in this novel. An incident in Sean’s past has dramatically unanticipated results decades later. Those results involve the President, First Lady and several children as well as a grieving, revenge and anger filled father.
Sam Quarry is a larger than life character who inspires admiration and despair over his state of mind. The story offers conflicting feelings regarding the lengths a parent would go to protect a child. Baldacci successfully crafts a likeable villain.
Likeability which I will note has gotten me some sour response when I have suggested that likeability impacts my feelings on books. A likeable characters does not have to be the good guy. If I can’t connect to the characters then the plot better be truly masterful because for me, the character connection is paramount.
Baldacci can do it all, provide an exemplary plot and likeable characters, even the villains.
I highly recommend it.
