Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Deception – Eric Van Lustbader

bournedeceptionJason Bourne has nearly been killed again, and he doesn’t know why.

While on vacation in Bali, with a female companion, he is shot and nearly killed.  But that isn’t to say that the people who want him dead know that.  He assumes another identity to try and find some more answers to who he is and who is out to kill him once again.

Meanwhile, in another country, and american passenger airplane is shot down and the investigators later find out that it was shot down by a Iranian missile.  Could this be an act of war?

A magnitude of characters all going at a breakneck pace to find out who and why in many different parts of the world are all working for the same goal, and at some times within an inch of their lives, sometimes more then once are on the hunt.  Will they accomplish their goal and be able to stay alive?

Will Jason find out parts of his past that are still haunting him, along with the images and feelings he is feeling to finally be able to live a somewhat normal life?

I liked this book, although this is the first one I have read.  I have seen all three of the movies that have come out, and was very impressed with the story lines and plots that were within those.  Fast paced, intricate action sequences, from page one to the end.  I found it a bit confusing with so many characters and sub plots going on with so many things happening at once, but this fast paced read would be more geared toward men and their love of guns, and machinery, and politics if they are so inclined.

  1. You should definitely read the first 3 books. While the movies are good, the books are far, far better. And don’t worry about any of the story lines being spoiled by the movies. The story lines in the books, especially #2 & #3, go in much different directions than in the movies. I haven’t read The Bourne Deception, so I don’t know how it compares to the original series, but I highly recommend the Robert Ludlum Borne books.

    • There are – Bourne Identity, Bourne Supremacy, Bourne Ultimatium, Bourne Legacy, Bourne Betrayal, Bourne Sanction AND Bourne Deception this one !
