Description

It appeared to me that Baldacci surpassed himself in this book: the action scenes in the Grand Canyon were so colorful, visual and heated - the temperature; I could readily imagine myself there.

However, Kyf Brewer, GAH, very robotic voice and he voiced EVERY male character in pretty much the same way. You recognise that Mr Baldacci has taken inspiration from the state of world politics but in particular those in the US. Along the way she will revisit painful memories of her own, come to grips with what she is and what she might one day aspire to be. While the story begins with Atlee visiting the man she believes hurt her and abducted her sister, it shifts to the case and remains there. This is an easy to put down, but also easy to pick up read, which also has a not too subtle dig at the way some Americans don't seem to understand that Russians really have it in for America, and are not their friends.I have often classified books as spectrum as either chocolate and popcorn for pure entertainment, and Savory, meat and potatoes for literary works with great depth. I really liked the failed Olympian subplot and that she's focused on exercise to rid her demons rather than drink and drugs. Narrowly escaping death, the two now are certain that something rotten in those canyon walls besides a decaying mule. Ever since her twin sister was abducted by a notorious serial killer at age five, Atlee has spent her life hunting down those who hurt others.

But even with her experience and outlook, Atlee could not pre-empt the convoluted web she finds herself in when she begins to investigate a stabbed Grand Canyon mule and its missing rider.The rest of the story required a significant suspension of a reader's/listener's credibility particularly in regard to the alleged activities of various branches of USA armed forces, USA Homeland Security and the FBI. It started off well in the first chapter but became a big mess that was devoid of any tension but chockful of all possible action-thriller tropes possible.
