Read "Absolute Power," couldn't put it down -- wow, what a premise. The movie wasn't even close.Am reading "The Winner" -- well I've read about 3 chapters -- but it hasn't held my interest so far as much as "Absolute ..."

I really, really like Baldacci's writing. I first read Absolute Power...couldn't put it down. When I then read Total Control, I felt like his writing just got better. The Winner was even better yet. I,too was diappointed with the movie version of Absolute Power - what? They couldn't kill off Clint Eastwood?? What immense deviation from the book! I'm looking forward to Baldacci's next!!

We enjoyed Absolute Power as well as Total Control. We rented The Winner on audio book tape while on a trip and thought it to be the best of the first three. The villan is extrordinary and the heroine is so naive that it seems a miracle that she survived! Read it.

Ron Johnson - thanks fo recommendation re: "The Winner." Got book last year from my book club, but put it aside. Will make it a point to read next.

I can't be the only person to have noticed that Absolute Power has exactly the same premise as Lawrence Block's The Burglar in the Closet, can I ?

I liked Absolute Power, Total Control, The Winner, and The Simple Truth. I didn't care for Saving Faith. It was okay but I was expecting better.

I have read all of David Baldacci's books. I have not been disappointed. I have just finished 'Saving Faith' and found it addictive. I couldn't put it down. However, my favourite has to be 'The Winner'. I would recommend them to anyone!!

So far, I think that my favorite of Baldacci's books is The Winner. I really have to watch myself when I get one of his books, no one eats or gets clean clothes until I'm through!!

If you enjoyed "Absolute Power," or "The Simple Truth," I highly recommend reading, "Company Confidential," by Tom McCrory. This graphic, hard-boiled suspense-thriller was awarded the 2000 Gold Medal Award for Best Myster/Thriller by the Southern Writers Guild.

I have read all of Baldacci's books, except his latest, which I just ordered. "The Winner" was superb. A lot of people said it didn't hold their interest in the beginning--stick with it!! You won't be disappointed!

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

Coming in April, 2008, Baldacci's latest The Whole Truth a thriller unlike any he's written before. "Matt" is Mathew Pender, of Pender Associates--a shadowy organization that specializes in managing seemingly impossible situations for its clients. Sometimes, those services extend to managing--and creating--armed conflict. When Matt Pender is asked by his client--the largest defense contractor in the world--to manipulate two nations against each other, a shocking and surprising series of events are set in motion that will possibly bring the world to the brink of World War III.*

In this epic thriller with a global backdrop, David Baldacci delivers all the twists and turns, compelling characters, and can't-put-it-down pacing that readers have come to expect from this master storyteller.
