Summary

The heart-racing follow up to The Whole Truth from the international best-selling author.

Evan Waller is a monster. He has built a fortune from his willingness to buy and sell anything...and anyone. In search of new opportunities, Waller has just begun a new business venture: one that could lead to millions of deaths all over the globe.

On Waller’s trail is Shaw, the mysterious operative from The Whole Truth, who must prevent Waller from closing his latest deal. Shaw’s one chance to bring him down will come in the most unlikely of places: a serene, bucolic village in Provence.

But Waller’s depravity and ruthlessness go deeper than Shaw knows. And now, there is someone else pursuing Waller in Provence - Reggie Campion, an agent for a secret vigilante group headquartered in a musty old English estate - and she has an agenda of her own. Hunting the same man and unaware of each other’s mission, Shaw and Reggie will be caught in a deadly duel of nerve and wits.

Hitchcockian in its intimate build up of suspense and filled with the remarkable characters, breathtaking plot turns, and blockbuster finale that are David Baldacci’s hallmarks, Deliver Us From Evil will be one of the most gripping thrillers of the year.

Excellent

Very good story line as usual. Really enjoyed the plot and style and narration. I listen to books when travelling, and this really helps the hours fly by.

First Baldacci and Last

Literary cliches abound, annoying interlude music, ridiculous attempt by narrator at female characters, preposterous plot, unbelievable characters, I could go on.

This book proves that the best way to write a 'best seller' is to seek out the lowest common de-nominator and give em what they want. No thank you Mr B - I love Provence but I'd rather read 'A Year In' - and that's saying something

Dropped the ball on this one!

What disappointed you about Deliver Us From Evil: Shaw, Book 2?

Compared to his other works, this seemed very slapdash - as though it was put together very quickly and without much thought. There was an evident lack of research that showed in turn a lack of respect for his readers. Baldacci has an international following so it stands to reason that some of his readers will be based in the UK and in France, therefore a little more attention to detail would have made this better. Ten minutes on the internet would have told him that flying from Paris to Avignon (and frankly, why would you when the TGV is so much easier?) you leave from Orly airport NOT Charles de Gaulle!

What was most disappointing about David Baldacci’s story?

As mentioned above, the irritating little details that showed lack of attention to detail and which in turn, worked like little pebbles in your shoes.We understood that Shaw's target was a nasty man so why all the gory details? And why refer to Waller's contact constantly by his religion??

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Ron McLarty is usually a very good narrator - especially when paired with Orla Cassidy, who could really have been used here - but his British accents were on a par with Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins and his pronunciation of French words and names were inconsistent and awkward.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not enough to even make us listen until the end.

Any additional comments?

I am normally a huge fan of David Baldacci's books, both the stand along thrillers as well as the character series, and have a lot of them in book, digital and audio format so I am aware of the normally high standard of his work. I enjoyed the first Shaw book but this was just such a disappointment.

Really Bad

Did not realise this was an American Republican voice piece and went by reviews, horrific! Unless you are interested political violence for the "greater good" don’t waste your credits.

Very interesting and well read

The history is very interesting and instructive in several ways: history, geography, nuclear history, russian and ukranian affairs.

I think it's one of the best Baldacci books
