In this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller, when two former Secret Service agents investigate a message from a soldier who was supposedly killed, they're determined to protect his son...even if they pay for it with their lives.

It seems at first like a simple, tragic story. Tyler Wingo, a teenage boy, learns the awful news that his father, a soldier, was killed in action in Afghanistan. Then the extraordinary happens: Tyler receives a communication from his father...after his supposed death.

Tyler hires Sean and Michelle to solve the mystery surrounding his father. But their investigation quickly leads to deeper, more troubling questions. Could Tyler's father really still be alive? What was his true mission? Could Tyler be the next target?

Sean and Michelle soon realize that they've stumbled on to something bigger and more treacherous than anyone could have imagined. And as their hunt for the truth leads them relentlessly to the highest levels of power and to uncovering the most clandestine of secrets, Sean and Michelle are determined to help and protect Tyler--though they may pay for it with their lives.

David Baldacci tells a compelling and gripping story but unfortunately he lacks technical knowledge which is very often demonstrated in his story endings where he attempts to wrap everything up with some Deus Ex Machina like devices. It gives the feeling that the author likes to craft stories so much that the publishing house yanks it out of his hands then appoints a junior to wind up the plot. **Spoiler Alert** Blowing the oxygen bottle with a shotgun in a enclosed area which supposedly results in blowing off the trunk lid is nonsense that any arithmetic junior would catch. He should raise his game because this happens time after time. Perhaps it is a price to pay when reading or listening to Baldacci.

This was my first Baldacci book and I was hooked from the first disc. By the time I got to Disc 4, I couldn't believe that I still had 7 discs to go because the book was as thrilling as a roller coaster. Admittedly, there were some parts of the story that I found to be implausible, but I found the overall story engaging and well told. The two actors used for the male and female characters helped make the story come alive. Although there is definitely an attraction between the two detectives, I appreciated the author keeping them out of the bedroom (for the duration of the story) and focused on their mystery.

I agree with all of nitetrains comments and give it the same score. 7 of 10 for me.

As with many good stories, the second half revs up and ties most of the confounding first half together. My major agitation is the repeated explanation of the villain's reasoning for his actions. It doesn't need to be restated ten times. They need Edgar. 7 of 10 stars
