Washington, London and Peking - terror sweeps the globe. The Vice-Premier of the People's Republic has been brutally murdered by a legendary assassin and everyone is asking the same fearful questions: Why has Bourne come back? Who is paying him? Who is next on his death list? But US officials know the shocking truth: there is no Jason Bourne. There never was. But someone has resurrected the name, and if he is not stopped, the world will pay a devastating price. Jason Bourne must live again. He must utilise his murderous skills. But this time the will to survive is not enough. This time Bourne must reign supreme...

"Book or film?"
Like any books that are imortalised on the silver screen, people always feel strongly about whether they preferred the book or the film. I, however, enjoyed both. As long as you don't expect the book to mirror the film (or vice versa) you will enjoy the experience. The Bourne books, as with all of the Bond books, do not resemble the films.That being said the book was very enjoyable and full of action. It is well read with the narrator managing to convey the menace and vulnerability of all the different characters. The audio book is also very long, which made it excellent value for my "credit" and as I listen to my audio books whilst in bed, lasted me many nights. If you enjoy Robert Ludlum, action-adventure and complex character plots, this is the book for you.
