Synopsis

Mason "Mace" Perry was a firebrand cop on the D.C. police force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime. She lost everything-her badge, her career, her freedom-and spent two years in prison. Now she's back on the outside and focused on one mission: to be a cop once more. Her only shot to be a true blue again is to solve a major case on her own, and prove she has the right to wear the uniform. But even with her police chief sister on her side, she has to work in the shadows: A vindictive U.S. attorney is looking for any reason to send Mace back behind bars. Then Roy Kingman enters her life.Roy is a young lawyer who aided the poor until he took a high-paying job at a law firm in Washington. Mace and Roy meet after he discovers the dead body of a female partner at the firm. As they investigate the death, they start uncovering surprising secrets from both the private and public world of the nation's capital. Soon, what began as a fairly routine homicide takes a terrifying and unexpected turn-into something complex, diabolical, and possibly lethal.

About the Author

Author, David Baldacci, was born in Richmond VA in 1960. He had had a different plan for his life than most authors. He received a law degree from the University of VA and practiced in law for many years in Washington, DC. He actively began writing stories as a child after his mother gave him a notebook. As he got older he wrote short stories and screenplays without reaching much success. He then turned to writing a novel where he spent three years writing Absolute Powers in 1996, which proved to be a bestseller. He has published 29 bestselling adult novels and 4 children's novels.

Baldacci and his wife live in Vienna, VA where they are the founders of "Wish You Well Foundation". (named after one of his novels, "Wish You Well" which was also a screenplay for the movie starring Ellen Burstyn.) The Foundation works to combat illiteracy in the United States. Baldacci has over 110 million copies of his book in print.

AudiobooksNow review by Laurie on 2011-05-05 02:58:58

Baldacci should have done more research on strong women before he wrote this deeply shallow and patently unbelievable conspiracy-theory hoohah. None of the women in this book come across as females. Mace, the protagonist, seems more like a teenage boy than a 30-yr-old woman, and her sister, Chief of Police Beth Mason, is just a backdrop for Mace's silliness. Even antagonist Mona, the standard conniving *****, seems like more of a cardboard stand-in for a stereotype. But the guys aren't much better. There are your automaton Federales-gone-bad contract killers, your looney over-zealous patriots, your super-rich altruists, and your slightly dense pseudo-boyfriend although the only time he actually comes on to Mace, she responds like . . . like a 16-yr-old boy, of course. It makes me think that one morning Baldacci got up and thought, OK, how could I rework some unpublished material into a chick-lit genre, without putting out too much effort? Epic fail.
