This is my second thriller of the year, and I can say that really enjoyed it. I didn't expect the darkness of the villan to be actually scary, and when I closed the book last night (yes it was 1am) and turned out the light, I could almost feel someone breathing on my neck...I knew that was the mark of a good thriller.
This book is the story of an investigation of one girl's death, and the attempt to find the captor before her best friend, who is the first daughter also reaches her fate in the arms of a crazy-head. People's lives are at stake, the nation is at stake. The first daughter isn't perfect, no one should expect that from her. It is left up to Jack, an fault-filled man who has many regrets, among them not being close to his daughter Emma, and the second, not protecting her while he still could have.
First Daughter is an extremely well written, well thought out, captivating read by Eric Van Lustbader. He is the author of what seems to be a million great thrillers, including the super-cool, insanely fun to watch Bourne series!! He was given the okay by those in charge of the legacy of the Bourne creator Robert Ludlum, and has helped with the direction of the Bourne films and has has written the following from the Bourne series :
- The Bourne Legacy - (2004)
- The Bourne Betrayal - (2007)
- The Bourne Sanction - (2008)
- The Bourne Deception - (2009)
Like I said, Lustbader did and excellent job with this....what a great read!
I really enjoyed this, it was a blast!
