"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.

A different series this time a super assassin named Shaw. I really give this a 3.5 star rating because it is basically a rehash of other novels. The good guy who may not really be good, the love of his life that he loses for no good reason, and the trek for revenge. It is well written like all of...
War mongering is a lucrative business, especially if one is a defense contractor. And peace times are not good for the bottom line, so 'truth' is fabricated, or in other words 'perception management' (a very ugly terminology in 'Public Relations') is needed. In it, lies are so brilliantly packaged t...
A huge defense contractor hopes to stimulate his business ventures with a few fake news stories. Enter our heroes Shaw (whose fiancée was murdered in a resulting bomb blast) and Creel (a disgraced reporter) to get to the bottom of the problem. Typical fast paced Baldacci. Enjoyable read.
