The simple truth is, my life doesn’t work without you. This book is also lovingly dedicated to the memory of Brenda Gayle Jennings, a special child.

In his new novel of corruption, romance, family, and justice at the heart of the American republic, David Baldacci takes us on a journey of harrowing conspiracy - and proves once again that in the realm of suspense, he is in a league of his own. The simple truth.

THE SIMPLE TRUTHIt's never what it seems...Young attorney Michael Fiske broke the law when he took Rufus Harms's prison letter from the Supreme Court. But he also sealed his own fate. Suddenly everyone who has anything to do with Harms or his appeal mysteriously dies. Now Michael's brother John, a cop turned attorney, comes to Washington to find out why his brother was murdered--and what it had to do with a crime that Harms committed twenty-five years before. But the one man who can help John, the one man who knows what really happened more than two decades ago--and why--has escaped from prison and is running for his life.

Not the best of Badacci's novels, this murder mystery which takes place in and around the US Supreme Court has a rather convoluted plot. Michael Fisk, a gifted young lawyer and US Supreme Court clerk, is murdered in what is made to look like a robbery. His estranged brother John, a criminal defense lawyer and former cop, decides he will aid the police in solving the crime. From this point forward the story involves politicians, convicts, CIA agents, FBI agents, police, Supreme Court security officers, Supreme Court justices and many others leading to a not very climactic end. I was disappointed, as the conspiracy unfolded, that the cause of the initial and subsequent murders did not carry the weight of the ensuing carnage. In that regard the story seemed out of balance for me and the plot felt forced. Otherwise, the book is entertaining and the characters are interesting and relatable.
I've read every Balldacci novel and short. I have only had iffy feelings over one other.

Every one the I've read took a day and a half. This took three weeks I kept it down and reading something else. The story was so loaded with character I confused two with one another and Dellasandro was not well enough expanded in the beginning to retain who exactly he was.

Secondly I heartilly dilike John Fiske I was actually swimming to believe he's killed his brother.

Then tonight I finally had 183 pages and picked up.

The v ending quarter was beyond much he's writhen the b last couple b of b guests I daughters up until just now to finish it. Too bad the last three pages were added, they weren't needed and I just couldn't buyt the making peace

So in short the b book is v week eyetooth if you Ike many charters I usually don't mind them if the author can keep I then straight. The end is Baldacci at his best.

While he's still one b of my favorite withers and I'm pick up his next. This one is one of two I won't reread.

Sorry, David, if you're reading this, I was disappointed.
Baldacci never disappoints. Learning about the inner workings of the Supreme Court was eye-opening. He takes his time developing characters so the reader can 'inhabit' them for a while. Meeting Rufus, who has spent 25 years in prison for something he didn't really do reminds us that we have that same situation today. Crimes in the military and among the powerful are also part of our daily landscape. That Baldacci wrote this so long ago (not much use of technology like cell phones) should tell us how well he studies the times in order to show us our future. OR he knows that people just don't change - only the times do! I am a voracious reader, and I've found that many of the newer crime/thriller authors can't quite measure up to David Baldacci.
Mr. Baldacci just can't help himself. He has woven another heart stopping never slowing story that kept me reading. I seem to always finish his books just a little too fast. Sorry he is that good.
This is a truly enjoyable novel from the very-talented David Baldacci. Michael Fiske, a highly-respected clerk at the Supreme Court, is murdered, and his somewhat estranged brother John, a struggling defense attorney and former cop, tries to help the police locate the killer. When the FBI gets involved, the agent in charge seems hellbent on framing John for it. Add to this some very interesting behind-the-scenes Supreme Court machinations, and one of the most unforeseen plot twists I've ever read, and you've got a helluva good novel in your hands!
Not being a fan of legal dramas – finding too much courtroom jargon boring and convoluted – I was inclined at the beginning to think I had chosen wrongly, even to the extent of putting the book down. However I am thankful I persisted. While the first couple of chapters are a bit long winded, they contain much that adds depth and understanding to the characters and the plot as it evolves. The action and the twists and surprises are in typical Baldacci style and this saga is as good as any of his best.
part of the answer is yes, because the suspense (finally) builds and builds; part of answer is no because there are so many side stories and I was puzzled how they contributed to the main plot. Having said that, I really enjoyed it and was gasping out loud towards the end as it, finally, rushed to a surprisingly unforseen conclusion but, ultimately, justice was served.
I have never been so moved by the denouement of fictional work. The ending is so masterfully crafted that I shed tears. Those who know me would not be surprised, except, perhaps, by the volume. Forgiveness can be powerful...

The juxtaposition of a man of faith and a man whose faith was lost is quite a poignant one...this is a must read....

This is Mr. Baldacci at his best.
