Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Bourne Objective by Eric Van Lustbader

A Jason Bourne novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author

Facing down mercenaries in Africa, Jason Bourne witnesses the death of an art dealer named Tracy Atherton. Her killing dredges up snatches of Bourne's impaired memory, in particular the murder of a young woman on Bali who entrusted him with a strangely engraved ring­­-an artifact of such powerful significance that people have killed to obtain it. Now he's determined to find the ring's owner and purpose. But Bourne never knows what terrible acts he'll discover he committed when he digs into the past.

The trail will lead him through layers of conspiracy to a vicious Russian mercenary, Leonid Arkadin, who was also a graduate of the Central Intelligence training program Treadstone. A covert course designed to create ruthless assassins for C.I., it was shuttered by Congress for corruption. Yet before it was dismantled, it produced Bourne and Arkadin, giving them equal skills, equal force, and equal cunning.

As Bourne's destiny circles closer to Arkadin's, it becomes clear that the eventual collision of these men is not of their own making. Someone else has been watching and manipulating them. Someone who wants to know, Who is the more deadly agent?

    I saw this book at the airport for $9.99. The electronic version has absolutely no printing and distribution costs, yet they are trying to soak us for $14.99. Altogether now, say "ripoff." They are thinking that since you bought an iPhone or Kindle, you must have all kinds of money to burn, and they have the matches. Sorry guys, I'm rethinking this whole thing. I think I'll go see if there's a copy at the used book store.

    While it is a decent read, the author is NOT Mr. Ludlum.

    I'm loath to take the time to write a review, however save your money - what a grind to get through. The last book I swore I wouldn't buy another, but I love the Bourne movies and enjoyed the books that spawned them... However, now it just seems like a case of the author being driven to write something just to capitalized on the past success.

    I am normally a big fan of Ludlum and everything Jason Bourne. That said, after "The Bourne Ultimatum" the series took a turn. This book goes further and further into Jason's psyche and detracts too far from Ludlum's intent. Eric Van Lastbaser is a decent writer but is pulling the character and the story line beyond the realities. While the series is fiction, this book borders on the science fiction. Tthe reader tires from Jason's constant mental battle. The book focuses more on arch villain Leonid Arkadin than Bourne. Arkadin seems to have comic book hero strength and uses silly aliases (e.g., Stanley Kowalski, Frank N. Stein) which dissipates any effort at realism, while implausible and formulaic side stories involving Soraya Moore, ousted from her position with the CIA, don't help.
