Review: Divine Justice by David Baldacci (Rating 4 Wine Glasses)

Posted January 13, 2011 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 1 Comment


From Goodreads: Known by his alias, “Oliver Stone,” John Carr is the most wanted man in America. With two pulls of the trigger, the men who hid the truth of Stone’s past and kept him in the shadows were finally silenced. But Stone’s freedom has come at a steep price; the assassinations he carried out have prompted the highest levels of the United States Government to unleash a massive manhunt. Joe Knox is leading the charge, but his superiors aren’t telling him everything there is to know about his quarry-and their hidden agendas are just as dangerous as the killer he’s trying to catch. Meanwhile, with their friend and unofficial leader in hiding, the members of the Camel Club must fend for themselves, even as they try to protect him. As Knox closes in, Stone’s flight from the demons of his past will take him far from Washington, D.C., to the coal-mining town of Devine, Virginia-and headlong into a confrontation every bit as lethal as the one he is trying to escape.

What I Loved: The 2 simultaneous stories worked well in parallel.  When they finally came together it was a very good ending to the story.  Stone and Knox were great anti-heroes, they both were trying to do what they had to knowing that they were caught between a rock and a hard place.  Annabelle was a fantastic character also as a 3rd player in this thriller.

What I Liked: The pacing of this book was pretty good.  It did lag a bit at times but picked up pretty quickly.  You don’t have to read these books in order.  This is the first one I have read and never once felt lost.

Complaints: None

Audio Review:  I loved the narrator Ron McLarty, he was perfect for this book.  The music chapter changes though I am not a huge fan of and they were a bit distracting.

Why I gave this a 4: It was a good story from beginning to end.  The plot was solid and the characters believable.

Who I would recommend this too: People who enjoy political thrillers and enjoy intrigue.
