#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
In his final hours in office, the outgoing President grants a controversial last-minute pardon to Joel Backman, a notorious Washington power broker who has spent the last six years hidden away in a federal prison. What no one knows is that the President issues the pardon only after receiving enormous pressure from the CIA. It seems that Backman, in his heyday, may have obtained secrets that compromise the world’s most sophisticated satellite surveillance system.
Backman is quietly smuggled out of the country in a military cargo plane, given a new name, a new identity, and a new home in Italy. Eventually, after he has settled into his new life, the CIA will leak his whereabouts to the Israelis, the Russians, the Chinese, and the Saudis. Then the CIA will do what it does best: sit back and watch. The question is not whether Backman will survive—there is no chance of that. The question the CIA needs answered is, Who will kill him?
BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from John Grisham's The Litigators.

Didn't think Grisham could pull off technology like this. Great read!
The foreshadowing to an exciting end was nice.. The ending was cut short and some characters never evolved into the story..
A Nice Change of Pace
I'm an avid reader, and frankly was getting a bit board. This was a nice variance for Mr Grishom. A bit tedious at times with the touring of Italy, but an inspiring page turner.
