Publisher's Summary

It took 10 seconds for Web London to lose everything: his friends, his team, his reputation. Point man of the FBI's super-elite Hostage Rescue Team, Web roared into a blind alley toward a drug-dealer's lair only to meet a high-tech, custom-designed ambush that killed everyone around him.

Now coping with the blame-filled words of anguished widows and the suspicions of colleagues, Web tries to put his life back together with the help of his psychiatrist, Dr. Claire Daniels. To do so he must discover why he was the one man who lived through the ambush - and find the only other person who came out of that alley alive...a 10-year-old boy who has since disappeared.

Web's search leads him from inner-city Washington, DC, to the rolling hills of Virginia horse country - while people connected to him are violently silenced. Acting on his instincts, Web believes he knows where the killer will strike next. Only this time, he may not survive the attack.

Last Man Standing is an explosive psychological thriller about a man desperate to find answers - from the secret terrors he has kept from himself to his unbearable guilt. His fight to save himself and those he cares for will come at a high cost...and threaten everything he has grown to believe in.

    "An Opera!!"

    A masterfully detailed action and high intrigue story. Narrated in the highest order by Jason Culp. Amazing!

    Story
    "Have you ever seen a shrink?"

    The absurdity of the Shrink relationships makes the entire story even more unbelievable than all of the other superficial relationships combined. Not a realistic relationship in the whole book. I expect more from Baldacci

    "Tangential but absorbing"

    Several books could have been produced from this long story. Nevertheless, as the end came near I was compelled to lose some sleep to hear the conclusion.

    "Great , great listen.!"

    I was enthralled and taken in, after what felt like a foggy start. Definitely worth the time. ENJOY

    Story
    "not his best"

    I've read a few Baldacci books, and most of them I like--especially the Maxwell-King stories, but this one-for the most part--was a disappointment. I don't like predictable stories--and this one was predictable. There was even a little stereotyping of the bad guys, even though some of the characteristics of some of the bad guys turned out to be okay, for the most part they were disappointing too.

    But in my opinion it was too easy to tell where the story was going, and who was bad and who was not, and I like my stories to have a few more surprises than this one had.

    However, this one story being predictable, will not stop me from reading another one of Mr. Baldaccci stories.

    Story
    "Hmm..."

    The premise of the story was quite good, but given the clichéd dialogue and the one dimensional characters it was a struggle getting thru this story. I think the author tried to make the main character a conflicted warrior, but I found him a bit weak and whiny. Yes, there were some twists at the end, but not really believable. Bottom line, glad I bought this in a book sale and didn't waste a credit on it.

    Story
    "Baldacci really mailed it in on this one..."

    Poorly researched. He kept referring to 6- barrel 50 cal machine guns which don't exist. Then he kept calling them mini-guns, which do exist but in 7.62 mm not 50 caliber.

    the dialog was trite. the situations unbelievable. like the bad guys searching the undercover agent thoroughly enough to find a back-up weapon up his sleeve but not knowing he was wearing body armour do when they shoot him most of the bullets hit the armour and he survives.

    this is probably the worst book of his I've read

    Story
    "Well Worth The Listen"
    Any additional comments?

    Having never read the book I can not compare the two versions but I am satisfied with the narrative. Like any lengthy book there will be some parts that drag and I found that with this book in a couple of places for very short stretches. Having some knowledge of the subject matter I found it very well researched and was further delighted to find that the author had utilized a former Hostage Rescue Team member as a consultant.

    This a great thriller involving some raw violence, psychological manipulation, culture of an elite team of law enforcement personnel and as with any government operation the bloody politics of the agency. The plot is well paced and laid out very well and the character development is quite good There are some great twists in the plot as well as a conclusion that I found very satisfying as a listener. Some reviewers have stated otherwise but I found it just suited the character (and in that moment of time) to very appropriate. I didn't feel I needed to know anymore.

    I found the narration of Jason Culp to be well done and overall appropriate in his voice portrayals of numerous characters.

    I would recommend this book to most of my friends without hesitation

    "Almost couldn't finish"

    Absolutely did not enjoy this audiobook
    Farfetched and unrealistic
    Narrator just adequate
    Assume that the ending is to provide for a sequel
    That's one book that I will not be choosing

    "A really long book"

    Despite their length, some stories seem to take no time at all. This is not one of them.
