Description

Jason Bourne is faced with an impossible mission. He has been hired to impersonate a high-level government minister at a political summit meeting in Qatar, shielding the minister from any assassination attempts. Suddenly, armed gunmen storm the room, killing everyone but Bourne. Their target, however, isn't the minister Bourne impersonates....it is Bourne himself.

I am a Jason Bourne fan. I've seen all his motion pictures yet I've never read a Bourne novel before now. I will not read another. I found the language and sexual forays bordering on pornography. I'm not sure why 'high priced' authors like Van Lustbader find it necessary to do that.

Another good book in the Jason Bourne series by Eric Van Lustbader. The story is another well crafted, twisting story where Bourne is being blackmailed by a terrorist to carry out an attack. The basic plot line is about a Mideast summit between the Palestinians, the Israelis, and the US to broker a peace deal. The terrorists want to stop it and at the same time the right wing hawks in the US want to stop it because they might see less military spending.

If you have liked any of the previous Bourne books you will want to read this one. If you need a good thriller to read on your vacation, I don't think you will be disappointed in selecting this book.
