Publisher: Warner Books
David Baldacci's Absolute Power was absolutely one of the most phenomenal books of its time. A first novel blockbuster that spent over four months on the New York Times bestseller list, it catapulted Baldacci to literary fame, became a highly publicized movie deal, and won rave reviews from critics coast to coast. Now Baldacci proves again that he is the new superstar in the thriller firmament, a total master of plot, pacing, and surprise.
Sidney Archer has the world. A husband she loves. A job which she excels, and a cherished young daughter. Then, as a plane plummets into the Virginia countryside, everything changes. And suddenly there is no one whom Sidney Archer can trust.
Jason Archer is a rising young executive at Triton Global, the world's leading technology conglomerate. Determined to give his family the best of everything. Archer has secretly entered into a deadly game of cat and mouse. He is about to disappear -- leaving behind a wife who must sort out his lies from his truths, an air-crash investigation team that wants to know why the plane he was ticketed on suddenly fell from the sky, and a veteran FBI agent who wants to know it all.
From Seattle to Washington, D.C., from New Orleans to Main, the hunt for Jason Archer follows a trail as complex as the world he lived and worked in -- a world of enormously powerful computers, a multimillion-dollar takeover deal, titanic financial standoffs, artificial intelligence, and the Internet. With brilliant minds colliding, ruthless men waging battles of intimidation, rainmakers going toe-to-toe with killers, and security specialists making a fortune trying to plug the holes, the startling truth behind Jason Archer's disappearance explodes into a sinister plot with the murder of the country's single most powerful individual.
And soon Archer's wife, Sidney, aided by the relentless and sharp-eyed FBI agent Lee Sawyer, will plunge straight into the violence that is leaving behind a trail of dead bodies and shocking, exposed secrets . . . .
In TOTAL CONTROL David Baldacci pulls out all the stops. Here is a novel that displays a breathtaking inside knowledge of the legal, financial, and high-tech fields as well as a master storyteller's gift for suspense and unforgettable characters -- from the courageous Sidney Archer to the egomaniacal head of Triton Global, to the soft-spoken computer genius who is the company's number one asset. And with a plot that astounds from the first page to the last, TOTAL CONTROL achieves total success. For this is by far the biggest, richest, and most satisfying thriller of the year.
