  1. I ve never read David Baldacci before, but had heard he is mystery thriller writer in the vein of Nelson DeMille, James Patterson or Lee Child I erroneously thought this Kindle Single would be a good entry point to the author I was mistaken.Let s set aside that this is a work of speculative fiction featuring one of the hardest aspects to do correctly view spoiler time travel hide spoiler , and not a mystery thriller This was okay with me because I love speculative fiction, when it is done well A [...]

  2. Shockingly bad coming from such a big name writer NO TIME LEFT is boring, nonsensical, pointless, unsatisfying, and poorly written overall You can see the surprise ending which is totally stupid coming a mile away I m usually something of a pushover when it comes to short stories, but this was just embarrassing.

  3. This is a freebie book on my ipad.I ve read almost all of David Baldacci s books since his Absolute Power debut book This is my first time reading a short story by him, about a hired killer s life with a time travel twist at the end Tight and well written.

  4. Think deep Nice interesting twist for a specialist Takes you right to the end to verify your suspensions Interesting twist for a good hired to kill thriller

  5. Originally published at Red Adept Reviews Overall 4 starsPlot Storyline 3 starsAlmost all the reviews I ve read have been pretty negative, and so I had no idea how I would feel about the story Some of this seems to have to do with the reviewers possibly being fans of the author, or at least knowing his name, but not particularly fans of short stories Some of these reviewers dinged the story for not making it clear why the events happened, the motives of the character that set the plot on motion [...]

  6. I never thought that there would ever come a day, when I d have to say that David Baldacci has written something not worth reading, but here you go Thankfully, this is but a short story, which only came out as an eBook, because if it were a novel I d feel really disappointed The protagonist in this story is a man called Frank Becker, a professional assassin, who likes to undertake the most complicated, or rather challenging missions When it comes to killing he is a man full of surprises We first [...]

  7. I got suckered in to buying this audio short story for a buck Glad I only wasted a dollar on it It was like a 1st chapter than a short story I m not sure exactly what the point was to be honest It was an interesting concept but it really needed an ending to tie it all together and clue me in to what it was all about Or, perhaps I just missed the point Who knows I m not sure it was really even worth a dollar.

  8. With such a short short story, it is hard not to offer any spoilers Baldacci is usually quite good, bringing the story along with narration and character interaction This was not as Baldaccian as I usually expect, but still told an interesting tale of sorts I was not all that impressed with the premise, as this is not Baldacci s style, but the plot and the ending did have my eyebrows raising a few times.

  9. Very short short story Took me less than thirty minutes I don t see the point in writing this book you can t even call it that, except, perhaps, to make a quick buck from those loyal followers who would promptly snap up any work from this author Even I can do better than this Bad Bad bad I want my thirty minutes back.

  10. It s a pretty good short story, but I do want to emphasize the short it took me about five minutes to read it You can usually get a pretty good gauge of how long a Kindle book is by the size in kilobytes on the book description page, and I thought this one would be longer at almost 200 KB it must be the graphics at the end advertising other Baldacci books.The story has an interesting little plot, but not much character development or interaction due to the length of the short story However, Bald [...]

  11. If you time travel how can you have no time left It is pretty hard to review this book without spoilers, and quite honestly you ll want to read the spoilers so you won t waste your time This short story is about an assassin who is hired to kill his own mother in the past He does so, he ceases to exist End of story.Don t worry, I didn t ruin anything for you.This was so predictable as to be confusing How could such a popular author churn out such a generic waste of space as this story Baldacci of [...]

  12. Not the usual intricate and involved plotting of a David Baldacci novel The end was a bit predictable Wasn t all that impressed The story is about an assassin and the beginning has him doing a job then he meets another client and takes on another job that ends up being his last It didn t really explain how the time travel happened, who the client really was and why he hired him.

  13. Loved the ending even though I saw it coming This was my first time reading Baldacci, and I can see myself reading .

  14. A young Reacher, under age but got a big man attitude.Young and cocky, a little too familiar with NYC in moving around Prelude to the quiet drifter character Like a flashback.

  15. A really short storyI wish there had been to add to the story If you like short stories this one really makes you wonder.

  16. CheatedI expected a book and got three chapters Bummer I have no words left to express my surprise and disappointment.

  17. Even as a short story, David Baldacci takes you through a whole story from background to events to a surprise ending Very good

  18. A bit predictable once he went back to 1950, since the main character was just about to turn 50 at the start of the story.Ah well, it wasn t too bad for a really short story.

  19. This was just a weird little story and quite disappointing from Baldacci Thank heavens it was just a very short story
