review: last snow by eric van lustbader

The sequel to First Daughter, which hooked me right away, Last Snow finds Jack overseas with the president and his family. When a US senator winds up dead in a location he shouldn't have been, Jack starts a new mission--one the still recovering Alli insists on coming along on. Unfortunately the wonderful dynamic that existed between Jack and Alli in the first book just isn't here. I wish there'd been more of Alli working on moving past her kidnapping/brain-washing (from First Daughter) and less of the drawn-out Russian conspiracy shoot 'em up scenes (which also meant there were far too many characters to keep track of). Actually the most interesting part was a subplot in the conspiracy involving the head of Homeland Security and his estranged family; though again, this introduced another set of characters.
