Outstanding Book!

A perfect way to wrap up the Bourne triloge.The book has the final showdown between Jason Bourne and Carlos the Jackal. The action starts in a small town carnival moves to the Carribean,to Paris and reaches a conclusion in Moscow. Bourne becomes the target of Medusa,the American Mafia, as well as Carlos and his terrorist organization. The book has nonstop action sequences in this violent pursuit. This book is definitely in a league with Ludlum masterpieces such as the Holcroft Covenant. Buy it you will not be dissapointed.

Rock and roll!

This, the final in Ludlum's best series of books, is definately worth its weight in the food you forget to eat! Ludlum succeeds in making a character human! Jason Bourne/ David Webb is a fleshed out character with the doubts and worries that all people have! His concern for his family, his worry for them, his desire to be done with the whole assassin racket; all of these combine to give this man a believable and human motivation to finally have a showdown with his mortal enemy, the Jackal. This book takes the reader to all parts of the world and is wonderfully plotted. How does Ludlum do it? This is a taut, fast-paced, heavy breathing conclusion to Ludlum's greatest espionage victory. Read it.

Three times charmed!

I have never read 3 books in a row, that are as thick as these books are, and give them all three 5 stars, but Robert Ludlum deserves them all.In this third of the Bourne Trilogy, there is the ultimate showdown between two spies. Both of these spies are given telegrams to go to a carnival in a small town. Each of them witness a terrible murder.One of the men given a telegram in David Webb, a professor in the northeast USA. He is a husband and a father, and must now do what he wishes he'd never have to do again: become Jason Bourne, a known terrorist and assassin.The other is Carlos, known as the Jackal, who is an international assassin himself.To make sure the real baddie is trapped and brought to justice, the real goodie must make himself available to a group called the Medusans.I do not understand one reviewer's 3 stars for this book, when it deserves all 5, but I guess that's what makes the world go around. I personally think each of the Bourne trilogy got better, and I only wish the second and third were also made into movies like the first one was.

Engrsossing action story

I haven't read fiction in 15 years but recently found some of Ludlum's books. This story of Jason Bourne being pursued by the Jackal assassin is one of Ludlum's best books. As an author he creates characters and events that get you involved, then he switches locations to different incidents. It's hard to put the book down. Reading Ludlum is like riding a roller coaster through a fun house. You don't know where the next turn will be. Will it be up or down? As soon as you round the corner there's an unexpected surprise. The story is rooted in precise details that make it believable, but never boring. Ludlum is the author to study for those who think about becoming professional writers. Mick Cusimano

Incredible, a heart stopping read

The final book in the Bourne Trilogy is a deffinate A+ from what i perceive as the master of suspense and spy novels. Impossible to put down and a deffinate cover to cover read as the deadliest assassins battle to the bitter end. Congratulations on three of the finest books i have ever had the priviledge of reading.
