Synopsis

The worlds two deadliest spies in the ultimate showdown. At a small-town carnival two men, each mysteriously summoned by telegram, witness a bizarre killing. The telegrams are signed Jason Bourne. Only they know Bournes true identity and understand the telegram is really a message from Bournes mortal enemy, Carlos, known also as the Jackal, the world's deadliest and most elusive terrorist. And furthermore, they know that the Jackal wants: a final confrontation with Bourne. Now David Webb, professor of Oriental studies, husband, and father, must do what he hoped he would never have to do again -- assume the terrible identity of Jason Bourne. His plan is simple: to infiltrate the politically and economically Medusan group and use himself as bait to lure the cunning Jackal into a deadly trap -- a trap from which only one of them will escape.

If you are looking for the film, forget it! The two are NOTHING the same and I do not remember a single scene in the book with NYC so forget the cover! A long read, convoluted. Was ok but found just too long

The plot is so entangled with descriptions of European cities that you can hardly find it. Tedious to read.
