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.

    "This book is not a disappointment"
    What made the experience of listening to True Blue the most enjoyable?

    Never knowing who to trust


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I think Mace's undercover work on her own was a little annoying , she was a little overbearing


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

    Yes and I love everything he has read to me


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    It's an interesting book , not one of my favorites tho

    "I Agree, A Dissappointment"

    I do think Baldacci has been putting out dissappointing stories lately. He is polific in the amount he writes, maybe he needs to slow down on quantity in order to improve on quality. All of the other reviewers have said it well. There are good and bad to the story. I did finish it, because I felt my respect to Baldacci deserved it. And that wasn't totally intolerable. That was in large part because I do enjoy McLarty as a narrator. But as others have said, most of the story line was unbeleiveable and inconsistent. His attempt in having strong female central characters was not successful.

    "No longer an engaging writer for me."
    What did you like best about True Blue? What did you like least?

    I became a fan of Baldacci with Camel Club and found the books in that series to be engaging and challenging. However, the later books are losing interest for me and this may be the last one I listen to.

    "Another winner"

    If no other, this will make you a Baldacci fan. Narrations and background sound effects are terrific

    "True Blue"

    Great fast moving story, I could hardly stop listening. The ending was real but I was surprised it was not the usual Hollywood ending. The reader was good. Can not wait to read more by this author.

    "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.

    "A little out of character"

    This book was a little out of character for this author Did not have the suspense or the build up to action that his previous novels had
