Jason Bourne returns to Georgetown University and the mild world of his alter ego, David Webb, hoping for normalcy. But after so many adrenaline-soaked years of risking his life, Bourne finds himself chafing under the quiet life of a linguistics professor.
Aware of his frustrations, his academic mentor, Professor Specter, asks for help investigating the murder of a former student by a previously unknown Muslim extremist sect. The young man died carrying information about the group's terrorist activities, including an immediate plan to attack the United States.
The organization, the Black Legion, and its lethal plot have also popped up on the radar of Central Intelligence, where new director Veronica Hart is struggling to assert her authority. Sensing an opportunity to take control of CI by showing Hart's incompetence, National Security Agency operatives plan to accomplish what CI never could-hunt down and kill Bourne.
In Europe, Bourne's investigation into the Black Legion turns into one of the deadliest and most tangled operations of his double life-the pursuit of the leader of a murderous terrorist group with roots in the darkest days of World War II-all while an assassin as brilliant and damaged as himself is getting closer by the minute . . .

"Robert Ludlum's celebrated Jason Bourne series is now being taken over by Eric Van Lustbader, who attempts to recapture the intensity and originality of the seminal works--without much success. Once again, Jason Bourne finds himself desperate to escape his foggy past and live a normal life, but, of course, that proves impossible when a Russian terrorist surfaces with plans to attack the United States. Read over a cheesy and unnecessary soundtrack, the new story seems outdated and stale. Jeremy Davidson narrates in a monotone voice that from time to time shifts to fits of excitement and phony-sounding intensity. Some things are better left alone, and the Jason Bourne saga is one of them. L.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
