David Baldacci
« on: January 28, 2020, 03:11:25 pm »
David Baldacci is a best-selling thriller writer. Like Harlan Coben and Linwood Barclay, Baldacci is a must-read for me. I just started his latest, A MINUTE TO MIDNIGHT.

I went through his book list and realized I've read at least one book from each of his series books, but I've read nearly all of his stand-alones.

I think I've read all of his MEMORY MAN books - I love the premise:

"Amos Decker is a valuable asset to the police force: a highly skilled investigator with a perfect memory, the result of a traumatic sports injury. Decker’s inability to forget anything makes him a wonderful detective, but it’s also a curse for a man who has seen things he would rather not remember."

One of his stand-alones really resonated with me: https://www.davidbaldacci.com/titles/david-baldacci/total-control/9780759524927/

I'm a big fan of David Baldacci as well. I haven't read everything he's written but I've read most of it. I have a few books that I bought but haven't gotten around to reading yet.

I loved the standalones The Winner and True Blue, but I love his series books too.

One of my trivia team partners is a HUGE fan of the author and when he found out (cause I called him to tell him!) that I had gotten not one, but TWO Baldacci advance copies to do reviews, he was soooo jealous.

By the way, the reviews I did were for:

Great review! I'm really enjoying Carol Blum and her relationship, personally and on the job, with Atlee Pine.

I'm looking forward to reading this, too!

I haven't made much progress on A MINUTE TO MIDNIGHT which is no fault of the book. We've had a lot of rain the past few weeks and my granddaughters are getting cabin fever. Compared to Chicago weather, this has been idyllic, but it's too wet and muddy for the girls to play outside. As a result, they are full of beans and I'm ready to crash way earlier than usual. Plus, I watch a sweet foster baby a couple days a week. She is just starting to walk so nothing is safe, and by the end of the day I'm too tired to read much. I am progressing, just not as quickly as I'd like.
