Quotes & Awards

  • “Baldacci delivers twists and turns, characters, and quick pacing in this thriller with a global backdrop.”

    Boomer Magazine 

  • “Ron McLarty’s gruff voice enhances this fast-moving thriller as he takes the listener through barrages of deadly assaults featuring gunfire, knives, bombs, and hacksaws. He portrays Shaw, the unwilling secret agent, as weary yet tough. Nicolas Creel, who needs a good war to help sagging profits, comes across as appropriately cerebral and coldhearted...The sound track is comparable to a terrific cinematic score: darkly foreboding or quietly romantic when appropriate, raising this audio to an art form and enhancing the already gripping tale.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

  • “Ron McLarty’s excellent reading captures the excitement and suspense of Baldacci’s story and allows the listener to hear the unique personalities of each character. Highly recommended for all public libraries.”

    Library Journal (audio review)

  • A #1 New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Tanna | 2/13/2014

    " This book as pretty predictable, but I still liked the story. There is a lot of action and would probably make a good movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Julia | 2/12/2014

    " This is readable, although the characters are wooden and lifeless, and if you have anything more than a tourist's knowledge of London, Edinburgh and Paris, Baldacci's descriptions of those places will make you cringe! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Craig | 2/4/2014

    " The main character A Shaw is kind of cross between Mitch Rapp and Jack Reacher. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Tim | 1/27/2014

    " The second half of this novel is by far more exciting and interesting. Therefore, 9 of 10 stars. "
