Hello I’m R E Fort and welcome to my Book Reviews. I wish you a very Happy new Year. In this review, I’m covering the 4th book in the Atlee Pine thrillers Mercy by David Baldacci. The music track behind my voice in this post is the track Highway 101 from my 2017 CD 10. This track, the CD and a few of my other CD’s are available on all music streaming services and all of my music can be found on my website. Let’s get to the review.
In this review I am covering David Baldacci’s new addition in the Atlee Pine thriller series, Mercy. Let’s recap, Atlee or Lee is an FBI agent out of Arizona. She has spent her entire adult life searching for her twin sister Mercy, who was abducted when they were 6 years old. Leaving Lee in the hospital with a cracked skull and a shattered family.
Throughout the series, David weaves the story of Lee as a strong FBI agent solving crimes but haunted with memories of her twin sister. In each of the books he adds more to Lee’s search for her sister. In this story she finds out details about her sister’s abduction, why her family abandoned her and that her sister is alive and escaped from her captors.
As Lee and her assistant Carol get closer to finding her sister, a trail of intrigue, murder and crimes unfolds around them. Finding Mercy may lead Lee to more danger then she has ever experienced.
This book is a real thrill ride and to be honest I could not put it down. I read chapters repeatedly just to enjoy that ride over again. With surprise twists and turns throughout this story it is a captivating story and a great read.
On my scale of 1 to 5, 1 being don’t bother and 5 a real page turner, I give Mercy a solid, 5. This was a great story and one I fully suggest to all that enjoy a good mystery and thriller.
