The official Synopsis:
On the eve of Russian General Boris Karpov’s wedding, Jason Bourne receives an enigmatic message from his old friend and fellow spymaster. In Moscow, what should be a joyous occasion turns bloody and lethal. Now Bourne is the only one who can decipher Karpov’s cryptogram. He discovers that Karpov was willing to betray his Sovereign to warn Bourne of a crippling disaster about to be visited on the world. Bourne has only four days to discover the nature of the disaster and stop it.
The trail Karpov has been following leads Bourne to Cairo and the doorstep of Ivan Borz, the elusive international arms dealer infamous for hiding behind a never-ending series of false identities, a man Bourne has been hunting ever since he abducted former Treadstone director Soraya Moore and her two-year-old daughter, and brutally murdered her husband.
In war-torn Syria and then Cyprus Bourne moves ever closer to discovering the astonishing truth, and ever closer to his own death.
The clock is ticking, and Bourne has less than four days to solve Karpov’s riddle—and hunt down Borz—if he hopes to prevent a cataclysmic international war.
My Two Cents:
EVL has done a great service by extending and modernizing the Bourne series post Robert Ludlum.
Its a pleasure to read the series, however the character development needs some work as its the same characters that are playing it out against each other. Another point of contention is the fact that one-by-one all characters associated with Jason are being killed off with now new characters entering the fray.
The flow of the book is very smooth however the start is slow and the ending rather casual.
All in all a pleasant read!
