He has no past. And he may have no future. His memory is blank. He only knows that he was flushed out of the Mediterranean Sea, his body riddled with bullets. There are a few clues.

A frame of microfilm surgically implanted beneath the flesh of his hip. Evidence that plastic surgery has altered his face. Strange things that he says in his delirium - maybe code words. Initials: J.B. And a number on the film negative that leads to a Swiss bank account, a fortune of four million dollars, and, at last, a name: Jason Bourne.

But now he is marked for death, caught in a maddening puzzle, racing for survival through the deep layers of his buried past into a bizarre world of murderous conspirators - led by Carlos, the world's most dangerous assassin. And no one can help Jason Bourne but the woman who once wanted to escape him. Download and start listening now!

    " reading this book had some profound effects on me "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Crosson | 1/29/2014

    " The only 3 things on common with the movie is: 1) Jason Bourne looses his memory, 2) he goes to a bank in Zurich & 3) there is a girl ned Marie, but she's not German and he didn't meet her at he Embassy. If your a fan of the movie, you'll love the book because it is very different than the movie, so you don't know what comes next. The "the book is better" tag line truly fits here. "

    " Ludlum drove me crazy with his repetitiveness and the way he pretended hold the reader in suspense when the plot was fairly obvious. This is one of the few times when the movie was much better than the movie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William Axtell | 1/4/2013

    " This novel is an absolute belting read. A complex plot, excellent character developement and furious action make this one great read! The only tiny issue I have is that the end is not the most satisfactory as it is trying to set up its own sequel. "
