Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Bourne Objective (Jason Bourne)

Here's mine from Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Bourne Objective (Jason Bourne) by Eric Van Lustbader.  It's a book that I've just started. It's a fun suspense thriller - fun reading!
The blurb:
Jason Bourne, rogue American operative.  Leonid Arkadin, Russian mercenary. Both are leading graduates of the brutal, covert Central Intelligence training program Treadstone, giving them equal skills, equal cunning -- and equal force.

 After Arkadin trapped and attempted to murder him, Bourne is turning the tables on his nemesis.  Hunter will be hunted. 

But revenge brings great psychological devastation.  Has this conflict with Arkadin become too personal for Bourne?  Will this mission be Bourne's destruction?

Here's my Friday 56:
Yes, indeed.  Berber.  "And you had a laptop that was stolen."

"That's right."

Moira was sitting with her right shoulder against the door. She felt abruptly chilled; the interior now seemed suffocatingly small, as if the man's presence had spilled out of his body, invading and darkening the backseat, stealing over her, worming its way inside.


  1. I enjoyed the movie of the first book but just couldn't see myself getting into a book like this.

  2. Well, with what Moira said, he sounds "creepy"! Yes, a good suspense thriller! Thanks for stopping by... always good to hear from you on the East Coast! :)

  3. Interesting pick. Waiting on your review for the book.

  4. I've been thinking about reading these since I never got around to watching the movies.
