Synopsis

Deliver Us From Evil is Hitchcockian in its intimate build-up of suspense and filled with the remarkable characters, breathtaking plot turns and blockbuster finale that are David Baldacci's hallmarks.

A global disaster
Evan Waller is a monster. He has built a fortune from the suffering of others. And his new plan threatens to result in the deaths of millions of people all over the globe.

Only one man can stop him
On Waller’s trail is Shaw, a mysterious operative who travels the globe neutralizing threats for a highly secretive organization. Shaw’s one chance to bring Waller down will come in the most unlikely of places: a serene village in Provence. Meanwhile, journalist Katie James, an old contact of Shaw’s, surfaces from the past to join him in his hunt.

A deadly pursuit
Waller’s depravity and ruthlessness go deeper than Shaw knows, and now there is someone else pursuing him as well – Reggie Campion is an agent for a secret vigilante group with an agenda of her own.
Hunting the same man, and unaware of each other’s mission, Shaw, Katie and Reggie will be caught in a deadly duel of nerve and wits against a surprising, secretive enemy . . .

High-stakes action, shadowy government agencies, and [a] neo-Cold War backdrop . . . Baldacci pushes his plot ahead at such a blistering pace
