Ludlum and Me

So I got a package in the mail from Random House yesterday. It turned out to be an author’s copy of the large print edition of my new Jason Bourne novel, THE BOURNE TREACHERY.

It’s great to see that large print editions are still around. They’re a little more rare these days, because many people who want larger font sizes have turned to e-books. But a lot of readers still love to have that physical book in their hands — and that’s great.

Of course, what really struck me was the back cover. There were two photographs side by side — mine and Robert Ludlum’s. I’ve been tackling Jason Bourne for a couple of years now, but even so, I never fail to get a little shiver up my spine when I see me and Ludlum on the same book cover. He was one of my favorite authors growing up, and Marcia can attest that the latest Ludlum novel was always on my Christmas list.

Now, all these years later, it’s an amazing thrill to be carrying on his legacy. If you’d told me when I was reading THE BOURNE IDENTITY in 1980 that I’d be writing Jason Bourne novels forty years later, I would have thought you were crazy. But here we are. Enjoy the new Bourne book!

I Spy

I Spy…a bestseller!

This is the latest Bookscan bestseller list — and a big thanks to Becky at the Barnes & Noble Maple Grove for sharing it with me. Great to see my latest Jason Bourne novel THE BOURNE TREACHERY jumping on to the hardcover bestseller list.

Have you re-discovered the new Bourne yet? Now is the time!

What is the Ursulina?

The mythical beast goes by many names. Bigfoot. Sasquatch. Yeti.

In Black Wolf County, he’s called…the Ursulina.

But to Deputy Rebecca Colder, it’s no myth. A killer is hiding behind the legend of the monster…and people are dying.

THE URSULINA. Available now exclusively from Audible. Print and e-book editions coming on February 1.

Jason Bourne Returns

THE BOURNE TREACHERY arrives in stores on July 27!

This is my second Jason Bourne novel, following on the heels of last year’s THE BOURNE EVOLUTION (which was named one of the top thrillers of 2020 by Kirkus Reviews).

Get signed copies from great indie bookstores like Once Upon a Crime, Poisoned Pen, and Murder by the Book. And join me for one of my upcoming virtual events to go behind the scenes on my work bringing Jason Bourne back to life for a new generation.

THE URSULINA is Here

“I found myself wondering where the beast was, and what it really was, and why it hadn’t killed me.

Somehow I knew, I already knew even as a girl, that we would meet again.”

THE URSULINA is real. And it’s available today, exclusively from Audible, with amazing narration by January LaVoy.

This book works hand-in-glove with my earlier novel (and Edgar Award finalist) THE DEEP, DEEP SNOW — although perhaps not in ways that you’re expecting. Like that book, it’s a gripping, emotional mystery, and also one of my personal favorites among my books. In fact, I have to say I’m prouder of this two-book set than just about anything I’ve done. I hope you enjoy the shocking twists and turns — and the moving climax — as Deputy Rebecca Colder tells you her story.

THE URSULINA

You’ve been waiting almost two years for the follow-up novel to my Edgar Award finalist and New York Times bestseller THE DEEP, DEEP SNOW. That book was a huge hit, with more than 20,000 reviews on Audible for the audio edition, narrated by the amazing January LaVoy.  Well, the new novel is almost here. THE URSULINA will be released on June 24, exclusively from Audible. And January is back to do the narration. (For all of you print and e-book fans, don’t worry: Blackstone will be releasing those editions in 2022.)

You may recall the story of the Ursulina from the first book…it’s a mythical beast that stalks the forests, much like Bigfoot or Sasquatch. But to Deputy Rebecca Colder of Black Wolf County, it’s no myth. And people are dying. This book takes us on Rebecca’s dark journey to reveal the truth about the Ursulina…a journey that will lead her to the most excruciating choice a mother can make.

Here’s what January LaVoy said about the experience of narrating this new book: “When we finished recording this audiobook, there was a moment of silence, and then my engineer said, kind of reverently, ‘Wow.’ I said, ‘I know!!’ Not to imply that we’re jaded – we’re not – but we record a *lot* of books together, and the impact of this one was different.”

I hope you feel the same way about this book. It’s available for pre-order right now from Audible or Amazon. If you’re not an Audible member, you can try it for free — and when you do, you’ll be able to order and keep THE URSULINA at no charge. (And don’t forget to listen to THE DEEP, DEEP SNOW, too.)
