Two months after Jason Bourne's second wife has dies, he learns that Martin Lindros, his only friend in the CIA, went missing in Africa where he was tracking shipments of yellowcake uranium. After Bourne finds him, Martin returns to the U.S., but only after he persuades Bourne to go to Odessa to penetrate the clandestine world of terrorist money men there.
In Odessa, Bourne is hampered by confusing flashes of memories. He becomes convinced that they're false, but who planted them and why? And how can he function if he can't rely on his own memories? Eventually, Bourne figures out that the man he saved in Africa isn't his friend but a double, a terrorist intent on sending Bourne off on a wild goose chase while he himself steals U.S. intelligence and uses the information to coordinate an attack against a major U.S. city using nuclear devices.
The double, continuing to pose as Martin Lindros, orders a world-wide sanction against Bourne. Now, Bourne must fight off attempts on his life, track down uranium, and stop terrorists from launching an even more devastating attack against the U.S.

He is the author of more than twenty best-selling novels, including 'The Ninja', in which he introduced Nicholas Linnear, one of modern fiction's most loved and enduring heroes, 'Black Heart', 'Angel Eyes', 'The Kaisho', 'Floating City', 'Second Skin', and 'Dark Homecoming'. His novels have been translated into twenty languages; his books are best-sellers worldwide and are so popular whole sections of bookstores from Bangkok to Dublin are devoted to them.

He is a graduate of Columbia College, with a degree in Sociology. Before turning to writing full time, he enjoyed highly successful careers in the New York City public school system, where he holds licenses in both elementary and early childhood education, and in the music business, where he worked for Elektra Records and CBS Records, among other companies. He was the first writer in the US to write about Elton John, and to predict his success. As a consequence, he and Elton and Bernie Taupin, Elton's lyricist became friends. Writing in 'Cash Box' Magazine, he also predicted the successes of such bands as Santana, Roxy Music, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, David Bowie, and The Who, among others.

The name Jason Bourne has become synonymous with nonstop actionthanks to the novels by Ludlum and Van Lustbader and the movies starring Matt Damon. The latest in the series further pushes the tortured CIA spy to his breaking point. Jeremy Davidson conveys the mayhem that is the Bourne novel's trademark. His mastery of accents helps keep the many characters differentiated and propels the complicated plot. In this story Bourne puts aside his hatred for the CIA, which has repeatedly brainwashed and betrayed him, to rescue a fellow agent and friend. In the process, he stumbles onto a plot that could destroy America. You can just see Matt Damon saving the day. M.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
