Per usual, it didn't take me very long to devour the latest from David Baldacci. First Family, like all of Baldacci's novels, had its share of twists and turns, intrigue and mayhem, and, yes, a few deaths. Baldacci's former Secret Service sleuthing duo of Michelle Maxwell and Sean King solve several mysteries simultaneously. From the mystery in Michelle's past to the kidnapping of the niece of the President and First Lady of the United States, Baldacci once again delivers. Readers won't be disappointed.
This means, of course, onto the next novel. I have started reading Anita Shreve's Resistance, which is set during World War II in Belgium. So far, I haven't read much of it; most of her work, that I have read, I have really enjoyed, but it is taking me longer to get into this one. I think it has to do with all the descriptions of the crew's flight and ultimate crash that is needed to set the stage for the meat of the story. On the other hand, it could just be that I worked all weekend and really haven't been able to progress too far.
I received this book from a fellow bookcrosser in California. Once finished with it, I will release into the "wild" so that others may find, read, and enjoy it, too. For authors who desire their works to be read, but have little hope of distribution through bookstores, especially the larger ones, consider joining bookcrossers yourselves and release your books into the "wild". Grassroots readers may just embrace your novels and make a success of your book one reader at a time.
