But unknown to the president and his lackeys, one unlikely witness saw everything. Trapped behind a two-way mirror in a country house in Maryland, Luther Whitney, a professional burglar, witnesses an event that destroys his faith in justice. By the time he escapes, pursued by two Secret Service agents, a young woman has been sexually assaulted and then shot dead. And a breathtaking cover-up has been set in motion.

"A first-rate storyteller who grabs readers by their lapels right away and won't let go until they've finished his enthralling yarn." (Publishers Weekly)
A great performance, excellent story, what a shame that the only version on Audible was abridged. It just jumped to the end with all the expected suspense building parts cut.
Love the fact Mark Strong can do all these voices! He is a great, truly underappreciated actor. He seamlessly switches accents between narrative and acting all the different roles.
The plot is the best Baldacci novel, made into a film, which this version more than holds its own against. It was an exceedingly entertaining listen which enlivened my commute.
Hooked on crime thrillers but occasionally try something different. I never read a review without giving a positive vote. It's only fair!
I definitely would on this occasion.
The pace and twist and turns.
They were ALL excellent, what a gifted actor he is.
No, but kept me gripped.
Congratulations to Mark Strong, a triumph.
