Publisher's Summary

Daylight is the gripping follow-up to Long Road to Mercy and A Minute to Midnight featuring Special Agent Atlee Pine from one of the world’s most favourite thriller writers, David Baldacci.

FBI Agent Atlee Pine’s search for her twin sister, Mercy, coincides with Military Investigator John Puller’s high-stakes case, leading them both into a global conspiracy from which neither of them will escape unscathed. Ever since Mercy was abducted after a brutal incident when the girls were just six years old, Atlee has been relentless in her search for the truth. 

Now, just as time is running out on her investigation, she finally gets her most promising breakthrough yet - the identity of her sister’s kidnapper: Ito Vincenzo. Last known location: New Jersey.

As Atlee and her assistant, Carol Blum, race to track down Vincenzo, they run into Pine's old friend John Puller, who is investigating Vincenzo’s family for another crime involving a military installation. Working together, Pine and Puller pull back the layers of deceit, lies and cover-ups that strike at the very heart of global democracy. And the truth about what happened to Mercy is finally revealed. And that truth will shock Atlee Pine to her very core.

Captivating Page-turner

An amazing and well-penned third book in the Atlee Pine series by David Baldacci. In a quest to unearth the truth shrouded in the abduction of Atlee Pine's twin sister thirty years back, she takes consent from her boss alongside her administrative colleague for an additional few days. As she is tracing down the whereabouts of a possible suspect responsible for the abduction, she stumbles upon his grandson who is a fugitive wanted by military operations. Though he manages to give her a slip, the CID military officer and Atlee Pine join forces to nab him. The duo unearths a gargantuan conspiracy with far-reaching consequences, that need to be thwarted soon. In the process, they barely manage to escape attempt on their lives. However, the protagonist is undeterred by these hurdles and succeeds in finding more about her parent's job, the leaks in the system, what transpired during her childhood that led to the abduction of her sister and by whom, and finally what happened to her sister thereafter. A high octane page-turner that is strongly recommended for thriller lovers. It is advised to read the previous two books to comprehend the role and importance of each of the characters in the novel, although it can be read as a stand-alone. Waiting for the next one in the series of Atlee Pine.

Keeps growing

The characters are now fully developed. Altee is still hunting for her sister, and following the clues from the last book thing start to move forward. During her investigations she crosses paths with an old friend Puller and gets caught up in his investigation. Things are once again fast paced and very well written and performed. Looking forward to the win this series. The character of Pulled is such that his own spin off would not be a surprise.

Terrible

I want to make this clear, I love Baldacci and The Escape is one of my favourite books ever. The whole Atlee Pine series hasn’t been very good but they have been interesting enough to get through. But this latest one is terrible, it is poorly written, the story is all over the place, the time line doesn’t seem to match up and how an FBI agent get away with all the things Pine does is beyond belief. Pine seems to be untouchable while everyone around her gets the worst of it and that includes John Puller, which before this book was without doubt the best character of Baldacci’s collection. I will pause before I read any more of the Atlee Pine books.

lost twin story getting bit tedious but good read

baldacci needed to sort out the twin story in this book as I've lost interest in finding out what happened to her. He can use Atlee Pine as a standalone character with new stories without the 'mercy' mystery running alongside. I don't really care about her any more. the ending was stupid

couldn't listen

Was really excited for this have loved reading the series but as soon as I turned it on I couldn't stand the sound of the reader and the changing readers, will have to go old fashioned for this one in a book switched off after five minutes.
