Publisher's Summary

In this gripping mystery, an FBI Agent’s search for her sister clashes with a military investigator's high-stakes case, leading them both deep into a global conspiracy - from which neither of them will escape unscathed.

For many long years, Atlee Pine was tormented by uncertainty after her twin sister, Mercy, was abducted at the age of six and never seen again. Now, just as Atlee is pressured to end her investigation into Mercy's disappearance, she finally gets her most promising breakthrough yet: the identity of her sister's kidnapper, Ito Vincenzo.

With time running out, Atlee and her assistant Carol Blum race to Vincenzo's last known location in Trenton, New Jersey - and unknowingly stumble straight into John Puller's case, blowing his arrest during a drug ring investigation involving a military installation.

Stunningly, Pine and Puller's joint investigation uncovers a connection between Vincenzo's family and a breathtaking scheme that strikes at the very heart of global democracy. Peeling back the layers of deceit, lies and cover-ups, Atlee finally discovers the truth about what happened to Mercy. And that truth will shock Pine to her very core.

2 books w/o resolution????

Disappointed with ending. After reading previous 2 books, I thought surely Atlee would finally solve the mystery. Now I have to wait another year? Very upset with Baldacci. I have read or listened to ALL of his books; this may be my last one.

Bye Bye Baldacci

Die hard fan for years but no more. I'm done.
This is pretty much a rehash of the last story line just a new location with some soap box political commentary pontificating thrown in.

Narration is great, Kyf is always spot on, his range and ability to get accents and inflection right make even a bad story line tolerable but he couldn't save this one. Brittany was starting to grow on me, and she does a decent job but again, nothing can make this mess tolerable.

Absolutely Fantastic

Breathtaking ..this is the best one yet. I never wanted it to end. adding the Puller's in it gave it that extra kick. The next one can't come fast enough I'll be listening to this one over and over again . Absolutely fantastic

If you really like mysteries and thrillers...

If you really like mysteries and thrillers, look elsewhere. This book and series is like riding It's a Small World, as an adult.

Daylight: starring "Karen" as FBI agent Atlee Pine

It is a complicated story and the people involved are many. You must read the first two book for this to make any sense.

My issue however the way Atlee Pine is acting at the end of the book. It is more like an immature child than the strong female FBI agent. Anyone who is an avid reader knows that one over the top scene can ruin a book or a character. This one comes very close and the annoying antics of the lead is impossible to ignore.

In a fit of childlike temper tantrum mixed with out of control you-tube Karen like anger, she stomps toward a house under construction belonging to someone who made her mad. Then she literally proceeds to karate kick ((Hi-Yaa!")) and hand chop ((Hee-yaaaa!")) down a framed house under construction. All this after firing her pistol in the air sending workers running for cover.

There will be a book four, but to have any degree of realism, this one will no doubt start with an ex-agent Atlee escaping from the mental ward.

Like and Hate

Fast paced. Most of Baldacci's books read like a good mystery, action movie. My only issue is the twin's situation. Really, we had to go there and it had to be that? So many other directions to take. No rainbows and unicorns in this book and that's why I liked and hated it. Looking out for next book in the series.

the ending though

Really frustrated with the turn the book took at the end. So many ways it could have gone and instead it just seemed silly. I've never wanted to get to the end of a book like I did this one. Not sure I'll continue this series after this

Excellent!

I enjoyed this fast paced story, for the most part. I’m not crazy over the male narrator, though! Can’t stand his raspy voice. The female narrator was ok. Regardless, it was a good story.
