I’m pleased to be partnering with Grand Central Publishing on this. All superhero-ness is my own.
The Bourne Initiative
Gen. Boris Karpov, head of the feared Russian FSB, is dead. But Karpov has reached out from the grave with an unstoppable cyber operation he conceived in the months before his murder, aimed at the heart of the United States—a way to steal the president’s nuclear launch codes. Who has taken over the operation? Karpov trusted only one man: Jason Bourne. But can Bourne be working against his own country? Gen. Arthur MacQuerrie, chief of the Dreadnaught Section of NSA and Morgana Broussard, head of the mysterious Meme, LLC, are convinced of Bourne’s treasonous act, and will do everything in their power to kill him.
Flushed from cover, hunted by the best assassins in the business, wounded and nearly killed, Bourne’s only hope is to join forces with his bitterest enemy, a Somali magus named Keyre, whose terrorist forces Bourne once decimated. Now Keyre is more powerful than ever, with a burgeoning international network—a man who can help Bourne, but to what end? Lying in wait is the young woman Bourne saved from Keyre’s torture, who now calls herself the Angelmaker. Both seductive and deadly, the Angelmaker loves Bourne, watches over him, but from whom does she take her orders? Is she ally or adversary?
These are questions Bourne must answer before he can unravel the mystery of Boris Karpov’s last legacy, a weaponized code that may very well bring about the unthinkable: a violent end to America.
This will be Book #14 in the Jason Bourne series and is published by Grand Central Publishing.
Dad, The Action Star
Reading these books, especially The Bourne Initiative, really got me thinking. As awesome as these stories are and how great the world-saving exploits of Jason Bourne is, I have to say that I think I may be an even more amazing hero. I mean, I do it all, and I do it each and every day. There’s no hiatus between books or movies for me. There’s no rest for the weary. There’s no off switch. I’m always on, always locked in, always doing awesome dad stuff. And let me remind you, dad stuff is awesome. So awesome.
Let’s just think about what I do in my normal day. Now, remember, this is all in addition to the magic that I create on a daily basis with Guy and the Blog. Let that sink in…in addition to all of that. Oh yeah, I know. Anyway, I digress. Let me get back to business. How I’m more of an action star than Jason Bourne. Let’s just go through a few examples.
Bill vs. Bourne – The Showdown
- Jason Bourne cleans the world of evil villains bent on world destruction. I clean the sink of dirty dishes bent on stinking up the kitchen
- Jason Bourne drives sweet sports cars, private planes, and other super spy vehicles. I drive a black SUV loaded up with kids back and forth to soccer, dance, swimming, playdates, and school.
- Jason Bourne is a lethal weapon that knows how to take down an entire gang of criminals in one massive battle. I know how to put three kids down for bed each night in 30 minutes or less.
- Jason Bourne is at the absolute peak of condition a human can be in. I can do 40 push-ups…in a row.
- Jason Bourne is an expert at using the most advanced, most cutting edge and highest of hi-tech devices that only the US government even knows about. I can really work my iPhone 7 Plus like a complete champion.
Well, I think that’s enough said. Bill vs. Bourne has a clear winner…and the winner’s name is not Jason. Debatable…probably not. As you can see, it’s 5-0 right now, I’ve barely scratched the surface. Anyway, as dominant a performance as I just showed, I still love the series and the new book. I’m psyched to get into this one real soon.
