LAST SNOW: GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
LAST SNOW

BY ERIC VAN LUSTBADER
JUST IN CASE YOU MISSED
MY EARLIER PREVIEW AND
REVIEW, HERE IS A LITTLE....

ABOUT THE BOOK:

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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:


Eric Van Lustbader was born and raised in New York City. He is the author of numerous bestselling thrillers, including The Ninja and The Bourne Legacy. His books have been translated into over twenty languages. He lives in Manhattan and on the South Fork of Long Island with his wife, Victoria.

I wasn't aware that Eric Van Lustbader had been the one to bring the Bourne books/movies to life. I haven't read the books but loved the movies.

What I didn't like about your review: that the book had to involve a "stunning blonde" - but of course, that has nothing to do with YOU!!!!! :--) I would like the female heroines to be NOT stunning all the time!!! Otherwise, great review! :--)

Your review said it was a taut thriller. And I would not have realized it was the second book had your review not stated it. A taut thriller sounds great!

For those who read and enjoyed The First Daughter, mentioning that Last Snow is a sequel is very helpful. However, for those who have not read First Daughter, a little more information about the plot for Last Snow would be helpful.
