After a couple of less than stellar books in this series, Baldacci has raised the bar back to his norm.
Michelle was not the awe inspiring delta force person. That is an improvement for me. I got a bit tired of her macho actions in the preceding two books. She and Sean are a good matched pair of PI's in this installment. The writing is crisp, the story swift. I would give it 4.5 stars if that option were available.
