Web focused on the one young man who remained standing.

Web focused on the one young man who remained standing. His head was swathed in a red do-rag symbolizing some gang allegiance. The kid had a toothpick waist and barbell shoulders; ratty gym shorts hung down past his butt crack and a tank shirt rode lopsided across his muscular torso. Most people would describe Web London, with his broad shoulders and standing six-foot-two, as a big man. Usually, though, people focused on the condition of the left side of his face, or what remained of it. Web had to grudgingly admit that it was amazing, the reconstruction they could do these days with destroyed flesh and bone.

I'm a Baldacci fan, but for me this book disappoints in several ways. Lost a star as a result. The worst part is the continual formatting issue throughout the Kindle version-on almost every page, no exaggeration-in which the dialogue of one character is added to the dialogue of another in the same paragraph.

Last Man Standing book. Another spellbinding novel from Baldacci, a great storyteller. Looking forward to reading another Baldacci book. When Web London's FBI Hostage Rescue Team is ambushed in a dark. Recommended highly for those who love psychological thrillers.

Romano looked at her in surprise and then saw that she was staring at the ring on his finger. ted longer ago than I’d like to admit. I went there too. Pretty nice, going to college in New York. Nothing like it, agreed Romano. What was your major?. Who cares? I barely got in and I barely graduated.

David Baldacci writes books that hold your attention. His series of books 1) King & Maxwell 2) A. Shaw Series, 3) Amos Decker Series, 4) Will Robie Series, 5) John Puller Series, 6) Camel Club Series are all great along with his "stand alone" books. But for the "series" books, read them in order to get introduced to the characters and so that you are aware of previous events that are referred to in later books in the series. I have read them all and await his next book, whenever it is written ."Last Man Standing" is one of the "stand alone books".

I'm a Baldacci fan, but for me this book disappoints in several ways. Lost a star as a result.

The worst part is the continual formatting issue throughout the Kindle version--on almost every page, no exaggeration--in which the dialogue of one character is added to the dialogue of another in the same paragraph. The run-on and non-paragraphed dialgoue took me out of my 'suspension of disbelief' each time as I struggled to work out exactly who was talking.

There were also two very long conversations in which the author used no character tags whatsoever and I literally forgot which character was speaking. Had to go back and try to work it out so I could follow the plot. There's nothing wrong with names and 'he said,' Mr. Baldacci.

And finally, wow, the ending. Uh, quite a lead up and quite a let down for me. Probably for the main character, too. I would also like to suggest that the author spend a little less time showing off his encyclopedic knowledge of guns and horse trailers, etc. (Am from Virginia and grew up riding horses....)Write a non-fiction book, if you must, but get to the story, please.

If you like Tom Clancy's style, in which the author teaches a class in the middle of each chapter, well, then this book might be just the right thing for you. I've read the Will Robie books and Memory Man more than once. I would not pick this one up again. Amazon and Warner Books, get your Kindle formatting corrected. I sent corrections to Amazon as I plowed through. Surely, you have professionals who will do this for pay?

I can't judge prose very well, but this is okay. It's certainly better-edited than some recent stuff out there. There are two main problems: the plot, and the setup.

The plot is overly complex with 3-4 separate threads, and then huge coincidences are contrived to interlock those threads. Those coincidences have nothing to do with the novels resolution, save to allow a single sequence to bring all the threads to an end. As bad as the worst television I've seen ...

Compared with the travesty of the plot, the setup is merely lame. The FBI has lots of fine folks and I'm sure their paramilitary teams are skilled, tough people. However, the idea that FBI hostage rescue team personnel are far more deadly than those of hardened, black (i.e., unacknowedged) SOCOM teams is absurd.

I pushed through to the end of this to have the right to post this review. Your reading time is better spent elsewhere in this genre.

Web London has been hailed as a hero in previous missions with his hostage rescue team (HRT). He's been severely injured and carries the scars and disfigurement to prove it. But on the latest mission, everything goes horribly wrong. Web survives an unsurvivable situation and is suspected of being a coward or crook because he survived. For the rest of the story we follow Web as he tries to find the truth, meanwhile doing what he has always done, helping those who need it.

This book was very disappointing; it moved very slowly and had poor character development. It could have used an editor for sure! There were several punctuation errors that made me cringe, but the total use of the wrong word floored me! On more than one occasion a character was "put through the ringer"-no kidding! There was encyclopedic information about weaponry, if that many people are interested. I felt like it was written to be filmed as an adventure movie. I am hopeful that this a one-time aberration on Mr. Baldacci's part and not a degeneration like Patricia Cornwall had with her Kay Scarpetta books.

Excellent character development, generally slower-paced than his others and the story took a while to develop. It was a bit too wordy, too many plot deviations and perhaps too long. I really enjoy Baldacci. I consider him to be in the Vince Flynn mold but this was not one that I "could not put down". Nevertheless, when finished and reflecting back, it was still a good book. I've read most of his books (if not all of them) and always look forward to the next one.

David Baldacci has done it again. He has jumped into a new genre of topics and has produced a book that was a wonderful read. It has action, suspense, and a little gratuitous sex thrown in at the end for good measure. I read this in less than a week. It wasn't until the very end that everything became clear, and the pieces fit like a glove. I hate when I read a story and I find the pieces don't fit together, but in true Baldacci style even though the story line was convoluted at first but this was by design. Our hero had to go through hell but being in the pre-verbal s$%^t is nothing new. But our hero does weather the storm but when he exits the other side what we have is a new Baldacci hero that I see numerous stories in. If you like to read a story based around one of the heroes of our society, with a plethora demons that dog him but he also has a large contingent of friends who also will stand behind him and help him to prevail. Great book.
Would have given it a solid five but the editing was awful. Might have been a formatting problem. Many quotes from characters in the book were run together as though from one character. Hate to see a good book messed up because of poor editing or faulty formatting.
