Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Sanction

Eric Van Lustbader, Author, Jeremy Davidson, Read by , read by Jeremy Davidson. Hachette Audio $29.98 (0p) ISBN 978-1-60024-294-6

Globe-trotting secret agent Jason Bourne returns in the third installment under the helm of Lustbader, who struggles to captivate as convincingly and effectively as Ludlum did in the original novels. Amid a cheesy prologue that features corny background music to set the mood, Jeremy Davidson speeds through the opening paragraphs at breakneck speed. Perhaps in an attempt to increase tension from the start, Davidson comes off sounding incredibly forced and somewhat uncomfortable. As the story progresses, he slows down but lacks any real authenticity. His characters are flat and uninspired, his performance monotonous and bland. A Grand Central hardcover. (Aug.)
