Reviews

The night that a plane crash kills 181 souls including her husband, Jason, Sidney Archer is unwittingly thrust into a tailspin of her own. When the FBI fingers Jason as the plane's saboteur, other deceptions are revealed, and Sidney is forced to seek the truth. After receiving a shocking phone call from Jason telling her that he is innocent and to trust no one, Sidney employs her skills as a high-powered corporate attorney on a dangerous quest to prove her husband's innocence. Sidney avoids the FBI and skirts those who would see her dead. Her only hope is a password-protected floppy disk containing information that can prove her husband's innocence. Given that Baldacci published this best seller in 1997, story elements central to the plot are quite dated, making the novel somewhat anticlimactic. Narrator Jonathan Marosz reads well and gives this outdated tale the energy it needs to keep listeners intrigued. Verdict Not recommended for small libraries with limited space and budgets. However, libraries collecting a larger scope of popular authors' works might consider adding this audiobook for their die-hard Baldacci fans. ["No one is immune here from high-tech snooping and violent death. Baldacci writes strictly for action, not wasting time developing characters or setting. Few books have higher heaps of dead millionaires at their conclusion," read the review of the Warner hc, LJ 1/97.-Ed.]-JoAnn Funderburk, South Garland Branch Lib., TX (c) Copyright 2013.
