One of the best things about this novel is how quickly Baldacci gets you to bond with the Archer family. It only takes a couple of chapters before you are really feeling the impending weight of the unfolding mystery. The book starts off with a plane crash and then a one month rewind -- not a spoiler because it happens so quickly. I really liked the way he setup the story. You are left with nothing at the beginning and the twists and turns are slowly revealed with excellent descriptive detail.
The narration is good, I am not crazy about the way Jonathan Maroz performed it; but he did not detract from the suspense.
This book will appeal to someone who is very much a mystery thriller reader. If you are new to Baldacci it will motivate you to read some of his others. It is a must if you have been a long term fan. I consider it a solid wall-ball double, to make a baseball analogy. I would have liked a little more character development and bit more editing. But overall, it is a solid read.

The two main characters are respectively sappy and stupid and must be so in order to carry this extremely weak storyline. By the time I reached the closing chapters, I was unable to even finish the book as my credulity was finally strained to the breaking point. The narrator was good. Too bad he really did not have enough substance to work with.
