This book yes. The characters were rich and varied. David must have a great relationship with his wife because his females are strong but not witchy. Both ladies were cool and strong in their own way without being offensive.
The way the females are treated: real and with respect.
Nice easy diction. I didn't feel I had to listen carefully.
Two of America's best agents careers ruined in a split second.
The only thing that was annoying was how all the women were attracted to Sean. Yeah, right.
I enjoyed this book as always enjoy David Baldacci and I think Scott brick is one of the best narrators out there.
I liked the story and the interaction between the young and energetic and the well seasoned slightly cynical characters
I am someone who enjoys audible books very much now that they exist. As a young student (real young) I can remember a teacher telling me how books can transport people to different places & open up a whole new world. This is how listening to audible books make me feel. Now if I can just stop falling asleep while listening to them at night I would be fine. Ha ha
I had never heard of the author David Baldacci until a friend of mine sent me one of his books. She just said ALL of his books were great. Having bought a new kindle I began buying audible books of his & I have to agree she is right. All I can say is he better keep writing fast in order to keep up with my reading them.
This book was filled with veiled twists & turns that had me guessing all the way through. The plot of two ex security agents fighting to clear their names & reputations made me want to cheer them on. I even liked how the book ended with a mutual collaboration of working together. Catherine

Got tired of waiting for next Camel Club, book - so thought I'd give this one a try. Standard Baldacci character development, early intrigue and potential plot outcomes. Baldacci gives you enough upfront to say ... dang, I knew it would be them. Not as good as the CC team, but these two characters have potential. I'm starting book number 2 today.
Thanks for hours of delightful entertainment.
It is hard to figure out all the involvements which makes for a great story.
The ending-it seems that he ran out of ideas
Not sure-he is excellent!
Not unless they change the ending
It is not that I found the ending an unhappy one-it's that it turned so melodramtic and not at all believeable based upon the characters that were introduced-it probably would have been better if the "villian' won-more believeable anyway
For those of us who enjoy escape through a book that details adventures and a life style out of reach this is a must! King lives in a fancy yet understated style that sounds delightful, romantic and dreamlike. His flashbacks are projected through Maxwell's struggle and mistakes while attempting to achieve success. Maxwell has difficulties exceeding Kings (a woman in a man's world) but Baldacci covers these through Maxwell's thoughts. Baldacci's descriptions are clear and visible. This is an easy listen. Scott Brick's narration is excellent. For an escape and adventure this is a good choice.
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
Locked rooms, no-motive killers, high-level assassins... Yeah... if you like Baldacci... This is good. Brick, as usual, is portentous throughout... He seems to have one mood... grimace. But... in spite of that, it's like one of those movies you enjoy but forget relatively quickly.
One of the better ones I have listened too. I had trouble turning it off until the next day. If you like not knowing who and why the bad guy is until the very end you will enjoy this one.
I have to say I was more than a little disappointed in this book. It was just not up to Balacci's usual standard for a "twists and turns" mystery. There were too many characters, most of whom became suspects of the crimes at one time or another. The story was just too complex and because of this, much of what happened in the book just was not believable. The ending was rediculous with the character's actions and motive. I won't spoil it for those who may read it by saying more on that. Not Mr. Baldacci's best effort but that said, he is still a most talented writer and I will continue reading his books.
