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.

    "Last Man Standing"

    one of the worst book I have purchased. the first half so tedious I had to skip multiple chapters. the second half unorganized with more of the same tedious unnecessary details. I should get my money back for this one, surprisingly I have enjoyed a number of his books until this flop

    "Knuckle biter"

    Many layers of plot written to keep the listener on the edge. Exciting beginning, unexpected ending to the very end of the story.

    Story
    "Narration put me to sleep"

    This may be a better book to read rather than listen to. The story is compelling but I found the narration very dull and I actually had to turn it off while driving because it made me sleepy.

    Story
    "Editor's Choice Recommendation; Really?"
    Would you try another book from David Baldacci and/or Jason Culp?

    No. Weak prose; predictable, I kept waiting for this book to get interesting. It never did.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something by Koontz


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jason Culp?

    No one. It's a book that's not worth the listen, no matter who reads it.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    The reader had little with which to work.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Decent"

    Good mystery with all the right elements. Maybe a bit too far fetched. Good pacing that kept my interest all the way through.

    "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
