Classic Baldacci. Though the pace is not as breath-taking as some of his other books, this story is intriguing on several levels, and I have enjoyed it as much as and more than his other novels. It is Sean and Michelle again, this time in Tidewater Virginia. Plenty of adventure, some surprises along the way, and over all, just a good, fun read.
The story is extremely good. The characters are believable. It was hard to put down. The subject matter almost seems like it could even be true. It gives a scarey impression of what some people will do for what they claim is the "good of the nation or even national security".
