Set in Washington D.C., this fascinating thriller of unparalleled suspense dares to explore an unthinkable abuse of power and criminal conspiracy: a vicious murder involving the US President and a cover-up orchestrared by his zealously loyal Chief of Staff and the Secret Service. But, unknown to the President and his lackeys, one unlikely witness saw everything. Trapped behind a two-way mirror in a country house in Maryland, Luther Whitney, a professional burglar, witnesses an event that destroys his faith in justice. By the time he escapes, pursued by two Secret Service agents, a young woman has been sexually assaulted, then shot dead. And a breathtaking cover-up has been set in motion. "Baldacci's prose is fluent and amazing ...this book is sure to make a killing"- "The Times." "A high-octane legal thriller. An almost Shakespearian study in the nature of evil - horror in its purest form" - "Spectator".Read Less
Fair. Good copy for reading, may have heavy page wear with writing textual notes highlighting or be an heavily used ex library copy with library markings, stickers or stamps. Dust jacket or accessories may not be included.

I had first seen this in the Clint Eastwood Movie by the same name. The book blows the movie out of the water. It's great. You should try this book.

maked good movie material
Very good reading. His style will draw you in.
For his first book, a bit wordy, but intreging.
His newer books drew me to his others. He definitely got better as time went on, but you really need to read the author from the start. About 12 books in all.
The movie was good, but the book was much better.

This book was excellent. I loved every minute of it from beginning to finish. It's one of those books that's an spine-tingling, hair-raising, adrenaline-pumping affair. You will not want to put this book down once you start.
