The Bourne Identity (The Novel)
An ‘unidentified’ man is thrown into the waters just before a yacht blows up. He is adrift until a fishing boat rescues him. The ‘unidentified’ man claims to have amnesia from his head injuries.
This man is sent to shore by the heroic fishermen and is nursed back to health by a local ‘drunkard’ doctor. The doctor tries to assist him in finding his ‘lost’ self.
Through a series of flashbacks and mental images (and an imbedded microchip) the unidentified man comes to the knowledge that in his former life he access to 7.5 million Swiss francs, he has a connection to an agency called Treadstone, and his name is Jason Charles Bourne.
As you already know (unless you have been marooned on an island for the last twenty years), Bourne finds out that he is an assassin of sorts.
Complaint: I would have loved to have read this book in LARGE print. The type was so small, it was a chore. But I enjoyed the book!!!
