Editorial Reviews

Associated Press on The Hit
"Robie is an assassin with ethics, and the nonstop action and twists help move the story along."
Las Vegas Review Journal on The Innocent
"The Innocent is another Grade A suspense novel from Baldacci...This is Baldacci's first story involving Robie, and let's hope it's not the last."
Booklist on Hell's Corner
"The latest Camel Club novel is, as usual, skillfully constructed and very difficult to put down. Baldacci keeps peeling back layers of Stone's psyche, revealing him to be a man full of unresolved conflicts and a potentially self-destructive amount of guilt over his past actions. Another winner."

Biography

David Baldacci's authoritative legal thrillers operate on the irresistible notion that a sinister undercurrent threads through the country's most powerful institutions.

While his stories hinge on the complex machinations behind the presidency, the FBI, the Supreme Court and other spheres of influence, Baldacci (a former Washington, D.C.-based attorney) finds his way into a mystery through the eyes of the innocents. Semi-innocents, at least: small players who often don't realize they're players at all end up hunting down answers, and their hunt becomes the reader's.

According to Baldacci, reading John Irving's The World According to Garp convinced him that he wanted to be a novelist. Absolute Power -- in which a thief finds himself accidentally connected to a murder involving the president and the ensuing coverup -- was hardly Irvingesque; but it did begin Baldacci's friendly relationship with the bestseller lists, which has continued over his writing career.

Baldacci's style is brief and plot-driven, but he's not afraid to linger on macabre and vivid details, such as a rosary clenched in a plane crash victim's hand, or hard-learned lessons from a sniper's life (pack your food so you can find it at night, by touch). These small but memorable -- indeed, almost cinematic -- details give his books another layer that distinguishes them from the average potboiler.

Although the author has occasionally departed from his usual fare (examples include the tenderhearted coming-of-age tale Wish You Well and the holiday-themed adventure The Christmas Train), it is high-octane thrillers that are his true stock in trade. Whether it's a taut stand-alone or a new installment in his Camel Club series, readers know when they crack the spine of a new Baldacci book, they're in for an action-packed page-turner.

Good To Know

Baldacci was a trial lawyer and a corporate lawyer for nine years in Washington, D.C.

He worked his way through college as a Pinkerton security guard and by washing and detailing 18-wheel trucks.

Baldacci writes under his own name except when published in Italy, where he uses a pseudonym because it is the homeland of his ancestors.

Bill Clinton selected The Simple Truth as his favorite novel of 1998, according to Baldacci's web site.

    Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

    Bullseye is a short story, 75 pages long, written by author David Baldacci. While this may be a short story, it is definitely worth reading. This is a review of the audio book. The author has brilliantly united his fans' favorite characters: Will Robie, Oliver Stone, and the Camel Club. Stone is at a mall bank to deposit his paycheck. Will Robie, a government-sanctioned assassin, is hot on the trail of his latest target. Robie and Stone do not know each other. Suddenly, a masked man murders the security guard. A group of masked men take the bank customers hostage. The masked men use plastic cables to tie the hostages in pairs and force them into a storage room. Cabled together, Robie and Stone spot each other as pros and begin to plot a way out of their predicament. Stone manages to retrieve his phone and contacts the Camel Club which comes rushing to their rescue. Robie and Stone put their minds together and figure out the real target while the Camel Club work together to thwart the robbers' plot.

    This tale may be short on pages but it has a large plot, filled with action, suspense, and humor. There were many laughable moments. It is obvious that the bad guys are not bank robbers so just what is it they were after? Combining Robie, Stone, and the Camel Club is a brilliant move on the part of David Baldacci. I am a big fan of the Will Robie series but haven’t read any of the Camel Club series - that will have to change. In combining the characters from two of his series, the author has introduced fans of one series to the characters of the other. That’s a clever way to gain fans for each series. My hope is that the author will consider a full-length story with the characters all working together. Ron McLarty is the narrator/reader in this tale. He does an excellent job, conveying a sense of emotion at just the right time.

    Excellent short story

    It was good to meet the members of the Camel club again, and to have them joined with Will Robie was a very nice touch. I would have liked the story to go on longer!

    All his books are highly recommended

    His books are for mystery fans. All his books grab you from the first page to the last page. It is hard to put them down. And you are surprised at the ending.

    Typical Baldacci always a great story whose charactors are so different yet fall into place like a well worn puzzle!
