Is it just me or our thriller writers getting stale? David Baldacci's "Long Road to Mercy," was rather boring for the first 150 pages and then the pace picked up. As is always the case federal agent Atlee Pine had to go off the grid to crack a case involving, to begin with, a dead mule in the Grand Canyon. Relentlessly chasing the case agent Pine uncovers a deadly plot which could even lead to World War 111. After much violence it's a case of all's well that ends well; but the road does not lead to 'mercy.'
