Deliver Us From Evil

deliver us“Mallory had used great care in vetting all of the people who worked here.  There were no formal recruitments, of course. One couldn’t put an advertisement in the paper seeking justice-minded vigilantes comfortable with killing folks who desperately deserved it.”

Deliver Us from Evil is author David Baldacci’s second in the “Shaw series” (I only put it in quotes as I don’t think it is a true series as it seems to have stopped after three novels).  In this story Shaw finds himself on the hunt for a really bad man which leads him to a serene little town in France and into the arms of a beautiful woman…a woman who seems intent on getting in his way and needing his protection.  This is making his task more dangerous and forcing him to take his eye off of the prize…a dangerous thing when trying to catch a very dangerous man.

The Whole Truth

whole truthThe Whole Truth is the first in the “A. Shaw” series originally published in 2008.  The novel by thriller writer David Baldacci has the world on the verge of war as unseen forces are playing chess with world powers and global superpowers are thrust into a return to Cold War days.  Powerful forces are at work to push public opinion against an old enemy.  The lead character named Shaw seems to be a puppet on the string of powerful “police” and is forced to do their bidding and accidently become intertwined with the growing world tension.  He joins forces with a prize-winning author who is down on her luck to try to prevent war.
