I loved this book. Once I started reading it, it was hard to put down. I read on the train into the city and some mornings, I stayed on the train longer just to finish a chapter. The story really should be a movie. And, a hint, the ending leads to a sequel, I'm sure. The characters seem so real and authentic, I could only imagine what they would look like in a movie. Baldacci usually makes you be able to feel the "human-ness" of the characters but somehow I could see every image in this book and really connected with the characters. Can't wait for the next one.
This was a great book until you got about 100 pages to the end. Most of the "mystery" was solved it was all about execution at that time. It really went slowly for me at that point. Overall I enjoyed the book, I can't see a third given this ending but who knows. If it came out, I would read it.
