Light-weight filler from Baldacci
on 27 May 2010
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'.
