Description

Introducing a remarkable new character from number-one New York Times best-selling writer David Baldacci: Atlee Pine, an FBI agent with special skills assigned to the remote wilds of the southwestern United States who must confront a new threat...and an old nightmare.

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe. Catch a tiger by its toe.

It's seared into Atlee Pine's memory: the kidnapper's chilling rhyme as he chose between six-year-old Atlee and her twin sister, Mercy. Mercy was taken. Atlee was spared. 

She never saw Mercy again. 

Three decades after that terrifying night, Atlee Pine works for the FBI. She's the lone agent assigned to the Shattered Rock, Arizona resident agency, which is responsible for protecting the Grand Canyon. 

So when one of the Grand Canyon's mules is found stabbed to death at the bottom of the canyon - and its rider missing - Pine is called in to investigate. It soon seems clear the lost tourist had something more clandestine than sightseeing in mind. But just as Pine begins to put together clues pointing to a terrifying plot, she's abruptly called off the case. 

If she disobeys direct orders by continuing to search for the missing man, it will mean the end of her career. But unless Pine keeps working the case and discovers the truth, it could spell the very end of democracy in America as we know it....

Baldacci still has it!!!!

Loved the book! David Baldacci is one of those authors who has not lost his touch. My only question is when will he have time for a forth series? Between Will and John and Amos, he's added Atlee Pine. The man will have to become a speed writer!
If you're a fan of Baldacci you will not be disappointed. I won't elaborate on the publisher's summary or I risk spoiling this book for someone else. I think it's nice that he's decided to make his lethal protagonist a woman as opposed to the just backing up the male protagonist.
Brittany Pressley and Kyf Brewer do an excellent job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATIONS.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Damn, Baldacci is good!

Great story with outstanding narration! LONG ROAD TO MERCY is the best novel that I have read or listened to this year. FBI Special Agent Atlee Pine is a new David Baldacci character and I suspect this the first novel in the Atlee Pine series. Just get Long Road to Mercy and listen to it. You will not regret it.

Second narrator ruins everything

I wanted to like this book. But someone made the decision to use a second, male narrator to voice only the spoken parts said by male characters. The main narrator is fantastic, but the male narrator is terrible! And there's an awkward pause before and after every utterance by a male character. It's very distracting and ruined the book completely. I could not finish it.

DISAPPOINTING! THIS CAN'T BE BALDACCI

Terrible plot/story line. Amateur at best. Unrealistic. The main character and her side kick secretary could have possibilities for humorous crime solving, but this story was all over the place without any in depth cohesiveness. The final big scene was nothing short of impossible. The female narrator was okay. The male narrator was TERRIBLE! He took a highly decorated, black ops ranger and made him sound like Jethro from the farm with a double digit IQ! He was just as bad on every male character. It is all I can do not to return this book on principle of where was Baldacci when this was written?!

Terrible Male reading and stupid story. I

I couldn't finish the book. The female narrator was good but the male sounded like a moron.

Inane Plot Ruins a Promising New Series

I'm a big Baldacci fan and have listened to and enjoyed the Robie, Puller and Decker series. I was looking forward to a new series from him with a female protagonist. And while I think Atlee Pine has potential, the inane plot she was stuck in for this book just ruined what could have been a great launch to a new series. What I thought was going to be a thriller started off well but then deteriorated into a girls road trip, complete with references to Thelma and Louise, and segued into a hike down into the Grand Canyon that was just too ridiculous to even suspend disbelief. The secondary characters, including the villains, weren't memorable or believable. The narrators were tolerable when listened to at 1.25 speed.

Disappointed

the performance Kyr Brewer was a disappointment. His gruff voice did not go with Brittany Presley.

This can't be Baldacci.....

This feels like a story written as a teen thriller, not a Baldacci mystery thriller. There is no way people actually talk like this. Pretty disappointed in this title.

This has to be the most pointless storyline EVER!!

Struggled to finish. Characters seemed juvenile and petty at times. Disappointing work from David Baldacci.

uncharacteristic let down

I enjoy Baldacci stories and had high hopes but this one was ho-hum for me.

Spannend aber weit hergeholt

Ich habe schon viele Buecher von Baldacci gelesen/ gehört und mag seine Erzählweise und finde sie alle spannend. Dieses fand ich allerdings doch eher weit hergeholt und unglaubwuerdig von der Geschichte her. Da es Baldacci erzählt, bleibt man dennoch dran und findet es spannend, Sehr gut gelesen.
