Point man of the FBI's super-elite Hostage rescue Team, Web roared into a blind alley towards a drug leader's lair, only to meet a high-tech, custom-designed ambush that killed everyone around him. Coping with the blame-filled words of anguished widows and the suspicions of colleagues, Web tries to put his life back together.

Acting on his instincts, Web believes he knows where the killer will strike next. Only this time, he may not survive the attack.

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.
