The Bourne Legacy
By Eric Van Lustbader
Review by Carson Deel

Imagine you were on the run from the CIA, an international assassin who really hates you, and had the weight of stopping a plot to assassinate six world leaders from six countries. This is what David Webb (AKA international assassin Jason Bourne) has to go through after he barley escapes death by the assassin’s bullet and finds his two best friends dead, both CIA agents. He is framed for the murders, thus the CIA wanting his head on a platter. On the run, with nobody to turn to, he tries to find out the identity of the man that killed his two friends. In the process, he discovers a plot to kill the president of the USA, Russia, and four Arabian countries, and only he can stop it. That doesn’t seem like fun. It sounds very painful, actually.
This mystery will have you on the edge of your seat from the time the first bullet flies from the assassin Khan’s sniper rifle to the point he is captured by the man behind the murder of his two friends. I really liked this book, even though it uses very adult language (if you don’t like swearing and other adult things, this is not the book for you).
I recommend this book for people who like medium passed mysteries who don’t mind a little bit of adult language (among other adult things). If you don’t mind that kind of stuff, you will not want to put this book down.
