This is by far my favorite novel in this series, and one of the best of David Baldacci's novels. The author ties multiple stories of chasing drug dealers doing business out of Fort Dix, an Army base, high level corruption in the federal government, blackmail, multiple murders, and FBI agent Atlee Pine still trying to track down information that will lead her to her twin sister, Mercy, and possibly her mother. Throw in military investigator John Puller and his brother and you end up with a book that is really hard to put down. I thought the interaction between Atlee Pine and John Puller - leads of different series of Baldacci books was much better done than his previous book where he tried to create interaction between John Puller and Amos Decker, which just simply didn't work. In this book, both characters are very driven to "get their man" and can definitely "kick ass and take names." The case links between the two seemed a little bit gray but I still thought the overall story was well done.
