Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! About the book: It’s a standalone I bought a while back. First impressions: I’ve read some of Baldacci’s novels in the past, so I had an idea of what to expect. The author tends to start off with a scene that sets up the rest of the story. I didn’t know what was going on, which made me want to find out more. Summary: An assassination attempt goes wrong. An FBI agent dies. Characters run to save their lives. Characters: It took me a while to get behind some of the characters. By the end, I found myself rooting for the good guys of course, especially Lee Adams, a private investigator. Baldacci does a good job creating likeable and unlikeable characters as well. He’s great at making flawed characters. Everyone is imperfect in some way with either a problematic past, a sticky situation, or both. But because we’re dealing with fiction, the characters’ traits can obviously be exaggerated. “So maybe I do what I do because the sum of the world’s tragedies outweighs its happiness.” Conflict: Good versus bad. More specifically a CIA vs. FBI tale. Writing: I’ve read Zero Day, The Forgotten, The Escape, Last Man Standing, The Guilty, and The Winner by Baldacci. He’s written some great books. Saving Faith is good but not the best one in my opinion. It’s still an entertaining, fun read. Probably not the most realistic, however. He tells an interesting story by adding enough suspense to keep you turning the pages. All in all, the sentences are short and the chapters aren’t too long. So it makes for a fast, enjoyable reading experience. Final thoughts: I will say I liked the ending (last 100 pages or so) the most. It ties up a lot of loose ends while answering most of the questions posed throughout the novel. If you’re looking for a summer thriller, be sure to check out Saving Faith if you haven’t done so already.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not terribly good, but not terribly bad either Started off well, but lost steam in the middle and the ending was awful. Disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Saving Faith I was not terribly "taken" by the writing style of this author, nor of the story itself. It seemed to take a dreadfully long time to be told, and spent far too much time in the details of absolutely every little thing, not a good way to tell a tale in my view. An overall would have been fine in a lot of cases and the story still to be told with an appreciation for the understanding. I am not a particular fan of political stories and certainly a great deal less interested where it is American in content. I guess this is an american story for americans! I would not recommend it as a good read, let alone of interest to the Canadian audience. Not my style, and I would hesitate to pick up another of Mr.Baldacci's books.

From Our Editors

Danny Buchanan and Faith Lockhart are the two most powerful lobbyists ever to cruise Capitol Hill. They can guarantee results mainly because their money has a real knack for making it into the pockets of those with power. But when the CIA busts Danny, he is forced to go undercover to uncover even more of the corruption. This inevitably leads to a professional conflict, as Faith is right in his line of fire. All this while the FBI is closing in, preparing for a political showdown that will forever change Washington. Saving Faith is intricately constructed, giving readers the sense of reality and drama with just a hint of power.
