Top critical review
Is it just me?
Reviewed in Australia on 7 May 2020
I've read a lot of Baldacci books and I am always eagerly awaiting the next one. I've read the Camel Club series, King and Maxwell, Robbie, and Decker.. but this was disappointing.
The dialogue and plot progression was almost childish. It felt like the book was aimed at 12 year olds.
The climate change mantra was just annoying.. leave it out!
The ending was unbelievable.. facts never implied or disclosed prior suddenly emerged, the whole thing tied up with a ribbon on top.
It feels like the author was writing to a formula and basically just "phoning it in".
Maybe I've been spoiled by my recent forays into John Sandford and John Connolly.. I don't know.
Overall, I'll be thinking twice before buying the next Baldacci book.
