When his hostage rescue team is wiped out in a brutal set-up, Web London is the last man standing. Now he just has to keep it that way...It took seven seconds for Web London to lose everything: his friends, his team, his reputation. Point man of the FBI's super-elite Hostage Rescue Team, Web roared into a blind alley toward a drug leader's lair, only to meet a high-tech, custom-designed ambush that killed everyone around him. Now coping with the blame-filled words of anguished widows and the suspicions of colleagues, Web tries to put his life back together. To do so, he must discover why he was the one man who lived through the ambush - and find the only other person who came out of the alley alive...a ten-year-old boy who has since disappeared. Last Man Standing is an explosive psychological thriller about a man desperate to find answers - from the secret terrors he has kept for himself to his unbearable guilt. His fight to save himself and those he cares for will come at a high cost...and threaten everything he has grown to believe in. With vividly realized characters and a breathtaking pace, this is another spellbinding novel from David Baldacci, one of today's best storytellers.Read Less

Pretty Good Read
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.
