Not far from Washington, D.C., in a wooded area of Northern Virginia, a small house at the end of a gravel road serves a secret purpose. With its sophisticated security apparatus and hidden miniaturized cameras, it is being used by the FBI to interview one of the most important witnesses the agency has ever had, a young woman with an incredible story to tell. But a few people know about the secret meeting. And for them, a violent drama is about to begin.
One man-a local private investigator named Lee Adams-has come to the house on the orders of his client. Another man, a hired killer, stakes out the house on orders from his powerful paymasters. And the witness, Faith Lockhart, is coming to tell the FBI everything she knows about the powerful lobbyist with whom she has worked, a man who manipulates U.S. government policy and who, in the process, made some very dangerous enemies. Then, before Faith can tell her story, the hit man pulls the trigger and the wrong victim falls.
Now Faith Lockhart is on the run-from the most dangerous people in America-with Lee Adams, a man she doesn't know, yet must trust.
A relentless chase novel that unfolds as both the FBI and a killer search for Faith and Lee, this is also a searing and utterly suspenseful tale of power gone mad in Washington, and of one woman's desperate attempt to break out of a web of corruption and terror that reaches much further than even she can know. In the hands of master storyteller David Baldacci, Saving Faith elevates the thriller to a new level and poses stunning questions about the rules we live by, the rules we are governed by-and what happens when some people make rules of their own...

Baldacci wrote this in 2000, and it is being packaged as a new release. Knowing that the more foolish among us (yes me) would take this to mean newly written as well. Well this is a rehash of a pretty good story Ill admit, but one I have already read and paid for. Baldacii is not the only author who does this but I wish they would all stop. Put the original publish dates on your audible page please! That would make it just a little less shady. I suspect I will get my money back.

What would have made Saving Faith better?
The dialogue debating FBI and CIA droned on and on. I was listening with my husband on a car trip, and finally had to turn it off to finish later. I was offended by the writer's obvious obliviousness about what constitutes rape, and made me question reading more Baldacci books. The "hero" is a rapist and the heroine thinks she deserves it. Very disappionted, and had a hard time finishing the book..
Has Saving Faith turned you off from other books in this genre?
Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Kramer’s performances?
Yes. I thought it was the content that made it feel slow.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
