The first of the new Jason Bourne novels. After Ludlum's original trilogy, people thought that that was the end of Bourne. In 2004, the Ludlum Estate gave Eric Van Lustbader the go ahead to continue the adventures of Jason Bourne. This is the first of those and goes about it well. It's very readable, and manages to keep the feel of its predecessors very well. When Bourne is framed for murder, the quest for the truth takes him from DC, to Paris, Budapest and Iceland. Very good, very enjoyable read. Fans of the character and fans of the genre probably won't be disappointed.
