I have always loved this author and eagerly read anything he writes. But I truly think he has outdone himself with this book. I could not put it down. I have read many political thrillers, international intrigue and horror novels, I have never been frightened of what could be happening in our world until I read this book. When thinking of some of the things going on in the world today the premise in this book is truly horrifying. If there are truly PM firms in the United States and elsewhere, as Mr. Baldacci tells us in his Author's Note, then it shakes the foundation of everything we read on the Internet and everything we hear on the news. This book is a MUST read.

Baldacci is a master at writing page-turner thrillers. This one is no exception. The main characters are Shaw who works for a shadowy government agency and Katie James who is an alcoholic journalist. I'm hoping that Baldacci turns this book into the first of a series with these two characters.

Very disturbing because the internet today could be used to create the type of events in the book.

I'm a huge Baldacci fan, but I almost stopped reading about 100 pages in, wondering who was this writing under his name, but suddenly and somehow it grabbed me and I was once again under the spell of the master. I'm not sure what was unimpressive about those first 100 pages, but boy am I glad I persevered!! What a great story..if a little implausable physically and technically..but, that's one of the reasons we read, right? To be taken out of ourselves and the daily realism, into an alternative existence of potential reality. These two lead characters will make you want more of them by the end of the story and the action within the tale is rip-roaring and unrelenting. The use of the WWW (world wide web) to show how invasive and probing the technology is and could be is terrifying and should make us take pause. It's not far outside the realm of possibility and is probably far more advanced already than any citizen of any country realizes. Read, absorb, contemplate.

So glad I got Book 1 of Shaw and Katie Jones first....I usually manage to get books in a series backwards:( This was a good one! Baldacci takes our worst fears and turns them into page-turning novels and this one was a real adventure.
