"Matt, I need a war."
So begins David Baldacci's new book--a thriller unlike any he's written before. "Matt" is Mathew Pender, of Pender Associates--a shadowy organization that specializes in managing seemingly impossible situations for its clients. Sometimes, those services extend to managing--and creating--armed conflict. When Matt Pender is asked by his client--the largest defense contractor in the world--to manipulate two nations against each other, a shocking and surprising series of events are set in motion that will possibly bring the world to the brink of World War III.*
In this epic thriller with a global backdrop, David Baldacci delivers all the twists and turns, compelling characters, and can't-put-it-down pacing that readers have come to expect from this master storyteller.

A hired gun named Shaw finds himself involved in an impending war, deliberately incited through an elaborate fabrication created by a specialized PR firm hired by a large defense contractor. When his fiancˆ©e is killed in an incident relating to the ruse, Shaw focuses on finding those responsible--and the truth about what's going on. Ron McLarty delivers the consistent narration the listener depends on to follow Baldacci's plot twists. McLarty's best voices include that of the agency boss, whose tough-guy tone comes through loud and clear. Also well done is Nicolas Creel, the billionaire behind the scheme, as well as various female and foreign characters. Baldacci's plot and McLarty's voices guide the listener as Shaw crusades for the truth. M.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
