Publisher's Summary

David Baldacci's novels have been called "sizzling" (USA Today) and "superior" (Houston Chronicle). Now Baldacci is back, with the story of a death row inmate, a Supreme Court clerk, and a crime that is costing people their lives.
Michael Fiske broke the law when he took Rufus Harms's prison letter from the Supreme Court. But he also sealed his own fate. Now Michael's brother, a cop turned attorney, is coming to Washington to find out why his brother was murdered - and what it had to do with a crime that Rufus Harms committed 25 years before.
In his new novel of corruption, romance, family, and justice at the heart of the American republic, David Baldacci takes us on a journey of harrowing conspiracy - and proves once again that in the realm of suspense, he is in a league of his own. The simple truth... it's never what it seems.

Can't finish because of narrator.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I couldn't get past the first few chapters because the narration was so monotone and dull. Love this author, I guess I'll read the book.

Disappoint? Balcacci? Not Likely!

As a plotter, Baldacci seems to be among the most playful thriller writers. And in the Simple Truth we all get to play his game. The point is that the book goes from point A to point END as if it's supposed to go that way. Too many authors in this genre seem to turn their endings into the last two minutes of an NBA game. You know, where all heel explodes and the preceding stuff was just there to get the fans through their beers and back-slapping. In the Simple Truth the entire story arc's got game. And you aren't left wanting another stopping place or wondering why there were so many parts left over as you pull the plot apart in backward glances. The simple truth is that the characters, feelings, and plot all work. Cool!
