I would like to thank both Net Galley and Macmillan for supplying a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. Just out of prison and trying to make his way in the world, he becomes embroiled in a murder. Baldacci has done it again and I can recommend this to those who love his work, as well as the reader who finds joy in crime thrillers. Baldacci is one of the finest plotters in the business. A murder takes place and ex prisoner Archer finds himself under police suspicion and he realises that this could easily take him back to prison. I have read many other David Baldacci books, and have enjoyed them greatly, so was very excited to be reading his latest book. Great character, great story, great portrait of an era -- Bill Clinton David Baldacci is one of the world's bestselling and favourite thriller writers.

A Book Spy Review: ‘One Good Deed’ by David Baldacci

So, David Baldacci must have stayed up late one night to watch Humphrey Bogart movies and decided to write a book set in the late 40s. Now, a few years later, he is once again a free man and sporting the long hair he decided to let grow out during his incarceration. What an excellent book, wonderfully written. If his name was not on the cover I would have never guessed that he wrote this. He is there to work, as well as to keep his eyes open.

Book Review: One Good Deed by David Baldacci

When a murder takes place right under Archer's nose, police suspicions rise against the ex-convict, and Archer realizes that the crime could send him right back to prison. A new storyline and I love Archer's character. It's an offer she dares to refuse. It was certainly out of the norm for a Baldacci book. I was able to read an advanced copy of this book thanks to NetGalley and the publishers in exchange for an unbiased review and would recommend it to fans of David Baldacci, those who enjoy first class storytelling or want to begin an exciting journey with a stand alone novel from an expert at thriller writing.

Book Review: One Good Deed by David Baldacci

That's exactly what he sets out to do, finding an unlikely ally in the form of one of the detectives on the case - who tells Archer he's got the makings to become a pretty good gumshoe which I'm taking as a clue that we'll see him again. It is here that his presence draws the interest of a well-to-do stranger, Hank Pittleman, who strikes up a conversation with him that ends with a sort of job offer. There was so much superfluous writing and unnecessary descriptions, filler and fluff. I was frustrated not knowing the state where the story is set, but he talks frequently about how dry and dusty the place is, so my guess is Arkansas or Oklahoma maybe. But he instantly recognizes the man's name: Meryl Hawkins.

One Good Deed by Baldacci, David (ebook)

Eager to gain employment and set himself on a new course Archer is given the task of collecting a debt for local high flying businessman Hank Pittleman. It could have been the narrator of the audio because the narrator could not do female voices at all. There is a short court scene at the end which is very entertaining and ties up all the details of who killed who. Highly recommended - oh, and more, please? I mean, seriously - talk to your mom or dad. Others have written a full synopsis better than I, just let it take you along on this wonderful adventure with thrills and surprises aplenty, and the court case and ending. John Puller is a combat veteran and the best military investigator in the U. I have read many books by authors who were alive and writing in 1949.

ONE GOOD DEED: Five Questions with David Baldacci

one good deed by david baldacci

By the time he has been there 24 hours he has way more trouble than he knows what to do with. His skills as an investigator are second to none and this is utilised effectively throughout, allowing Archer to grow and become even better liked by the reader. One night a few days later, Archer is walking in the area of The Cat's Meow and sees Jackie struggling with an obviously inebriated Hank. The main character Archer is a decent protagonist, he's likeable but with enough flaws to make him interesting. I don't know if it's me or just the fact that he's now writing around four books every year, but this didn't suck me in like his books usually do. But I miss the members of the Camel Club and the idiosyncrases of those earlier works that truly set him apart as an author with an original voice. In addition, Archer, the main character is slow to realize things and frequently puts his foot in his mouth.
