Review: Absolute Power by David Baldacci (Audiobook)

Available for the first time Unabridged on CD in an all-new recording by Scott Brick, the first of the blockbuster thrillers by New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci. The book that will change the way you think about Washington - and power - forever.

In a heavily guarded mansion in a posh Virginia suburb, a man and a woman start to make love, trapping a burglar behind a secret wall. Then the passion turns deadly, and the witness is running into the night. Because what he has just seen is a brutal slaying involving the president of the United States.

Luther Whitney is the career break-in artist who's in the wrong place at the wrong time. Alan Richmond is the charming U.S. president with the power to commit any crime. And Jack Graham is the young attorney caught in a vortex between absolute truth and... ABSOLUTE POWER

Received from the publisher for review.

I'd actually read this as a book when it first came out in paperback. Both the book and the film adaptation were excellent.

This one gets five stars. The story itself gets four stars, but coupled with the amazing Scott Brick's voice it jumps to five. The story was just as good as I remembered and leaves you with a “Damn, that was good” feeling that makes you just want to tell someone else about the awesome book you just finished. This is definitely highly recommended!

★★★★★ = Loved It

Is it bad that I've never read one of his books?
