"The Simple Truth" was my second Baldacci book and I wasn't disappointed...

John Fiske is estranged from his brother Michael, who is a clerk for the Supreme Court. But when Michael is murdered, John decides to take a break from his defense attorney life and re-visit his cop days to help out in the investigation. The key piece of evidence is a missing appeal that Michael took from the mail room but never logged into the system. It was filed by one Rufus Harms, a black soldier who has been in prison for a quarter century for murdering a little girl. The appeal must contain something that others wish to have buried, because everyone who touches the appeal becomes a target... even John Fiske.

The story is structured in a way that you know the appeal must be personally damaging to many high-powered individuals, but you really don't know the what or why until close to the end. For a 500+ page novel, I was surprised Baldacci could keep the plot line moving enough to prevent me from putting the book down. A good read.

Another excellent read by Baldacci. As far as I am concerned, this author is the king of suspense. "The simple truth" is a page turner that will give you short nights of sleep until you finish it. You better plan the read for a weekend if you value getting to work on time.

Pretty good book. It had a very surprising ending; a twist on who is the bad guys and who is the good guys.

Another good novel by Baldacci. Has you guessing at who was involved in the original crime of 20 years ago.
