Book Review: Last Snow by Eric Van Lustbader

Jack McClure is back in the latest thriller from Eric Van Lustbader. In Last Snow, ATF agent McClure is now a special advisor to the newly elected president, his long-time friend Edward Carson. The president has asked him to look into the death of a U. S. senator, who was supposed to be on a political trip in the Ukraine, but has turned up dead on the island of Capri. McClure soon finds himself in the middle of a dangerous web of dirty politicians and criminals, where nothing is what it seems.

McClure must use his unique abilities to piece together the complex puzzle and discover the truth. Complicating matters is the fact that he isn't able to work alone. Joining him on this mission are the president's daughter, Alli, and Russian agent, Annika, two strong, capable women who at once add to the danger and also prove to be invaluable to McClure's success.

Last Snow is a very complex political thriller that will keep you guessing until the very last page. As in the first McClure novel, First Daughter, I found myself completely lost at times, unable to figure out who was working for whom and for what purpose. The lines between good guys and bad guys is obscure. But I knew Lustbader would pull it all together in the end, making everything crystal clear. All of the pieces of the puzzle were slowly revealed through to the last page. What a page-turner! I look forward to future books featuring the Jack McClure character.

My Rating: 4/5

  5. My favorite genre - that's a hard one, but I love being kept at the edge of my seat. I guess it would have to be mystery/suspense/thriller

    Thanks for the chance!! This looks like an awesome read.

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …
