This classic Baldacci thriller from 1997 is finally back - in unabridged audio and available in CD and download editions!
Sidney Archer has the world. A husband she loves. A job at which she excels and a cherished young daughter. Then, as a plane plummets into the Virginia countryside, everything changes. And suddenly there is no one whom Sidney Archer can trust.
Jason Archer is a rising young executive at Triton Global, the world's leading technology conglomerate. Determined to give his family the best of everything, Archer has secretly entered into a deadly game. He is about to disappear - leaving behind a wife who must sort out his lies from his truths, an accident team that wants to know why the plane he was ticketed on crashed, and a veteran FBI agent who wants to know it all....

I love the outdoors and the warm weather!! And I never leave home with out my I-Nano. It should be surgically placed into my ear. I live and breath for books.
Baldacci has written a roller coaster ride of a book. A professional couple get caught up in a conspiracy. Sidney Archer a criminal attorney and her husband Jason Archer a young executive at Triton Global. Become the escape goats for stolen money, murder, and selling company secrets. If you are a technology geek, you maybe disappointed. The technology used in the story is a bit outdated. Ex: (Some of the characters are using pay phones).
Where I'm from the are almost non-existent, except for airports :) and using floppy disks. I don't know when was the last time I've seen one of those.)
If you don't mind that the book is a bit outdated with tech terminology, then you will enjoy the book.
The narrator Jonathan Marosz was okay, I think Scott Brick or Ron McLarty would have been a better choice.
Over all I still enjoyed the book.
HAVE TOO... missed a couple of chapters....
OMGosh...that's what I kept say... OMGosh... OMGosh...
not sure whether it was the "elevator".... the "Car"... or in the house while she is running the bath water....
Oh yes... I listen to it at night... have to continually go back... if I slip into sleeping
yes, with the caveat that they know it isn't a new book and the narrator was not very good
Yes, i love his books
Hard to specify, but he has the habit of reading each sentence as a separate sentence, instead of placing it in the context of the story. Hard to explain, but very apparent when you listen to it. I will be making sure he doesn't narrate anything else I buy...very, very annoying.
yes, only to get to the end of the story though
Need something to read, this is OK. The story has holes, things happen that make you say to yourself, Really? Baldacci (or whoever really wrote it) stretches out the story longer than necessary, I skipped the last few chapters, cut-OUT another needless chase and got to the end.
The story starts lacking believe-ability. Goes on to long, got bored with it..
Not the greastest narrator
not read the next Baldacci book
It would be great to see Baldacci get back to his original quality of writing.
I LOVE David Baldacci stories, but I had to stop this recording after an hour because the performance was so bad. He mixed up the character voices, used strange cadence and inflections - I could not follow the story and the voice would have put me to sleep if I was not so frustrated. I'll just move on to another book with a different narrator.
You can only coast in 1 direction.
The story is such old technology. 3.5" floppies??? Vintage Baldacci that should have been left to collect dust. Very miss-leading new release from the archives.
No. I usually like the author's work.
Not at all
Like many of the reviewers, I thought this was new release, meaning a new book. I had to look up the publish date about an hour into the book because I thought I missed something in the narration. “you have mail”, AOL, Modems, car phones (not cell phones) etc. Really!! Would have been a decent book when it was first published but it is way out of place if you want a relevant book to today’s technology. It made me squirm to listen to storing data on a floppy disc. Baldacci is a great story teller but you might want to skip this one.
No thrill ... no chill ... no real story ... very simply written ... very dated ...very poor narration ...
I love many Baldacci books! I will check things out more carefully.
no timing ... no drama ... no character development ... very monotonous ...
I am so disappointed! I feel cheated. It was a waste of time and money.
Shame on Audible. At best, this should have been a 99 cent special.
