'Watch your back 007 - Bourne is out to get you' - Sunday TimesJason Bourne takes a mission to rescue his only friend in the CIA, Martin Lindros, who disappeared in Africa while tracking shipments of yellowcake uranium. Once safely back in America, Lindros persuades Bourne to help track the money trail of terrorists buying the nuclear material. Bourne agrees - but soon suffers from confusing flashbacks of unfamiliar places and events. Is someone brainwashing him in order to throw him off the trail? Worse still, is the man he saved really Martin Lindros? Now Bourne is on his own - gathering evidence, while trying to stay one step ahead of the terrorists who are determined to destroy the USA...
Re-enter the shadowy world of Jason Bourne, an expert assassin still plagued by the splintered nightmares of his former life.
About the Author
Robert Ludlum is a titan of the thriller genre - and the world's most read writer, selling 300 million copies in 50 countries in 32 different languages. Eric Van Lustbader is the author of numerous novels in a variety of styles, but is most widely known as the author of twenty international bestselling thrillers including The Ninja and Black Heart. Born in New York City, he currently lives in New York State.
In Lustbader's workmanlike second novel to continue the saga of Robert Ludlum's amnesiac assassin and spy (after 2004's The Bourne Legacy), Jason Bourne joins the war on terror. Troubled by visions of a woman dying in his arms, Bourne seeks psychiatric help, unaware that the doctor is an imposter who has tampered with the rogue agent's already messy and incomplete memories. That mental sabotage is part of a diabolical plan by Islamic terrorists to strike at Washington, D.C., led by Karim, a human chameleon who has fooled the CIA--and Bourne--into believing that he's actually deputy CIA director Martin Lindros. Aided by an attractive fellow agent who manages to overcome her distrust of Bourne, he races the clock to uncover the traitor within the intelligence community. Lustbader is less successful than Ludlum in dramatizing Bourne's inner torment--a feature that distinguished the character from many similar thriller heroes.

Conceived by Ludlum, crafted by van Lustbader: here's another tale featuring Jason Bourne, who rescues CIA buddy Martin from Africa and then begins having odd flashbacks. Is someone trying to brainwash him? Is the Martin he rescued the real Martin? Conveniently, you can see The Bourne Ultimatum on big screens this summer. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
