Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Bourne Objective (Jason Bourne)In Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Bourne Objective (Jason Bourne), Jason Bourne is chashing down mercenaries in Africa, he witnesses the death of an art dealer named Tracy Atherton. Her killing dredges up snatches of Bourne’s impaired memory, in particular the murder of a young woman on Bali who entrusted him with a strangely engraved ring—an artifact of such powerful significance that people have killed to obtain it. Now he’s determined to find the ring’s owner and purpose. But Bourne never knows what terrible acts he’ll discover he committed when he digs into the past.
The trail will lead him through layers of conspiracy to a vicious Russian mercenary, Leonid Arkadin, who was also a graduate of the Central Intelligence training program Treadstone. A covert course designed to create ruthless assassins for C.I., it was shuttered by Congress for corruption. Yet before it was dismantled, it produced Bourne and Arkadin, giving them equal skills, equal force, and equal cunning.
As Bourne’s destiny circles closer to Arkadin’s, it becomes clear that the eventual collision of these men is not of their own making. Someone else has been watching and manipulating them. Someone who wants to know, Who is the more deadly agent?
Robert Ludlum’s legendary agent Jason Bourne is the protagonist of seven novels as well as three blockbuster movies starring Matt Damon. In Eric Van Lustbader’s latest Bourne book, the rogue spy, still struggling with his fragmented memory, realizes he cannot move forward until he has exposed and confronted his own violent past.

My Thoughts-

This is the first Jason Bourne novel I have read and I cannot compare Mr. Lustbader's style of writing to Mr. Ludlums. I have seen the movies and I liked them. In listening to the novel, I found that there were to many characters and the plots were mingled. I found it hard to remember all of the characters. Scott Sowers did a good job in reading the novel. There were some good action scenes that kept me listening and I wonder what the next book in the series will bring.
