Rated 4 out of 5 by from very enjoyable Wow! Just wow! This novel engaged me on multiple levels. I loved the variety of components that made up this novel. Suspense, action, intrigue, and science all make their way into it. Baldacci’s intricate writing really enticed me. Not only was I caught up in the action of the tale, I was also trying to unravel the mystery and was completely smitten with the science. The characters were fantastic. Even though this isn’t the first novel of the series, Baldacci develops his man characters in such a manner that readers can get to know them from here, without rehashing past events. They were remarkably well developed individuals, so real and human and complex. I found myself drawn to them. I also enjoyed the variety of secondary characters that we get to know. The diversity of cast really allows you to see all off the sides of the story. I’ll admit that this was my first foray into the world of Baldacci’s writing but it definitely won’t be my last. I was completely enamoured with this tale. He had me hooked every step of the way.
