BOOK REVIEW: ROBERT LUDLUM'S (TM)
As soon as I see the names of Robert Ludlum and Eric Van Lustbader, I know the book will take me on an exciting adventure. The Bourne Sanction is no exception.
Jason Bourne, also known as David Webb, is back working at Georgetown University as a professor. Is this the life he really wants? Jason has had so many things happen to him in his lifetime and to come to a life of calmness is just the opposite. His two children are living with his wife’s parents on a ranch in Canada. His wife, Marie, was kidnapped and he was forced to do something he really did not want to do.
Moira approached Jason and told him that NextGen Energy Solutions has completed their new liquid natural gas terminal. The first shipment was due to arrive in two weeks and she wanted him to head the security procedures. Their biggest fear is that this would be a good place for a terriorist attack.
Professor Specter also knows that Jason is not happy being a professor so he asks for help investigating the murder of a former student by a Muslim extremist sect. The young man had some very valuable information on him when he died. The information consisted of information about the group’s activities as well as a plan to attack the United States. The organization is known as the Black Legion.
Veronica Hart is the new director of Central Intelligence. She is having difficulty asserting her authority and in a meeting with the President, General Kendall and Luther Lavelle, Veronica soon found out she was being undermined. The National Security now felt it could take over the CI by showing Hart was incompetent. They had a special way to do this – by finding Jason Bourne and killing him.
Bourne, in the meantime, is in Europe conducting the investigation into the Black Legion. This turns out to be one of the most dangerous missions in his career.
Will Jason Bourne survive or will the National Security Agency find him first and carry out their plan?
The Bourne Sanction is a novel that will keep you in suspense as you are taken on the journey through Europe as Jason Bourne conducts his investigation. As with the other Robert Ludlum/Eric Van Lustbader books, there is plenty of excitement that keeps this book moving at a whilwind pace. The reader won’t know what to expect next as they go through the twists and obstacles of this book. This is a book you must read. Eric Van Lustbader is a master at writing thrillers.
