David Baldacci's novels have been called "sizzling" (USA Today) and "superior" (Houston Chronicle). Now Baldacci is back, with the story of a death row inmate, a Supreme Court clerk, and a crime that is costing people their lives.
Michael Fiske broke the law when he took Rufus Harms's prison letter from the Supreme Court. But he also sealed his own fate. Now Michael's brother, a cop turned attorney, is coming to Washington to find out why his brother was murdered - and what it had to do with a crime that Rufus Harms committed 25 years before.
In his new novel of corruption, romance, family, and justice at the heart of the American republic, David Baldacci takes us on a journey of harrowing conspiracy - and proves once again that in the realm of suspense, he is in a league of his own. The simple truth... it's never what it seems.

Suspenseful and well worth reading
Yes I liked him very much !!!! He puts emphasis in the right places
Yes I could have very well sat and listened to it all the way thru but due to work that isn't possible
I liked all the characters in this book !!!
Narration was decent, and had a reasonable flow, and I would have rated the story higher but it was to predictable.
Love the twists and turns. Very well written as are all of his books.
Actually, yes I would. In the audio version, the characters really came alive for me,
The closeness of Rufus and Josh warmed my heart, They are such authentic characters and their willingness to give their lives for each other was amazing. When Josh was wounded, all Rufus could think of was getting him to safety. Very touching.
While he didn't sound like a woman, something about his voice gave life to all the characters, including the female characters.
I couldn't put this book down. I ran out of battery and couldn't wait for my Kindle Fire to recharge. I stayed up until 3 a.m. to finish the book. I laughed and cried. I fell in love with the characters, especially Rufus. I wanted so badly for him to be free and happy, and for the men who shot him full of drugs and tried to kill him to be punished one way or another.
Baldacci books are always good, but The Simple Truth is exceptional. I've read it twice and listened to it three times. It's excellent.
I've come to expect excellence from Baldacci. This book is just sort of run-of-the-mill. The characters are interesting, the story a decent one yet there just isn't the pizzazz that I so like when reading a Baldacci. So I won't recommend or not recommend - you're on your own!!
As always, well almost always, another great book from David B! I am striving to read all of his books (about half way along. Narration was well done, delivery just perfect via direct download.
The intricate plot kept my interest from start to finish.
Plot twists - kept me guessing
Rufus Harms is an amazing and inspiring character.
52 year old male masters degree small business owner
Baldacci never disappoints
this was a great read with a very believable story line.
I didn't find myself correcting poorly researched comments
I really enjoyed this book. I found myself sitting in the car listening. Great plot and kept you guessing who done it.
