    “Good Reading”

  2. 4 out of 5

    Following straight on from The Bourne Sanction this book made a lot more sense to me. More evenly paced and follows the same characters from the previous novel it was much easier to follow. I’d obviously enjoyed the previous book as another airport visit led me to pick this up and read it straight through.

    Imagine an Iranian missile (a Kowsar 3) bringing down a passenger jet over Egypt with many Americans on board, in the current context of a world anxious about the intentions of Iran. Add to that an American Secretary of Defense who is pounding the table for an attack on Iran, and a clandestine mercenary group working for all sides named Black River. As spice, Jason Bourne is in Bali with a new sweetheart only to be shot through the heart by an old colleague, and some former lovers wind their way through the novel.This is another thrilling ride. In the end, there are soliliqueys by one of the bad guys that contain strains of genuine emotional anxiety shared by many of us, which gives character to this fellow on his way. There are also endings of some of the villains, as several of the story lines remain open to be picked up in the next sequel. I am anxious to see whether Moira can survive as a Bourne girl, and whether Soraya and Amun have a future, as they all chase after Mr. Arkadin, now possessed of arms merchant information for the world.The Bourne Deception is a marvelous book, a joyful read, with plenty of emotion, romance, and thought provoking internal questioning of the selves of the characters. A high five and hearty thank you is well deserved by Mr. Lustbader.

    I haven’t read a Bourne book since the passing of Robert Ludlum. Like everyone I’ve seen the Bourne trilogy that have been made into movies. As such, I missed a few of the books in the series. That said, I enjoyed the heck out of this book. Great villians. Remarkable twist plots. And I have to admit that I like the way that there are strong female characters in this book.I recommend it for anyone that loves a good action-thriller with political overtones!

    Back to his old tricks is Mr Van Lustbader, lots of half baked developments and a twist that tips it’s hand in the first third of the book. This could certainly be a good film if some players were hidden until the high point, but as a novel it set it’s sights high whilst landing quite short. I’m a big Bourne fan so I’ll keep on with the series but my fingers are crossed that the next entry is more thought out.

    This is the fourth novel by Eric Van Lustbader continuing the saga of Jason Bourne begun by Robert Ludlum. While each was a good story, they really did not live up to the standard that Ludlum set. As this adventure begins, Jason is resting up in Bali with his new girlfriend, Moira. At the conclusion of the last book, Jason had defeated and killed his arch-enemy, Arkadin, by throwing him off of a tanker into the ocean. However, Arkadin survived. He ambushes and nearly kills Jason in Bali. Jason fakes his death and takes on a new identity and mission, to find out who is trying to assassinate him. Concurrently with Jason’s quest, over Egypt, an American passenger airliner is shot down by a missile, apparently fired by Iranian terrorists. Arkadin is involved in both plot lines along with a shadowy organization known as Black River. As Soraya Moore, director of Typhon, assembles a international team to investigate the attack, her boss, DCI Ronnie Hart, is murdered by a car bomb. When Jason’s search for his would be assassin intersects with Soraya’s search for the group behind the airplane bombing, both are thrust into a race to prevent a new world war. Will Jason finally rid himself of Arkadin or will the the plot continue into another novel? What about Black River? While not as tightly written as Ludlum’s novels, this one is worth reading.
