In Robert Ludlum& 8217;s ground-breaking career, no other character so captured the world& 8217;s imagination as Jason Bourne. He appeared in three of Robert Ludlum& 8217;s own 1 bestselling novels, his bestselling works to this day. Now, with the major motion picture adaptation of Ludlum& 8217;s The Bourne Supremacy, the Ludlum estate has finally acceded to the demands of readers around the world, turning to bestselling writer Eric Van Lustbader to create a brand new Jason Bourne novel, The Bourne Legacy.
Jason Bourne, international assassin of deadly repute, was an identity assumed by covert agent David Webb. Retired from the CIA and now a professor at Georgetown University, Webb& 8217;s life is finally his own& 8212;until he becomes the target of an assassin and is framed for the murder of his two closest associates. Fighting for his life against unseen assailants, the Bourne identity asserts itself, leaving Jason Bourne in control. Barely a half-step ahead of his nemesis and the CIA, who believes he has gone rogue, Bourne finds himself a pawn in a larger, far deadlier game.
Eric Van Lustbader brings one of the late Robert Ludlum's most popular characters, CIA agent/assassin Jason Bourne, out of retirement. Bourne has left the CIA and is living quietly as a Georgetown professor under his original name, David Webb. However, he is forced to assume his alter ego once again when the assassin Khan frames him for murder and pits Webb against not only Khan, but the CIA, who believe that Webb/Bourne has gone rogue.
