I’ve decided that I’ll post the books I read as I travel around. I’m currently reading a David Baldacci novel titled Deliver us from evil.
You’ll quickly realise I like books that are full of action. If there’s guns and things blowing up. It’s probably worth looking at. If there’s spies involved, awesome. Oh and there’s always a beautiful woman involved :p.
I’ve heard that there’s a book before this one with the same Shaw character in it. I’ll have to find it I think. So far (I’m halfway), this book has been turning it’s own pages all the way though.
In South America a wealthy ninety-six year old man reads a book late into the night. Within an hour, he is dead, the secrets of his past starkly revealed.
Six months later, in Provence, Shaw – the shadowy operative from “The Whole Truth” – witnesses the murder of a mysterious man, his body left lifeless at the bottom of a pool. Shaw barely escapes the incident himself; and with a new partner in tow, begins to realize that there has to be another organization at work that rivals his own in secrecy…
Meanwhile, half a world away, journalist Katie James is working on a story of international importance. But shortly after meeting with a potential inside source she is smuggled unconscious onto an aeroplane, headed to an undisclosed destination.
In the days to come, Katie and Shaw will be reunited in a deadly dual of nerve and wits against a surprising, secretive enemy, and lead around the world at a breakneck pace. Filled with the breathtaking plot turns and remarkable characters that only David Baldacci can deliver, this is the most explosive thriller of the year.
