I found this second A. Shaw story a bit more gruesome than the first but that was due to the villain that was being pursued.

The most interesting aspect of the book, for me, was that Shaw wasn't the only one in pursuit. Another group, out of London, had different but equally strong reasons for pursuing this villain.

It's very touch and go as to who will dominate... the bad guy they're after knows no end to his cruelty.

Katie James, from book 1, resurfaces... in a very dangerous way.

this is my first book of Baldacci. this book cannot be categorized as Mystery at all, because there is no mysterious thing here. the story is predictable and ends as you might predict when you start. although in comparison with the books titles as Thriller, this book does not make you feel as Thriller book, like the novels written by Tess Gerritsen, Harlan Coben, etc. the story has been told in liner without any considerable peaks, something you expect to see when you want to read a Thriller book. the author did not emphasize on the peaks and it feels as if you are listening to regular news. the scenario is about couple of groups that want to hunt/capture a former killer, but their plans and what the most part of the story is about, are very basic and regular. the story becomes a little bit not-so-boring in the last 1/4 of the book but is is not enough to make you satisfied.
the story says that there are 2 group of people that want to hunt the killer. at the end, where the killer asks them to come to his place, bunch of people from both of the groups come together to go there. except Shaw and Janie, others does not have any motivation to go along with them to "die"! even the whole group has not any plan to face with the killer. this is very funny, because these groups are underground and professional people, as called by the author and were successful in their missions. so you expect to see a plan for this. but these people travels to the killer's place to run like a mouse and being hunted. hahaha its funny, but not when you want to read a Thriller book!!
as a result, the story has predictable, very basic scenario and this made me to pay more attention to the Baldacci, if I want to read any other book of him. ( )

This story contains several extremely detailed scenes of torture and violence. It is not for the squeamish or individuals with a weak stomach or vivid imagination. The focus of this story is the battle between good and evil. If the prospective reader has not read "The Whole Truth"", I recommend that be read first to get the detailed back story of Shaw; in addition, one of the key incidents in that book which changed Shaw's life irrevocably is an integral part of this story and thus reading this book would destroy much of the emotional impact of that story if read later. Shaw and Frank develop a plan to capture Evan Waller, a totally immoral Canadian businessman who is both a trafficker in human beings and has a new sideline of selling nuclear material to terrorists. They plan to neutralize his omnipresent bodyguards and kidnap him while he is on a rare holiday in Provence. Meanwhile, a parallel operation is planned by a secret unofficial rogue vigilante group operating out of England who hunt down and execute unapprehended war criminals, and which knows that Waller is actually a deep cover identity for a Ukranian war criminal who faked his own death and disappeared decades ago. This group includes several members with various talents; however, the point person for this op will be Regina "Reggie" Campion, a young woman of steely determination the reason for which is only gradually revealed. Of course, the plans and motives of each operative are unknown to the other. Thus, there are three intertwined stories within the one novel. First, the backstory of Reggie and her team and their attempt to capture and execute Waller in a certain prescribed manner which will make him aware of the reason for his death while maintaining the invisibility of their organization. Second, the parallel efforts of Shaw and his group to capture Waller and achieve their goal of diverting the nuclear material and neutralizing the terrorists' plan. Third, and equally intriguing, the gradual realization on the part of both Shaw and Reggie that the carefully constructed covers of each are just that and that they both have some relationship to Waller's activities and how they attempt to carefully work around each other despite a mutual attraction.

I was not a fan of this book although I do like many of David Baldacci's books. The two star rating is a matter of personal opinion and no reflection on the writing. I am sure there are many people that will throughly enjoy this book, I was just not one of them. I think I will stick with the King & Maxwell series and the John Puller series. Those are excellent.

This book brings back A. Shaw, Katie James and Frank Wells from The Whole Truth plus adds a new set of characters. The agency Shaw works for and the group that Reggie works for are both going after the same man but for different reasons. Shaw's op gets pulled when the nuclear angle disappears. Reggie and her cohorts attempt their plan but almost get killed for their trouble. Shaw forces them to team up with him to take down the bad guy. ( )

I expected this to be a meatier book. While well written the plot twists are awkward if somewhat predictable. The characters, while artfully described right down to their attire, lack substance. I kept reading with the hope it would get better. Portions that were meant to startle or shock lacked impact and simply moved the story along without making a great impression. When I reached the end all I thought was "That's it? Really? Are you serious??" ( )
