Summary

A #1 New York Times bestseller

A #1 Amazon.com bestseller in War and Military Action Fiction

New York Times audio bestseller

The #1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci introduces an unforgettable new character: Archer, a straight-talking former World War II soldier fresh out of prison for a crime he didn’t commit.

It’s 1949. When war veteran Aloysius Archer is released from Carderock Prison, he is sent to Poca City on parole with a short list of dos and a much longer list of don’ts: do report regularly to his parole officer, don’t go to bars, certainly don’t drink alcohol, do get a job—and don’t ever associate with loose women.

The small town quickly proves more complicated and dangerous than Archer’s years serving in the war or his time in jail. Within a single night, his search for gainful employment—and a stiff drink—leads him to a local bar, where he is hired for what seems like a simple job: to collect a debt owed to a powerful local businessman, Hank Pittleman.

Soon Archer discovers that recovering the debt won’t be so easy. The indebted man has a furious grudge against Hank and refuses to pay; Hank’s clever mistress has her own designs on Archer; and both Hank and Archer’s stern parole officer, Miss Crabtree, are keeping a sharp eye on him.

When a murder takes place right under Archer’s nose, police suspicions rise against the ex-convict, and Archer realizes that the crime could send him right back to prison … if he doesn’t use every skill in his arsenal to track down the real killer.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Mega-selling mystery writer David Baldacci’s latest takes us back in time and introduces a new series protagonist that may become one of his most popular . . . a captivating page-turner.” Florida Times Union
“Narrator Edoardo Ballerini takes us into the life of recently released ex-convict Aloysius Archer. Listeners will find Archer, as performed by Ballerini, an appealing character. Archer moves to a fictional city in the Midwest, where he encounters, not just one, but two femme fatales, and a host of other good and bad folks. Ballerini expertly differentiates the many characters, male and female.” AudioFile
