Publisher's Summary

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.

Meanwhile, a half a world away, photojournalist Katie James is working on a story of international importance. But shortly after her meeting with a potential inside source, she is smuggled unconscious onto an airplane headed to an undisclosed destination. In the days to come, Katie and Shaw will be reunited in a deadly duel of nerve and wits against a surprising, secretive enemy and led around the world at a breakneck pace.

Filled with the kind of breathtaking plot turns and remarkable characters that only David Baldacci can deliver, it will be the most explosive thriller of the year.

    "Cartoonish Characters in Predictable Plot"

    Disappointing. I like Baldacci, but not this one. Characters are flat and laughable--the villain revels in being gruesome, and the hero pulls off superhuman feats. No intricate plot either - it has only one direction to go: this uber evil man has to be killed. In each skirmish the outcome is predictable (bad guys will win this one, and this one, now good guys prevail). The narration didn't bother me as it did others, though his accents were inconsistent at times. Hope DB's next one is better.

    "Wow.."

    David Baldaccci's bad guys are bad enough to make you have bad dreams. This is a well written, intense book. It was quite a roller coaster ride. This is only my second Baldacci book. First FAmily did not make me want to read again. I am really glad I bought this book. This is a grabber book,even if you find the subject matter repugnant, Baldacci still makes you want to find out what happens....

    "Disappointed"

    I have read all of Baldacci's books and found this one not up to what I have come to accept from him.

    "Is this really a Baldacci book?"

    If someone gave me this book and asked me to id th author, never in a million years would I have picked David Baldacci. I am a huge fan. But he really phoned this one in. Cliche after tired cliche. "Tipping point" - really? I used to buy his books sight unseen. His books are usually more intelligent. This was a huge disappointment.

    "entertaining but uninspired"

    This is the follow up to The Whole Truth featuring Shaw the mysterious man who works for a mysterious organization. In this sequel, you don't really learn much more about him - he and the organization he works for are still both mysteries.

    This story starts (in my opinion) very slowly. The story doesn't really get going until you get 2-3 hours into the book. At that point, you get the excitement and interest that you expect from Baldacci. However, the details in the story are not very inspired. Shaw and the heroine Reggie work for two groups after the same man for different reasons. They combine forces to accomplish their goal. Much of the story suffers from the need of the heroes to kill their quarry in a certain way - rather than just shoot him...they miss numerous chances to just gun him down in favor of more complicated plots to lure him into underground chambers...

    If you like Baldacci, you are likely to be entertained by this book but it is not as good as some of his other efforts.

    "Deliver us from Evil"

    This was terrible. I am a baldacci fan but I must say, it didn't even sound like Baldacci. It was confusing, didn't make sense, and the story line took forever to come together. My daughter is a Baldacci fan also..she called me and said "Mom, this is awful.... I don't want to read anymore." I told her not to bother...and I gave her a quick overview. It gets much better in the second half when all the characters are in one place. If you have a lot of patience..be my guest. I also felt like he couldn't make up his mind how he wanted to end it, so he didn't. Not good. I give it one star.

    "I really wanted it to be better..."

    Not Baldacci's best by far. Went into it w/ very high hopes, but a let down. Shaw didn't win me as a fan, he's not a very likeable hero in the end.
    Hope the next one is better.

    "Not one of my favorites"

    I usually love Baldacci's audiobooks but this one for me was just ok. The story was kind of slow and I really didn't care for Ron McClarty's reading. He doesn't do a good British accent and he wasn't consistent with it. I know I have liked him before because he has read several other Baldacci books.

    "Finally"

    I quit reading Baldacci when he got into the Oliver Stone books. I think one of the best audible books I have read or heard was "Last Man Standing". This book, "Deliver Us From Evil" has made me a Baldacci fan again.

    "By far the worst Balducci. Worst book of the year?"

    Surprised to see the same author who created such incredible characters in the Camel Club has stooped to flat, boring, predictable. Having to use teen sex rings, torture and holocaust to have us think the bad guy is a villain worthy of vigilantly acts. Did not find anything, or character in this book worthy of the time lost reading it.
