As he and Russian assassin Leonid Arkadin relentlessly stalk each other, Jason Bourne discovers that Arkadin is a product of Treadstone, the same secret CIA program that produced Bourne, and that Bourne's friend Frederick Willard has betrayed him.

Hachette Book Group
Facing down mercenaries in Africa, Jason Bourne witnesses the death of an art dealer named Tracy Atherton. Her killing dredges up snatches of Bourne's impaired memory, in particular the murder of a young woman on Bali who entrusted him with a strangely engraved ring­­-an artifact of such powerful significance that people have killed to obtain it. Now he's determined to find the ring's owner and purpose. But Bourne never knows what terrible acts he'll discover he committed when he digs into the past.

The trail will lead him through layers of conspiracy to a vicious Russian mercenary, Leonid Arkadin, who was also a graduate of the Central Intelligence training program Treadstone. A covert course designed to create ruthless assassins for C.I., it was shuttered by Congress for corruption. Yet before it was dismantled, it produced Bourne and Arkadin, giving them equal skills, equal force, and equal cunning.

As Bourne's destiny circles closer to Arkadin's, it becomes clear that the eventual collision of these men is not of their own making. Someone else has been watching and manipulating them. Someone who wants to know, Who is the more deadly agent?

This is the eighth book in the Bourne Saga. As typical with all Bourne novels, its very fast paced. This book ties up a lot of loose ends from previous books. It will not disappoint. It leaves you with the question, What will the future bring? More Bourne novels I hope!

I've read all of the Lulum books, and a lot of the early stuff by Lustbased, but I really couldn't get interested in this one.
