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.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cindy | 2/10/2014

    " I read all of the old Van Lustbader books and the recent stuff he's putting out is torture. The book has so many unlikely coincidences that it was impossible to take it seriously. The fact that the characters could think that no one would be able to track them through airport security is ridiculously naive. I read over 100 pages and couldn't take it any more. "

    " I had a hard time with the Russian words and keeping up with who was who but the book turned out excellent and it all fell together. This author is intriguing. I like political thrillers and this book was that plus an international thriller. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gwen | 7/9/2013

    " There were too many Russian names that I couldnt pronounce and political stuff that wasn't interesting. If you can get past that, maybe you can find out what happens to the main characters. I didn't finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lance | 5/29/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 6/30/2011

    " This was a pretty good book that I did finish. The main characters conversations with his deceased daughter were a little odd, and that was the only odd think about the book. At the end of the book, some secrets were revealed, which is not may favorite move. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Phaedra221 | 5/31/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marc | 3/11/2011

    " interested me enough to read the next book in the series. only thing that annoyed me was that lustbader kept referring to a special ability of jack mcclure but didn't really touch on it enough. still, it was a good read for me...kept me busy from the flight back from mardi gras :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathryn | 3/1/2011

    " I'm almost done, but I think I'm throwing in the towel. What a lame book. I could care less what happens. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 1/23/2011

    " I only gave it 3 stars because I'm not an espionage fan. Don't really know why I picked it up..... I think Lustbader was thinking "screenplay" instead of novel. Would be a great screenplay.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry | 10/19/2010

    " With the exception of the language, I thought this was one of Van Lustbader's best books. Kept my interest throughout with a couple of major twists at the end. Recommend to anyone who likes political intrigue--US vs. US and US vs. Russia "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lilly-Anne | 10/8/2010

    " Complex intrigue, action packed, with fascinating science and technology added for intellectual stimulation. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Judy | 9/23/2010

    " I was tempted to abandon this book after about 60 pages. But I kept at it until I finished it. Wish I had gone with my first impression. The focus of the book seems somehow irrelevant to the overall background of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vannessagrace | 7/4/2010

    " The Last Snow isn’t your typical spy novel because it actually follows today’s politics quite closely. Reading it reminds me of what’s going on today with the current two political parties. Last Snow gives you pause to think about truth and untruths and what politics is really about. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julia | 7/2/2010

    " Not as good as Ludlam,I liked First Daughter, but this one was lacking. "
