Book Review: One Good Deed by David Baldacci


This novel, set in 1949, introduces a new character, Archer, a WW11 veteran who has recently been released from prison, where he served time for a crime he didn’t commit.

On his release, he encounters many obstacles that make it difficult to honour his parole conditions. His good intentions to stay out of trouble are challenged over and over.

My Thoughts

I enjoyed this character and look forward to the next in his series. The storyline had me hooked from the start and I enjoyed the historical aspect. I’m not a regular reader of crime but would definitely recommended this novel.

Star Rating ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  1. Sounds good. I never thought I would like crime novels either but I actually really do. The premise of One Good Deed is widely used and has been done before from the sounds of it. In such stories of Nicky Cruz. The Cross and the Switchblade, Run Baby Run etc..

    Thanks for sharing!


  2. Hi Jackie I must apologise for not replying to your comment. For some reason, that I don’t know, it went to span, and I’ve just seen it. I’m interested to check out the titles that you mentioned. Thanks so much for visiting.
