Saving Faith by David Baldacci
In a secluded house not far from Washington DC, 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 she’ll 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 must flee for her life – with her story, with her deadly secret and with an unknown man she’s forced to trust.
I bought this book from here and this is my first encounter with David Baldacci. I enjoyed Saving Faith for what it is - a without pretendence espionage thriller with the good guys and the bad guys and the traitors and makes you wonder who’s the good guys and who the bad guys are. Washington DC is the city of focus and the author gave us an insight to political lobbying in action and which are facts and which are fictions will be very much your personal opinion.
Although this book was written in 1999, it’s an enjoyable and exciting read right from the start. With both the FBI and CIA hunting for her, you might think that Faith has no hope of survival, but have faith (pun intended) for to me the title refers to more than just saving a woman. It’s about saving/having the faith to keep us going when all else fails.
