American author Robert Ludlum authored twenty-seven novels between 1971 and 2066, including 14 novels in the Jason Bourne series. The first novel in the Bourne Trilogy, The Bourne Identity introduces Jason Bourne, a man who finds himself with both remarkable survival skills and retrograde amnesia. In the search to rediscover his true identity, Bourne must also reason out why several shadowy groups, a professional assassin, and the CIA want him dead. Peter Cannon of Publishers Weekly named The Bourne Identity among the best spy novels of all time, after John le Carré's The Spy Who Came in from the Cold. The novel was adapted into a film of the same name starring Matt Damon, Franka Potente and Chris Cooper.
