One of the great thriller authors. (Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Buried Secrets)

A master who knows how to manipulate the reader in fiendishly exciting ways. (Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Jefferson Key) --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
Father Night is not the best novel of the year, far from it. It is a series of supposedly exciting incidents that happen to characters who are either with the good guys or the bad guys, and a few who stroll between the two. Nothing happens that doesn't require some cheesy writing by the author. When I got to the page that said "Part Three" I laughed as if this novel required different parts. The story is so cloudy that I was never sure who to root for. What bothers me is that I did read a good novel written by this author, so I am confused as to why this one is so bad.

Format: Hardcover
I have read and enjoyed several of Eric Von Lustbader's books over the years, including some the the Jason Bourne series which he took up after the death of Robert Ludlum. This book, however, was difficult to read, and impossible to enjoy. There are three or four different plots, but, in the end, you are left wondering who was trying to accomplish what and why. All of the characters, good and bad, seem to have serious psychological problems. There are bodies strewn all over Washington, DC, and Europe, in large part because all of the military, para-military, and police officers involved seem to have left their body armor at home. I don't know if this is the first of a series, but there are enough loose ends to indicate that this might be true. If it is, I hope the author's future efforts are up to his past works, and not down to the level of FATHER NIGHT.

I have read nearly all Eric Van Lustbaders various series. This story is poorly written ,with a needlessly complex plot. Last 50 pages are the only satisfying part. Almost abandoned it several times.

Format: Hardcover
It's been a while since I read a Lustbader novel. This one doesn't encourage me. Maybe I might have liked this novel if I had been familiar with these characters, but I doubt it. They are really unlikeable. Aside from a few good action scenes, the novel really has very little to recommend it. The action jumps around too much and is really disjointed. Frankly, I was bored.

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the most convoluted "thrillers" I have read in the past few years. I won't go into much detail other than to suggest you not waste one minute reading this book. I unfortunately wasted a few hours before I had enough.
Good twins, bad twins, circus elephants providing escape for some of the "heroes" ....it doesn't get any stranger than this.
There are at least two or three different major stories going on throughout the book. I am usually pretty good at keeping them separate, because with most authors the venues and players stay the same within a chapter and then change when the next chapter starts. In this mess, the author decides to switch between stories a few times within each chapter during most of the book.
I found it very hard to have any continuity of plot with so many changes happening so quickly.It was like switching between two different movies every 3-5 minutes and trying to piece everything together. After a while I just didn't care about any of the characters, and was hoping they would quickly bump each other off and end my misery.
Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Daniel Silva and others have nothing to worry about !!!!
This guy is certainly no threat to them.
Highly recommend you stay away from this one.

this novel was interesting, but had too many characters weaving into and out of the plot. Good action but difficult to follow or to chart the subplots at times.

By JoAnn Teetor on September 27, 2013
Format: Mass Market Paperback
He lost me when the heroine veteran cop detective is told she has to choose between sleeping with her boss or being promoted to chief of detective. After spending the night with her boss, she tells her male detective friend and he feels sorry for her. Utterly ridiculous. If any cop on the planet let his boss do him to avoid a promotion, the other cops would first be dumbfounded and then would be ashamed of him. This plot device is so asinine and politically correct it is an insult to the intelligence of the reader.

The author should be ashamed of himself. The publisher should be ashamed of themselves. The author/reviewers who pimped themselves out lauding this drivel should be ashamed of themselves. I want my $10 back and I will never ever buy anything written by this hack again.

I am a big fan of Eric Van Lustbader's Bourne novels, but found this one hard going. Complex plots are great to get involved with when well delivered, but FATHER NIGHT was a bit too convoluted for me. It was hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys (and I know figuring out who's who is part of the fun, but not when everybody ends up being a bad guy...), and all the characters seemed to be excellent fighters and marksmen. Perhaps they'd all had incredible training at some point and I missed that part of the story.

Will I read another Jack Mcclure novel? Not sure. Might just stick with the Bourne novels.
