Despite the review by the somewhat jaded reviewer that appears first in the review section, I thought the book was a great read. Usually I can figure out who the bad guys are early on, but it was well into page 300 + that I thought I had it nailed! Well, I had one of them, but not the rest and I could not easily figure out the motives. Lots of characters. Lots of action. Not spell binding, but a fine story involving the FBI, local police and savvy drug dealers. After reading Unbroken by Gup, this one followed closely the kinds of risks and off-the-wall actions of typical law enforcement folk. Like I said to others, it is a great read! Follow the advice o the majority of readers - get the book!

I received this book as a birthday present and the gift brought a grateful smile to my face since I have enjoyed many of David Baldacci's novels, i.e., Absolute Power, A Simple Truth and others and within a few days I was reading Last Man Standing. Overall, I thought the Web London character was boring and shallow. As an FBI hostage team assaulter he seemed more like a loose cannon rather than a team player which I suspect is the SOP for the FBI. The story is plastered with police that have nothing to fill their time with except to shoot bazookas like guns and love every minute of their destruction. Sometimes I had to laugh because some of the author's scenarios were so bizarre and far-fetched. I won't go into the constant splattering of foul, almost detestable language, which I didn't feel added much to the plot. There were few surprises and I felt I was sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what would happen next. Anyway, in my opinion Last Man Standing doesn't seem to fit Mr. Baldacci's style of a thrilling mystery novel that is at least realistic to a degree and his intensive research into the subject matter that he noted for. One last thought I think the book could have been shorten by at least 50 or 60 pages. It's not a terrible novel, it's a good read and I wouldn't recommend purchasing it.

I listened to this book driving north to New York, from Florida. I don't know if the book is as good as a visual read but, as an audio, it was great. There was no chance of falling asleep while driving, that's for sure. It was really an exciting thriller which held my interest constantly. It was just perfect for a long car trip. It starts out with an FBI drug bust gone bad and then twists and turns with all sorts of subplots woven into the tale. There are kidnappings, unsolved murders, betrayals, crooked psychiatrists, drug dealers, planted bugs in offices and cars, hired thugs and killers. There are a lot of characters and you really do have to concentrate to keep them straight but they all seem vital to the story and most are very interesting characters with unique personalities. Web London is the star FBI agent around whom the plot revolves. Did he become paralyzed with fear during the drug bust or did something else cause his odd, erratic behavior? His past comes back to haunt him as he tries to get to the bottom of that mystery. The book will keep you on the edge of your seat until the end. There are some parts which may require you to suspend disbelief, they are either so obvious or seem outrageous, but they do add to the plot, in their own way. There is one major drawback with this audio book. Although the reader was very good, in between each segment, music played. The sound and tempo of the music made it seem like the audio was over as the melody faded off to nothing and silence ensued. If you didn't pause and wait until the CD went back to the 1st track, you wouldn't realize that it was not over and could remove it prematurely, missing part of the story, as a result. I recommend this book for airports, plane trips, cruises and beach reading. It is not a serious read; it is an exciting, crime novel, a fun read in which all the ends will tie up nicely and yet, it will still leave you wondering about what the future will hold for Web London, when you turn the final page.

This is a fascinating book. I found it educational in that you got a great look at the FBI's HRT team and the trials that are involved in the job. The story is super, and it reads very fast. If you can guess the end of this book, you've got super ESP!

Baldacci fused so many elements in this story! It possesses 'who-done-it'excitment, strong pathos and feelings, the power of the team and the power and fear of the individual, layers of human experiences and emotions. This mix blends together wonderfully to create an action novel. I couldn't put it down, and I anticipate a series or at least a sequel!

“Last Man Standing” is an interesting but slow developing story. The writing is great and the book is well thought out and plotted. It starts out with a bang and has some action at points but the majority of the story is character development which can make it feel as if it is dragging at points but also makes for a well-rounded story. If this is the type of book you enjoy with complex characters and an interesting story which will keep you guessing pick this up. If you’re looking for a looking for a mile a minute thriller then you might want to look elsewhere.

Mr. Baldacci has done another wonderful job of bringing us a terrific compelling story..It is a page turner with a realistic hero. I found it worth the money invested to read it.....

Loved this book. I couldn't put it down. I just found Baldacci this summer and am enjoying all the books I've read of his. This would make a great movie. Web was such an interesting character. I would love to see more in this series and I think a movie or TV series would really be great. A must read and I didn't care that it was long.

I am a David Baldacci fan. At this time, he can do no wrong. The twists and plots, trying to figure out were the story is going, never disappoints. I have managed to read every one of his books so far within a 24 hour period, even playing hooky from chores. I hope he does not become commercialized like Patterson, creating mediocre work. This review goes for all his books I've read so far. Particularly, the Maxwell and Kane series.

Have read many of his books, this was not a page turner. Found it to be to long and difficult to hold my interest.

A very interesting read – enjoyed the audio as this is a fast paced thriller! Action packed with suspense, plot twists and the main character Wed, a member of FBI HRT—leaving him the last man standing after a wipe out of the team. Taking you from the past to the present as you learn more – as he unravels the mystery with colorful characters along the way --- great job from Baldacci!

I love David Baldacci's books but I think this may be one of the best. At first I was a little concerned how I would be able to stay interested in a 500 + page book, but believe me, I was hooked on the characters and the plots the whole book, never got bored or tired of the storyline. The book is about CIA & HRT heros and it takes place mostly in Washington DC where you get a dose of the good, the bad, and the ugly of government leaders and also the bad elements that live in the poor sections.
