Baldacci's first book, published after years of being rejected (why is this so often true?), became a huge hit. A well-written, entertaining thriller, with sympathetic characters. In fact, the characters are better-realized than in his more recent works. Atypically, he frequently refers to them by their first name; in later books he uses their surname; this makes them both more professional & harder to relate to. A very enjoyable, interesting & satisfying read.
I had to read this over 3 days, what a great plot. Unlike some of his novels, the characters have more insight into what is driving them to make some of their decisions. A vey interesting way for author to critique his government by exposing flaws in the presidential system through crime fiction.
Great book! It was difficult to set the book down as the twists and turns just kept coming.
Fantastic read! Exciting plot, dynamic characters and fast paced. Highly recommend!
Excellent book. I still have a difficult time believing this was the first one by Baldacci. Very talented writer
A Great Diversion
There are some leaders who believe they are above the law and they are the most dangerous. A riveting read for a holiday.
Interesting speculation on the possible abuse of presidential power should a man with no conscience gain the office. Also develops the theme "Just Following Orders" and applies to the Secret Service.
I love this author.
