I love this author. Strong men AND strong women. In my opinion, this is his best story. I couldn't put it down and read it way too fast. When reading a good story, I never want it to end. This was one of those. Baldacci includes just enough of the technical without it being boring. He doesn't write long, dull descriptive parts. His descriptive writing is integral to the story and not just fill. A must read for Baldacci fans and a great introduction for those who are new to the author. His Wish You Well Foundation, touches my heart and I admire his "giving back".
