Next Jason Bourne Book Unveiled

Author Eric Van Lustbader just published The Bourne Imperative, and told us about the next book in the Jason Bourne series started by the late Robert Ludlum. Bourne Retribution will be published next year, and Lustbader shared the plot (SPOILERS AHEAD):

If  you’ve read Imperative, you’ll know that someone who Bourne really cares for, a Mossad agent named Rebeka, is murdered. At the end of the novel, Bourne’s gone to Israel to attend her funeral and he’s really burned out. The new book deals with him coming out of that kind of death spiral and wreaking vengeance on the people who killed her.

Lustbader has written seven books in the Bourne series. He also shared his original outline and first draft Bourne Dominion (out in paperback now). Follow this link to view them.
