Publisher's Summary

"Matt, I need a war." So begins David Baldacci's new book - a thriller unlike any he's written before. "Matt" is Mathew Pender, of Pender Associates - a shadowy organization that specializes in managing seemingly impossible situations for its clients. Sometimes, those services extend to managing - and creating - armed conflict.
When Matt Pender is asked by his client - the largest defense contractor in the world - to manipulate two nations against each other, a shocking and surprising series of events is set in motion that will possibly bring the world to the brink of World War III.
In this epic thriller with a global backdrop, David Baldacci delivers all the twists and turns, compelling characters, and can't-put-it-down pacing that listeners have come to expect from this master storyteller.

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.

Computer written??

It doesn't seem possible that this is the same author that wrote "The Camel Club". Instead of interesting, amusing characters who solve a crime with flair we find single dimensional people who might have been computer originated. This book seems hardly worthy of Author Baldacci.
