Memorable characters that are rather stereotypical and one-dimensional. Pulse-quickening plot that is implausible and at times doesn't even make sense. As a first book in a series, it doesn't quite deliver.
... that got me started with Baldacci. And I am such a fan! The man can write a thriller! And his characters stay with you forever. Think Dirty Harry has all the cute sarcastic one-liners? You haven't met Baldacci's "Oliver Stone", and the club members? You gotta love 'em!...Continua
I felt the actions of the Vice President were not realistic. They displayed a bias of the type of response some people would expect from the government, but I don't believe that the scenario set up would result in those actions.
This is the first time I've read Baldacci's book. It certainly won't be my last!!
I love the characters, the plot and the way Baldacci's writing style. Onto another Baldacci book.
