His books are published in over 45 languages and in more than 80 countries, with 150 million copies sold worldwide. She discovered many untruths she had been told throughout her life and while in town more murders are committed which she joins in the hunt with local police for the killers. She has a serious attitude, impulse, anger, and behavioral issues that are not addressed at all that probably stem from her getting her skull fractured and bashed in and nearly dying as a 6-year-old How she still has her job is anyone's guess.

Much later, when David thanked her for being the spark that ignited his writing career, she revealed that she'd given him the notebook to keep him quiet, "because every mom needs a break now and then. Also, the whole women empowerment thing sprinkled throughout felt straight out of the 60's/70's and was way over the top. I loved the previous book in this series as well as characters etc, also due to the location of the Grand Canyon. Overall an enjoyable read that gave me something to do on my long public transport journeys to work. But in a small town full of secrets — some of which could answer the questions that have plagued Atlee her entire life — and digging deeper into the past could be more dangerous than she realizes .Once again Baldacci has surpassed himself, and this series will no doubt appeal to ardent, long-term fans and those new to his novels too. Any book that pops back into my mind regularly and has me cogitating about "4 or 5 Stars", deserves the benefit of the doubt, even if I am not absolutely certain about it being "Amazing", so let's say it was "Excellent"! It all builds to an exciting ending as well as, of course, enough loose ends to get a good start on the next book. The audiobook narration was excellent - having one male and one female share the voices is definitely a better way to cover the range of accents and both were easy on the ear. A Minute to Midnight is, for the most part, about the murders, with a smaller chunk dedicated to Pine’s past.

This is the second in the FBI agent Atlee Pine series by David Baldacci, and it's a cracker of a sequel that opens with Pine in the Valley of Death in Colorado at ADX Florence, the only American federal super max prison visiting the narcissistic, sociopath serial killer, Daniel James Tor. If you have read Long Road to Mercy, Book one in the Atlee Pine series you will know what a fantastic character Atlee is. It was good, but not great, and set the stage for Baldacci’s (sort-of) first female lead protagonist. Cyrus Tanner and his dog, Roscoe, now live in her dilapidated childhood home, as Pine interviews various town residents about what happened that night, including Lauren Graham, Jackson Lineberry, and Myron and Britta Pringle. If you’d like to share your thoughts on David Baldacci or any of his books and characters (or any books in general), drop us a line in the comments below.Remembering that she and Mercy were excitable six year-olds at the time, Atlee wonders if her mind was slightly foggy about how the mystery man got into their room. Atlee is a proficient FBI Special Agent with a tumultuous past, she was attacked and left for dead when she was six years old and her twin sister Mercy was abducted, never to be seen again! Filling in some gaps in a narrative that Atlee had created, the disappearance of Mercy Pine remains a massive mystery. The story uses Atlee’s ongoing curiosity about her sister’s disappearance to permit the reader to see some of the backstory that she brings to the novel.
