True Blue

Mason "Mace" Perry was a firebrand cop on the D.C. police force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime. She lost everything-her badge, her career, her freedom-and spent two years in prison. Now she's back on the outside and focused on one mission: to be a cop once more. Her only shot to be a true blue again is to solve a major case on her own, and prove she has the right to wear the uniform.

Publisher's Summary

A mysterious high-profile homicide in the nation's capital collides with the dark side of national security in David Baldacci's new, heart-stopping thriller.

Mason "Mace" Perry was a firebrand cop on the D.C. police force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime. She lost everything - her badge, her career, her freedom-and spent two years in prison. Now she's back on the outside and focused on one mission: to be a cop once more.

Her only shot to be a true blue again is to solve a major case on her own, and prove she has the right to wear the uniform. But even with her police chief sister on her side, she has to work in the shadows: A vindictive U.S. attorney is looking for any reason to send Mace back behind bars.

Then Roy Kingman enters her life. Roy is a young lawyer who aided the poor until he took a high-paying job at a law firm in Washington. Mace and Roy meet after he discovers the dead body of a female partner at the firm. As they investigate the death, they start uncovering surprising secrets from both the private and public world of the nation's capital.

Soon, what began as a fairly routine homicide takes a terrifying and unexpected turn-into something complex, diabolical, and possibly lethal.

    "Baldacci should get back to the Camel Club"

    True Blue was an average listen. I didn't find the characters compelling or believable. The sisters are just plain illogical in most of their actions. If they were a bit more eccentric, I could understand. Baldacci should get back to writing Camel Club books and stop with these poor diversions.

    "Not his normal work"

    I'm a Baldacci fan period. If he writes it, I buy it. This was not in my normal great job book section. Plot OK, Theme OK, just never grabbed me.

    "WORST BOOK I'VE EVER "READ""

    I am amazed this book ever got published. It is so predictable it is almost laughable until I realize that I paid for this! One new thing I did learn, however, was to start reading the reviews of future purchases.

    "great start"

    this book started out great, went along fine, but fizzled at the end... i enjoy his books as a rule, so all in all worth the read...

    "True Blue"

    Baldacci- It was hard for me to remember I was reading one of his books. The plot was slow and not really interesting -I finish the book only because I always do -hoping it will get better. This book did get alittle more interesting but was not a good book that held your interest. Do not buy this book thinking it is going to be one you cannot put down. In fact it is one very easy to put down and then pick up hoping it will improve. It did get better but not good. I was most disappointed and the reviews were overrated.

    "A good listen for Baldacci fans"

    I read some of the reviews that stated that this was not a good example of Baldacci's work . I strongly disagree - I really enjoyed the characters - I hope to see the sisters in future books. I enjoyed the story and did not have ANY trouble following the various sub plots. While the Camel Club series remains my favorite- I really enjoyed this one too. Ron McLarty continues to do justice to the writing.

    "Not the best"

    I love David Baldacci's books! I bought this one as soon as it came out, then kept it for later when I knew I would really enjoy it. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. It is another conspiracy book, but it lacks the charm of the Camel Club series. I found myself not really caring if Mace and Roy came out alive. I think that this is the first of a series because it leaves you hanging. I hope the next one is better.
