I have to give this one star - there isn't an option for none.

It starts badly and then goes downhill.

Sadly, this was the worst book I have read for a long time. I enjoyed the first two Robies but this doesn't seem like a Baldacci at all. It gives me the impression that my favourite author has gone down the James Patterson route of lending his name to a ghost writer, in this case a first-time author.

It also seems that there has been no overall editing of this book which, at nearly 600 pages, is over-long and has no continuous plot-line, merely a number of them linked only by the two main protagonists who are barely believable superheroes. Sorry, I mean 'unbelievable'. Some bits of background information are repeated, for example the Korean killer's history of being brought up in a concentration camp, as if the author expects the reader to have no powers of retention.

The depiction of the President of the USA as a semi-moron and of the head of the CIA as a petty vengeful character has often been part of the opinion of the characters such as King and Maxwell in Baldacci books but in this one it is almost a given fact and is totally over-done. (I know many people think that, but that is just politics - no-one like these characters would reach such positions in the real world).

In past Baldaccis there has always been a good deal of exciting action and long such sequences. In this there is virtually none of it, in particular the 'rescue' from the concentration camp is laughably short and almost over before it has begun.

The other thing that is lacking is the humour - I for one (I know others don't) have always liked the humour and the debunking of pomposity in Baldacci books.

A real good plot to keep the pages turning. It flies along at great pace though it jumps around the various characters to maintain the story. Very good.

The tension builds like a storm so this is the true meaning of a page turner.
By using the idea that enemies are not always right or wrong the author keeps the reader guessing who will be the next victim
An entertaining whilst an enlightening read
One big ego could be the reason for world destruction but from which political credo?
