Where does Devlin's Justice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's definitely one of the audio books that I won't mind listening to again, as it's got some very interesting twists in the story that keep the listener guessing, "What next?".

What other book might you compare Devlin's Justice to, and why?

I have not listened to any other fantasy book with this sort of story line

Have you listened to any of Mirron Willis’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Mirron Willis does a great job of bringing the characters to life as usual and is amazing at switching voices from one character to another

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Just kept me guessing till the end and was happy with the outcome

Jason Bourne's nemesis, Arkadin, is still hot on his trail, and the two continue their struggle, reversing roles of hunter and hunted. When Bourne is ambushed and badly wounded, he fakes his death and goes into hiding. In safety, he takes on a new identity, and begins a mission to find out who tried to assassinate him. Jason begins to question who he really is, how much of him is tied up in the Bourne identity, and what he would become if that was suddenly taken away from him.

Jason Bourne finds out more about himself and although the story seems a little long, I was captivated right till the end.

From Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the Orange Prize-winning author of Half of a Yellow Sun, come 12 dazzling stories in which she turns her penetrating eye on the ties that bind men and women, parents and children, Nigeria and the West. Searing and profound, suffused with beauty, sorrow and longing, this collection is a resounding confirmation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's prodigious storytelling powers.

For Jason Bourne, forever caught between two identities - mild-mannered linguist David Webb and lethal super-spy - life can never be ordinary. But when his old mentor installs him as head of the comparative linguistics department at Georgetown University, it seems he may have found a measure of normalcy at last. That is, until a hitherto unknown terrorist organisation comes up with a plan to execute a major attack on the East Coast of the United States within a week.
