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.

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.

This is a good reading although I do not feel it would stand alone.
It is definitely the "next chapter" in the Alli Carson & Jack McClure story.
Fast reading and exciting it leaves you with the feeling that you want to continue the story, which you can in "Beloved Enemy".

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.

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.

I started reading Eric Van Lustbader with the Bourne books that he undertook after
Robert Ludlums passing. From that I began to read his other books and have been
impressed by all of them. The Jack McClure/Ali Carson novels are action packed and
hard to put down. I look forward to the next one.

Another of Eric Van Lustbaders thrilling Jack Mc Clure/Ali Carson books. It is a thrilling and fast paced read. I have enjoyed the entire series and am now reading the last one. Makes me sad. It is a worth while book to read...

Very disjointed and extremely hard to follow, kept losing track of the relevance of each of the characters, it is almost as if the author required to reader to have read a previous edition and so already knew the characters, and even at the end the author really failed to tie everything together
