Description

From the global #1 bestselling author, a New York Times bestselling thriller--in trade paperback for the first time ever!

A mysterious high-profile homicide in the nation's capital collides with the dark side of national security in David Baldacci's new, heart-stopping thriller.

TRUE BLUE

Mason "Mace" Perry was a firebrand cop on the D.C. police force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime--and then spent two years in prison. Now she's back on the outside and focused on one mission: to be a cop once more. Her only shot to be a true blue again is to solve a major case on her own. But even with her police chief sister on her side, she'll have to work in the shadows: A vindictive U.S. attorney will do anything to send Mace back to jail. Enter Roy Kingman...

A young D.C. lawyer, Roy meets Mace after the murder of one of his firm's female partners. Soon Roy and Mace are investigating together--and uncovering surprising secrets from both the private and public world of America's capital.

PRAISE FOR TRUE BLUE

"An absorbing thriller with a powerful message, but readers are most likely to remember it for its superbly appealing protagonist. Perry is smart and street-tough, and her eye for the telling detail in an investigation is unerring. Let's hope she appears in a new Baldacci title soon."--- Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Fast-paced and entertaining."--- Kirkus

"Baldacci has proven his ability to write well-paced thrillers that combine crime and politics in locations ranging from mean streets to opulent mansions."--- Booklist
