About book The Bourne Deception (2009)

This is the fourth novel by Eric Van Lustbader continuing the saga of Jason Bourne begun by Robert Ludlum. While each was a good story, they really did not live up to the standard that Ludlum set. As this adventure begins, Jason is resting up in Bali with his new girlfriend, Moira. At the conclusion of the last book, Jason had defeated and killed his arch-enemy, Arkadin, by throwing him off of a tanker into the ocean. However, Arkadin survived. He ambushes and nearly kills Jason in Bali. Jason fakes his death and takes on a new identity and mission, to find out who is trying to assassinate him. Concurrently with Jason's quest, over Egypt, an American passenger airliner is shot down by a missile, apparently fired by Iranian terrorists. Arkadin is involved in both plot lines along with a shadowy organization known as Black River. As Soraya Moore, director of Typhon, assembles a international team to investigate the attack, her boss, DCI Ronnie Hart, is murdered by a car bomb. When Jason's search for his would be assassin intersects with Soraya's search for the group behind the airplane bombing, both are thrust into a race to prevent a new world war. Will Jason finally rid himself of Arkadin or will the the plot continue into another novel? What about Black River? While not as tightly written as Ludlum's novels, this one is worth reading. SUMMARY:Jason Bourne's nemesis Arkadin is still hot on his trail and the two continue their struggle, reversing roles of hunter and hunted. When Bourne is ambushed and badly wounded, he fakes his death and goes into hiding. In safety, he takes on a new identity, and begins a mission to find out who tried to assassinate him. Jason begins to question who he really is, how much of him is tied up in the Bourne identity, and what he would become if that was suddenly taken away from him. Meanwhile, an American passenger airliner is shot down over Egypt by what seems to be an Iranian missile. A massive global investigative team is assembled to get at the truth of the situation before it can escalate into an international scandal. Jason Bourne's search for the man who shot him intersects with the search for the people that brought down the airliner, leading Bourne into one of the most deadly and challenging situations he has ever encountered. With the threat of a new world war brewing, Bourne finds himself in a race against time to uncover the truth and find the person behind his assault, all the while being stalked by his unknown nemesis.
