The Target by David Baldacci

Will Robie and Jessica Reel bounce from one action filled assignment to the next with a culmination in Nantucket protecting the first lady and her family.

Testosterone filled does not begin to describe this book.   First the most elegant mayhem is estrogen powered not testosterone filled.   Baldacci has no problem providing superlative female protagonist and antagonist.   In some ways this reminded me more of a James Patterson short chapter no time to breathe book.   A series of short vignettes which are mixed into a recipe for a final cake of violence.

Baldacci provides insight into the motivation of his characters.  They become three dimensional people as opposed to cardboard cutouts.   The characters are much more believable and likeable due to his style.

This is a quick read mostly due to my inability to put the darn thing down.

I highly recommend it.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
