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.
