In his third Bourne novel, Eric Van Lustbader serves up another romping action-adventure bestseller in THE BOURNE SANCTION. Jason Bourne, after having fought relentlessly to rediscover his initial identity, David Webb, is now laboring mildly under that name as a Georgetown professor. But his subject, linguistics, leaves him bored and antsy after so many years of break-neck chases and shoot-outs. Realizing this, one of Bourne's fellow academics elicits his aid in the investigation of a Georgetown student's death, which is connected with a burgeoning terrorist sect called the Black Legion. The case leads Bourne to Europe, where he tracks the elusive leader of the group. Meanwhile, back on U.S. ground, Central Intelligence and the National Security Agency are warring for supremacy, with NSA attempting to undermine CI by accomplishing the seemingly impossible: assassinating Bourne. This shot of adrenaline is sure to keep fans of Robert Ludlum's Bourne series highly entertained.
