Hour Game

Mom loaned me Hour Game by David Baldacci for the trip to Cancun. I pulled it out to read the second day we were there, and would have finished it in one sitting, except that it was rather chilling in parts, so I had to alternate it with two other books so I wouldn't get too scared to sleep!

This is a murder mystery, and also a book about crummy families. I was fairly surprised when the killer was revealed, but then the book wasn't over yet. I had about a chapter or two to go when we deplaned in Atlanta, so I finished it while running through the airport behind Steve to the customs line. Yeah, it was that compelling!

The book is set in a small town in Virginia, fairly close to Washington, D.C., with a couple of former FBI agents as the detectives. The action moved along, most of the plot was convincing, and just about everything came together in the end. I'll be reading more books by David Baldacci in the future.

I have enjoyed some of Baldacci's fast-paced novels, but by far place Wish You Well at the top of my list (of his books).
