David Baldacci, the number one NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author keep’s you glued to your chair as the novel keeps progressing. The characters, as the story proceeds, become real to feel.

Another masterpiece from the number one best-selling author DAVID BALDACCI
My Opinion: The work of David Baldacci has never disappointed me. Every time I pick his book, I am always excited to know at which level my curiosity will rise. The way the characters are presented makes me feel that I am one of the part of it. As the story moves ahead, it gets difficult to keep the book down. Last part of the novel I finished in a single sitting, keeping all my important works aside and without caring about the time late in the night.
The way story starts with two different lines and then merge to take a new path. The one which is tough to predict. Surely, a nail-biting novel it is.
