Description

Murder and family secrets, a touch of romance and deeply felt revenge - with the twist of all twists - make up the ingredients of One Good Deed. A gripping audiobook for all those who love mystery, crime, Raymond Chandler and Agatha Christie from one of the world's favourite thriller writers, David Baldacci.

In 1949, Aloysius Archer arrives in the dusty Southern town of Poca City. He has nothing but a handful of dollars, the clothes he’s wearing and an appointment with his new parole officer. After his wartime experiences in Italy and a prison sentence for a crime he didn’t commit, Archer is looking for a fresh start and a peaceful life.

On his first night of freedom, Archer meets local business tycoon Hank Pittleman, who promises Archer handsome compensation to work as his debt collector. Yet Archer takes on more than he bargains for, as he becomes embroiled in a long-running feud between the drought-struck town’s most dangerous residents. When one of them dies, the authorities label Archer as their number one suspect.

A bloody game is being played above and below the law. Everybody playing has a deeply buried secret, and Archer must uncover them all - if he’s to avoid going back behind bars.

A good book with good narration

I'm a big fan of David Baldacci, already owning a lot of his books and this one did not disappoint. It is set in 1949 America and features a returned serviceman, Aloysius Archer, who has just been released from prison after serving a sentence for a crime he did not commit. Incorporating period language and terminology with solid character development, this book tells the story of his encounters with powerful men and beautiful women in a small town where no-one is really who they seem. Framed for murder, Archer must expose the hidden secrets of the rich and powerful to save himself. This book was well narrated by Edoardo Ballerini and occupies a place in the top tier of my library. Perhaps this is the start of a new series from David Baldacci?

Not the best Baldacci, but a good crime story

I have read every single Baldacci, but struggled with the story and era of this book. In the end it wasn't too bad, but not his best work.

NOT what I expect from Baldacci

If you like soap operas this book will satisfy. So BORING could not get into the tale. Predictable and very ho hum.
