The videotape was short, crude and utterly chilling. “I am dead. I was murdered,” whispered the tortured man, saying that the release of the video would mean that he’d been executed as part of a massive ethnic cleansing being perpetrated by the Russian government.
Within days, this clip becomes the most viewed, downloaded and blogged item on the Internet. The Middle East and North Korea are all but forgotten. Suddenly, they seem insignificant when compared to the threat that Russia—which has nearly as many nukes as the U.S—is reverting back to its Evil Empire ways.
What people don’t know is that the tape isn’t real, but was manufactured by a mysterious figure intent on nothing less than disrupting the global balance of power. Caught in his web is a shadowy intelligence operative and a hardened journalist who stumbles across the biggest break of her career—and helps set in motion a series of events that could forever change the world as we know it.
An absolutely spellbinding novel that feels all-too-real, The Whole Truth delivers all the twists, turns and can’t-put-it-down pacing that Baldacci fans expect—and still goes beyond anything he’s written before.
