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

  • McLarty's subtle emotional intensity is particularly compelling as he presents horrifying scenes without theatrics. AudioFile
  • “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.”

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarena Perrone | 2/13/2014

    " So far a very entertaining book. Like the idea of an agency that exists to wipe out mass murderers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick | 2/3/2014

    " I enjoyed The Whole Truth more than this. Deliver was a good read, but pretty predictible. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Vickie | 1/24/2014

    " The title said it all and I wasn't in the mood for that much evil. I skipped the middle and went straight to the end to see who lived and who died. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Monroe | 1/1/2014

    " Great book! I love the twists and turns and am looking forward to the conclusion as we have reached the climax of the story! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ellen | 1/1/2014

    " Lots of graphic violence, not my favorite. Don't think I like this Shaw (from The Whole Truth, which I didn't care for and didn't finish) character as much as Baldacci's other story lines. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Vickie Southall | 1/1/2014

    " I've read better books by this author but do enjoy Shaw's character. Maybe it's time to give Baldacci a break. This book was passed to me on a recommendation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniella | 12/25/2013

    " The last two Baldacci books have not kept my interest. This book was very predictable and not suspense filled (as his previous writings are). I think he is writing to many books to fast!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christi | 12/18/2013

    " Loved the ebook extras, inside the office and the process of putting a book together. A peek inside the mind of a killer, very chilling. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Xavier | 11/26/2013

    " Shaw makes a comeback... Pretty much on the usual lines... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jewel | 11/16/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bonnie | 9/28/2013

    " Way over the top in gratuitous violence?...don't know why I finished it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dad | 9/19/2013

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ronald E. | 8/24/2013

    " Shaw chases a bad guy and finds that another group is chasing this former Nazi. Double the danger as these groups join forces to pursue this deadly enemy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 6/14/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mequel | 5/23/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 George Saunders | 3/14/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karthik | 3/9/2013

    " Reading the other reviews, maybe I did a good thing by making tis one of my first Baldaccis. I completely enjoyed it. If this books disappointed seasoned Baldacci fans, I can only wait to read the ones they actually enjoyed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 3/2/2013

    " This was the second installment of "Shaw". The first I thought was really good, but the second was amazing. It goes into great depth with the main characters, which I love, and it sets up for a third book. Great read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 2/23/2013

    " I'm a fan of the author and wasn't disappointed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cheryl | 1/22/2013

    " Strange combination of over descriptive passages of torture (couldn't read them) and the clothing choices of the main characters (who cares?). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheyenne | 12/31/2012

    " I think the reason I enjoy reading his books so much is because he writes entertaining mysteries without too much unnecessary stuff. I never feel tempted to skim pages to keep the story moving. This one was a great fast read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Deb Owens | 12/1/2012

    " 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 Thx | 7/13/2012

    " Good geo-political-military spy thriller. Could have been a future episode of "24"? or a mission on the game "Modern Warfare"? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark Bunton | 3/13/2012

    " Great Book!!! I hope that Baldacci puts out another one in this series, as the first two have been excellent reads that have been hard to put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianne | 9/4/2011

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

  • 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. "

  • 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. "
