A political thriller with nonstop action, and an astounding look into the inner sanctums of our government.
The villain Robert Thornhill, a deputy director of The Central Intelligence Agency hates the FBI because they have more money & power than his CIA. This character is the ultimate bad guy. You get the impression that he has no good in him at all. In a wooded area of Northern Virginia a small house at the end of a gravel road, security apparatus and hidden, miniaturized cameras is being used by the FBI to interview one of the most important witnesses the agency has ever had. A few people know about the secret meeting, and a violent drama is about to begin for them. Faith Lockhart is the secret witness who must go on the run with Lee Adams, a man that she does not know and does not trust yet.
Adams and Lockhart are very likable characters, but I felt that the author didn't develop his characters quite enough. I have no problem with language in a book, but it seemed to me that this one had too much foul language compared to his other books, but I feel it’s still to good a read to pass up.
Davis Baldacci is also the author of ABSOLUTE POWER, which is very good also. If you like SAVING FAITH and haven’t read ABSOLUTE POWER, I recommend it. It’s no wonder why David Baldacci is always on the New York Times Best Seller list.
