Here’s the description of Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Treachery.
The world’s most ruthlessly efficient assassin, Jason Bourne, is facing the one force he can’t defeat—his own past—in the latest thrilling entry in Robert Ludlum’s New York Times bestselling series.
Three years ago, Jason Bourne embarked on a mission in Estonia with his partner and lover, a fiery Treadstone agent code-named Nova. Their job was to rescue a Russian double agent who’d been smuggled out of St. Petersburg in the midst of an FSB manhunt.
They failed. The Russian died at the hands of a shadowy assassin known only by the nickname Lennon.
Now everything has changed for Bourne. Nova is gone, killed in a mass shooting in Las Vegas. Bourne is a lone operative, working in the shadows for Treadstone, when he’s called in for a new mission in London—to prevent another assassination masterminded by Lennon.
But nothing about this mission is what it seems. As Bourne engages in a cat-and-mouse game with Lennon across the British countryside, he discovers that everything he thought he knew about the past was a lie. And with the body count rising, he comes to an inevitable conclusion: Some secrets should stay buried.
