The Bourne Sanction
Are you a Jason Bourne maniac? Then be sure not to miss the latest series The Bourne Sanction by Eric Van Lustbader. Action packed thriller for the die-hard Jason Bourne fans.
This story revolves around a terrorist attack on USA; on a structure of symbolic and economical importance. The idea behind the attack; is to cripple America's economy and the morale of the people. The journey Jason Bourne takes to avoid this massive calamity has been told in a heart-thumping manner. The actions; the run and chase scenes are so fast paced; yet described in minute details.
The highlight of this novel is the character "Arkadin" who is as brilliant and as crooked up as Jason Bourne himself. The confrontation they have and the realization that each one is seeing the mirror image of the other is brilliant.
The author has once again brought about the excitement and suspense; as you read Jason Bourne's journey from Washington to Moscow and Munich in an effort to nullify the planned terrorist attack. Lots of characters in the novel; they vanish at the same speed as they arrive; fueling in new twists in the plot; and thus keeping the reader hooked to the story.
A fabulous must-read
