Travis Devine, ex-Army Ranger, is back fresh off his last adventure in The 6:20 Man. This time, he’s off to a rural town in Maine to solve the murder of a CIA operative, Jenny Silkwell, and the daughter of a friend of his boss. When he gets to the small town of Putnam, ME, Devine finds a cast of characters who all seem to be hiding something. From the victim’s brother and sister to the local ME. Add to that, Jenny’s laptop, which might hold government secrets, is missing.  Was she killed because of an incident that happened to her sister years ago, or is her death tied to her job at the CIA? Devine will have to find out, and fast.

The Edge is a fast-paced thriller that will keep on the edge of your seat (pardon the pun). Devine is as fascinating in his second outing as he was in the first, and the action just keeps coming. If you want a thriller that will keep you engrossed from start to finish, pick up The Edge today.

Another great thriller from David Baldacci, Five stars.
