I remember 2 summers ago I read the first 3 books - I just could not get enough. I was hoping to feel the same about this one but not even close. This is writing a book knowing suckers like me won't be able to resist because they miss Jason so much and want to catch up with an old friend.

I was hoping for the intrigue and clever plot from past Bourne adventures, but Jason Bourne has reverted to a comic book style character in very familiar story lines. Jason is still the lethal, lone-wolf super spy. He is fluent in a multitude of unusual languages and has countless expert skills that would take a dozen lifetimes to acquire. He withstands relentless near death beatings, from which he is able to recover with minor medical care and and an enourmous effort of will. Jason must contend with an evil and clever foe, double agents, an intelligence comunity that does not appreciate his talents, and a government bogged down in inertia. Jason must save the United States from calamity using only his boundless ingenuity and the help of a very few and clever friends, but the clock is ticking ... While I do not want to give away the plot, this reminded me of the old James Bond novels and movies. I know this is a common plot, but I had hoped for something more original.
