Father Night

Book 4, Jack McClure/Alli Carson Novels - A Jack McClure Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 23, 2012 – More is less in bestseller Lustbader s fourth globe-trotting thriller to feature former national security adviser Jack McClure (after 2011 s Blood Trust). In Moscow, an assassin interrupts Jack s lovemaking session with his Russian sweetheart, Annika Batchuk. Meanwhile in Washington, D.C., Secret Service trainee Alli Carson, whom Jack once rescued from a kidnapper during her father Edward s term as U.S. president, receives a death threat in the form of a Web site featuring her face Photoshopped onto the bodies of bound nude women. In other story lines, Metro PD Capt. Alan Fraine joins a covert operation for the Department of Homeland Security, while a mysterious figure known only as the General hatches an ominous conspiracy. The far-flung plot incorporates Nazi medical experiments and hinges on multiple characters with twin siblings. Cutesy touches, such as one character advising another not to go all Jason Bourne on me, are as likely to annoy as entertain.

Customer Reviews

Really badly written

I had a hard time finishing this. Jack the super spy is a bumbling idiot constantly being caught off guard. In the real world he would have been killed over and over. He is surrounded by double agents. The bad guys have an almost infinite ability to penetrate the good guys security. Poorly plotted and poorly written. I loved his book The Ninja, every since then has been a downward spiral.


I like the writing style, the suspense, and the fast-paced drama. Looking forward to the sequel.
