Robert Ludlum’s the Bourne Dominion

Eric Van Lustbader, read by Jeremy Davidson. Hachette Audio, abridged, five CDs, 6 hrs., $29.98 ISBN 978-1-60941-208-1

The latest installment in the Jason Bourne series finds the amnesiac superspy on a mission to prevent terrorists from bringing America to its knees via destruction of the country’s vital natural resources—all while he tries to reconcile his mysterious past and avoid assassination by Russian agents. Having narrated several previous Bourne thrillers, Jeremy Davidson is something of an old hand at clearly conveying the books’ dizzying twists and turns. His narration is imbued with a confidence indicative of familiarity with both plot and characters. He is particularly adept with accents, producing everything from silky Latino voices for Bourne’s friends and enemies in Colombia and Spain to a guttural Russian dialect for Gen. Boris Karpov. Series fans will no doubt enjoy this new chapter of the Bourne story, but newcomers may want to first listen to previous audiobooks in the series to get up to speed. A Grand Central hardcover. (July)
