He longs for freedom.
After his wartime experiences in Italy and a prison sentence for a crime he didn’t commit, Archer is looking for honest work and a peaceful life.

She seeks revenge.
On his first night in town, Archer meets the enigmatic, beautiful Jackie Tuttle, who is playing her own game to right past wrongs – by whatever means necessary.

They both want justice.
When Archer’s new employer ends up dead, he realizes this drought-stricken town is bloodier than he bargained for. In the wake of the murder, Archer and Jackie both stand to lose everything. But what is Jackie hiding from him about her past?

Everybody involved has a deeply buried secret – and Archer must uncover them all if he’s to avoid going back behind bars.

One Good Deed represents David Baldacci’s move into historical crime with a new character, ex-jailbird Aloysius Archer . . . Unsurprisingly, the talented Baldacci proves to be as adept in this new venture as he is in his contemporary-set novels’ Financial Times
