"Fast-paced and entertaining."—Kirkus
"[Baldacci] delivers his usual intricate plotting and sets the stage nicely for highly competent Beth and impulsive, streetwise Mace to take on more bad guys."
"Baldacci has proven his ability to write well-paced thrillers that combine crime and politics in locations ranging from mean streets to opulent mansions."
"An action-packed, face-paced, over-the-top-of-the-Washington Monument thriller...very entertaining."
—Midwest Book Review
"Baldacci is at the top of his game here, exercising his talent for creating both winsome and darker-than-dark characters that keep readers turning the pages..."
