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.

Ron McLarty comfortably handles the diverse accents and speech rhythms required to establish identifiable characters of both genders. Several characters in this thriller are making repeat appearances from the recent novel THE WHOLE TRUTH. McLarty's command of pace and clarity of delivery allow the listener to navigate the challenges of following two separate investigations while also untangling the pathology of a war criminal and terrorist. McLarty's subtle emotional intensity is particularly compelling as he presents horrifying scenes without theatrics. The seemingly random insertion of ominous- sounding music is the only distraction in this satisfying audio experience. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
