But then, appalled by the desperate poverty he witnessed on his global travels, he decided to use his political genius to help the world's poor. With the aid of his loyal assistant, attractive and committed Faith Lockhart, Danny now works tirelessly, and in secret, to redress the balance of power.

But Robert Thornhill has rather different ideas about what constitutes public service. A ruthless top-ranking veteran of covert CIA activity, he discovers the secret of Danny's political influence and is determined to destroy him....

Great story, but too mushy in parts.

Good, fast paced story but undermined by breathy and fluffy lead female role. I found her naïveté and downright stupidity at times extremely irritating, which ultimately impacted on the quality of the overall read for me.

Almost impossible

Where did they find this narrator? So difficult to listen to him. Smug and very mannered. Read the words and then listen to them here demonstrates how he clearly gets in the way of the story.

Best Baldacci book yet!

Loved the story and the characters kept me up late many nights.
Looking for the next one now.

Not OK

It’s not OK to have the hero of the story commit an horrific sexual assault and then have his victim fall in love with him the next day. Completely irresponsible subplot that ruined an otherwise passable story.

Narrator spoilt it

The narrator ‘s odd inflictions on words and tone distracted from the story .. it almost sounded like he was mocking speak the whole way through I only finished it beachside if the story but had to restart a number of times

Great Read

Hard to follow at first but if you persist it becomes a really good read with lots of twists and turns. The ending is unexpected.
