This is the first Balducci novel I have read. The story is very good, I just wish I had started a character list because I had a hard time keeping everyone straight, but, don't let that bother you.

Sidney Archer is devastated when she hears that the plane carrying her husband to Los Angeles has crashed. But her nightmare begins when she learns he'd traded identities and flown to Seattle instead. Evidence suggests that Jason Archer was selling corporate secrets to a high-tech rival. Soon Sidney herself is caught in a web of intrigue as wealthy men vie for more power and money. Fired from her law firm, pursued by hired killers eager to recover an encrypted computer disk Jason had mailed to himself, Sydney finally trusts only the FBI agent who believes her innocent. No one is immune here from high-tech snooping and violent death. Baldacci writes strictly for action, not wasting time developing characters or setting. Few books have higher heaps of dead millionaires at their conclusion.

When Baldacci "gets it right", he really does (and he does in this one!). The characters are full of life, literally jumping off the page; don't lose track though, because there are lots of them. The story is riveting and fast paced; the ending sneaks up on you. All in all, a very good, page turning read!

I liked this book. I thought it was hard to get into in the beginning. I had a difficult time keeping the characters straight to begin with. And I ended up putting the book down two or three times before I got into it. But once I got to the middle it really moved along and I thought the ending was very satisfying.
