“Dick, I need a war.”

Nicolas Creel is a man on a mission. He heads up the world’s largest defense contractor, The Ares Corporation. Dick Pender is the man Creel retains as his “perception manager,” bringing Creel’s company to even more riches by manipulating international conflicts. But Creel may have an even grander plan in mind.

Shaw, a man with no first name and a truly unique past, has a different agenda. Reluctantly doing the bidding of a secret multinational intelligence agency, he travels the globe to keep it safe and peaceful.

Willing to do anything to get back to the top of her profession, Katie James is a journalist who has just gotten the break of a lifetime: the chance to interview the sole survivor of a massacre that has left every nation stunned.

In this terrifying, global thriller, these characters’ lives will collide head-on as a series of events is set in motion that could change the world as we know it. An utterly spellbinding story that feels all too real, The Whole Truth delivers all the twists and turns, emotional drama, unforgettable characters, and can’t-put-it-down pacing that readers expect from David Baldacci—and still goes beyond anything he’s written before.

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)

  • “McLarty’s reading is accomplished, and his precise tone alternates between quiet and measured and furious and fast paced. His strong characterizations make it easy to distinguish the players, and an echo tone effectively signals Shaw’s memories.”

    Booklist

  • “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

    " An entertaining story about faked Russian aggression that almost started WWIII...almost hits a little too close to home given what's going on in Georgia right now. "
