The Bourne Legacy (Jason Bourne #4)
Here's the kicker: the story isn't bad. It isn't great, but it is a solid spy novel premise. Jason Bourne is living his life as David Webb, memory holes and all, when his life is threatened by an mysterious assassin....more
The reason I'm pointing this out is because the Bourne books that are written by Eric Van Lustbader are more in line with the movie trilogy than the original book trilogy...more
For me someone who doesn't create their own characters isn't that worthy of my time; almost like no-one praises karaoke singers when they do well at replicating someone elses work, I feel that authors who use other peoples works haven't shown the right amou...more

Of the six or seven or so women in the book, one was repeatedly referred to as a bitch-woman by her co-workers (which becomes cringe-worthy after the first dozen or so times), one was a...more
