The bestselling author of Absolute Power and the Winner proves again that he is a superstar in the thriller firmament; Determined to give his family the best of everything, young executive Jason Archer has entered into a deadly game of cat and mouse. He is about to disappear, leaving behind a wife who must sort out his lies from his truths, an air crash investigation team that wants to know why his plane suddenly fell from the sky and a veteran FBI agent who wants to know it all. Soon the startling truth behind Jason Archer's disappearance explodes into a sinister plot with the murder of the country's single most powerful individual. And Archer's wife, Sidney, is plunged straight into the violence that is leaving behind a trail of dead bodies and shocking, exposed secrets.
Fast paced from first page. My heart in my throat throughout book. Didn't know who did it until very end. My heart went out to Sidney. Would love to know a man like Sawyer!

as they say, "couldn't put it down" More twists and turns than an ivy hanging on a brick building. the technology about computers scared me, but I'm an old lady, what do I know of all this "big brother"? I think David Baldacci is an author displaying excellant craftmanship, not only in his writing but also in this conundrum of a plot.

This is the most interesting book I've ever read. The plot is great and the characters are well-developed.
Publishers Weekly, 2013-06-24 Sidney Archer is sent reeling when she learns that her husband Jason, an executive at a top technology conglomerate, was aboard a plane that went down with no survivors. Then she gets some good news: Jason didn't make the flight. And some bad news: he's on the run from the FBI, which suspects him of causing the crash. And now, Sidney is being chased by Lee Sawyer, a hardboiled FBI special agent who is falling in love with her, and a resourceful, relentless assassin, who isn't. Jonathan Marosz narrates this audio edition with a high energy, breezy style that not only maintains, but intensifies, listener interest. He also manages to clarify the author's detailed explanations of how various cutting-edge technologies work by vocally emphasizing key points. Marosz selects voices that match the attitudes of the novel's many characters, from the puzzled but determined Sidney to the equally determined and logical Sawyer, whose gruff delivery softens as his feelings for Sidney intensify.
