Not up to standands
I consider myself a David Baldacci fan. I thought the original Camel Club and the first follow up were great books. The last in the Camel series was a disappointment for me but I thought it was just me. But The Whole Truth is more than a disappointment. It simply is unacceptable. It is hard to believe that someone who writes the kind of dialog found in his earlier book could posiibly write some of this material. It often sounds like the author was trying to parady some of the trite 1930's mystery films. The narration if possible was even worse than the book. I thought the accents were so bad that they made the bad dialog even worse. One is his characters seems to be a very bad ripoff of Jack Nicholson at his worst. Readers who buy this genre are generally willing to accept some far out premises. But the premises in this book will challence even the most argent thriller fan. David Balducci should go back and read some of his earlier work and figure out how to get back to the high quality of work that earned him so many fans.

Entertaining Action Story
If you are a fan of earlier Baldacci stories involving the Camel Club, you will like this action thriller. A 'secret agent' in a 'secret security organization' is forced into killing for his country. His involvement is complicated when his fiance is killed by the same unknown group that is unleashing chaos on the world.
Definitely and 'escape from reality' action adventure. The characters are smarter than 'average' but the story is more action oriented than cerebral. Kind of James Bondish without the gratuitous lovely costar.
