Publisher's Summary

The electrifying follow-up to the New York Times best-selling Jack McClure thriller First Daughter.

Jack McClure, Special Advisor and closest friend to the new President of the United States, interprets the world very differently from the rest of us. It’s his greatest liability, and his greatest asset.

An American senator, supposedly on a political trip to the Ukraine, turns up dead on the island of Capri. When the President asks him to find out how and why, Jack sets out from Moscow across Eastern Europe, following a perilous trail of diplomats, criminals, and corrupt politicians. Thrust into the midst of a global jigsaw puzzle, Jack’s unique dyslexic mind allows him to put together the pieces that others can’t even see. Still unreconciled to the recent death of his daughter and the dissolution of his marriage, Jack takes on a personal mission along with his official one: keeping safe from harm his two unlikely, unexpected, and incompatible companions—Annika Dementieva, a rogue Russian FSB agent, and Alli Carson, the President’s daughter. As he struggles to keep both young women safe and unearth the answers he seeks, hunted by everyone from the Russian mafia to the Ukrainian police to his own NSA, Jack learns just how far up the American and Russian political ladders corruption and treachery has reached.

In the vein of Eric Van Lustbader’s latest best-selling Jason Bourne novels, Lustbader takes us on an international adventure in this powerful page-turner that will keep you reading through the night.

Take another thrill ride with Jack McClure.

Better than the First a great Thriller

Eric Van Lustbader's send book in the Jack McClure series is a step up from his first book The Last Daughter. This thriller takes place in Russia as Jack accompanies the President travels to Moscow. Jack is the Presidents closest ally and confidant. Jack makes a split second decision to get involved with defending a Russian Woman and is drawn into what could become an international incident.

When the President's Daugter is left in his custody he must protect her while solving a mystery before the President signs a new agreement with Russia.

It is a mile a minute thrill ride and Richard Ferrone does an amazing job with the characters in this series. As an advid audiophile I appreciate a narrator who stays with a series from book to book. This is a great book to listen to and I am excited to start the next book in this series.

I bought this book for my own pleasure and provide this Honest Review for my readers.

Disappointing

A big disappointment by this author. Boring, plodding, psychobabble dealing with uninteresting characters mostly with unpronounceable Russian names.

Awful

The narration is, at best, marginal. The story is terrible. The first review has it right. It is one of the very few books I gave up on half way through.
