Deliver Us From Evil - David Baldacci

This book is scary. David Baldacci has a very active imagination and writes a fast paced thrill-a-minute book in most instances, but this one is outstanding.

The "monster" in this book is a man, but a man who loves power and enjoys killing people. He's changed his identity and is a very prosperous business owner now, but he hasn't changed his habits.

Shaw is going after him because he's now playing with nuclear power. But he's not the only one pursuing him! Reggie Campion, a member of secret vigilante group wants him dead for his past crimes.

Shaw and Reggie eventually realize they are going after the same man, and neither one of them is happy about it. They each have their own agenda and they both high achievers. However, sometimes you have to compromise. But are they really compromising?

As you close out the story and get into the last few chapters, you just keep reading and don't want to be interrupted. You know something bad is going to happen and you hope the good guys win. But the bad guys have all the weapons. And they have dogs on the trail...

You won't be bored if you read this one!

Grand Central provided me with this copy for review. Go get yourself a copy and read this one, because I can tell there will a sequel for follow up soon...
