Publisher's Summary

"Matt, I need a war."

So begins David Baldacci's new book - a thriller unlike any he's written before.

"Matt" is Mathew Pender, of Pender Associates - a shadowy organization that specializes in managing seemingly impossible situations for its clients. Sometimes, those services extend to managing - and creating - armed conflict.

When Matt Pender is asked by his client - the largest defense contractor in the world - to manipulate two nations against each other, a shocking and surprising series of events is set in motion that will possibly bring the world to the brink of World War III.

In this epic thriller with a global backdrop, David Baldacci delivers all the twists and turns, compelling characters, and can't-put-it-down pacing that listeners have come to expect from this master storyteller.

Great fast moving story

Terrific story and fast moving. I listen to a lot of audio books and the whole truth has some very gripping moments and a few surprises.

Shaw or Sean, very much the same

Enjoyable story but a little predictable - Boy meets girl... I like most of Baldacci's books, but I ask myself why create a new character, Shaw, who is so much like Sean (a previous character) of "Simple Genius"? And a story that is so obviously designed for ongoing sequels. At least Simple Genius offered a few unforeseen twists and turns which this book (Whole Truth) did not.
