Hold on to your seat when you read The Bourne Betrayal! It won't take you long to find out why. If you have read The Bourne Legacy, this novel picks up where that one left off.
Bourne is seeing a doctor and undergoing a new type of treatment to try and regain his memory and stop the flashbacks he is experiencing. The flashbacks started after his wife's death. It turns out that the doctor is performing a few "medical tricks" of his own. While Bourne is going through treatment, he gets bad news that his only remaining friend, Martin Lindros, has gone missing. Martin was a CI deputy director and was in Ethiopia tracking shipments of uranium and atomic bomb weaponry.
The CI enlists the help of Bourne to find Lindros. Bourne is not too keen about doing anything for the CI but knows this is something he must do. With a limited memory, Bourne sets out to find his friend.
Islamic terrorists are planning something huge. They know every move that Bourne will make and are counting on his help to destroy America. What happens to Bourne? Will he be able to stop the terrorists before they plan their next big strike?
This novel has so many things going on at the same time, the reader will feel like they are in a wind tunnel. The book is very action packed. The reader will be taken on a wild ride through many happenings like explosions, deaths and violent fights. You really don't have to read The Bourne Legacy first since this is a stand-alone book, but it might not be a bad idea to read it before or after this one. The main ingredient that makes this book a real thriller is the many betrayals that are taking place. Who do you trust? Robert Ludlum's ™ The Bourne Legacy is highly recommended.
