If I had picked this book up first, I wouldn't have read the others.

Not as great as the first three. My major complaint is that there are really a lot of characters (quite a few killed and a bunch of others) and so the book was awash in names. This is something I wouldn't complain about in a great piece of literature since I expect that to make me think and really focus. This, on the other hand, is an escape and frankly was too much work for that genre. My second, and more minor complaint, is that there were far fewer of those moments when, because of his prodigious memory, he put together small details that we had forgotten and came up with something brilliant. It seems like Baldacci is trying to make him more human and empathetic, Fine. Let's rename the series to "The Guy Who Remembers More Than You Do".
