Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

New from Eric Van Lustbader, the author of "The Bourne Legacy" and "The Bourne Betrayal," comes "Father Night," the thrilling fourth installment in the "New York Times" bestselling Jack McClure series.
A tidal wave of reform is sweeping across the Middle East. Many lurk in the shadows, eager to seize power--giants of a vast criminal underworld, fueled by revenge and vengeance. Their wars know no end. Their power knows no bounds.
At the center of it all are two men who are inches away from holding the world in their hands: one is known as Dyadya Gourdjiev and the other is known only as the Syrian.
Department of Defense special agent Jack McClure has followed this trail of shadows and lies right into the arms of Gourdjiev's alluring, powerful granddaughter, Annika Dementiev. The lovers are in Moscow when news of Dyadya's failing health draws a slew of vultures--circling, anxious to seize the empire of secrets he spent a lifetime building. Jack and Annika find themselves locked in battle to ensure his safety...but when it comes to Dyadya, nothing is as it seems.
Alli Carson, the child of a dead US president, has become Jack's surrogate daughter. While Jack is in Russia, Alli is targeted by a cyber-stalker who knows more about her than anyone should. With no one to trust but her friend, Vera Bard, Alli is determined to discover the truth, but her path forces her to come face-to-face with the nightmarish terror of her past.
As these two stories play out, Secretary of Defense Dennis Paull, with the help of detectives Nona Hendryx and Alan Frain, follows a trail of lies, corruption, and secret pacts that begins with Washington D.C.'s Head of Detectives.
All paths collide at the feet of one man, an old legend adapting to an ever-changing landscape... a man history might have forsaken, but whose heinous evil is still very much alive: Father Night.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2012-09-14)

Nature abhors a vacuum. Lustbader's (Blood Trust) fourth Jack McClure thriller opens with the Middle East's Arab Spring in full bloom. When one power topples, who or what will replace it? Shadowy key players like the Syrian, Father Night, and a Russian named Dadya Gourdiev all play a part in this elaborate chess match, with each vying to be the winner. Alli Carson, the former president's daughter, finds herself a tormented pawn by someone who intimately knows details of her past kidnapping. However, the real target is Jack, who cannot resist stepping in to protect Alli, his dead daughter's lover. The Department of Defense special agent will find his task exceedingly difficult because some devils may never die.

Verdict: Lustbader expertly spins multiple story lines that tie together neatly in this fast-paced, plot-driven tale of political suspense and international intrigue. Pages will fly as fans of Jason Bourne thrillers and such authors as David Baldacci, Vince Flynn, and Daniel Silva race to the exciting conclusion.

Book description

New from Eric Van Lustbader, the author of The Bourne Legacy and The Bourne Betrayal, comes Father Night, the thrilling fourth installment in the New York Times bestselling Jack McClure series.

A tidal wave of reform is sweeping across the Middle East. Many lurk in the shadows, eager to seize power--giants of a vast criminal underworld, fueled by revenge and vengeance. Their wars know no end. Their power knows no bounds.

At the center of it all are two men who are inches away from holding the world in their hands: one is known as Dyadya Gourdjiev and the other is known only as the Syrian.

Department of Defense special agent Jack McClure has followed this trail of shadows and lies right into the arms of Gourdjiev’s alluring, powerful granddaughter, Annika Dementiev. The lovers are in Moscow when news of Dyadya’s failing health draws a slew of vultures--circling, anxious to seize the empire of secrets he spent a lifetime building. Jack and Annika find themselves locked in battle to ensure his safety…but when it comes to Dyadya, nothing is as it seems.

Alli Carson, the child of a dead US president, has become Jack’s surrogate daughter. While Jack is in Russia, Alli is targeted by a cyber-stalker who knows more about her than anyone should. With no one to trust but her friend, Vera Bard, Alli is determined to discover the truth, but her path forces her to come face-to-face with the nightmarish terror of her past.

As these two stories play out, Secretary of Defense Dennis Paull, with the help of detectives Nona Hendryx and Alan Frain, follows a trail of lies, corruption, and secret pacts that begins with Washington D.C.’s Head of Detectives.

All paths collide at the feet of one man, an old legend adapting to an ever-changing landscape… a man history might have forsaken, but whose heinous evil is still very much alive: Father Night.
