Will is an agent working on executions sanctioned by the Agency. One of his targets is a woman, civil servant living with her two children. He decides last minute not to pull the trigger but a sniper fires off and kills her and her child. Will has to scramble out of the apartment before the sniper takes him out. He escapes the sniper and gets on board a bus that is destinied to NY. He sits in the back where he can observe people coming in. A few seats ahead of him is siting a a young girl. There is guy that sits behind her. When the bus starts to roll the guy tries to kill the girl but she used mace to repel him and Will goes up and subdues him. The girl decides to get off the bus and Will follows. As soon as they get off the bus explodes. This is where the plot starts to unravel with a steady flow. The characters could have used a little more definition. Like some of his other books, Baldacci, accelerates toward the end making it hard to put the book down.
