As I am finding out Author David Baldacci is an amazing author. I've read three of his Will Robie series and I have a very hard time putting the books down and doing my housework. I am now starting my 4th book.
Another great book.
Worst of the first 3 books
I enjoyed the first 2 books, but the plot in this one is completely implausible, from some weird neonazi extremist kidnapping and patricide to a bizarre rescue of some characters we absolutely do not care for in a North Korean labor camp to the dumbest assassination attempt on the First Family. Characters are either good, so we must see them as heroes or victims, or evil, so they are completely shallow and must predictably die. No moral dilemmas whatsoever. Ending is very predictable, rushed, and abrupt.
Feel free to skip this one. Not sure if I'll be picking up the 4th entry now.
Very disappointing. Far-fetched, crazy, unrealistic, predictable. Unlike other Robie reads.

Long but good; 3 books in 1!
By Lucy B,
This was a fun read that I just could not put down. Thanks!
David Baldacci writes some of the best suspenseful stories I've ever read. This is another one in a long list of great books. I must admit I was teary-eyed at the end. I love Jessica Reel and Will Robie together! They work so well together and I love how they always have each other's back....Bravo, Mr. Baldacci!

Have rated most of his previous books 4 stars. This one is simplistic and unimaginative.
Do NOT buy - possibly not written by Baldacci
Nothing about this book reads like a Baldacci. It’s almost like he got some to “co-author” it for him. Do yourself a favour and get the sample first - you’ll know what I mean. S-L-O-W, dull, “I can’t believe it’s a Baldacci” book. Terribly painful.
