A mysterious high-profile homicide in the nation's capital collides with the dark side of national security in David Baldacci's new, heart-stopping thriller.


Mason "Mace" Perry was a firebrand cop on the D.C. police force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime. She lost everything-her badge, her career, her freedom-and spent two years in prison. Now she's back on the outside and focused on one mission: to be a cop once more. Her only shot to be a true blue again is to solve a major case on her own, and prove she has the right to wear the uniform. But even with her police chief sister on her side, she has to work in the shadows: A vindictive U.S. attorney is looking for any reason to send Mace back behind bars. Then Roy Kingman enters her life.

Roy is a young lawyer who aided the poor until he took a high-paying job at a law firm in Washington. Mace and Roy meet after he discovers the dead body of a female partner at the firm. As they investigate the death, they start uncovering surprising secrets from both the private and public world of the nation's capital.

Soon, what began as a fairly routine homicide takes a terrifying and unexpected turn-into something complex, diabolical, and possibly lethal.

The only sentence that I liked in this 640 pages book was, "all she wanted was to be a true blue." Yes, Mace Perry comes out of prison where she served two years for a crime she believe she didn't commit. After that the book goes downhill all the way. Beth the police chief is Mace's sister and constantly cautions Mace to keep her hands clean. Mace, of course, does not listen to her as she feels that she can get reinstated in the police force by solving a murder case. The scenes described are totally unbelievable and don't produce the desired effect. All in all a very tiring read - not worth the effort.

I wasn't a big fan of the Camel Club series so I enjoyed this detour from it with new characters. I found one of the main characters irritating but that's probably because of her inmature behaviour and childish actions. Aside from that, interesting plot, fast pace, and good read

Definitely another SUSPENCE from Baldacci !
Could it be the first of a new Series ?

Clumsy prose; not always believable; but some nice details, fast-paced, and fairly entertaining

Written well enough that I read through to the end, although somewhat predictable...redeeming her reputation, government conspiracy etc

This was a good and simple read. I really enjoyed the story and characters. I've never read a Baldacci book before, but thought that his writing was very choppy except for when it came to the cop informative parts. Overall, it was good.
