Robert Ludlums The Treadstone Resurrection is the exciting and promising opening instalment in a brand new series in which a whole original set of all-action, edge-of-your-seat thrillers take place within the renowned Bourne universe and introduce a hero and possible icon of the genre's future, CIA operative Adam Hayes. This death-defying saga ensues after Adam receives a rather desperate and somewhat enigmatic email from close friend and fellow Treadstone operative, Nick Ford. Before long he is ...more

Jason Bourne wears a skirt.

Forget drug induced assassins, Ludlums Bourne over the years was as Tryptophan sleepy as a great uncle after Thanksgiving dinner. While the character and concept remained fantastic, it needed a dramatic new facelift and some chops. Dozens of thriller and espionage authors would have fought in a cage match for the opportunity, but Josh Hood emerged victorious, and thank god he did. But the key was in not handing him Bourne, but in giving him the white space of the

Thanks to, the author Joshua Hood and G.P. Putnam's Sons for the advance review ARC for my honest review.

It was the late author Bill Crider, with his 'Outrage at Blanco' novel that made me love revenge stories so much and in away revenge stories for me will always be a tribute to him.

This was my first read from author Joshua Hood. Although I must confess that I have both of his Search and Destroy series books buried on my TBR read list, most definitely will be reading them and

I anxiouly looked forward to this story, hoping I would not be disappointed. I was not disappointed. Mr. Hood has created a Hold-on-Tight action adventure that careens through the pages. This is NOT a Bourne book. However, repeated references to the Treadstone 71 group keep the back story of The Bourne Identity always in your mind. The weapons are upgraded. The personnel are different, but the jobs remain the same.
For all fans of The Bourne Identity, this work is a very enjoyable read. It is

Treadstone has created some finely tuned military men including Jason Bourne from the past but now it's all Adam!
The top secret CIA Black Op program was one of the finest in the land but Operation Treadstone nearly ruined him.
The civilian life became elusive and he desperately sought its return.
So he became a cabinet maker and settled in a rural location until the emails arrived from a former colleague and shortly thereafter the crap hit the fan as the 'hit' upon him was imminent.
Why can't he

This is a novel set in the Jason Bourne universe created by Robert Ludlum. As a fan of these books I wasnt sure if Id enjoy The Treadstone Resurrection, but I neednt have worried in the slightest.

This is an all out, action packed thriller.

CIA operative, Adam Hayes receives an email from an old friend with a warning. Then with events at his workplace, it soon becomes clear someone is out to kill him.

This obviously puts paid to his quiet life as he searches to find out who wants him dead and

*I voluntarily reviewed this book from the Publisher.

Action-packed and full of energy from the very first page, THE TREADSTONE RESURRECTION by Joshua Hood does exactly what it says on the cover and I can't wait for more.

Adam Hayes lost so much to Treadstone but he is slowly trying to find his way back to a semblance of a normal life. It's hard but it will be worth it if he can get his family back. But when an old friend sends him an email, everything is turned on its head, and Adam is being

All Killer. No Filler.

I have never read any of the original Robert Ludlum series of Jason Bourne stories, however from my experience and observations of having watched the Bourne series of films many times, I am prompted to say that Adam Hayes, one of the new generation of re-awakened Treadstone operatives, operates at a whole new level of recklessness and ruthlessness.

I have also since discovered, that Treadstone aired as an Amazon Prime series last year, so I guess that this book is just the

Explosive and fun. Its not written for the literary awards. I have statyed away from the earlier Ludlum novels as I didnt think anything could compare. Definitely not as good but still a fun easy read. The author really knows how to write action scenes. I guess the plotting is the weakness

A ride to hell and back

Joshua Hood delivers fantastic action (even surpassing the Bourne movies!) and an intriguing, twisted conspiracy plot worthy of Ludlum. Well done, Chief!

Having not followed the Bourne series and in depth as I have others, this was a fresh take on a storyline and battle that I absolutely loved. Joshua Hood is a decorated veteran who has the know with all and experience of stressful combat. He also knows how to write one hell of a book!!! This Bourne legacy thriller is a great read from start to finish with plenty of battles, misdirection, and more importantly, awesome writing. As the author of Clear By Fire and Warning Order, Hood hits this one ...more

The Treadstone Resurrection by Joshua Hood

What if you had worked for Uncle Sam for years, been a lethal human weapon and finally decided to return to normal live to spend time with your family? What if the life you had lead in the military had made it difficult to be as you once were but you were doing everything in your power to return to a simpler more loving life with wife and son and then one day it all fell apart and every skill you had put behind you was suddenly required again?

Since I had never read a single Jason Bourne book or seen the movies, this book was did not have a Ludlum hangover. I enjoyed the book for the pure thrill of the main character and his action as written by the author Joshua Hood.

Treadstone destroyed Adam, lost him his family and nearly his sanity. So he left it all behind until a message from his buddy made him come back to the forefront using all his old skills to get to the bottom of it. A great good VS evil theme.

Welp. I read that in one sitting...

Welcome back Treadstone. I just started watching the new TV series. (Also quite awesome, and bingeable).

