Summary
America's most enduring hero, Jason Bourne, returns in a propulsive, fresh story for the Bourne canon that tests old skills--and uncovers new ones.

After the death of his lover in a mass shooting, secret agent Jason Bourne is convinced that there is more to her murder than it seems. Worse, he believes that Treadstone--the agency that made him who he is, 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, hunted by both Treadstone and the tech cabal that had hired him. 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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Freeman, a veteran author of psychological thrillers, turns in a solid performance in this new novel featuring Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne. This time out, Bourne is determined to unmask the killers of the woman he loved; the fact that the killers might be connected to Treadstone, the shadowy agency that (literally) created Bourne, is certainly an inconvenience, but readers who know Bourne will know that he won't let loyalties or his own past stand in his way. The writing is energetic, the story is well conceived and executed, and let's talk about suspense. While sticking broadly to the format established by the earlier Bourne novels, Freeman works a number of subtle variations, doing a very nice job of keeping us constantly guessing what's going to happen next. He keeps Bourne very much on his toes, and he breathes new life into a series that was--let's be honest--starting to feel a bit stale."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This assured contribution to the Jason Bourne franchise from Thriller Award--winner Freeman (Thief River Falls) opens with a 2019 newspaper account of a sniper shooting in Las Vegas, Nev., that killed dozens a year earlier, but it's the 2020 assassination in New York City of Congresswoman Sofia Ortiz, as recounted through a series of live tweets, that triggers the main action. Bourne, identified in a tweet only as "an ex-government operative gone rogue," is accused of killing Ortiz, who was scheduled to speak about a massive data hack and to introduce a new law to curb the excesses of big tech. Bourne once again finds himself on the run, "in the crosshairs of every intelligence agent on the planet." The action races from sunny Nassau to the rainy Highlands of Scotland, where Bourne faces perhaps his most dangerous foe yet, the evil Medusa agent known as Miss Shirley. Freeman has a firm grasp of Bourne's tangled background, plus the skills to keep the action front and center. Bourne fans will hope for an encore from this talented author. Agent: Sloan Harris, ICM.
