writing style and would read another of his Bourne books if the opportunity presents itself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anthony | 8/24/2010

    " Not a bad read. For me, the jury is still out on a new author taking over as writer of the Bourne franchise. "
