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.

Not Baldacci's best, but still pretty good

I agree with some of the other reviewers that "Deliver Us from Evil" may not quite rise to Baldacci's usual standard of excellence; but it still delivers plenty of thrills, excitement, and entertainment. If anybody else had written this novel, we would all probably be giving it high marks. We have just come to expect more from David Baldacci. All the same, he has come up with the intriguing plot device of having two highly secret black-ops organizations -- one American and one British -- closing in on the same bad guy, and, unknowingly, interfering with each other's operations. Ron McLarty -- one of my favorite readers -- has a wonderful voice -- or, rather, a wide range of wonderful voices -- and excellent acting chops. I recommend "Deliver Us from Evil" to all thriller lovers. Yes, it may sport slightly cartoonish characters -- especially the bad guys (ooh, so bad!) -- but it none-the-less also features Baldacci's good writing; and it will keep your attention and entertain you.
