56. First Family by David Baldacci...

March 22, 2009
David Baldacci's First Family is a thriller with non-stop action, lots of suspense, and a run-around-in-circles-till-you-figure-it-out mystery in the middle of everything.

When the First Lady's niece, Willa, is kidnapped on her 12th birthday, former Secret Service agents Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are asked to find her, even if they no longer serve in an official capacity. And in doing so, they unravel a secret that's been kept for 13 years, a secret that threatens to tumble the presidency into complete chaos. Figures that those who seek power will do just about anything to get it, and keep it. Regardless of who gets hurt in the process.

First Family was a very quick read, and it was good. It kept my attention, and all the details fit. The big secret wasn't completely obvious, neither was it totally obscured. And it wasn't the only mystery, either. If I say more, I'll be spilling, & I hate spoilers. If you just have to know, email me. =)

Hi Drey I think a DB giveaway sounds like a great idea. I like reading about Jack Bauer types running around in Washington. Er....maybe I have it confused with Kitty Goes to Washington. LOL!!!
Later Gator,
Robert

I'm looking forward to reading this one.
I like my books to be fast-paced-I usually read them in one sitting if they are-it's been a while since I've had one like that.
