Bourne Identity (Bourne Trilogy No.1), The

Robert Ludlum
Jason Bourne. He has no past. And he may have no future. His memory is blank. He only knows that he was flushed out of the Mediterranean Sea, his body riddled with bullets. There are a few clues. A frame of microfilm surgically implanted beneath the flesh of his hip. Evidence that plastic surgery has altered his face. Strange things that he says in his delirium -- maybe code words. Initial: "J.B." And a number on the film negative that leads to a Swiss bank account, a fortune of four million dollars, and, at last, a name: Jason Bourne. But now he is marked for death, caught in a maddening puzzle, racing for survival through the deep layers of his buried past into a bizarre world of murderous conspirators -- led by Carlos, the world's most dangerous assassin. And no one can help Jason Bourne but the woman who once wanted to escape him.

I had to look at the front cover to make sure I had the right book. The story in the book is different than the movie. I loved the movies, I really like this book, though it was difficult because the character of Jason Bourne in the movie is much more machine-like and sure of himself than the book's Jason Bourne. If you like other Robert Ludlum books, you will like this one.
