I am a big fan of Baldacci so when this novel became available on Net Galley I requested a copy. I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery/thriller.
The story involves a hired assassin, a teen-age girl, and a female FBI agent. The assassin is running from a botched hit. On the bus ride to New York he saves a 14-yr-old from a man sitting behind her who attempts to snap her neck. The FBI agent is assigned to discover who and why that bus to New York was blown up, killing all passengers.
There were lots of questions that I wanted answered. This may not be Baldacci's best but it was entertaining and well worth the read.
