In David Baldacci's latest Atlee Pine thriller, A Minute to Midnight, our heroine's career is on the line when she continues to be haunted by the abduction of her twin sister. Was Mercy killed thirty years ago? Is she still alive? Agent Pine is more determined than ever to find the truth, but a serial killer ends up distracting her investigation...
As prolific a writer as David Baldacci is, he's also a voracious reader. We asked him recently why reading is important. "You read to expand your horizons. You read to trample prejudice and ignorance. You read to make yourself more empathetic. You read to empower yourself to be a full participant in a free society. You read because it’s fun. You read to enable yourself to think. So, if we don’t read, we will have none of those things. And we will be banished to inhabit a world that none of us would ever freely choose to experience."
Here's what he's been reading and enjoying lately.
