Sean King and Michelle Maxwell return in a novel focused on national security and inter-agency rivalry.
This book is disturbing on so many levels. It points out our nation’s vulnerability when those protecting it are more concerned with protecting their own turf than protecting the nation.
The current fiscal cliff debacle points out the power of politics over sanity. Baldacci’s story shows the ludicrous rivalry between intelligence gathering agencies. The premise is entirely too easy to believe. One merely has to read the newspaper (Yes Virginia there really are newspapers and people who read them.) to see examples of politicians and government employees canoodling. (love that word)
The book abounds in action and thought provoking scenarios. Typical of Baldacci, just when you think you know what is going on, you find out you don’t!
This was a page turner, barn burner, read under the covers with a flash light, keep you up all night book.
I highly recommend it.
