Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

This is the first book in a new series by David Baldacci. The characters in this promising new series are Beth Perry, chief of the District of Columbia's Metropolitan Police, and Beth's younger sister, Mace Perry, a former police officer. Macy was just released from prison on parole. She served two years for a crime she did not commit. She was seized by thugs, drugged and forced to go along a series of armed robberies. Mace is determined to clear her name and find who set her up. She wants her life back.

Mace accepts the position of Professor Altman’s research assistant. While working for Altman she and lawyer Roy Kingman team up to solve the double murder of two lawyers.

I’m not a big fan of Baldacci’s Camel Club series but I see great potential in this new series. I liked the characters, although some of them seem larger than life. The reader will have to be willing to suspend reality in a few places, such as: allowing an ex-con come to a crime scene. We all know that would be very unlikely. That fact didn’t bother me, after all this is a work of entertainment.

Baldacci’s plot as usual is intricate. Readers will enjoy the way sister’s Beth and Mace balance each other. They are total opposites and work off of each other well. I enjoyed this book and look forward to next book in this series.
