The Bourne Evolution, Brian Freeman

The Bourne Evolution opening lines: The man in black lifted his binoculars and studied the rain-swept boardwalk. The benches that stretched along Dufferin Terrace, on the cliffside looming over the lower town and the St. Lawrence River, were empty.

The Bourne Evolution

My blurb:

Jason Bourne has moved on from the mass shooting that killed the love of his life. But moving on means going back. He is framed for the killing of a politician, and only one person really knows why. Trusting his childhood friend he plans to find out who set him up, and then take them down.

The Bourne Evolution

After the death of his wife in a mass shooting, secret agent Jason Bourne is convinced that there is more to her murder than it seems. Worse, he believes that the agency that trained him is behind the killing. Bourne goes rogue, leaving Treadstone behind and taking on a new mission to infiltrate and expose an anarchist group, Medusa.

But when a congresswoman is assassinated in New York, Bourne is framed for the crime, and he finds himself alone and on the run. In his quest to stay one step ahead of his enemies, Bourne teams up with a journalist, Abbey Laurent, to figure out who was behind the frame-up, and to learn as much as he can about the ever-growing threat of the mysterious Medusa group. As more and more enemies begin to hunt Bourne, it’s a race against the clock to discover who led him into a trap… and what their next move may be.

My verdict:

I sped through this book, reading every moment I could, as it was so good. A well written novel making me excited for the movie that will hopefully follow. I have been a huge Bourne fan since the beginning and the only let down for me about the storyline was that I had it figured out very early into the book.

  1. My mother loves these books too. Currently she is reading the latest Jack Reacher book. My mom is so cute, she always tell me the entire plot of every book she reads so I don’t have to read it myself.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
