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.

    "What Happened??"

    It's a long time for the plot to unfold, and was all over the place.
    This book was not one of his best, good but not great.

    "What a great Book"

    I am a big Baldacci fan. This book is great and seems like the begining of a great series. This is well worth the credit.

    "Excellent"

    I must've listened to a differnt book than the other reviewers. I rated it a 5 and thought it was excellent.

    I also do favor police detective stories so maybe I'm biased. If you like these you'll enjoy this book.

    "Awful story"

    I strongly don't recommend it. The core message is everything is valid to defend the homeland security. The founders of America would be ashamed of this book.

    "Good Listen"

    I really liked this book. While the premise is very serious and certainly plausible, the tone was a little less serious and more tongue-in-cheek than some of Baldacci's other books. It made me laugh out loud in spots. I hope Baldacci will continue Mace's and Beth's stories in future books.

    "Baldacci's Best"

    Many different angles so pay close attention. Exciting and thought provoking. Keeps you guessing right to the end. Had a hard time putting this one down. Loved it.

    Story
    "When will the bad guys learn?"
    Would you try another book from David Baldacci and/or Ron McLarty?

    Typically I love Baldacci and McLarty but the story was so cliched. I imagined that Baldacci wrote it on a dare to be trite.


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Baldacci again?

    Yes, but my impression of him has gone way down. I would be very choosy.


    Have you listened to any of Ron McLarty’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Ron rocks, as always


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It attempted to answer the question of how many bad guys would make the mistake of given our heroine one last word.


    Any additional comments?

    Goofy premise, absurd plot, ridiculous details.

    "Agony"

    I'm new to David Bladacci and was blown away with Absolute Power. This was my second book and it was very, very disappointing. It was just bad the whole story line, plot -- so bland.

    "Disappointing"

    This is the first Baldacci that I've been tempted to put down. I wish I had. It did not get better.

    "So So"

    A new adventure by Baldaccci and a new "hero"? I'll wait till the next book before I'll commit myself to this character and storyline. Needs better development and a "believable" storyline. We'll see.
