Faith is on the Run

Lobbyist Faith Lockhart and her boss Danny Buchanan have done wonders with their help for the poor in third world nations, but sometimes they bent the rules a bit, legally speaking. Now Faith suspects perhaps Danny may be bending them too much, so she decides to make a deal with the FBI to save both herself and her boss. However unknown to Faith, Danny has done some deals with the CIA and they don't want her telling the FBI anything. On her way to meet with the Fibby guys, an assassin tries to kill her, luckily she is saved by PI Lee Adams, who has been hired by an anonymous client to follow her. Unfortunately the FBI agent who had been accompanying Faith is killed. Now, all of a sudden, Faith and Lee are on the run. The don't trust each other, but they have no one else to turn to. The FBI wants them alive, especially agent Brooke Reynolds, who was supposed to be in that car with Faith when the assassin struck, but the CIA apparently wants them dead. This story is one long chase scene, full of intrigue and government power gone mad. It's a book that I couldn't put down. As usual David Baldacci nails his characters and draws his readers in right from the get go.

Baldacci does it again!

David Baldacci has found Tom Clancy's nack for detail...and this book is no exception. Like his other books, a fast moving, page turner. His research is superb and you might say scary if that is the way Washington works and I suspect there is some truth to his story (you might even make this book non-fiction!). He does a good job of developing the characters. He will continue to be a must read in my library.

Yes. A winner here.

Five stars. I think reviewing a novel is best achieved by comparing it to others most of us have read, so prospective readers have something to measure it against. Keeping Faith is a spellbinding novel of intrigue, it has the relentless pace and stunning power of The Triumph and the Glory, the plot twists of Grisham at his best, the vivid imagery of Cold Mountain, and the style and flavor of Tom Clancy's Executive Orders.

Another Baldacci great read

Complete with inside the beltway powermongers, hidden agendas, and a lot of dangerous dudes, and hired guns, Faith Lockhart, about to spill the beans to the feebs, finds she is, instead the target of an assasin's bullet. From then on, folks, hang out to your hats. It builds with all the speed of a Canadian logger roaring down I-89 during rush hour. Baldacci accomplishes this in a book that can actually be finished in a couple of sittings and is guaranteed not to put you to sleep.

small number of players makes it easy to follow a complex st

Easy reading and complex plot but, offers a good look into the power of Washington insiders. Wonder if this is more truth than fiction. One of his best.
