Publisher's Summary

It was once said that you must trust and believe in people or life becomes impossible....
Alli Carson has been through her own personal hell. With her father, the president of the United States, recently dead and her mother in a coma from a terrible accident, she has poured herself into her training to become one of the best FBI agents at the Fearington Institute. Her inspiration and solace comes from the one man with whom she has ever felt a kinship, National Security Adviser, Jack McClure. But when Alli becomes the prime suspect in a murder at Fearington, a wide-ranging investigation is triggered, involving local homicide detectives, the secret service, the FBI itself, and Alli’s own uncle, the billionaire lobbyist Henry Carson. And yet nothing is what it seems.
What follows is a treacherous journey that leads Jack and Alli into a complex web of lies and deceit. Using Jack’s unique gifts to see the through the labyrinth of manipulation, their investigation leads them into the dark heart of the international slave trade, tied to a powerful Albanian crime lord whose ability and influence in global terrorism grows with each day. The two find themselves in the crosshairs of vast global enterprise, one that lurks in the shadows of power and has infiltrated Washington and their lives in ways neither of them could ever have imagined. And hidden deep among it all sits a terrifying criminal mastermind, someone fueled by a hatred that can never be quenched, and a mind that knows neither feeling nor mercy.
Take another thrill ride with Jack McClure.

Good Beginning, Rough Middle Bad End.

Too many characters, too many sub plots the latter part of the book was muddled and the ending was not believable. Looks like a sequal will follow.

An Excellent Complex Thriller

This book is both well-written and narrated. If you enjoy fast-paced fiction thrillers that follow current issues, this book should be well worth your purchase. Jack McClure is both a likable and a believable main character - and the supporting characters (good and bad) complement an interesting complex plot. If I had a minor criticism, I think the narrator might think about a better way to transition the fast paced parallel events that make up the story. These transitions probably would not a problem reading the book - but occasionally caused me to rewind while listening.

Since I thoroughly enjoyed Blood Trust - my first Jack McClure book - I plan to read Van Lustbader's earlier McClure books.
