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.

What the Critics Say

"Has the essential elements of a terrific novel: a tough but tender-hearted hero, dirty dealings in the nation's bureaucracy, and a roller-coaster plot." (Amazon.com)

    "Great narrator, story good"

    I could listen to the narrator Jason Culprit all day and will look for more narration by him. The book was good but was not one of my favorites by Baldacci who I really like.

    "Excellent book! Wonderful characters! Top notch!"
    What made the experience of listening to Last Man Standing the most enjoyable?

    The performance was wonderful and the story had a lot going on which kept it interesting. Great writing David!


    What about Jason Culp’s performance did you like?

    Everything!!! Can't get better than what he did!


    Any additional comments?

    Just a really enjoyable listen. Just one thing though, the tone was different than all the other books I've listened to. If sounded a bit Mono and like it was coming through a can than high quality HD stereo... But, it was an EXCELLENT book and performance!

    "Is it over yet?"

    This story took forever to become interesting. The narrators voice droned on with very little animation. Not the absolute worst audible book I have listened to so far, but close.

    "More twists than a six flags coaster"

    Very slow in the uptake, hard to follow at first. Three hours till you get a grasp on the story line, crazy ending.

    Story
    "A long and winding road...."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Depends on the friend, but for those who like mysteries, conspiracies, constantly changing situations involving complex characters, you bet!! Much of the time I read these because they are available, with fairly low expectations. But this kept my interest the whole time. I have read almost everything Baldacci has written, and will continue to read his work.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The evolution of the characters. Very often character development is second (or third) to plots and conversations, but Baldacci gives me characters with depth, breadth and experiences that resonate with my own life. No, I'm not a hostage rescuer, I have never been in a shoot-out, I don't have friends die at my hands, but I have lived and seen the effects of seemingly random acts change me. Webb London is at first glance the ideal man, fast, tall, strong, intelligent, etc. But soon those flaws show up, and their importance in the events that follow.


    What does Jason Culp bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does a good job. Not one of my favorites, but I enjoyed his reading of the book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I think the revelations of past events. I'm not going to give away the book, but as events unfold, it becomes apparent why people respond the way they do to those events. Not random reactions, but reactions that seem realistic based on past experiences, just like in my life.


    Any additional comments?

    A good stand-alone book is a rare and precious thing. Yes, I love serials, but don't always have the time and money (or interest) in a ten-year journey that often becomes redundant, tedious and irrelevant. So this worked for me. If you are a fan of Baldacci, enjoy. If you haven't tried his work, give it a shot. Well worth it for me.

    Story
    "Too long and too much detail makes it slow moving."

    Extremely long , very detailed, to the point of dragging very slow at times. More action & less detail would have made it a better book to listen too.

    "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.

    "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.
