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?
This terrifying global thriller delivers all the twists and turns, emotional drama, unforgettable characters and can’t-put-it-down pacing that Baldacci fans expect – and still goes beyond anything he’s written before.
Soon after reading my first David Baldacci I have read a second and I wasn’t disappointed! Whereas First Family was part of a series of books containing the same characters, The Whole Truth is a stand alone book featuring Nicholas Creel an arms dealer who wants to take the world back to the cold war. The hero of the story is Shaw an intelligence agent working for a shady worldwide group who are able to do what governments can’t!
One great thing I found reading this book was that as the reader you knew everything that was happening from both sides of the story, rather than the “bad guy” being revealed at the end following him through the book made the story more gripping and explained the world of Perception Management. A great read!
