Not a recommended reading. I totally agree with previous reader's (Steven's) review. The story has so many improbable twists, lucky turns, that it is laughable. The jokes aren't funny and, for some reason, I didn't like the narrator. He made everything sound oh-so dramatic. The female character comes across as ridiculously lucky, naive and too 'macho'.
I liked Baldacci but this one is a bad example of his work.

I have read and listened to just about everything David Baldacci has written. Found this book very disappointing - very hard to believe that Baldacci wrote this. The characters are trite, and largely unbelievable. The number of impossibly lucky "events" beggar belief. The "smart alec" dialogue from the hero is off putting and unreal. There is very little positive to say about this effort from Baldacci. It doesn't measure up to his other fiction.
good fast paced story. excellent performance from Ron mclarty. All the usual twists we expect from baldacci. thoroughly recommend.

I like David Baldacci. He writes a good yarn and it was well read. You wanted to carry on listening. At first I found the intermittant sound effect a bit odd. I listened to it whilst gardening and I thought the wheelbarrow needed oiling only to find out it was a highspeed motorbike chase, it scared the cat and me.
I have read some of my other reviews and I can be a bit dismissive, but yes I would definately have another David Baldacci
