The first of three novels about Jason Bourne, hero extraordinaire, and a man who leaves no stone unturned. Now a major motion picture starring Matt Damon.
Who is Jason Bourne? And why does he have four million dollars in a Swiss bank account? It is a good question. And one, to which, Jason doesn't know the answer. He has lost his memory, and his search to find out who he is and what he has done starts with one clue: somebody wants him dead. The more information Jason discovers, the more terrifying his quest becomes.
An amnesiac (played by Matt Damon) is rescued, near death, from the ocean by the crew of an Italian fishing boat, and finds himself being pursued by hired killers. He is completely without identity or background . . . but does possess a range of extraordinary talents in fighting, linguistics and self-defence that speak of a dangerous past. He sets out on a desperate search - assisted by the initially rebellious Marie (Franka Potente) - to discover who he really is, and why just about everyone he encounters wants him dead.
