I was honestly bored to tears with this book. My very first Baldacci was Zero Day which, despite the obvious similarities to Lee Child's books, was great. Same with The Innocent--great. Cannot recommend this one though . . I will try the other book in this series for sure but I will be getting it from the library.

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on May 7 2008
Format: Hardcover
This thriller has a lot to commend it: An evil corporate chieftain worthy of Ian Fleming at his best, a sinister police agency that seems worse than crime in some ways, a hero who doesn't want to be one facing a fate like the gladiators slaves did in ancient Rome, a plot to manipulate world opinion, and dire consequences at stake. These elements don't often all make it into the same thriller. Overhanging the story is a profound sense of doom that makes the page-turning appeal higher.

Like the best thrillers, you'll also learn about behind-the-scenes technology that will fascinate you . . . in this case relating to how public opinion can be formed and manipulated. I was also pleased to see that David Baldacci provided lots of memorable locales for his assignations and events.

What's to complain about? The story is built up too big: It's beyond being as credible as a good thriller should be. The basic premise is that no one ever checks anything that shows up on the Internet. While that premise makes for good satire, it doesn't provide a sound-enough foundation for a thriller. In addition, Baldacci takes liberties with how things work in the arms industry: U.S. arms makers aren't free to peddle whatever they want to anyone else. There are significant restrictions on advanced military technology.

I do hope that this will be the start of a series. The leading characters could provide a good center of focus for many other thrillers. Bring them on, Mr. Baldacci!

I listened to the Audio book version of the Whole Truth and it was great in every respect. The story was intriguing and was well read.

Great Novel, great author, the type of book one can hardly put down. I am a great fan of James Petterson and David Baldacci is right up there with him.
