The Whole Truth
The Whole Truth by David Baldacci is a terrifying global thriller that delivers all the twists and turns, emotional drama, unforgettable characters and can't-put-it-down pacing that Baldacci fans expect – and still goes beyond anything he's written before.
'I need a war . . .'
Nicolas Creel, a super-rich arms dealer, decides that the best way to boost his business is to start a new cold war – and he won't let anything or anyone get in his way.
As international tensions rise and the superpowers line up against each other, the lives of three very different people will never be the same again. As intelligence agent Shaw, academic Anna Fischer and ambitious journalist Katie James are all drawn into Creel's games, can anything stop the world from spiralling out of control?
The Whole Truth is followed by a second Shaw and Katie James novel, Deliver Us From Evil.
