Quotes & Awards

  • “Baldacci brings an insider's savvy to his tale.”

    New York Times Books Review

  • “He’s hit the jackpot again...Baldacci pushes the pace pedal to the floor and takes the turns on two wheels.”

    New York Daily News

  • “The action is explosive. Readers will barely have time to catch their breath.”

    People

  • “Revenge is a powerful motivator, and as a dominant theme here it makes for an enthralling thriller as Baldacci seamlessly weaves in several plots...Reading Baldacci is like listening to a flawlessly preformed symphony.”

    Forbes

  • “Baldacci does an excellent job of setting the scene and creating complex characters. [A] gripping page turner.”

    Associated Press

  • “Baldacci’s intricately woven plotlines, well-developed characters, fast-paced action, and surprise ending will leave readers satisfied and wanting more. A sequel worthy of its predecessors; highly recommended for all fiction collections.”

    Library Journal

  • “Ron McLarty does an excellent job of capturing the personalities and accents of the various characters. Recommended.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Baldacci can do this stuff in his sleep now...Entertaining.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Baldacci...really knows how to spin a yarn, and with McLarty he gets a narrator who adds emotional depth to his characters without slowing down the breathless pace of his prose. McLarty uses his distinctive, almost avuncular delivery to excellent purpose in this action-packed thriller...But his art becomes more apparent as he effectively captures the voices of Annabelle, Finn, and a gallery of other characters, including a bitter elderly Russian woman and a world-weary Irish-American man, providing them all a dimension.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

  • “Baldacci’s adept character development coupled with deft narration from Ron McLarty makes for an enjoyable listening experience. Once again, Baldacci creates unique parallel stories that evolve and eventually intertwine. The expert McLarty gives clear and recognizable voices to all the characters. In particular, his consistent accents for the old Russian woman and for the acerbic Irish man capture the story’s emotions and help bring home the plot...Hidden secrets, political espionage, and personal trust all clash in this fast-paced story.”
