Not as great as the first. Still like the characters a lot, but it felt like the same thing revisited. ( )

It's good, not great. It's probably too long, all in all, and can't keep up the tension at a consistent level. Possibly would have been better to have condensed a couple of the possible endings into one almighty, cataclysmic ending.
I'd still recommend it and I look forward to reading others in the series. ( )

SUMMARY:
It all starts with a cat-and-mouse chase to the death in a Baltimore funfair: the Jackal, Bourne's age-old antagonist, is back and Bourne is forced from his idyllic retirement with his wife and children to confront his enemy.In Europe and America there are men and women whose lust for power is disguised by their positions and respectability. Their aim: to gain control at the highest level, to avenge, to destroy.Jason Bourne has been the assassin before: now he longs for peace with his family, but the threat of the Jackal puts in jeopardy all possibility of peace...

Enjoyed it overall. I would have liked to know more about what Bourne's wife was feeling etc throughout, however. ( )

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
 
At a small-town carnival, two men, each mysteriously summoned by telegram, witness a bizarre killing. The telegrams are signed “Jason Bourne.” Only they know Bourne’s true identity and understand that the telegrams are really a message from Bourne’s mortal enemy, Carlos, known also as the Jackal, the world’s deadliest and most elusive terrorist. And furthermore, they know what the Jackal wants: a final confrontation with Bourne. Now David Webb, professor of Oriental studies, husband, and father, must do what he hoped never to do again—assume the terrible identity of Jason Bourne. His plan is simple: to infiltrate the politically and economically omnipotent Medusan group and use himself as bait to lure the cunning Jackal into a deadly trap—a trap from which only one of them will escape.
