Home David Baldacci Total Control. On the flight deck the two-member crew struggled valiantly with the controls as their damaged aircraft shot downward through the overcast skies like a spear through cotton.

Home David Baldacci Total Control. Unsure of the precise nature of this catastrophe, they nevertheless were well aware that the aircraft and all lives on board were in significant jeopardy. As they frantically tried to regain control of the aircraft, the two pilots silently prayed they would collide with no other plane as they hurtled to earth. Several minutes after the plane leveled off at twenty-nine thousand feet, the beverage cart rolled by and Sidney got a cup of tea and the obligatory bag of salty peanuts. The elderly man next to her shook his head when asked for his beverage request and continued to stare anxiously out the window. Sidney reached down and pulled her briefcase from underneath the seat in anticipation of doing some work for the next half hour. I'll leave a couple of visitor badges for the press conference if you and Ray want to come see the show. It's at Triton's headquarters. Sawyer considered the request for a moment.

With respect to the Federal Reserve Board, suffice it to say the idea of this country's economic destiny being, in large measure, controlled by a handful of people who meet in secrecy without much in the way of supervision by anyone was irresistible to me from a storytelling point of view. Truth be known, I've probably understated the Fed's iron grip on all our lives.

I have read many of Baldacci's books and liked all of them, so far. This, however, is crap. The characters feel flat and two dimensional and the dialog is stilted and cringeworthy. I half-expected the villain to be twirling a waxed mustache. Of course, Amy has inherited her mother's thick blond hair, her father's piercing blue eyes and his athletic grace. Athletic grace at two?! Just mom's hair? Baldacci hastens to inform us that the stunning Sidney was a whip thin star college basketball star with...large breasts. Sadly, staying super fit (could we hear more about his abs?), incredibly smart, career-driven and a dad didn't leave Jason time to learn about the real world and that crooks don't play fair. The transitions between the predictable plot sequences are awkward. The book reads like it was written by a first time novelist. I now see whay it has been reduced in price.

If the Bible ever needs a Fifth Golpel David Baldacci should write it. Sacrilegious of me? probably... but true.
Everything that he writes is ipso facto a hit, and Total Control is excellent. When I write a review I like to just say the way I felt when I read the book and why... and this novel has everything to make one feel complete while reading it and after one has finished it. The characters are good and each has a valid reason to be what they are; the plot is well planned, and for what I can see and recognize, the research was well done as well.
Read it, it's one of those novels that you will read again in the future.

An enjoyable read. The compelling characters are reasonably well developed, and remain relatively consistent. (Except for Sydney who morphs into Wonder Woman). The story develops consistently (without the ridiculous plot twists of many authors) and the exciting well-paced action keep the reader going until the end. The author earns the readers' "suspension of disbelief" to overlook many inconsistences, implausibilities, and plot threads which are left hanging.

TOTAL CONTROL
The title tells the story---computer geniuses who can do ANYTHING, literally. That's lazy and poorly chosen device, because it creates a universe without rules, in which the reader does not have sufficient information to participate; to evaluate possibilities; or to anticipate plot developments.

A CAST OF THOUSANDS
Not quite thousands, but there are about 2 dozen major characters---way too many for me to keep track of, even taking notes.

TOO MANY PLOT THREADS--TOO MANY RED HERRINGS
The reader patiently waits for story to crystalize, but it never does. For example, characters wear elaborate disguises, and characters' voices are faked, so the reader can't be sure that a described event actually happened.

UNSATISFYING RESOLUTION
This is one of those novels where the resolution consists of the confessions of 2 "villains" on the last pages of the novel---almost always a poor storytelling technique. The resolution is simultaneously predictable, incomplete, and unsatisfying. Even having re-read those final pages several times it is unclear to me why Jason Archer was abducted in the first place, nor why many of the other key events happened.

Total Control was written in the 1990s by author David Baldacci. It is a fast paced thriller. Sidney Archer is a well paid and respected attorney and her husband Jason is a tech whiz at a famous technological company. He is thought to have been killed in a plane crash from Washington DC to Los Angeles. Why did he tell his wife he was leaving on the flight when actually he was on the way to Seattle? Why was the chairman of the Federal Reserve Board among the victims of the plane crash on the DC to LA flight? How deeply is Sidney Archer involved in all the mystery? The FBI becomes involved and the pages fly by. The book deals with technological and financial matters which were hard to follow for this old English major!
The book is just OK and not one of the author's best.

This is a book that is really hard to put down. Each chapter brings a new dimension to the plot that keeps you guessing the entire time. What could possibly be next? A complicated crime that involves big business, International monetary policy, complicated and overlapping motives from several individuals that could possibly think up some treacherous ways to gain total control of the electronic world; cyberspace. It begins with a mysterious changing of airline tickets at an airport, and the plane that Jason was supposed to be on crashes, killing 181 people. It was clearly sabotage, and the hunt begins to discover who could have possibly done this heinous crime, and why? A look at the passengers on the aircraft brings potential motives into focus, and couple this crash with the missing person who deceptively boarded another plane, and the thrill is on. Jason is married to a lovely, intelligent lawyer who is involved as lead counsel on an enormous business merger. Jason works for the company that she represents in the merger. Jason’s deception looks and acts like business espionage at the highest level possible, and big money is on the line. Everything looks terrible for this couple, and it gets worse as both of their lives become endangered and their careers devastated by mastermind criminals who devise every scheme designed to make them look guilty and complicit. Fast paced story with an exciting finish.
