The Bourne Deception
Read an Excerpt
After Jason Bourne is ambushed and nearly killed during a retreat on the island of Bali, he fakes his own death and takes on a new identity and mission-to find his assassin.
Across the globe, an American passenger airliner is shot down over Egypt by an Iranian missile, leaving the world to wonder if it was an accident or an act of aggression. As global outrage builds over the event, a joint-international team led by Soraya Moore, a director at Central Intelligence, is assembled to investigate the attack before the situation can escalate into more violence.
When Bourne's hunt for revenge intersects with Soraya's search for the perpetrators of the airplane disaster, Bourne is thrust into a race to prevent a new world war. But it may already be too late…
