Jonathan Freedland, didn't choose his pseudonym at random (his books will be next to Brown's in most book stores). I complained about the uneven pace and incredible story (an incredible story is not bad in itself, but when an apparently regular mystery novel turns supernatural towards the end it demands too much suspension of disbelief (some authors can make the fantastic seem plausible but Bourne couldn't)). Anyway, to get to "The Last Testament", the book seems _somewhat_ more believable than "The Righteous Men". Even so, it still doesn't seem plausible and thus never really got me hooked. It kept me reading but I never really cared very much about what happened. It may have been better as a movie than as a novel.
