Fantastic book. Great action

A 'thriller' with a lot of moments of coincidence and absurdity. If you like Ron McClarty's narration he makes this silly bit of indulgence tolerable. Baldacci 'jumps a few sharks' in this book as he tries his best to create another…

They say third time is the charm, but this is three strikes and you're out. This is the third Baldacci book I've read and this one is almost as unbelievable as the others. About halfway through I decided that I didn't care. The story was…

Perception Management aspect in action makes for a great read. Current information makes one increasingly aware of how business & politics really work. Good to know

Did not put it down until it was finished. PMs are out there, and it was refreshing (and creepy) that the industry of Perception Management was told from a more sombre perspective....hints at the possibility of this in our "real" day to…

Characters seemed unrealistic, along with the storyline. However, this was an excellent thriller; it was indeed hard to put down.

This is a real page turner!! Perception management on a grand scale. Makes one think whether our perception of world events is being managed.

The second half of this novel is by far more exciting and interesting. Therefore, 9 of 10 stars.
