Determined to give his family the best of everything, Archer has secretly entered into a deadly game. He is about to disappear -- leaving behind a wife who must sort out his lies from his truths, an accident team that wants to know why the plane he was ticketed on crashed, and a veteran FBI agent who wants to know it all.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The book is just OK and not one of the author's best.
Great book for fans of political thrillers knowing that Baldacci has always some tricks in his pocket, like the Winner I am presently reading.
Interesting, believable characters with multiple plot twists. He also used technology, the Federal Reserve, and the FOMC in a way that added to the story without leaving the uniformed lost in the details.
I especially enjoyed how all of it tied together to an ending that made sense and with perfect timing in the great Baldacci way which is always perfect.
This is the author's second book and I am so glad that over time he has not lost what still makes him one of my favored authors.

miles out of date; and yes, some of the nice guy characters aren't particularly
attractive; and yes, this is probably not one of Baldacci's top notch stories; and
yes, you can throw all your toys out of your pram because it took you 611 pages
to find this all out!
But what I say to you all right now is.......
Tie all those criticisms up in a nice little bag and throw them out of the nearest window!
For goodness sake just sit back and enjoy this neatly paced little thriller, with its air crash,
identity swap, corporate double dealings,indistinguishable lies and truths, our hero up
to his neck in dire trouble, his wife entangled even further, and an FBI agent in a desperate
search for the truth.
Don't over-analyse this sturdy package of chase and double chase - relax and do what you're
supposed to do - enjoy the passing of several hours with a good book.
Even when I'd put the book down I was wondering what our heroes and villains would be up to
next, and often retrieved the book to soak up one more chapter.
You can't ask for more than that.
I will definitely recommend the book to my friends.
