A FE­MALE FBI AGENT ON THE CASE

Cape Times - - BOOKS -

LONG ROAD TO MERCY David Bal­dacci Loot.co.za (R219) MACMIL­LAN

Bal­dacci steps up to a new level with the in­tro­duc­tion of FBI agent Atlee Pine, an orig­i­nal, feisty, fe­male lead char­ac­ter. Tall, ath­letic and a former Olympic-stan­dard weight-lifter and spe­cial­ist in mar­tial arts, she’s a nat­u­ral loner, posted to the wilds of the Grand Canyon in Ari­zona.

But she is also a twin whose sis­ter, at the age of six, was abducted from their bed­room by a se­rial killer. Pine is called to in­ves­ti­gate the dis­ap­pear­ance of a rider in the canyon, whose mule is killed and mu­ti­lated. So be­gins a story that in­volves a nu­clear de­vice, and sees the agent turn into a fe­male ver­sion of Ja­son Bourne.
