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??" ( )

Should have read The Whole Truth first; however, starting it next. Waller a Canadian businessman (horrible man who sells children into prostitution, plus many other things) with many enemies. Shaw is out to track him down and at the same time Reggie is out to find him as well. Waller is on vacation in Provence and pursues Reggie. Reggie (not one of my favorite characters) and Shaw team up (among other things) to bring him down. In the meantime Shaw is dealing with his past and two women which he cannot completely forget (Annie and Katie). A weird ending. Seems Shaw always winds up sleeping with someone. As usual, Ron McLarty does an excellent job with the audio. ( )

Gave up at Chapter 67. Don't care how it turns out.
That will teach me to stick to non-ficton.
At least it is well written as opposed to some books I've suffered through. ( )

Two organizational trying to exterminate the same man bring Reggie and Bill together in this fast moving international chase. ( )

Invincible spy/assassin Shaw returns for more "wet work" except this time he gets more than he bargained for when if turns out another team of killers for hire has targeted the same person he has. A good easy to read thriller. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446564087, Hardcover)

David Baldacci-the #1 bestselling author of The Whole Truth and First Family-returns with his most surprising, heart-stopping, and timely thriller to date . . .

DELIVER US FROM EVIL

Evan Waller is a monster. He has built a fortune from his willingness to buy and sell anything . . . and anyone. In search of new opportunities, Waller has just begun a new business venture: one that could lead to millions of deaths all over the globe.

On Waller's trail is Shaw, the mysterious operative from The Whole Truth, who must prevent Waller from closing his latest deal. Shaw's one chance to bring him down will come in the most unlikely of places: a serene, bucolic village in Provence.

But Waller's depravity and ruthlessness go deeper than Shaw knows. And now, there is someone else pursuing Waller in Provence-Reggie Campion, an agent for a secret vigilante group headquartered in a musty old English estate-and she has an agenda of her own.

Hunting the same man and unaware of each other's mission, Shaw and Reggie will be caught in a deadly duel of nerve and wits. Hitchcockian in its intimate buildup of suspense and filled with the remarkable characters, breathtaking plot turns, and blockbuster finale that are David Baldacci's hallmarks, DELIVER US FROM EVIL will be one of the most gripping thrillers of the year.
