Picks and Pans Review: Last Man Standing
After a blown raid in the nation's capital, G-man Web London, who has already been disfigured in a Waco-like standoff, makes it through an ambush that leaves every other member of his elite squad, the Hostage Rescue Team, dead. Feeling guilty, and mistrusted by colleagues who think he wimped out to save his own hide, Web is determined to find out why he survived.
With the exception of the token love interest, a pretty shrink, the testosterone-fueled cast (some growl "Bang 'em and hang 'em") is engagingly fierce, and Baldacci's thickly layered, brain-teasing plot leaves you wanting more. (Warner, $26.95)
