Beware, this novel comes to a whopping shocker of an ending. If you like espionage, action stories, thrillers, mysteries, or all of the above, Eric Van Lustbader should be at the top of your list of must-read authors.

Synopsis

The electrifying follow-up to the Jack McClure thriller First Daughter from the New York Times bestselling author of The Bourne Sanction and The Bourne Deception

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 bestselling Jason Bourne novels, Lustbader takes us on an international adventure in this powerful page-turner that will keep you reading through the night.

The necklines are low and the body count is high, fulfilling formula obligations,... and he throws in enough twists and turns (and karate chops and slippery Crimean byways) to keep things original and interesting.

In Kiev, Jack finds a secret agency called Trinadtsat...Lustbader fritters away many pages with Jack's navel-gazing, time that could have been better spent in gunfights and derring-do.

Mysterious Reviews

Good

Last Snow is a compelling sequel to First Daughter, this time incorporating international political intrigue into the fast-paced plot. (It should be noted that it isn't necessary to have read the previous book to enjoy this one.)

Reviewing the Evidence

Above average

The only problem is that there is too much going on in the story, particular in the mind of these two characters. LAST SNOW would have been a better thriller if the personal issues were toned down, or so it seems to me.

I was disappointed in his book...I found it really distracting that it jumped from character to character throughout the book, it made it hard to follow what was going on, and keep track of each person.
