The brilliance of Mr. Baldacci is that no matter how "far out" his characters are, they're always so doggone believable. That's truly a scary thought, isn't it? The situation created in this novel could easily show up on the front page of tomorrows' newspaper or Katie Courics' evening, network report. We all know that there are loads of conspiracy theorists "out there". Well, Mr. Baldacci seems to realize that even if you are paranoid - they still might be out to get you! The gentlemen of "the club" (and now one lady, also) are people you and I might meet somewhere in our very ordinary lives. Keep your eyes open - you just never know! This novel kept me enthralled from the very first sentence - I really wish I could know these guys. Watchdogs and heros all! I'm looking forward to a sequel because I'm not ready to turn away from my new um....novel...friends!

It was difficult for me to get into the book for the first half of it. Too many characters for me to keep track of and I almost stopped reading it but was glad I didn't! Turned out to be a lot more interesting with a great ending!

I started this book and didn't immediately get 'into' it. After about 50 pages, I was starting to get discouraged because it seemed kind of slow, and not typical of Baldacci (who had become one of my favorite authors). So I came here to PBS and read some of the reviews. And am I glad I did! In their reviews, many people stated that the book has a slow start - there are so many different characters to 'meet', etc. The reviews all went on to say that their patience paid off big time, and I couldn't agree more. Once the 'introductions' are out of the way, the book takes off at breakneck speed and it's impossible to put it down. Baldacci is a great storyteller, and like the others, I guarantee that you won't be sorry that you persevered through the first few chapters.

Slow to start, but once in, you cannot put it down. Seems to have more detail than necessary in certain areas.

This book was so well written with it's multitude of characters with each of them having their own very distinct characteristics. The story caught me right from the beginning and had me turning pages right up to the very end. What a wonderful reading experience.
