Another action-packed thriller from one of the world's most popular writers Back in DC after successful missions in Edinburgh and Tangier, assassin Will Robie sees his latest assignment, to eliminate a US government employee, go badly wrong. What had she done, or what did she know? Robie is now a wanted man. But it seems that he's not the only one on the run. Young teenager Julie Getty is devastated by the inexplicable murder of her parents in their home. Who wanted them dead, and why, is a mystery. But Julie is smart enough to believe that their killer will come after her. Robie and Julie meet when he saves her from an attempt on her life as they were trying to leave town. The police investigating the hit start to take an interest in Robie. He's particularly attracting the interest of Special Agent Nicole Vance, who believes that the two cases are connected. Robie finds himself in a dangerous position as he is tasked to investigate a crime at which he was present. Does he need to change sides to save lives -- including his own?
Very good. Appearance of only slight previous use. Cover and binding show a little wear. All pages are undamaged with potentially only a few, small markings. Help save a tree. Buy all your used books from Thriftbooks. Read. Recycle and Reuse.
Super prices, and accurate description of condition. Add fast shipping and you have a great seller who I highly recommend.

I loved this story from the first page, to the end. It was fast-paced,the way I like it! The characters were believable. I usually don't like stories with children as main characters. The young lady in this story was integral in carrying the story line. Very well conceived by Baldacci. I even enjoyed the over the top moments, because the pacing was perfect! This was my intro to this particular character. I'm going to explore him a little further in hopes that Baldacci will continue to please. This book was a bonafide 5 star production.

Newest Baldacci Novel
Opening chapters a little slow, but the remaining chapters move well and are interesting. It could be Baldacci is in a genre he's not familiar with.
