"Matt, I need a war."

So begins David Baldacci's THE WHOLE TRUTH--a thriller unlike any he's ever written. ""Matt"" is Mathew Pender, of Pender Associates--a shadowy organization that specializes in managing seemingly impossible situations for its clients. Sometimes, those services extend to managing and creating armed conflict. When Matt Pender is asked by the largest defense contractor in the world to manipulate two nations against each other, a shocking and surprising series of events are set in motion that will possibly bring the world to the brink of World War III.

In this epic thriller with a global backdrop, David Baldacci delivers all the twists and turns, compelling characters, and can't-put-it-down pacing that listeners have come to expect from this master storyteller.

    I am an avid David Balducci Fan. I got hooked on the Camel Club series, then on to Michelle and Sean books, now I've discovered Matt in The Whole Truth. As in all Baldacci books, I was hooked after the first few paragraphs. I couldn't wait to be able to find the time to listen to the entire book. I was not disappointed. I will just say ORDER THIS BOOK !

    Have enjoyed Baldacci ‘s Mysteries in the past , but this one was too violent for my taste !

    Excellent listen, highly recommend. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because some of the world status updates were a bit lengthy.

    The book was good however, I would not suggest getting the abridged version (as I did). At times, I felt like I missed something. With so much happening at all times, I think you need to have all the details to follow the story properly.
