First of all, I have to say that I have read and enjoyed all of Robert Ludlum's books, often more than once. Of them all, The Bourne Identity has to be (in my opinion) one of the best books ever written. Because I like his books so much, when the "started but only partially written, so finished off by carefully selected co-authors" books started to appear after Robert Ludlum's death, I pounced on them, expecting and hoping for more excellent entertainment.
The first two or three were OK - not just the continuing Bourne series, but also the Covert One series. You could still see the influence of the late master in the plots and storylines.
But that has to be where the compliments stop, especially for Mr Van Lustbader. He has taken what was a good story that maybe had a little bit more mileage left in it, and completely and utterly destroyed it. The basic premise for Jason Bourne's existence has been at best ignored, and at worst completely re-written (and not in a good way); the characters that Robert Ludlum created are dispensed with, often with no hint of a reference to them; new characters are arbitrarily made up to fit passages of the books, then just as arbitrarily removed; the plots are so insanely convoluted as to be completely unbelievable, never mind virtually incomprehensible; the timelines and references to the original "Bourne Identity" make no sense; and in a seemingly desperate attempt to "keep the action moving", Van Lustbader's Jason Bourne finds himself in an almost perpetual cycle of increasingly perilous situations, each one resulting in the most unlikely of near death experiences followed by a miraculous escape.

"The Bourne Retribution" by Eric Van Lustbader is another sequel full of exciting adventures that were experienced by secret agent who has lost his memory, the book character that was originally created by Robert Ludlum.

This sequel begins where the last novel "The Bourne Imperative" finished, Jason Bourne is still recovering from Rebeka's death.
The head of Mossad who is also Jason's friend will find out about connections between China's Politburo and Mexican drug lord that obviously work on some joint venture, looking like much more important than drug trafficking.

Bourne will become involved in whole story, parts due to his friend asking, and partly because of a desire to avenge Rebeka.
He will be drawn into a dangerous game that except Mexicans and Chinese includes Russians, and path to the goal will lead him around the world until he will reach the end of the chase in China where from the hunter he'll be transformed into prey...

"The Bourne Retribution" is another book in the Jason Bourne series that was written by Ludlum's heir, Eric Lustbader.
Once again his book is a real page turner, filled with twists and turns, and with excellent turnaround at the end, perhaps the best in the series that will thrill even the long-term fans of the series.

Therefore it can be concluded that with such author the Bourne series is far from being over...

Another tale of using Bourne unwittingly, well written, following on well in the series, but maybe I'm just getting too old for this, so should Jason Bourne, he was older than I was when the series started so brilliantly by Robert Ludlum.
It was good for someone to continue the series, but now I'm getting bored, but it still deserves the 4 stars for being well written and in keeping with the characters, although without wishing to spoil anyone"s read, the resurrection at the end of a previous character is a bit hard to swallow.
Maybe time for Jason Bourne to retire?
