Washington based David Baldacci has sold over 110 million books worldwide. He has published 33 novels.

His debut thriller Absolute Power was made into a Hollywood movie starring and directed by Clint Eastwood.
David has met at least four US presidents but not the most recent. He has close ties with the FBI and Secret Service agencies. Some agents relish in telling David about some of their missions knowing David will not compromise their identity or trust.
