The Bourne Deception by Eric Van Lustbader
I absolutely love the Jason Bourne character. I read all of the Ludlum Bourne novels and have been reading the continuation Bourne novels by Lustbader. I like Lustbader and have been a big fan for years.
But I'm going to bitch about this one. (See previous posts [ I, Sniper and Nothing to Lose] reference to me being grouchy lately.) While I like the wild ride most Bourne novels provide, is it too much to ask for a little character development arc? It seems to me that with each new book Jason Bourne becomes a bit more of a cardboard movie poster.
