Review: Deliver Us From Evil by David Baldacci

Evan Waller is a monster. He has built a fortune from his willingness to buy and sell anything and anyone. In search of new opportunities, Waller has started a new business venture: one that could lead to millions of deaths all over the globe. On Waller’s trail is Shaw, who must prevent Waller from closing his latest deal. Shaw’s one chance to bring him down will come in the most unlikely of places: a serene, bucolic village in Provence. But someone else is pursuing Waller in Provence—Reggie Campion, an agent for a secret vigilante group headquartered in a musty old English estate—and she has an agenda of her own. Hunting the same man, unaware of each other’s mission, Shaw and Reggie will be caught in a deadly duel of nerve and wits.


Deliver Us From Evil is somehow similar from the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Although the story is a bit different. It's about two different organizations that is devoted in ridding of evil around the world. Pretty heavy huh? Anyways, we are introduced to Shaw and Reggie Campion. I immediately fell in love with the both of them. Their organization is in search of a man named Evan Waller, a Canadian businessman who is involved in human trafficking and is engage in selling nuclear weapons to terrorists.  Both Reggie and Shaw didn't know that they were after the same man. They had this feeling that both of them is hiding something from the other. In the end they help each other to bring Evan Waller down and serve justice to all his victims.

But it turned out that Evan is much more than meets the eye. He is the highest form of evil that it makes me sick to think the things that he had done to those innocent people.  I bet you're asking why I'm so affected with this novel. I used to watch the history channel and there was this topic regarding the German Nazi and how they killed and tortured people. I was really appalled and angry at the same time after watching a special documentary about Hitler's invasion. In this book, Evan's madness is vividly described by David Baldacci and there were times that I was a bit scared because I can't imagine a human being inflicting such violent deeds towards a fellow human being. That's why we really can't explain evil and why it sometimes consume and devour us. This book is highly recommended! Get a copy now!
