Most know Robert Ludlum from the Borne Identity & Series, I know his earlier books and have always loved his writing. Sad he is gone now as newer books just aren't the same when written by others - but will re-read the older books now!
The Bourne Identity (2002) with Matt Damon and Franka Potente. The first of the Bourne movies that got some of us hooked on them. A man is picked up by a fishing boat, bullet-riddled and without memory, then races to elude assassins and recover from amnesia. Exceptional acting and script, with lots of action and a great story.
