Walk the Wire
by David Baldacci
There’s a genre of mysteries/thrillers that focus on the FBI and threats to national security which many readers love. David Baldacci writes quite a few of them, and his books are eminently readable. An added bonus is that you often get to learn a lot about the place they’re set. Walk the Wire is one of Baldacci’s most recent books, and is a fascinating depiction of what it’s like in a North Dakota fracking town.
We have an interview with David Baldacci on his favourite classic mystery books (where he also talks his literacy charity, the Wish You Well Foundation).
