Book Description

11 Nov 2010

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars `Does a man need a reason to pursue justice?' 1 July 2010
By Jennifer Cameron-Smith TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Evan Waller has built a fortune through his willingness to buy and sell anything to anyone. In the present, his activities have drawn the attention of the enigmatic Shaw (introduced in The Whole Truth) and the shadowy organisation he represents. At the same time, Waller's past has been investigated by a secret vigilante group based in the UK and their agent, Reggie Campion is also seeking him.

Independently of each other, and for very different reasons, Shaw and Campion arrive in a small village in Provence in pursuit of Waller. Both Shaw and Campion are encumbered by their pasts and while the Campion story is covered in this novel, relevant aspects of the Shaw story are in `The Whole Truth'. While you don't need to have read `The Whole Truth' to follow this story, the character of Shaw and his reactions will make more sense if you have.

This is fast-paced, not always believable fiction. There are some detailed scenes of torture and violence, which are not for the squeamish. These scenes serve to paint a detailed picture of the bad guys involved, just in case a reader needs additional reinforcement.

Overall, while I found this an interesting page-turning escapist read I didn't enjoy it as much as `The Whole Truth'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light-weight filler from Baldacci 27 May 2010
By Clive
Format:Hardcover
If Baldacci's books were lined up, this would certainly be called a `filler'. In comparison with Stone, Annabelle, or Mace, I did not really enjoy Shaw in `The Whole Truth', and the truth is he doesn't make such a classic character in `Deliver us from evil'. Baldacci seems to be following the commercialism stream trailblazed by Patterson, coming out with quick books that whilst enjoyable at a surface level, are light on characters, detailed plot, or real suspense and thrills. This is a light-weight book from what was once called a `Master story-teller'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gruesome Villain within an Unsatisfying Plot 6 Jun 2010
By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
"The faithful man has perished from the earth,
And there is no one upright among men.
They all lie in wait for blood;
Every man hunts his brother with a net.
That they may successfully do evil with both hands--
The prince asks for gifts,
The judge seeks a bribe,
And the great man utters his evil desire;
So they scheme together." -- Micah 7:2-3 (NKJV)

What's to be done with monsters? David Baldacci offers two alternatives in this book about eliminating evil: Leave them alone if they aren't harming you or erase them at any cost. He stacks the deck in favor of the latter solution.

If you are looking for a philosophical novel, this isn't it. The book's strength is its as compelling a portrayal of a horrifying villain as I remember in recent years. If you are a sensitive person, this book will upset you . . . as it's intended to do.

The portrayal of Evan Waller loses its punch in the book's second half, and the plot seems anemic without it. What happens is pretty predictable and not that satisfying.

Shaw, the main character from The Whole Truth, is portrayed in very superficial terms. He barely exists as a character aside from his guilt and skills.

Unless you are very devoted to reading David Baldacci's books, I think you could easily skip reading this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Deliver us from Deliver us from Evil 28 Jan 2011
By ITAlex
Format:Paperback
This is not his best, that's for sure. I am no academic and couldn't explain about depth, plot and character development. What I do now is that, overall, it was a pretty dull read. A couple of mistakes on his part (Goya's "2nd of May" painting was named as "3rd of May" and that Goya's "Maja Desnuda" was banned by the Spanish inquisition) made me suspect that Baldacci is having others write for him (???). If not, he is getting sloppy. I will not speculate about angry publishers, family problems or dead pets. This is one to avoid. If you already are a Baldacci fan, like myself, cross your fingers and hope that this is just a fluke. If you are new to Baldacci, read The Winner first to get a feeling for his kind of work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Thriller 11 Aug 2013
By Wendy Jones TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
It has been some time since I have read a Baldacci Book and I had forgotten just how good he is. Shaw is back in this book and he is hunting down Evan Waller who has links to Islamic Terrorism in that he is selling them nuclear warheads. However, there is another group after Waller for completely different reasons. There are two stories running through this book but Baldacci weaves them together like the master story teller he is. There is something for everyone in this book and it keeps you guessing throughout. The ending is tense and explosive and keeps you guessing. The characters in this book are expertly drawn and each of them seems real. Although this is the second book in a series, it can be read as a standalone. There is just enough of the backstory included that it informs, without turning off those who have read the first book. This is a first class, fast paced thriller and I would highly recommend it as I would all David Baldacci's books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual plot 18 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As good as the other Baldacci books I've read; fast moving & gripping, with the unusual premise of a vigilante group killing off evil people that the law can't or won't deal with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping Story 5 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a big fan of David Baldacci. He never fails to grab my interest with a well written absorbing plot and carefully delineated characters. Shaw is despatched to Provence to track down an ex KGB officer, notorious for atrocities. Indeed we get a flavour of what he was capable of when, as his alter ego Evan Waller, he encounters the last Afghan involved in a plot to blow him up. (Not for the faint hearted this bit!) Shaw's relationship as Bill Young with Jane Collins who is really Reggie is a bit wooden but then he and she are both not what they seem to each other. I recommend this to any Baldacci fans and any one who is keen on adventure stories but has yet to try his work.
