Split Second by David Baldacci

Another satisfying read from Baldacci. Set in my favourite US city – Washington DC. It tells the tale of a former secret service agent Sean King and how he helps Michelle to find her protectee who was kidnapped on the campaign trail. As ever he weaves an intricate storyline that is compelling and hooks you in. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The ending was a bit …meh. but the ride was still enjoyable. I will be on the lookout for more in the series.

The Camel Club by David Baldacci

This is the first in the Camel Club series of books set in Washington DC. It uncovers a plot within the intelligence community to kidnap POTUS. A highly entaertaining reda that never loses pace. The characters are great and utterly believeable. I love Milton with his OCD.

Highly recommended read in the spy thriller genre. Will definitely be on the lookout for more Baldacci books.

Book Review: Stone Cold by David Baldacci

This is the first audiobook I have ‘read’. John Baldacci writes in a simple enjoyable way. The plots were not unlike any good spy novels from similar genres. Whilst I enjoyed it I felt the characters were lacking…kudos to the author though for at least having a strong female character in the form of Anabelle. A big plus for was the lack of emphasis on her physicality or attractiveness to the male. Shocking plot twist towards the end that i did not expect – so that picked up the pace of the book.

I shall definitely return to Baldacci (especially if Lee Child isnt available)
