### Review

"An intricate plot and cnning twists" (_DAILY RECORD, 23 October_ )

### Product Description

Jason Bourne has gradually come to realise who and what he really is - a strange amalgam of a man named David Webb, and a deadly killer. Now David Webb is living a peaceful life as a university professor in the backwoods of America with his wife and children. But someone is reaching out to take him out of the game for ever. A deadly assassin is on his trail and his former handler has been brutally murdered already. It seems that David Webb must once again turn to Bourne to save his life and family.

Once again Eric Van Lustbadar has brought a tale of Jason Bourne, a trained CIA assassin, who has turned his back on the CIA for trying to kill him. His other identity, David Webb, is a professor at a local college. His double identity makes this book shine. One identity is a laidback, happy-go-lucky personality while the other is fierce and determined to reach his goal.

A Chechen assassin named Khan is after Bourne, on an assignment to kill him. He takes his first shot through a window in an empty classroom at the college where David Webb teaches. When he shoots the bullet at Webb, the Jason Bourne identity kicks in. He dodges the bullet and moves into a crowd of people. This is when the identity of the merciless Jason Bourne takes over completely. He is now determined to find whoever tried to kill him. This journey takes him to his friend, Alexander Conklin, whom he finds dead, and he’s accused of killing him. He runs away from the oncoming police, leading him to a stream where his second run-in with Khan takes place. Khan appears to be an enemy who is determined to carry out his assignment, but then Bourne learns a secret that would change his life forever.

I had a great time reading this book, tearing through every page. Jason Bourne’s double identity keeps the book interesting and blood-pumping. Eric Van Lustbadar is a true genius for creating such a widely known series. I have read every book before this and have seen all of the movies. I loved every second of the experience of reading this book. If I were to rate this book, I would give this 5 out of 5 stars. The dramatic chase scenes and the romantic moments give this book the perfect balance that truly shows what a great book this is. I would recommend to anyone who likes to take a challenge in the reading world to pick up this book. The reason why I say to take a challenge is that the vocabulary is very advanced in this book. But, don’t worry, the great story line makes up for most of that.

An adventure from start to finish, fast , furious, twist and turns. So many countries, so many people, no one can be trusted. Viscious and violent. (Book 4 in series but written by another author. Different feel but very engrossing! beware... creeped out by the dental chair scene.) ( )

JASON BOURNE

Whilst not quite on a par with Robert Ludlum's original Bourne stories this is definitely good fun and worth a read. Bourne is being pursued on two fronts. On the one-hand by the CIA and the other by a mysterious assassin known only as Khan. Can he save the world and reveal the identity of the mystery man before being arrested or killed himself? Of course he can!! Whilst lacking orginality and also being about 100 pages to long I would certainly recommend it as an easy read to fans of the genre. ( )

Nijedan lik nije toliko raspalio maštu čitalaca koliko je to uradio lik pisca Roberta Ladlama, Džejson Born. Erik Lustbader, svetski poznat bestseler pisac i jedan od najpopularnijih pisaca na svetu napisao je na sreću svojih fanova roman baš o Džejsonu Bornu pod naslovom Bornovo zaveštanje.

Once, Jason Bourne was notorious in the clandestine world of covert-ops as one of the CIA's most expert international killers for hire. Out of the ashes of his violent past he's emerged today as a Georgetown professor, living a quiet life, retired from danger-until he narrowly escapes the bullet of a faceless assassin. And when two of Bourne's closest associates are murdered, Bourne knows that his legacy has followed him-and set him up as prime suspect for the brutal crimes.

The quicksand of lies and betrayals is deeper than Bourne ever imagined. Hunted by the CIA as a dangerous rogue agent, he has only one option to stay alive-and one last chance to stay one step ahead of an unseen assailant whose vengeance is personal. Pursued across the globe, Bourne's on the run, and on the edge of discovering the truth-that he's become the expendable pawn in an international terrorist plot. One that's taking every living witness with it and plunging Bourne one step closer to the world-shattering consequences of...

"Jason Bourne is known and feared in the deadly world of covert-ops as one of the most highly skilled assassins for hire. Bourne, however, was merely an identity assumed by CIA agent David Webb, a personality implanted by the CIA to facilitate a dangerous operation, but one that threatened to subsume David Webb entirely. Years after the events of The Bourne Identity, Webb is no longer an active CIA agent and is now a professor of Eastern Studies at Georgetown University, living a quiet life, far from the dangers of his previous life. Until one day he finds himself the target of an assassin nearly as skilled as himself and is framed for the brutal murder of his two closest associates and friends. As he fights for his life against unseen assailants, as well as the full resources of the CIA, who believe he has gone dangerously rogue, the Bourne identity asserts itself, leaving Jason Bourne in control. Now Bourne must use all his skills to stay alive as he battles against a determined assassin, the combined skills of the world's intelligence networks, and a shadowy figure in the background, skillfully manipulating events and people, in a far deadlier and more dangerous game than any of them realize."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
