Lots of action, but a little too implausible
on 9 September 2014
Ok, so we like our action heroes to be tough, to outfox the bad guys with superior intelligence and strength. We like plots to be convoluted as the pieces fall into place and good triumphs over evil. We like bullets flying, bad guys taken down and our strong heroes saving the day!
Whilst this book had all of that, I think this book had too many improbable scenarios that don't really stand up to scrutiny. I won't go into details as I wouldn't want to give away the plot, but in the end I was just left thinking "Really?!"
I've read lots of Baldacci's - tho I tend to be a cheapskate and get them when Kindle has an offer - I like a rollicking good action thriller, but I found I had to suspend disbelief a little too often in this one.
