Reenter the shadowy world of Jason Bourne, an expert assassin still plagued by the splintered nightmares of his former life. This time the stakes are higher than ever. For someone else has taken on the Bourne identity—a ruthless killer who must be stopped or the world will pay a devastating price. To succeed, the real Jason Bourne must maneuver through the dangerous labyrinth of international espionage—an exotic world filled with CIA plots, turncoat agents, and ever-shifting alliances—all the while hoping to find the truth behind his haunted memories and the answers to his own fragmented past. This time there are two Bournes—and one must die.

An excellent book, I think I still like the second and third books better, this takes place eight years after the Bourne Identity and sees Bourne being tricked into a government plot in Hong Kong. Very good, a bit long, but well worth the read.

I liked this book a lot better than the first one. It was longer than the first one but it involved less planning and fewer locations, so I was able to actually understand more of it. But the italics were actually REALLY annoying in this book, almost every time someone talks he italicizes something. And the ending where it should have ended was like 100 pages from the end of the book so I kept wondering what was going to happen after, and every time I thought it was the ending, I was further and further disappointed. There were three, if not four, times I thought I was at the ending but I wasn't. The summary on the back of the book makes you think the focus of the book is about the assassin double but it's about something more convoluted and extremely anti-climatic.
