If you want a good "page turner" this book will deliver. I have read other Baldacci before and as such, I was able to discern who the bad guys were going to be. Of course that is where the fun is in reading a whodunit; making your own deductions and being validated in the end. The final motives of the bad guy(s) were a bit thin but it still had plausability. Like me, if you had enjoyed other Baldacci you will like this too.
I thought "Gods" was going to be metaphorical and not literal. The short publisher's summary blurb breifly mentions "myth" but there is a lot of mythology in the book of both ancient and modern gods. Aside from it not being what I thought it would be, it also took too long to reach the climatic ending. If you are really into fantasy and mythology stories you might like this book. Otherwise, I thought it was not that great.
