Rainy Afternoon Listening

Found that I just wanted to keep on listening as the rain fell outside. A story that is light in structure and a little predictable, but well read and kept me engaged to the end.

Entertained until the end

The story line was unexpected but the narrator was effective and with the use of the sound effects it was enthralling. Clearly the authors knowledge of the Secret Service and other law agencies makes this story captivating. Baldacci style is very enjoyable which will encourage me to listen to more of his books.
