A celebration of reading! 

Read each selection & join staffer Wendy Wise for a spirited discussion!  

Espionage, thrillers, and spy novels.

Intrigue, deception, and exotic locales. 

High speed chases, unknown identities, and dark alleys.

All the makings of a suspenseful read – sure to give you chills to beat the July heat!

Ian Fleming, Tom Clancy, and Stieg Larsson – all masters in the field of spy fiction. Robert Ludlum published his first novel, The Scarlatti Inheritance, in 1971 at age 42. Writing was a third career for him after serving in World War II and working as a theater actor and producer.  He claimed that the harsh reviews of his theatrical works, prepared him for the critics of his writing. However, his “commonplace and vulgar style” and “lack of literary values” served him well, with more that 200 million copies of his books in print, making him a wealthy man. 

Clearly readers don’t always take the advice of critics.

James Bond, Jack Ryan, Lisbeth Salander – all characters with unknown histories and damaged lives. Jason Bourne is a man without a past and a man without the memory of who or what he is. Thanks to the bullet holes in his own body, he knows that someone wants to kill him, but only slowly comes to realize that he, too, is an assassin working for a shadowy government agency. 

Check for available copies of the book or audiobook The Bourne Identity by Robert Ludlum at the Circulation Desk or through our catalog. It is also available through Digital Downloads in EPUB and Kindle eBook formats and as an MP3 eAudiobook download.
