I'd heard good things about David Baldacci. What a good action/suspense writer he is. And I was enjoying this book right up until the author started withholding information from the reader. When the character makes a discovery that obviously takes him a large step closer to solving the mystery, but the author decides to withhold that information from the reader, I cry foul. This is an artificial way to increase the tension. The author needs to play fair.

Since a number of critics who generally like Baldacci didn't like this story and say that it doesn't play to the author's strengths, I will probably try one of his other novels, but if he cheats in that one, I'll be done with him.
