Four days ago, US senator Lloyd Berns was killed in a hit-and-run on the island of Capri. His death deals a serious blow to President Carson's precarious new administration – but more worrying is that Berns was never officially on Capri. According to the White House, Berns was on a tour of the Ukraine.
Agent Jack McClure is in Moscow, babysitting Carson's troubled daughter. But the President needs Jack to investigate the senator's final days in the Ukraine, and since Alli Carson won't be parted from her protector, he'll have to take her along.
Their starting point is the senator's last known contact: K. Rochev. But all they find at Rochev's address is the body of a young woman, brutally executed. And now Jack and Alli have attracted dangerous attention from the Ukranian police, the FSB, and the Russian mafia...
Bestseller Lustbader's wordy sequel to First Daughter takes dyslexic Jack McClure, former ATF agent and now adviser to recently elected U.S. president Edward Carson, to Moscow, where Carson is negotiating an important treaty with Russian president Yukin. When minority whip Sen. Lloyd Berns dies in a mysterious hit-and-run accident on Capri, the president asks Jack to investigate. Accompanied by Annika, a beautiful Federal Security Bureau agent who's part of a complicated Russian trap, and Alli, Carson's 22-year-old daughter whom Jack saved from a bad guy in the previous book, Jack travels to Ukraine, where Berns was supposed to be on a fact-finding tour. In Kiev, Jack finds a secret agency called Trinadtsat, a shadowy group of Russian oligarchs, and plenty of trouble, including a retired American general out to have him killed. Lustbader fritters away many pages with Jack's navel-gazing, time that could have been better spent in gunfights and derring-do.
