Severus Domna, a secret and ancient cabal, has called forth its members from around the globe, with one objective: to vanquish the last person capable of destroying their bid to de-stabilize the world economy - Jason Bourne. The Bourne Dominion may be the ninth book in the series, but it was the only one that the store on the Ferry back from France had, and none of the other books that were on offer really grabbed my attention. However, the bad news for them is that the one person happens to be Bourne, who, as fans of the series will know, is pretty hard to take down. The stakes are naturally incredibly high and the espionage and intruige is pulled off well, pitted against a fascinating web of conspiracy that keeps unfolding as the plot develops. The book may take a while to get going, throwing in too many characters too early, but if you can put that aside, The Bourne Dominion will be worth the effort as the payoff in the third act is a lot stronger than what come before.
