    In South America a 96-year-old man of great wealth reads a book late one night and an hour later he lies dead in his bed, the secrets of his past starkly revealed. Six months later another mystery man lies dead at the bottom of his pool in a villa in Provence. This time, however, there's a witness at the scene: Shaw, the shadowy operative from The Whole Truth who barely escapes with his life.

    B. Bozeman says: "Disappointing"
    "Just okay..."
    Overall

    Normally I love Baldacci but this book was a bit disappointing. The violence in the torture scenes were painful to read. I almost couldn't make it through. And the relationships between characters never really got off the ground. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't great. Just okay....

    America is a barren landscape of smoldering ashes, devoid of life except for those people still struggling to scratch out some type of existence. Amidst this destruction, a father and his young son walk, always toward the coast, but with no real understanding that circumstances will improve once they arrive. Still, they persevere, and their relationship comes to represent goodness in a world of utter devastation.

    Overall

    This is book is not for those looking for a plot and action. The dialogue is plodding and dark with little forward motion. I did find, however, that it sticks with you and makes you think. The interact between father and son is sweet and endearing; the setting dark and terrifying with little redemption.
    Didn't love it, didn't hate it. I read the whole thing which says something for it.
