Timed to coincide with the feature film release of The Bourne Supremacy, starring Matt Damon, comes a new novel in the bestselling tradition of Robert Ludlum's beloved Bourne series In Robert Ludlum's ground-breaking career, no other character so captured the world's imagination as Jason Bourne. He appeared in three of Robert Ludlum's own #1 bestselling novels, his bestselling works to this day. Now, with the major motion picture adaptation of Ludlum's The Bourne Supremacy, the Ludlum estate has finally acceded to the demands of readers around the world, turning to bestselling writer Eric Van Lustbader to create a brand new Jason Bourne novel, The Bourne Legacy. Jason Bourne, international assassin of deadly repute, was an identity assumed by covert agent David Webb. Retired from the CIA and now a professor at Georgetown University, Webb's life is finally his own-until he becomes the target of an assassin and is framed for the murder of his two closest associates. Fighting for his life against unseen assailants, the Bourne identity asserts itself, leaving Jason Bourne in control. Barely a half-step ahead of his nemesis and the CIA, who believes he has gone rogue, Bourne finds himself a pawn in a larger, far deadlier game.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gavin Ayling | 2/16/2014

    " Exciting and non-stop action. The new Bond is much better written than the original Bonds, and now he's American! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Johnsom2478 | 2/15/2014

    " A little too much escaping from one dire situation to the next without enough substance. Like it was written to be a movie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe | 2/13/2014

    " Very good book. It was the first one of the Jason Bourne books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 2/10/2014

    " Good beach read. I'm not entirely clear on the order of all the Bourne books, but I'm pretty sure you can read this right after you read (or watch) Bourne Supremacy (the third movie). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Philbin | 2/8/2014

    " Well, reading a Lustbader book's like reading a book from Frank Herber'ts son. Well written. Page turner. By the numbers action. Sure. But the Ludlum voice is no longer there. Yet despite the anodyne 'voice' Lustbader has (and his mixing metaphors) I sorta enjoyed this quite a lot. Nice twist on a series that's shifted quite a way from where the films went. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pranshu | 2/5/2014

    " It was nice but didn't enjoy as much as the first three books... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lentot Odulio | 2/3/2014

    " this is the next to bourne ultimatum. can't get my hands on bourne betrayal! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 AurelioZen | 1/23/2014

    " Didn't have the vibrant feel to it like Robert Ludlum's stories of Jason Bourne. But it was okay. Maybe it had something to do with expectations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eva María | 1/20/2014

    " Didn't like it that much as the Ludlum ones, still very entertaining, someone from the past comes to make Bourne's life more 'complete' "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Angela N | 1/11/2014

    " Every other sentence they were swearing F this and GD that. Some foul language doesn't bother me too much if it isn't too much or if it is context, but I felt the characters were just swearing because they could. I couldn't finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shrihari Chakrapani | 1/8/2014

    " Super, and very neatly scripted story. Has every drop of adrenaline pumped up during the course "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John Porter | 12/29/2013

    " Bad even for an airplane read. Just let the character die, man. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charles | 12/24/2013

    " It could have been better without the sexual scenes. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jared | 12/8/2013

    " Could not get into it and I tried! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lincoln | 11/17/2013

    " Great book if you're into the Bourne series. The action sequences read just like a movie and you also get all of the psycological torment and suspense as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abhi Bhaskar | 6/10/2013

    " Good, quick read of an ok thriller! Nothing new, just a typical one man save the world stuff.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 5/17/2013

    " Stays mostly true to Ludlum's Bourne series. I liked this book. It was a good follow-up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 4/21/2013

    " Lots of excitement as expected. When I got halfway through the book, I learned that the movie, recently released, didn't even follow the same plot as the book; that was the primary reason I decided to read the book in the first place. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rusty | 1/29/2013

    " I couldn't put this book down. I have read every Bourne book I could find - one after the other and became a confirmed fan of Jason Bourne, the hero. For me, this was an outstanding read. In addition, I have watched every movie about Jason Bourne. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlie | 1/10/2013

    " Eric Van Lustbader continued Jason Bourne. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ken French | 11/21/2012

    " Ludlum fans might think it's heresy, but I think Lustbader is a better writer. All due respect to Ludlum for creating such a great character and scenario, but I found his books a bit leaden. Lustbader keeps things moving at a brisk pace right from the start. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vignesh T | 8/28/2012

    " Not upto BOurne Trilogy :( "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Steve | 7/12/2012

    " Didn't bother finishing. The plot was transparent and the writing very awkward. This is the second novel I have tried of a dead author's character brought back to life by a ghost writer, and hated both. Are any worth reading? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Bray | 12/24/2011

    " Lots of suspense and action! The amount of characters and places they were was a bit overwhelming at times but definitely worth the effort. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deirdre O'Brien | 7/22/2011

    " Pretty good. Didn't like that the beginning had to somehow tell you everything that has gone on in the previous books - that seems so contrived. But the rest was good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 5/21/2011

    " I enjoyed this book. It was full of action, intrigue, and the little spy tricks of the trade that made Jason Bourne such a popular character to begin with. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joeri | 5/1/2011

    " Only read a few chapters of this very disappointing sequel to a brilliant trilogy. In the first chapter interesting characters of the original series die and the story and writing didn't seem to captivate me at all. To me this book isn't worthy of the Bourne name. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 2/26/2011

    " I really like the Bourne series. While this one was ok, I really prefer the Ludlom books. Van Lustbader's attempt was a little too long and had more details than I wanted to know. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nneka | 1/12/2011

    " Amazing. I just could not put it down. Eric Van Lustbader I duff my hat for you "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John | 1/4/2011

    " I just don't care for Lustbader's writing, can't seem to get into any of his work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arun | 12/30/2010

    " unputdownable.. khan vs bourne.. lustbader at his best "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Arthur | 12/8/2010

    " I did not like how he treated the character as just another CIA operative. I did not like that he had joined/merged the Bourne/David personalities prior to the traumatic event at the end that would have accomplished it. This new series is pale and tepid compared to the originals. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry | 10/15/2010

    " This is the first in the new series of Jason Bourne novels written by Eric Van Lustbader at the request of Rober Ludlum's estate. I very good Bourne novel for all Jason Bourne fans "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erika | 9/28/2010

    " Not as good as 1st 3, but an action packed good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauro | 9/13/2010

    " Doesn't compare to Ludlum's Bourne books, but still a nice novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley.h | 8/26/2010

    " This was my favorite out of all 8 or 7 books.. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Steve | 8/24/2010

    " Didn't bother finishing. The plot was transparent and the writing very awkward. This is the second novel I have tried of a dead author's character brought back to life by a ghost writer, and hated both. Are any worth reading? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 7/27/2010

    " * same review for series.

    Good series, I love the old school spy crap like how they have to use pay phones and faxing is all high-tech.

    Nothing like the movies don't expect them to be.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan | 7/21/2010

    " First read of the bourne series from this author, took a lil getting used to, but he followed Robert Ludlum closely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonathan | 7/14/2010

    " Well written sequel by Eric Van Lustaber to Ludlum's original Triology "
