Publisher's Summary

In South America, a 96-year-old man of great wealth reads a book late one night and an hour later he lies dead in his bed, the secrets of his past starkly revealed. Six months later, another mystery man lies dead at the bottom of his pool in a villa in Provence. This time, however, there's a witness at the scene: Shaw, the shadowy operative from The Whole Truth who barely escapes with his life.

Meanwhile, a half a world away, photojournalist Katie James is working on a story of international importance. But shortly after her meeting with a potential inside source, she is smuggled unconscious onto an airplane headed to an undisclosed destination. In the days to come, Katie and Shaw will be reunited in a deadly duel of nerve and wits against a surprising, secretive enemy and led around the world at a breakneck pace.

Filled with the kind of breathtaking plot turns and remarkable characters that only David Baldacci can deliver, it will be the most explosive thriller of the year.

    "Best Baldacci Yet!"

    I usually listen to David Baldacci's books, but they aren't the first book I buy when I'm choosing. This one shot Baldacci to the top of my list, however. He's clearly reached his form in this gripping tale of mystery and suspense. Highly recommended.

    "Another Great Story from DB!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Deliver Us from Evil to be better than the print version?

    Have not read the print version... why would I waste my time listening & reading?


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    DB weaves a great story, and keeps it interesting throughout. McLarty is great on his books - always enjoyable.


    What about Ron McLarty’s performance did you like?

    Ron McLarty does espionage & thrillers so well. If he read the phone book and I would listen.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyable listening experience. I enjoyed this book.

    "Maybe worth the sale price, but not full price."
    Would you try another book from David Baldacci and/or Ron McLarty?

    Not unless I was desperate for something to read/listen to. This book had too many cringeworthy moments.


    Has Deliver Us from Evil turned you off from other books in this genre?

    The genre is fine. Baldacci is just not a good writer.


    What three words best describe Ron McLarty’s voice?

    Adequate

    "Good story, less-than-great perspective"

    As always, McLarty is an excellent narrator. His tonal quality and ability to change his voice just enough to let you know who is speaking without overacting make him my favorite. He does not disappoint here.
    The story, however, is not Baldacci at his best. The story line is exciting, well-developed, and sufficiently intricate to make for an enjoyable "read". However, Baldacci seems to have gotten a bit lazy with this one. At too many points within the story line, Baldacci provides too much technical information and character background from a third-person omniscient perspective. I found these breaks from the otherwise compelling story line to be too lengthy and too frequent. I would have much preferred to learn this background information from the characters themselves where possible or in an abbreviated form where not possible, as Baldacci has done in most of his other works. I will not give up on Baldacci (yet), as I have read or listened to almost all of his other works, and I have not found this to be a problem with the others.

    Story
    "I Expected Better"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, I thought the story line could use improving. It was too predictable and didn't grab me the way Zero Day did. I was rather disappointed. Also I thought the narration was not as good as Zero Day.


    Did Ron McLarty do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    It would have been better to have a female voice for the female roles. Also, his lack of British accents for the British characters was noticeable.


    Did Deliver Us from Evil inspire you to do anything?

    Just to be cautious when choosing books from this author. I like some of his work but not all of it.


    Any additional comments?

    The amount of time spent on the violence was way too long. I fast forwarded through a lot of it because not only was it sickening but I wanted to get to the story and find out what happened next.
