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.

    Story
    "I Expected Better"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, I thought the story line could use improving. It was too predictable and didn't grab me the way Zero Day did. I was rather disappointed. Also I thought the narration was not as good as Zero Day.


    Did Ron McLarty do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    It would have been better to have a female voice for the female roles. Also, his lack of British accents for the British characters was noticeable.


    Did Deliver Us from Evil inspire you to do anything?

    Just to be cautious when choosing books from this author. I like some of his work but not all of it.


    Any additional comments?

    The amount of time spent on the violence was way too long. I fast forwarded through a lot of it because not only was it sickening but I wanted to get to the story and find out what happened next.

    "Baldacci goes rogue!"

    A regular David Baldacci novel with white hats and black hats and no gray hats. The white hats are however vigilante assassins. The black hats are mass murdering extreme torture guys. So Baldacci spends much time explaining to use why vigilante justice is OK, even if the murder of the bad guy is kept quiet leaving the rest of the world to think the the bad guy got away with it. Wouldn't you want to point out to the world that the mass murder got what he deserved to possibly deter future mass murderers? Nope that would alert your targets retard your murder rate. Really they used that justification in the book!!
    Sorry it is just a bad book with a bad message and David Baldacci should be ashamed of himself!
    David Baldacci's work is inconsistent' the Camel Club books, "Wish you well", and "Christmas Train" are among some of his best work. "Deliver Us from Evil" is one of his stinkers.

    "Another great book!! I could not put it down!!"

    I have read all of Baldacci's books and have never been disappointed.. Sure.. some are better than others and this one is quite long but I guess I'm hooked on "long" novels and it doesn't bother me...Well worth your money or credits..

    "From engaging to disengaged"

    His first few novels were among the most engaging I have read - but somehow his plots have a suspension of belief rather than of disbelief. I hope he gets back in the groove.

    "DISSAPOINTED"

    Usually I really enjoy David Baldacci's books but this one was lackluster and disjointed. Having enjoyed
    over a dozen of his previous novels this came as a surprise. What a disapointment

    "horrible"

    This is the most gruesome book I ever read. I have read his books in the past and they were very good. I doubt I will read him again if this is the style of writing he has adopted

    "ghastly graphic"

    What happened? The story had a thin plot. But what totally turned me off was the graphic description of torture. Will be deleting this story from my ipod. It seemed out of character from the other books I have listened to from this author.
