I’m a late arrival to the party when it comes to David Baldacci’s books. This is his second book and my second of his that I’ve read. This is also my 4th book for the TBR Challenge. I thoroughly enjoyed this complicated twisty turning thriller. Sidney Archer is a wife, mother and attorney who finds herself smack in the middle of a dangerous mystery. The plane her husband was scheduled to take has crashed, but beyond dealing with her grief over his death, she finds herself searching for answers. Was her husband responsible for the sabotage of the plane? why is she learning all sorts of things that he’d apparently lied to her about? Who can she trust?
FBI agent Lee Sawyer, charged with the investigation of the plane sabotage finds his case expanding and soon he is asking the same questions as Sid Archer.
Some of the technology and internet discussion in the book is a bit dated – 11 years is forever in terms of changes in that realm, but that didn’t keep me from enjoying the book. This one was definitely a page turner and seemed to be much shorter than the nearly 700 pages it was, because it moved so fast and kept me wanting to ‘just finish this one more chapter’.
