Now David Webb, professor of Oriental studies, husband, and father, must do what he hoped never to do again assume the terrible identity of Jason Bourne. His plan is simple: to infiltrate the politically and economically omnipotent Medusan group and use himself as bait to lure the cunning Jackal into a deadly trap a trap from which only one of them will escape.
