Set at the heart of political power in Washington, DC, Absolute Power was the novel which launched David Baldacci's career as a worldwide best seller of thrilling fiction. The movie, starring Clint Eastwood, was a major box office success across the world.
In a heavily guarded mansion in the Virginian countryside, professional burglar and break-in artist Luther Whitney is trapped behind a one-way mirror. What he witnesses destroys his faith in not only justice but all he holds dear.
What follows is an unthinkable abuse of power and a criminal conspiracy, as a breathtaking cover-up is set in motion by those appointed to work for one of the most important people in the world - the president of the United States.

Very big audible fan.
This was the book that began david baldacci's writing career and you can see why he is one of the best at what he does. Great action thrillers. I was so happy to see that audible finally had this book to download. Scott does another great job of narrating this book. If you want a good listen then this is the book for you.
Suspense, rivetting, superb
Luther - a caring, good, bad guy
Absolutely. I couldn't wait to get back to it, every time I had to take a break.
The best book I have listened to for a long time.
twists and turns
the plot and sub plots, the details given makes the scene come alive as if you've there
very good story , well read.
I'm a keen David Baldacci fan but this one was just slow. Normally I'm finding excuses to keep listening but one occasion I had to work at finishing it. However the short story at the end was clever and great treat.
Audible stories make me smile on the rainy days when I walk the dog, peal the veg, or am faced with a long lonely car drive.
It was easy to fall into the plot and accept all of the consequences that arose.
The characters were all believable - one thing led to another in such a plausible way.
I think I enjoyed Seth the most, but all were good.
I missed the film first time around - my next goal is to watch it on Youtube.
This is a great story by a great writer. Sadly the narrator is so boring I haven't got out of the first chapter before returning it. I can only liken his tone to a vicar giving a sermon.
No never ever that is unless I ever start to suffer from insomnia !!
Go to church......it's free
