Author Eric Van Lustbader seems to have successfully captured the magic of Robert Ludlum’s Jason Bourne series with The Bourne Legacy. David Webb (Jason Bourne’s real name) has seemed to settle in to a quaint life as a college professor until an attempt on his life setting off a series of events that has him hunting and hunted by “friends” and enemies alike. The trail leads him to Europe where he discovers a fiendish plot by terrorists to do bad things, really bad things (I don’t want to give up too much information).
I love to find a book that grabs me, pulls me in, and almost forces me by the story to keep reading long after my eyes have said to stop. The Borne Legacy is one of those books. Read it at the risk of your eyesight or don’t start until you have an open weekend…though if you are like me it won’t take that long to read.
