Summary

I need a war....

Nicolas Creel, a super-rich arms dealer, decides that the best way to boost his business is to start a new cold war - and he won't let anything or anyone get in his way.

As international tensions rise and the superpowers line up against each other, the lives of three very different people will never be the same again. As intelligence agent Shaw, academic Anna Fischer and ambitious journalist Katie James are all drawn into Creel's games, can anything stop the world from spiralling out of control?

The Whole Truth by David Baldacci is a terrifying global thriller that delivers all the twists and turns, emotional drama, unforgettable characters and can't-turn-it-off pacing that Baldacci fans expect - and still goes beyond anything he's written before.

The Whole Truth is followed by a second Shaw and Katie James audiobook, Deliver Us from Evil.

Fantastic Book

This has got to be my favourite Baldacci book what is truth is it something manufactured or something real? In many ways s visionary book and a fable for the reality we now face and it’s a great story which kept me engaged throughout and that’s the truth

Interesting thriller notsure I believe in the hero

Good plot with some interesting ideas. The almost perfect hero was not convincing. It certainly kept you listening,

Utterly disappointing

Simplistic, low brow, unbelievable storyline. I stuck with it hoping that the writing would improve, but it did not, it just got worse.
No more Baldachi for me.
