In a heavily guarded mansion in a posh Virginia suburb, a man and a woman start to make love, trapping a burglar behind a secret wall. Then the passion turns deadly, and the witness is running into the night - because what he has just seen is a brutal slaying involving the president of the United States.
Luther Whitney is the career break-in artist who's in the wrong place at the wrong time. Alan Richmond is the charming U.S. president with the power to commit any crime. And Jack Graham is the young attorney caught in a vortex between absolute truth and... ABSOLUTE POWER.

Keeps you on the edge
This is an amazing book, I couldn't stop listening. The reason I picked this book was because of Scott Brick being the narrator and he did a superb job as usual, can't imagine anyone else doing a better job. This book kept me on the edge of my seat, so much so I had to turn it off acouple of times to calm myself down and get ready for some more. Thanks to both David and Scott for making a amazing story.

The best David Baldacci novel ever!
I do not make that claim lightly. I love Baldacci's King & Maxwell series, the Camel Club series, The John Puller series, the Will Robie series (my favorite Baldacci series), the A. Shaw series, the Cahills vs, Vespers series, and his stand alone novels. I own audio or printed copies copies of every book Baldacci has written. Absolute Power was released in hardcover early in 1996 and in audiobook format early in 2010. I listened to the audiobook in February 2010 and again recently.
Absolute Power is simply a thriller not to be missed. Like several of Baldaccis early audiobooks, Absolute Power is narrated by Scott Brick (Brick also narrated the early King & Maxwell books). Brick is simply the best! I do not mean to detract from the McLarty-Cassidy duo who are also superb.
The book is rather long (audiobook is more than 19 hours). A movie was made and released in 1997 based on the book. The movie is excellent, but not as powerful as the book. The movie was directed by Clint Eastwood and it stars Clint Eastwood, Gene Hackman, and Ed Harris. It is available in DVD, Blu-ray, and Amazon Instant Video.
