The hero you know, now rebooted for a new generation ... The Bourne Evolution offers both the familiarity of an iconic character, while simultaneously introducing an exciting, updated, rebooted model that better fits today’s publishing world. It’s been a while since Jason Bourne sat atop the thriller genre, but with Brian Freeman at the helm, he retakes his seat among the best in the business. Bottom line: Jason Bourne is back and better than ever. Do not miss this book.
The action is non-stop and makes for some breathless reading. I cannot remember having this much fun with a Jason Bourne novel. Brian Freeman was “born” to take on this series (pun definitely intended). In THE BOURNE EVOLUTION, Bourne isn't weighed down as much by the past and all the people who have done him wrong. We've already gone down that road. This Bourne is exciting and interesting, using his unique skill set for himself in a more contemporary setting without missing a step. The evolution is upon us, and I cannot wait to see what Freeman does next with this legendary character.
Novelist Freeman nails the Ludlum style in the latest Jason Bourne adventure ... The showdown between Bourne and Miss Shirley is one for the ages. Freeman’s first Jason Bourne thriller is a treat for fans of the late Robert Ludlum.
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. ... 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.
