For many long years, Atlee Pine was tormented by uncertainty after her twin sister, Mercy, was abducted at the age of six and never seen again. Now, just as Atlee is pressured to end her investigation into Mercy's disappearance, she finally gets her most promising breakthrough yet: the identity of her sister's kidnapper, Ito Vincenzo.
With time running out, Atlee and her assistant Carol Blum race to Vincenzo's last known location in Trenton, New Jersey -- and unknowingly stumble straight into John Puller's case, blowing his arrest during a drug ring investigation involving a military installation.
Stunningly, Pine and Puller's joint investigation uncovers a connection between Vincenzo's family and a breathtaking scheme that strikes at the very heart of global democracy. Peeling back the layers of deceit, lies and cover-ups, Atlee finally discovers the truth about what happened to Mercy. And that truth will shock Pine to her very core.
I listened to the first two books in the Atlee Pine series with the main character is a female FBI agent. She gets into some intense, suspenseful cases. She prefers working more independently in her small office, although she has worked in large offices, too. I love her assistant, Carol Blum, who is an older lady who has 6 grown children and has worked for the FBI for awhile. Carol helps take care of Atlee when she doesn’t take care of herself, and is a great member of the team.
Atlee is taking personal time to hunt for her abducted twin sister. Mercy was abducted when they were six. She gets caught up in a case with another Baldacci character, John Puller. It is a far-reaching scandal with ruthless criminals. Atlee and John are in grave danger. Some of the players have a connection to those who took Mercy.
With all the perilous action, and attempts to capture the criminals along with evidence, Atlee does learn some things. The knowledge allows her to track down more evidence and see past lies she has been told. There are some shocking reveals in Daylight. Since I am waiting for the next story, I can read the books in the John Puller series.
