Mystery & Suspense • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

A hired gun named Shaw finds himself involved in an impending war, deliberately incited through an elaborate fabrication created by a specialized PR firm hired by a large defense contractor. When his fiancée is killed in an incident relating to the ruse, Shaw focuses on finding those responsible--and the truth about what's going on. Ron McLarty delivers the consistent narration the listener depends on to follow Baldacci's plot twists. McLarty's best voices include that of the agency boss, whose tough-guy tone comes through loud and clear. Also well done is Nicolas Creel, the billionaire behind the scheme, as well as various female and foreign characters. Baldacci's plot and McLarty's voices guide the listener as Shaw crusades for the truth. M.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
