The story has an interesting little plot, but not much character development or interaction due to the length of the short story. However, Baldacci does a good job of getting you interested in the character - this really could have been the outline of a full-length novel, and I think it would be a good diversion for Baldacci as I really haven't liked his last two novels which appear to have been primarily written by others. You do have a pretty good idea of how the story concludes about 75% of the way through it.
To summarize, this is a pretty good short story and Baldacci fans should like it. I did!
This is the weakest writing that I have ever read from Baldacci. As a matter of full disclosure, I am RABID fan of his novels and eagerly await each and every one of them since being turned on to his thrillers about three years ago. However, this first efort at a kindle short story is predictable, implausible, and never links the character motivation that drives the ending. I thought maybe it was me, but upon reading it a second time I was still left confused at the ending and wondering why he had even written it.
Read his novels and stay away from this weak story. His new book "The Sixth Man" is a much better and enjoyable read.
Better luck next time.
I had no idea what a Kindle Single was but thought I would try this one since I do love David Baldacci's writing.
This very short story deals with the life of a paid assassin who does his job well. We have a quick look at his latest job and then follow him as he meets a new client for an "challenging" job. But what could be so challenging about what appears to be a very strait forward killing. He sees nothing challenging about it.
But that is where Baldacci catches us. The man does his job quickly and well, but as soon as he has dispatched the victim he realizes that he has made a grave mistake. This story will take you about ten minutes to read and will leave you with the desire to read more.
Maybe Amazon will package these Kindle Singles into an anthology so that we have a larger gathering of short stories in one volume.
PLEASE, do not waste your time on this poor excuse for a story.
I am sorry; I had to give it a star. Even with a willing suspension of belief, the premise is ludicrous. Even given the possibility of time travel, there is no motivation given for the old man to give it away just to kill the assassin. Secondly: how did he go back in time with out knowing it and if it was the train that did it, did everyone else on the train go back in time also? And, if the other train riders did go back in time , why did the mysterious old man ruin their innocent lives by sending them back in time.
This was a waste of the 5 minutes it took to read it.
