Publisher's Summary

In South America, a 96-year-old man of great wealth reads a book late one night and an hour later he lies dead in his bed, the secrets of his past starkly revealed. Six months later, another mystery man lies dead at the bottom of his pool in a villa in Provence. This time, however, there's a witness at the scene: Shaw, the shadowy operative from The Whole Truth who barely escapes with his life.
Meanwhile, a half a world away, photojournalist Katie James is working on a story of international importance. But shortly after her meeting with a potential inside source, she is smuggled unconscious onto an airplane headed to an undisclosed destination. In the days to come, Katie and Shaw will be reunited in a deadly duel of nerve and wits against a surprising, secretive enemy and led around the world at a breakneck pace.
Filled with the kind of breathtaking plot turns and remarkable characters that only David Baldacci can deliver, it will be the most explosive thriller of the year.

Why Not Five Stars?

Baldacci is back with a taut thriller, a welcome return to his usual style, unlike his last book. The plot is tight, and you want to keep reading. Shaw is developed further as a character, as is his relationship with Frank. The narration is top notch.

Why, then, didn't I give it a five star rating?

Because there's too much graphic description of the gruesome torture Waller enjoys inflicting. There's a lot of it, and some of it is stomach turning. It felt more than just a bit unnecessary. Those who are sensitive to graphic descriptions of the horrors that can be inflicted on the human body and the instruments by which it is done, should perhaps think twice about purchasing this book. Or, fast forward past those sections; nothing will be lost.

Despite that, it's a terrific book and I recommend it with the caveat.
