Library Journal Review

Baldacci's 24th novel introduces agent Will Robie into his best-selling world of crime and suspense. Will, a U.S. government assassin, finds himself fleeing from his own agency after a seemingly routine mission goes bad. While on the run, he forms an unlikely alliance with a 14-year-old girl whose parents have been brutally murdered. Together, they must stay one step ahead of the people trying to kill them and attempt to put together the pieces of this nasty entanglement. VERDICT The action is fast and nonstop, and the narration by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy is crisp and realistic, switching between characters with ease and keeping perfect pace with the ever-quickening plot. Along with Baldacci's readers, this will be of interest to Michael Connelly and John Grisham fans.
