"Dick, I need a war."
Nicolas Creel is a man on a mission. He heads up the world's largest defense contractor, The Ares Corporation. Dick Pender is the man Creel retains to "perception manage" his company to even more riches by manipulating international conflicts. But Creel may have an even grander plan in mind.
Shaw, a man with no first name and a truly unique past, has a different agenda. Reluctantly doing the bidding of a secret multi-national intelligence agency, he travels the globe to keep it safe and at peace.
Willing to do anything to get back to the top of her profession, Katie James is a journalist who has just gotten the break of a lifetime: the chance to interview the sole survivor of a massacre that has left every nation stunned.
In this terrifying, global thriller, these characters' lives will collide head-on as a series of events is set in motion that could change the world as we know it. An utterly spellbinding story that feels all too real, THE WHOLE TRUTH delivers all the twists and turns, emotional drama, unforgettable characters, and can't-put-it-down pacing that readers expect from David Baldacci-and still goes beyond anything he's written before.

Nicholas Creel's enormous defense contracting company needs a war, so he creates a conflict, using the Internet to grease the wheels by spreading rumors of murders in Russia. In the meantime, Shaw, an enforcer for a super-secret intelligence agency, becomes embroiled in Creel's game when his fiance is murdered while investigating the validity of the rumors. Ron McLarty delivers Baldacci's thriller with the aplomb of the veteran narrator he is. His gravelly voice alternates between calmness and intensity, drawing in the listener with each word. As Creel spins propaganda and twists reality, McLarty's even pacing and minimal characterizations keep the listener focused on the tangled plot, which seems all too conceivable.
