Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 May #1
    Fans will applaud bestselling author David Baldacci's latest, especially since a riveting new character's introduced—discharged, world-weary WWII vet Archer, unjustly incarcerated and recently released, speaking with telling pauses punctuated with sharp retorts. His Army training plus keen observation and analytical skills make him a perfect amateur sleuth; even Shaw, the hot-tempered Lt. Detective who suspects him for a small town murder, admits that. Characters grow, including hot-tempered Shaw, whose tightly-wound, mocking tones become respectful; initially full of free-flowing rage barely beneath his sharp-voiced, mean-spirited, gruff demeanor, learning of his family and kids somehow doesn't shock us, nor does his growing regard for Archer, clearly presented in Edoardo Ballerini's delicately nuanced vocal softening with hints of warmth. Archer's parole officer Crabtree develops from uptight old biddy-ish clipped speech of dislike to gentle appreciation of Archer; her evolving hospitality and kindness become frightened tones of concern as deaths multiply, spotlighting Ballerini's impressive talents. Readers will demand more Archer/Ballerini pairings. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
