ROBERT LUDLUM'S THE BOURNE DECEPTION
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Thriller
Fast-paced, intense action makes the latest installment of the Jason Bourne series a compelling read. The number of characters and their interconnections create a fantastic puzzle, and the characters' personal motivations are clear and their actions are believable. (Of course, Bourne's actions push the limits of belief, but that's what makes his character so fun!) Even the bad guys have backstories that make them understandable, if not likable.
Bourne's quest for information about his elusive past leads him back to Bali, where another attempt is made on his life. Intent on finding his would-be assassin, Bourne fakes his death and begins another globe-spanning search. Meanwhile, an American passenger plane is shot down by Iranian terrorists. Bourne's mission soon crosses paths with Soraya Moore's investigation of the airline disaster. The potential for a third world war looms over them as they search for the people responsible.
