Meet the Author

David Baldacci lives with his family in Virginia. He and his wife have founded the Wish You Well Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting literacy efforts across America. He invites you to visit him at david-baldacci.com and his foundation at wishyouwellfoundation.org.

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.

    Disappointed

    Disappointed in B&N that when this was out for preorder that it never mentioned it was a 21 page short story! After waiting months for it to finally be released, I wish I had never bothered with the 99 cents!

    What gives????

    I've waited two months for this "bargain"... and all that downloaded today was 21 pages--about one chapter of the book and a bunch of ads to buy his next book. I want a refund... the free previews for Nook give you more to read than this!!

    Rip Off

    This book was MONTHS late and then a very short short story.
    It is a total rip off and personally I'm disgusted with the author and more the publisher. Talk about "cashing out" at the expense of e-book readers.

    also misled

    Thought this was a book not just 21 pages. Would also like my money back. You. should be more up front on whether it is a very, very short story or a regular book.

    Misled!

    Barnes & Noble did market this as a book. I thought the $.99 price tag was too good to be true for Baldacci... and it was. The website should have been clear that this was a short story, NOT a book. I want my money back. There is definitely a truth in advertising problem here.

    WHY????

    I have been anxiously waiting since this was put on the list and twice now the date for release has been changed. Now it is again changed and is May! What is the deal. WHY????????? I wait for this author's books. I think those who preordered need to be refunded their money and a free offer be extended.

    Not worth the .99

    Even though I love David Baldacci's other books, I was less than impressed with this short story. First I was disappointed regarding the short story part, guess I didn't read the description thoroughly. The story started off well with, but IMHO had a very lame ending. The prolonged wait for such a short story was unacceptable. This something an author could have written in less than a day. To me, this is just an attempt to trade Mr. Baldacci's name for a bunch of money.

    Caryite

    I was totally surprised that this was only a short story! What a disappoinment. It would have been nice if B&N would have specified it was not a full length book. Only 21 pages, what a rip-off.

    WOMBAT - Waste of Money, Brains, and Time

    When I pre-ordered this, the BN website said NOTHING about it being a short story. The publisher delayed the release date twice. I waited 2 months to spend 2 minutes reading a predictable, boring, poorly written short story. If I could, I'd give it zero stars. Don't waste your time or money.

    Save your Dollar

    After waiting weeks for this book, today I got 21 pages. B&N should be more upfront on this type of thing and tell people it is only a sample that you pay for. At 5 cents a page, it is the most expensive ebook I own !!

    Wouldn't I like to know!

    I preordered this book a while back. It was supposed to be available on March first. Still don't have it and B & N apparently doesn't have any books by David Baldacci available at all now. Strange as the had a number of them on nook a few days ago. Wish I knew what is going on. I'll never preorder another book from Barnes and Noble again. It was just 99 cents but I looked forward to reading it as he's one of my favorites.

    more from this reviewer

    Anything from Baldacci is worth waiting for

    I went back thru my account and noticed this book had not been delivered yet and the release date had been changed. B & N has nothing to do with the release date, that is the publisher. I'm not going to throw a major fit over $1.07 but I will keep an eye on it. I couldn't figure out why a Baldacci book was only .99 in the first place....

    well...

    I think this is not BN fault. The publisher is the one who backed out in publishing this book.
