David Baldacci didn't live up to his past works. being a fan of his work I was excited to listen to his next book. I had to fight my way through the entire book. I would not recommend this book to others, but I am still looking forward to David's next book.
Retired after 36 years in Law Enforcement. Now working part time for the Sheriff Office.
It's a long time for the plot to unfold, and was all over the place.
This book was not one of his best, good but not great.
Say something about yourself!
I am a big Baldacci fan. This book is great and seems like the begining of a great series. This is well worth the credit.
I must've listened to a differnt book than the other reviewers. I rated it a 5 and thought it was excellent.
I also do favor police detective stories so maybe I'm biased. If you like these you'll enjoy this book.
I strongly don't recommend it. The core message is everything is valid to defend the homeland security. The founders of America would be ashamed of this book.
I really liked this book. While the premise is very serious and certainly plausible, the tone was a little less serious and more tongue-in-cheek than some of Baldacci's other books. It made me laugh out loud in spots. I hope Baldacci will continue Mace's and Beth's stories in future books.
Many different angles so pay close attention. Exciting and thought provoking. Keeps you guessing right to the end. Had a hard time putting this one down. Loved it.

Typically I love Baldacci and McLarty but the story was so cliched. I imagined that Baldacci wrote it on a dare to be trite.
Yes, but my impression of him has gone way down. I would be very choosy.
Ron rocks, as always
It attempted to answer the question of how many bad guys would make the mistake of given our heroine one last word.
Goofy premise, absurd plot, ridiculous details.
I'm new to David Bladacci and was blown away with Absolute Power. This was my second book and it was very, very disappointing. It was just bad the whole story line, plot -- so bland.
