By Lawyeraau TOP 100 REVIEWER on March 8 2012
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Overall, I enjoyed this book, though I had to suspend reality for this thriller, as there were parts in it that were so far-fetched as to be ludicrous. Still, it was guilty pleasure that kept me turning the pages in this plot driven thriller.

Baldacci introduces what appears to be a new series of characters starring Mace and Beth Perry, who are sisters. Beth is the older one and Chief of Police in Washington, DC. Mace is the street smart, younger sister, who, as a DC cop, became known as the Patty Hearst of the 21st century, having been framed, convicted, and sentenced to prison for some things she did against her will. Having served her time, the disgraced Mace is now hell bent on vindicating herself. After all, she just wants to be back on the beat.

The plot, though somewhat convoluted, is certainly action packed, and Mace and her sister are likeable characters. Still, there is an almost cartoon-like quality about the plot, as it is so over the top at times. Moreover, the secondary characters tend to be somewhat two dimensional, as there is little character development. For the most part, the characters tend to speak in clichés, though the fast-paced repartee between Mace and the other characters tends to be humorous.

If the author were to craft another novel with these two main characters, I would certainly give it a whirl, even if the plot and action were, once again, a bit over the top.

I had read many of David Baldacci's early novels but kind of got away from him for a bit. I rediscovered him reading Divine Justice and listening to First Family.

I chose to listen to True Blue.

Mace Perry was a cop's cop on the DC force. Until she was kidnapped and forced to participate in robberies. She went down for two years. Newly released from prison, she returns to DC, determined to clear her name. Her sister Beth is the chief of police. In her first few days out, she becomes involved with a young lawyer, Roy, who discovers a female attorney's body at his office. Mace can't help herself - she was born to be a cop. She dives in, working outside the law with Roy to solve the case. She hopes it will get her reinstated. Others are hoping she fails and are willing to make sure that happens.

A mystery, legal and action thriller all rolled into one with lots of action. Yes, the characters of Mace and her sister Beth are a little over the top, but if you're looking for an entertaining read or listen, this is a good bet.

I was thrilled that Ron McLarty was the reader again. His voice is slightly gravelly and rich. He easily portrays the female Mace character and male roles with enough difference that you know who is 'talking'. His inflection is excellent and his voice effortlessly describes action and emotion.
