Saving Faith

Saving Faith In a secluded house not far from Washington, D.C., the FBI is interviewing one of the most important witnesses it has ever had: a young woman named Faith Lockhart. For Faith has done too much, knows too much, and will tell too much.

Feared by some of the most powerful men in the world, Faith has been targeted to die. But when a private investigator walks into the middle of the assassination attempt, the shooting suddenly goes wrong, and an FBI agent is killed. Now Faith Lockhart must flee for her life – with her story, her deadly secret, and an unknown man she’s forced to trust…It sounds like a movie pitch: “The story is like Tom Clancy crossed with John Grisham set in the Washington D.C. political world.” But David Baldacci’s Saving Faith successfully fuses elements from both of these chart-busters in this political thriller spiced with techno-wizardry.

The villain is a classic spy caricature: cold-war CIA super-patriot Robert Thornhill wants to reclaim the glory days of the Central Intelligence Agency–when money flowed like the Mississippi during a flood, and the FBI watched helplessly from the sidelines. Working from his secret underground bunker, he blackmails Danny Buchanan, one of the great Washington lobbyists, to front an enormous bribery scheme that will force Congress to bend to the CIA’s whims. But Thornhill’s plan springs a leak: Buchanan’s assistant Faith Lockhart discovers her boss’s dirty dealings, and she intends to expose the whole mess to Thornhill’s nemesis, the FBI. Thornhill’s associates attempt to assassinate Faith, but their bullet kills her FBI escort instead. Faith finds herself on the run with Lee Adams, a fit-and-trim PI who had been shadowing her at the behest of Buchanan.

If all this sounds a bit confusing, it is at times. Baldacci works hard to keep the tension steadily rising, but it is sometimes difficult to remember why Faith and Lee can’t just stop running and go for help. Nevertheless, they are very likable heroes, and Baldacci’s depiction of the world of lobbyists and the internecine warfare of the FBI and CIA (complete with state-of-the-art spy gadgets and transmission-proof chambers) elevates the novel with details that can come only from careful research. –Patrick O’KelleyIn a secluded house not far from Washington, D.C., the FBI is interviewing one of the most important witnesses it has ever had: a young woman named Faith Lockhart.

    I am a big fan of Baldacci, I always get my books as audio-CD to fill my commute time. I’ve enjoyed dozens of books on CD. This is a good story, but it was terribly difficult to listen toTHIS narrator and found myself just pleading for him to get to the end and stop reading to me !! Listening to this narrator go though the sentences of this story was almost like listening to someone reading a shopping list. But what made it even worse, was how the narrator finishes EVERY, and I mean EVERY, sentence (no matter which character) as though it was a last dieing breathhhhaaaah. After this book on CD, I now also need to check who is the narrator, and I will not do another book read by this narrator.

    I gave this book 4 stars because I did like it – most of the time. There were several pages and even a chapter or two that added nothing to the story and would not have been missed if they had been removed from the book altogether. Baldacci is so good at writing about government corruption and who spies on who but I felt he went off the track in many places. When he got back to the actual story of trying to save the life of Faith, the story was quite good. There were several times when I couldn’t figure out who was bad and who was good! All in all, a good story with some interesting characters but entirely too long with too much “fluff”.
