Realistic sound effects and an exciting musical score enhance this reading of Eric van Lustbader's fourth "Bourne" novel, the seventh novel in the series, including the three original titles by Robert Ludlum. Jason Bourne, superspy in search of his past, goes head-to-head with his evil counterpart in an international thriller involving a military independent contractor and an apparent attack by Iranians on a civilian airliner. The story, which at times is almost mystical, will entertain listeners even though it lacks the soul and refined plotting of the Ludlum trilogy. But Jeremy Davidson's reading is strong, and as said above, the music and sound effects that run throughout add to the experience. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, MaineFrom Publishers Weekly:
Lustbader resurrects Ludlum's hero in this thriller that fails to recapture the intensity of the original but still packs plenty of punches. This time around, Jason Bourne must track down his would-be assassin, but finds himself in the middle of an investigation that could trigger a new world war. Jeremy Davidson brings the novel necessary realism with a range of believable characters. His ability to capture the subtleties of numerous accents and dialects without falling into caricature is commendable. A splendid reading of an otherwise routine action thriller. A Grand Central hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 6). (June)
