On November 17, 2016, Mary Ann and I went to a book signing for one of my favorite authors, David Baldacci. Up to that point I had read most of his books – 29 of them! He talked about his latest book “No Man’s Land”, his writing, and answered reader’s questions. David is a prolific writer, writing about 2 books a year as well as being involved in film projects related to his books. (I really enjoyed the book and movie “Absolute Power” with Clint Eastwood, Gene Hackman, and Ed Harris)
I found it interesting that he auctions off names in each of his book. The top donors to a charities get their name assigned to a character. He jokingly said that some people donate extra if he will kill off that person in the book.
Obviously I bought the book because I was looking forward to reading it as well as so he could sign it. “No Man’s Land” was riveting. I finished reading it in 4 days – It helps to be retired so I have more time to read!
If you like thrillers, pick one up and read it.
