The Bourne Retribution by Eric Van Lustbader is another excellent Jason Bourne novel. He has done a good job continuing the Robert Ludlum series about Jason Bourne.

The story picks up after the last novel when Bourne lost a woman he had come to love in Mexico. Bourne is recovering in Israel under the protection of the Mossad. The story is about the daughter of Maceo Encaracion returns to Mexico City to take over her fathers many businesses including his involvement in drug trafficking. She has been in China where she is married to a Minister in the Chinese government who is maneuvering to climb higher within the government and eventually lead China. The Minister, Jidan Ouyang, has a back story in Bourne's history with Mossad and his lover who died in Mexico City at the hands of Maceo Encarcion. Bourne is being guided and assisted in avenging the death of his lover and is after retribution with those involved.

The story is like the other Bourne novels in that he seems to accomplish his mission with much loss of life and blood. The story is like the others in that is a well told thriller that keeps you intrigued and guessing at what is going to happen next. And usually you are wrong about the direction of the story. The story jumps from Israel, to Mexico City, to China and back many times. ( )

Criss-crossing cities, countries and continents – from the Middle East to Mexico, and to China, The Bourne Retribution continues the saga of one of the most popular and compelling characters in modern fiction. Eric Van Lustbader masterfully writes a tale of loss, betrayal and vengeance in this latest Bourne novel.

In The Bourne Retribution, the story begins a month after Rebeka’s funeral and Jason Bourne is still mourning her death. Rebeka’s death throbbed like an internal wound that refused to heal. When the director of Mossad, Eli Yadin, asks him to investigate the rumor of Ouyang Jidan, a senior member of China’s Politburo, and Mexico’s drug cartel trafficking something deadlier than drugs, he finds the opportunity to fulfill a brutal vendetta: to kill the man who ordered the killing of Rebeka.

Bourne is assigned to work alongside Eden Mazar, Mossad’s anti-terrorist specialist, and Carlos Danda Carlos, the newly appointed chief of Mexico’s anti-drug enforcement agency. A fearless reformer, Carlos is determined to free his country from the death grip of the deeply entrenched corruption and the powerful drug cartels. It was at his specific request that Mossad steps in.

But when Eden Mazar and two of his bodyguards were killed in Las Penas in a deceitful betrayal by Carlos, a wounded Bourne realizes that he is treading on treacherous ground. It also forces him to have a relook at his life, and how he can always fall back on resuming his professorship at Georgetown University where he teaches comparative linguistics. But he cannot let Rebeka’s death go unavenged. Shaking off the blackness he spring back to life, to work as it was meant to, and finish his unaccomplished mission. Bourne also has to contend with the deadly Maricruz Encarnacion who is out to unite the drug cartels. She is equally determined to avenge the death of his father and brother at the hands of Bourne.

Brace yourself for the ultimate showdown in this Jason Bourne thriller with a deeply personal touch as Bourne seeks to avenge the death of Rebeka, his love. The Bourne Retribution is an explosive story that will take you inside the walls of China, the conspiracy theaters of the Mexican drug cartels and into a world of intrigue with Mossad. If you love the earlier Bourne novels, this one is not to be missed! ( )
