Mason "Mace" Perry was a firebrand cop on the D.C. police force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime. She lost everything-her badge, her career, her freedom-and spent two years in prison. Now she's back on the outside and focused on one mission: to be a cop once more. Her only shot to be a true blue again is to solve a major case on her own, and prove she has the right to wear the uniform. But even with her police chief sister on her side, she has to work in the shadows: A vindictive U.S. attorney is looking for any reason to send Mace back behind bars. Then Roy Kingman enters her life.

Roy is a young lawyer who aided the poor until he took a high-paying job at a law firm in Washington. Mace and Roy meet after he discovers the dead body of a female partner at the firm. As they investigate the death, they start uncovering surprising secrets from both the private and public world of the nation's capital.

Soon, what began as a fairly routine homicide takes a terrifying and unexpected turn-into something complex, diabolical, and possibly lethal. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “With its full roster of slimy capital characters, [True Blue] offers dangers all its own. Another taut nail-biter.”

    Barnes & Noble editorial review

  • “[A] promising first in a new series...While Baldacci draws his characters in bright primary colors, and some of the action reaches comic book proportions, he delivers his usual intricate plotting and sets the stage nicely for highly competent Beth and impulsive, streetwise Mace to take on more bad guys.”

    Booklist

  • “Fast paced and entertaining.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A USA Today Bestseller

    " I found this book to be a bit disappointing compared to Baldacci's other efforts. There were flaws in the writing and the story took quite awhile to develop into anything. There was good character development, but sometimes I felt Mace's persona was exaggerated. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Racquel | 4/16/2011

    " I enjoyed the book. I thought that it flowed real nice and kept me on the edge of my seat. I thought the author also paid very good attention to detail. I kind of wish that there had been a better twist at the end though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherry | 4/15/2011

    " Not bad. Lots of intrigue. I like it when an author doesn't always feel there needs to be a happy ending. All along I couldn't see where all could work out right and thankfully so did Mr. Baldacci. "
