Jason Bourne is known and feared in the deadly world of covert-ops as one of the most highly skilled assassins for hire. Bourne, however, was merely an identity assumed by CIA agent David Webb, a personality implanted by the CIA to facilitate a dangerous operation. Years later, Webb is no longer an active agent; he's now a professor at Georgetown, living a quiet life. Until one day he finds himself the target of an assassin nearly as skilled as himself and is framed for the murder of his two closest associates and friends. As he fights for his life against unseen assailants, as well as the full resources of the CIA, who believe he has gone dangerously rogue, the Bourne identity reasserts itself, leaving Jason Bourne in control.

It is always a great guessing game to figure out who the 'good guys' are going to be by the end of the novel. Not great literature but still a great read.

The Bourne series was a very good read until Van Lustbader decided to make it a shoot 'em up story with no character development. In fact he killed off two of the major supporting players right away. I made it to page 109 and gave up in disgust at a very poor imitation of Ludlum's tight writing.

Van Lustbader's first Bourne book left me a little puzzled. Before reading this book i watched the 3 Bourne movies. They were action packed from start to finished. The legacy did have a lot of action but just not the Bourne movie packed action. Did the story get in the way? I'm not sure. Of all the Bourne books this one gives the reader (and Bourne) more background to his life than perhaps any other book. Well worth reading and shouldn't be skipped when reading the series.
