This is the first of the trilogy. I do like thrillers written by David Baldacci and this was no exception. He tells the story in such a way that you just hope it is a work of fiction. Beautifully written and great pacing with a ninja assassin. If you’re looking for a strong female lead FBI agent / strong fighter, pick this up. With all the elements of intrigue at the highest levels of government. How can you resist? I am excited to start the next one.
