If your only version of th man 's voice is whiny, then get your own voice.2) ALL the emale characters.

Ruthann and Willa were the only strong female haracter.

Do n't make me wrong, it 's readable and there are some scar elements to it, but for the most part, it is a succinctly forgettable novel with a very intriguin and never believable plot.Those of you that have read previous reviews of mine know that I detest spoilers.

And for a guy who enerally writes stories which make sense and that might ctually have happened, now THAT is UN believable! So, my advice is this .... DO continue to read David Baldacci .... just NOT this contrivance called " First Family ".

While we get some political shots I 'm thankfu to kno that it nowhere drowns the plot or the characters.With one of our character having a melt down and suffering with the shattering effects of things in her life ( one of the reasons thi book drag a 4 from me instead of th 5 the whole angsty emotional side to thi story is n't why I come to nove like tha.

hat said I know ome of you will like this part best) the ex-Secret Service crime solving duo find themselves engage in the robber of th oung gir ... fraught not only with danger to the girl but political overtones.
