Absolutely Dynamite!

I am recommending this book to all my friends who love a real heart-pounding thriller. I refused to put this book down until I finished it...Total Control has all the verve and excitement of Absolute Power but is infinitely more intriguing. The high-tech aspect of this novel was well researched. I love Baldacci?s treatment of his women characters: in Sidney Archer he has created a smart, determined and savvy tigress who exhibits extraordinary resolve and courage in her quest to find out about her husband?s surprising death. She is as adept at dealing with hired hit men as she is with slick corporate lawyers. The plot itself is a rather convoluted maze with enough twists and turns to keep the reader guessing about the next plot line: chapter by chapter. This is pure David Baldacci. There is no filler here. If you want to read an exciting novel that holds your interest with each page this is it.

Total Control is a riveting page turner!

Set against an advanced technological backdrop the story quickly unfolds to let the reader know that the real control belongs to those with the most money. So much money they can control people in positions of power like puppets on a string. Greed is the focal point of total control. There are those who will do anything because of it, which ulitmately leads to their demise. Contrasting these, are the "innocent" ones caught in a web of intrigue trying to put the many pieces of the puzzle together(this is a recurring theme found in The Winner, while not as dark a plot as Total Control, it is a suspenseful novel not to be missed) As one person said in Total Control (Sawyer, I think) "Money is the root of all evil, or rather the lack of it." This story leads us into the innermost recesses of the characters minds where we can see the motivation behind their actions, actions which lead to a downward spiral or soaring success. At times Total Control is touching and tragic, but always chilling and gripping. Read Total Control, it is a fast paced cleverly written story, one you won't soon forget.

A terrific read right from the start!

I had never read Baldacci before, but this book grabbed me right from the start and didn't let go! This would make a great movie! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes their books to have action, suspense, and a lot of twists. A must read for any Ludlum fan!

This was really great!

I devoured this book in one day -- it was so suspenseful, I couldn't put it down. _Total Control_ was as good as a good John Grisham novel, but it lasted longer, so it was even more satisfying!What a great story!
