I followed Chris Moore’s wonderful, Razzmatazz, and with this Baldacci, a sequel to an earlier “Archer” novel. Follows that dime-store detective, potboiler romance, echo from a half a century back? Maybe more?
“I don’t like wannabe authoritarians who lie in order to destroy people who disagree with them.” Page 304.
But only an echo. Addictive reading, with stylized hard-boiled detective fiction.
