  • It was okay

    By Bob from Sarasota
    Not a page turner but I didn’t feel cheated by buying it
  • Excellent read

    By JLBryant1980
    David Baldacci tells excellent stories with lots of twists. A bit hard to keep some of the extraneous characters straight, but he makes Archer’s character realistic and likeable.
  • Loved it!

    Absolutely superb. Already looking forward to the next one!
  • Lots of twists and Turns

    By Finch man
    This story is a lot like life. It moves fast and everything does not turn out as planned by the reader!
  • Baldacci Channels Chandler … Superbly!

    By evansdbear
    Aloysius Archer and Phillip Marlowe have a lot in common but Baldacci won this round. Interesting and compelling characters, snappy dialog, and a very interesting plot with some unexpected twists and turns. Archer is both more likeable than Marlowe and better off when things get physical! And Baldacci seems to be having a lot of fun with the characters he’s created here. All in all, a great airplane/vacation read destined to produce many new adventures for Archer.
  • A new Archer evolves in front of your eyes.

    By bxj3
    Author researches everything (In and Out burgers weren’t really in existence quite yet) before the story is delivered and then delivers it with precision. Relationships are the basis for the story which is unusual in a “detective” book. Unlike other “heroes” Archer is learning, growing and hopefully has a long distinguished career.
  • Archer Fan

    By Coastal Carolina Fan
    Simply awesome!
  • Not his best

    By CentralCALady
    Contrived, derivative and somewhat boring.
  • Love Archer.

    By HeidiAH
    Love the description of LA in the 40’s. Just spent time driving many of these LA streets! Love Archer and His Honor.
  • Too many characters

    By TKScrabble
    I finally had to write them all down! Very difficult to follow but a good, albeit complex story.
