Pretty Good Read Sep 23, 2008
This is a fairly good book about a guy in the FBI HRT section, which is almost like a SWAT team.
His entire team is killed with him being the sole survivor. The only thing that saved him was the fact that he 'froze' at a critical moment.
There are people in the book who think of him as a hero, others who think he set his team up, and others who think he just had a moment of cowardice.
The only bad thing I can say about this book is that Mr. Baldacci seems to have 'padded' it somewhat. There were entire paragraphs that could easily be skipped because they were uninteresting and added nothing to the story line. I think Mr. Baldacci's editor was sleeping on the job. About 20% of this book should have been cut prior to publishing.
However, it IS a good story line. Definitely worth reading.
