Daylight – David Baldacci | A Book Review

Daylight - David Baldacci

Title: Daylight

Author: David Baldacci

Genre: Mystery Thriller

About the book: It’s the third novel in the Atlee Pine series that follows an FBI agent as she searches for her missing twin sister, Mercy. When the girls were six years old, Mercy was kidnapped, and Atlee’s search takes her to New Jersey. She accidentally stumbles into military investigator John Puller’s case. They work together to uncover a shocking scheme while Atlee discovers the truth about what happened to her sister.

First impressions: I’m a big fan of the author, so I was excited. I didn’t know that John Puller who is the main character in another one of Baldacci’s series would play such an important role in this novel, but I’m happy he did.

Characters: Pine and Puller are great individually, so I enjoyed their interactions. We see a different side of Atlee Pine, especially as the story goes on, which made her even more relatable in my opinion. There are many different characters, so it helps to have read the previous books.


“And sometimes dredging up the past can be more devastating than people realize.”

Writing: It’s a little over 475 pages, but the pacing doesn’t feel slow or dragged out. I found myself wanting to turn the pages. Some scenes are quite sad and mature.

Final thoughts: I can’t often predict exactly how Baldacci’s books will end, and this time was no exception. The ending answers some questions while setting the stage for the next novel. If you’re a fan of fast-paced crime thrillers about family and conspiracy, check out Daylight.
