Evan Waller is a monster. He has built a fortune from his willingness to buy and sell anything . . . and anyone. In search of new opportunities, Waller has just begun a new business venture: one that could lead to millions of deaths all over the globe.

On Waller's trail is Shaw, the mysterious operative from The Whole Truth, who must prevent Waller from closing his latest deal. Shaw's one chance to bring him down will come in the most unlikely of places: a serene, bucolic village in Provence.

But Waller's depravity and ruthlessness go deeper than Shaw knows. And now, there is someone else pursuing Waller in Provence-Reggie Campion, an agent for a secret vigilante group headquartered in a musty old English estate-and she has an agenda of her own.

Hunting the same man and unaware of each other's mission, Shaw and Reggie will be caught in a deadly duel of nerve and wits. Hitchcockian in its intimate buildup of suspense and filled with the remarkable characters, breathtaking plot turns, and blockbuster finale that are David Baldacci's hallmarks, DELIVER US FROM EVIL will be one of the most gripping thrillers of the year.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Equal parts Hitchcock and James Bond, it’s the perfect literary cocktail...One of Baldacci’s best.”

    Richmond Times-Dispatch

  • “The book is an excellent, groping, suspenseful, and exciting novel, with interesting characters with whom we can identify...The novel is easy to read.”

    Large Print Reviews

  • “Ron McLarty comfortably handles the diverse accents and speech rhythms required to establish identifiable characters of both genders…McLarty’s command of pace and clarity of delivery allow the listener to navigate the challenges of following two separate investigations while also untangling the pathology of a war criminal and terrorist. McLarty’s subtle emotional intensity is particularly compelling as he presents horrifying scenes without theatrics…[A] satisfying audio experience.”

    AudioFile

  • “This is a very clever novel, and full marks go to Baldacci for pulling off an especially difficult type of story—one in which neither of the central characters knows entirely what’s going on, while the reader is omniscient. It’s a lot of fun watching the two scope each other out, trying to determine whether the other is a threat (even as their mutual attraction grows). We become intensely involved in the story, wishing we could step inside the book and clue its two protagonists into what’s going on. The only problem—for fans of Shaw, anyway—is that, in Reggie, Baldacci has created such an interesting and engaging character that he might have made Shaw redundant.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 6/28/2017

    " The second book in the series. Great action story, nice bit of pathos. Third book in the series, if he writes it, should be really good, i hope. English accents were a bit funny by the narrator, but that happens now and again. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy | 2/19/2014

    " One word: awful. I don't know what's wrong with Baldacci, but this is the second of his last two books that have been truly bad. I always admired Baldacci for knowing how to expertly walk the line between having a compelling, suspenseful story, and having lots of graphic violence. With this novel he has crossed the line into gratuitous violence without a real purpose, and that really adds nothing to the story. The guy was a bad guy, a serious torturer, we get it...move on! Unnecessary. And the ending? Are you serious? Guy "causes" harm to girl because of his work, guy cuts off girl...I feel like we've been here before, yes? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlie | 2/9/2014

    " It was very interesting. I plan on reading it again in a year or two to pick up anything that I missed this time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 1/30/2014

    " Enjoyed every bit of it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ksafford | 1/19/2014

    " Just starting so we'll see. Pretty Good! I think I'll try another of his. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Frances Fuller | 1/17/2014

    " What a downer, unbelievable characters, violence, and an unhappy ending. I usually love Baldacci, but not this one. I don't care what happens with the hero in the future, and the women, could he have made them more gullible, or stupid? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chantelle Paiva | 1/14/2014

    " Meh....Got better toward the end "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Agathon | 12/30/2013

    " Another excellent title from Baldacci. If only this series were moe extensive. Characters develop, plots twist... DB knows how to engage a reader. Somehow I read this one before the first in the series, so now I must go back in time. Can't wait to see what happens previous. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon Peak | 12/26/2013

    " One scene was too graphic for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 12/20/2013

    " good, like this better than his camel club series "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 B.J. Peterson | 11/20/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daryl | 11/15/2013

    " A good read, although typical of the genre. There weren't too many unexpected twists however it held my interest to the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha | 11/7/2013

    " Just finished this book. As usual, it is a good mystery story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rich Van Ollefen | 11/7/2013

    " I'm definitely going to keep reading this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat Murray | 4/4/2013

    " I was not impressed with this book, that received rave reviews from critics. The book was entirely to slow. I will give the writer credit it had a great ending. I have read some others of Baldacci's novels and will check him out again, but I will not read this love story again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Hatch | 12/24/2012

    " Fast paced and easy to read. Good book but I figured it out before the end of the book, that was disappointing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia Allen | 12/19/2012

    " One of Baldacci's better books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randy Elrod | 11/29/2012

    " Fun adventure! Doesn't hurt that much of it occurs in Provence. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karen | 8/13/2012

    " I found it a little too much of a combination of formula mystery + overly evil "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 6/13/2012

    " This one has a lot of intrigue, but I just don't like the Shaw series as well as the Camel Club series. It's still a good book with a lot of twists and turns. I can only hope that nazi and stalin criminals would suffer that same fate as the characters in this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Tucker | 4/30/2012

    " Finally finished this book, had to renew it three times cause I was working on others at the same time. So happy the bad guy got it in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 1/4/2012

    " Good book - a medium David Balducci book. Where I normally can't wait for the next Baldacci book- this one did not leave me with that feeling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bekah | 1/3/2012

    " Nothing special. Just one of those fast reads that are really entertaining as you're reading, but easily forgotten after. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hapzydeco | 10/26/2011

    " Over-the-top characters and unconceivable actions, but new character - Regina "Reggie" Campion - makes the read worthwhile. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn | 7/10/2011

    " Another exciting book from David Baldacci!! As always, I enjoyed the story, but I was not too happy with the ending. Perhaps Baldacci will write another book in this series--one that will have a happier ending for Shaw. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robert Giambo | 6/27/2011

    " I have read many books by this author most of which I have really enjoyed. This is not one of the best. Baldacci is not good at doing British "aristocratic" spies - should stick to Americans. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 6/19/2011

    " Not my favorite of his books but still fun to read. The plot was a bit hard to accept but setting that aside I read the book pretty quickly. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carol Ann | 6/18/2011

    " Not very good, too much description and the bad guy should have been dealt with in a more timely fashion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianne | 6/14/2011

    " Good plot,but it kind of fizzled at the end, as in lots of build-up, ending didn't balance it out. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Deb | 6/12/2011

    " Not the same as other Baldacci books I've read. Disappointing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 6/11/2011

    " This was an easy read. Good for the bus. I didn't like the ending but it was still pretty suspenseful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leah | 6/8/2011

    " I listen to David Baldacci's books on MP3 or CD. The narrator is awesome! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don | 6/4/2011

    " Another great Baldacci thriller. Feel free to skip the part where the terrorist is tortured. It's very graphic and you don't learn anything of importance to the plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosemary | 6/1/2011

    " Really good! Better even than book #1 in the series which doesn't often happen. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 5/24/2011

    " Don't think I'll be reading any more Baldacci. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dad | 5/23/2011

    " Typical Baldacci thriller. His detail about the Evil was a little too vivid at times. "
