Synopses & Reviews
The man Jason Bourne fishes out of the freezing sea is near death, half-drowned and bleeding profusely from a gunshot wound. He awakens with no memory of who he is or why he was shot-and Bourne is eerily reminded of his own amnesia. Then Bourne discovers that the Mossad agent named Rebeka is so determined to find this injured man that she has gone off the grid, cut her ties to her agency, and is now being stalked by Mossad's most feared killer. Do the answers to these mysteries lie back in southeast Lebanon, in a secret encampment to which Bourne and Rebeka escaped following a firefight weeks ago?
The complex trail links to the mission given to Treadstone directors Peter Marks and Soraya Moore: find the semi-mythic terrorist assassin known as Nicodemo.
In the course of Bourne's desperate, deadly search for a secret that will alter the future of the entire world, he will experience both triumph and loss, and his life will never be the same.
Now everything turns on the amnesiac. Bourne must learn his identity and purpose before both he and Rebeka are killed. From Stockholm to Washington, D.C., from Mexico City to Beijing, the web of lies and betrayals extends into a worldwide conspiracy of monumental proportions.
"Bestseller Lustbader's busy seventh entry in the Bourne franchise (after 2011's The Bourne Dominion) takes superagent Jason Bourne to SadelÃ¶ga, Sweden, where Bourne rescues a man who's lost his memory after being shot in the head, a reminder of amnesiac Bourne's own mysterious origins. Many characters from earlier books appear, including Soraya Moore and Peter Marks, co-directors of Treadstone, a former CIA training facility, and the mysterious Mossad agent, Rebeka, last seen helicoptering a wounded Bourne out of the secret Mossad nuclear research facility, Dahr El Ahmar. A host of bad guys try to kill Bourne while hatching plots involving stealing money, nuclear secrets, and taking over the world. Newbies who want to understand the various plot lines would be advised to begin at least two or three books back. Established fans will find all the usual cliffhangers, hairbreadth escapes, and multiple betrayals they expect from this series. Agent: Henry Morrison, the Henry Morrison Agency.
