This sequel begins where the last novel “The Bourne Imperative” finished, Jason Bourne is still recovering from Rebeka's death.
The head of Mossad who is also Jason's friend will find out about connections between China’s Politburo and Mexican drug lord that obviously work on some joint venture, looking like much more important than drug trafficking.
Bourne will become involved in whole story, parts due to his friend asking, and partly because of a desire to avenge Rebeka.
He will be drawn into a dangerous game that except Mexicans and Chinese includes Russians, and path to the goal will lead him around the world until he will reach the end of the chase in China where from the hunter he’ll be transformed into prey…
“The Bourne Retribution” is another book in the Jason Bourne series that was written by Ludlum’s heir, Eric Lustbader.
Once again his book is a real page turner, filled with twists and turns, and with excellent turnaround at the end, perhaps the best in the series that will thrill even the long-term fans of the series.
Therefore it can be concluded that with such author the Bourne series is far from being over…
First, the book toggles back and forth between Bourne and "the rest of the world". "Events" happen in one of these modes and to create suspense, the author switches to the other mode to create an event and then switches back to resolve the first event then switch back to resolve the other. This happens so regularly that one imagines Van Lustbader writing two stories then shuffling them together like a deck of cards. The events themselves are unimaginatively CONTRIVED with descriptions as if they were directions to actors for a (bad) movie script.
Secondly, and MOST EGREGIOUSLY, Van Lustbader writes characters who go from venomously DRIVEN to cute and cuddly with the turn of a page. Their behavior begins with one "mode of being" and Bourne is their "magic talisman" to convert them.
Thirdly, just in case he's lost the reader as to the motivations of the characters, at around the 3/4 mark of the book, he has 3 of them engage in a conversation describing "how did this mess start?" At that point I knew that the answer was "Someone told Van Lustbader he was a writer" One expects to "suspend disbelief" but for THIS particular book, only a lobotomy would suffice.Read more ›
The plot is barely credible with the Mossad director leading Bourne around to execute all the convenient kills for them. At the same time, Bourne eventually teams up with the Mexican woman who begins as a tough, ruthless killer and ends up as a good little girl back in mother's arms as a result of Bourne engineering a family reunion since he knows the woman's half sister and mother (and manages to save the mother's life twice). There's also a Russian spy that Bourne befriends by regaling him with stories abut his boss.
For hard core Jason Bourne fanatics, this is fresh meat, but the Bourne franchise is wearing thin and running on fumes at this point.