Adam Hayes wanted out of Treadstone. He got married. Had a kid. Figured he was done with it all. The nightmares from the war, from his missions, got the better of him. His temper was short-fused. His wife couldn't take much more. Taking their son, she left him.

Trying to make amends, Adam planned on visiting with his family. The problem was another plan was

The Treadstone Resurrection is the first in the Treadstone series, which is going to be one heck of a series, if this one is anything to go on. The release coincides with the return of the Treadstone (tv) series on Amazon (January 2020 in the UK) and also with the 40th anniversary of the first Bourne book. I cant believe it has already been four decades!

Its fair to say that Operation Treadstone has left more than a mark on Adam Hayes it has destroyed any semblance of a normal life he once

So, short form round up - Our hero Adam Hayes is an ex Treadstone operative who got out when it robbed him of any chance at a normal life. Soon after he recieves an email from an ex-colleague Hayes is attacked by a 'team' at his place of work and must retrieve all his old skills to find out who and why. He may be 'out' of Treadstone but is anyone ever 'out out)?

So, no Jason Bourne here but a new character instead (although cut from much of the same cloth). No amnesia for Hayes and enough of a

The Treadstone Resurrection by author and former Air Division fighter JoshuaHood, is a rip-roaring Special Ops political thriller that encompasses everything weve come to love about the Treadsone series: hand-to-hand combat, nail-biting fight scenes, masterfully executed spy-craft and a hero who only gets better when shoved into a corner!

Terrific action packed novel

There are certainly hints of the world Ludlum created but this also has the author's voice. The character is not invisible but it's not someone you want to mess with. I'm hoping for more in this universe.

Good premise and character, ruined by sloppy writing and editing

I got this book expecting much, especially since the author is an Army veteran. I got little. The only reason I gave it 2 stars was because of the great premise of the book and the main character, otherwise in all honesty I would have given it 1 star. Please, either tighten this shot group or never let this author write another book continuing what Ludlum built. I honestly don't have much good to say. I will say I liked main

I'm almost embarrassed to put this on here, not particularly proud of the fact that I read (or partially read) this book.

This was a big DNF for me. I understand that this author writes from his position of experience. I read for enjoyment. I did not enjoy the portions of this book I read - I made it to nearly the halfway point so I gave it a good try. But....

This book was brutal. The graphic violence was deeply disturbing to me. The constant incessant foul language felt like an assault.

The original Bourne series is quite a legacy to follow but Robert Ludlum has woken Threadstone from its hibernation and a new and exciting chapter has begun in style. Adam Hayes had built himself a new life after Treadstone but something from his past was not done with him yet. An email from a former colleague followed by an attack from a pretty specialised team give Adam no choice but to retaliate but it has been a while since he needed to use his special talents. If he is to find out why this ...more

This was an action packed book!! Not normally my go to genre, but I really enjoyed reading this book!! I cannot wait to read the next book! I couldn't believe that you could fit that much action and excitement into one story, but Joshua Hood did that here. I would recommend this book to young adults and older, only because there is some very graphic kill scenes that could be too much for the younger audience. Loved this book!!

Good solid book to read. Fast pace read. Not much different then the original books but you can see the military side that Joshua can bring. Interested in seeing how more stories go.

When I saw this book first time, my heart leapt with joy as the shadowy organization called Treadstone has been a part of my life ever since I read The Bourne Identity way back in college days. I think Treadstone was my first exposure to the world of Black Ops. So naturally, anything to do with Treadstone 71 would ALWAYS have me lining up for it. So The Treadstone Resurrection is the first in the Treadstone series that is being resurrected by Joshua Hood.

Before I start, I must say that anyone

Robert Ludlum is the author who made definite my personal interests in espionage thrillers. His novel, THE MATARESE CIRCLE was an impulse purchase and read. It was over 500 pages and I was hooked within the first 50 pages. So, I was sorry to hear of his passing while Jason Bourne became a huge character of popular interest in the cinema later. Mr Ludlum would have been very pleased.
Now Joshua Hood has been granted the reins and brought out his reanimation novel THE TREADSTONE RESSURRECTION with
3.5 Stars rounded UP

I dont know if this is Bourne-like (Bourne being more of solo operator through and through), but THE TREADSTONE RESURRECTION is one hell of a ride! It was back to back edge-of-the-seat clashes from start to finish, I felt for the lead character who barely had chance to come up for air!

THE TREADSTONE RESURRECTION is my first Joshua Hoods read and I really enjoyed it. The first entry to a new Treadstone series, this book follow Adam Hayes evading murderous bad guys trying to

If adrenaline-pumping, dark political, techno-thrillers are your thing, and they are certainly mine, this one is for you. Set in the 'Treadstone' ethos, created by Robert Ludlum, with his iconic Jason Bourne character, the story has new characters, twenty-first-century issues, but the same addictive resonating characters and plot. From the fast-paced, poignant beginning, you know you're hooked and the short, snappy chapters draw you in, wanting to know 'what next?', 'who's doing this?' 'Will the ...more
