Publisher Description

Number one bestseller Long Road to Mercy is the heart-pounding first novel in the FBI Special Agent Atlee Pine series by bestselling author David Baldacci.

FBI Special Agent Atlee Pine has learnt three lessons in life:

Some wounds never heal.

Atlee’s twin sister, Mercy, was abducted from their bedroom over thirty years ago, and Atlee has spent every day since wondering what happened to her.

Time doesn’t lessen your pain.

The prime suspect, notorious serial killer Daniel James Tor, is in a high-security prison, but with no confession, Atlee continues to search for her sister, even as Tor taunts her from jail.

But she can always make a difference.

Wracked by survivor’s guilt, Atlee joined the FBI to hunt down killers like Tor. Assigned to the remote wilds of the Western United States, she has spent years honing her skills and building her endurance, always with one eye on the ultimate goal.

Now, Atlee Pine is tasked with an investigation which begins with a missing person in the Grand Canyon. And ends with a discovery much more sinister and far-reaching.

Continue the gripping series with A Minute to Midnight.

Good read

Enjoyed the twist and turns of this story but would have liked a conclusion for her twin sister in this book rather than have to read another which may or may not deal with a very sad situation A good thrilling story espionage murder politics an a detailed description of the grand cannonion with strong characters

Long winded

This is written well but my god it goes on forever, way past the point of being interesting. It’s also about national security and not a missing child. Worst Baldacci book I’ve read.
