Shades of James Fenimore Cooper!,
This review is from: Hour Game (King & Maxwell) (Hardcover)
Anyone who has read Coopers classic "Pathfinder" will enjoy this book. Remember the Pathfinder hitting a nail from 100 YARDS with a borrowed rifle? Well, Baldacci has one-upped him by having the bullet of the good investigator meet the bullet of bad guy IN MIDAIR!!
This book is 50% too long, the story repeatedly interspersed with 3-page conversations of conjecture re: "who could have done it?"
My suspicion is that, Baldacci, like a lot of popular writers, has hired a bunch of flacks to fill out his general plots. Makes him a lot of money, I guess.
Don't waste your money on this one--all the way through, you will be wanting to page to the last chapter to get it over with and see whodunit
