Library Journal Review
Lustbader's final novel in the Jack McClure series (after Father Night) is full of nonstop action that will leave listeners reeling. Jack's boss and good friend, the director of Homeland Security Dennis Paull, has been murdered shortly after a top-secret meeting in which Dennis tasked Jack with uncovering a mole in the government. The mole is giving information to a deadly and cynical terrorist, the Syrian. Further complicating matters, the love of Jack's life, Annika Dementieva, actually chose the Syrian and his lifestyle over Jack some years back. Jack, now the prime suspect in Dennis's murder, must go on the run around the globe to avenge the death of his friend, clear his own name, and figure out how to handle his beloved enemy Annika. Seasoned narrator Peter Berkrot expertly captures Lustbader's drama, emotion, and action. Verdict A must for thriller fans.-Sean Kennedy, Cleveland Marshall Coll. Law Lib. (c) Copyright 2014.

Booklist Review
Lustbader's latest in the Jack McClure series opens with a bang when McClure receives a call from his boss, Dennis Paull, secretary of Homeland Security. Paull believes there is a mole in the organization working for the criminal mastermind known as the Syrian. He wants McClure to uncover the traitor. McClure has a personal stake since the woman he loves betrayed him to be with the Syrian. When Paull is murdered shortly after their meeting, McClure becomes the number-one suspect. Now he has to find the mole to prove his innocence. But when he confronts Annika, his former love, will he be able to hide his true feelings? For a novel with such a great setup, nothing much happens beyond an occasional steamy sex scene or someone being shot in the head. Still, Lustbader fans will enjoy the ride, if they don't think about it too much.--Ayers, Jeff Copyright 2010 Booklist
