Review

The Bourne Legacy

by Eric Van Lustbader



The marketplace speaks. Robert Ludlum's most popular character was
arguably Jason Bourne, the deadly CIA agent with the fragmented
identity. All three of the Bourne novels --- THE BOURNE IDENTITY,
THE BOURNE SUPREMACY and THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM --- were among
Ludlum's most popular, and have achieved a new spike in popularity
thanks to the film adaptation of THE BOURNE IDENTITY. In an effort
to give the people --- and, yes, probably the film studios --- what
they want, the Ludlum estate has commissioned Eric Van Lustbader to
create a new Bourne novel. The result is a good, though not
perfect, fit that should please fans both old and new.
