When the kid sees them, he cackles. Uncharacteristically, this kid unnerves Web, but he proceeds with his team, working on getting his pulse beat to sixty-four and visualizing the next moments, as the team gets in position for the signal to move to "green. It isn't fear or runaway nerves. And yet with every muscle straining all he can manage to do is to take a few faltering steps and fall down on his gun.
Freddy and the French Fries
At five seconds to impact, Web lays helpless as he watches the Charlie team proceed and one by one fall to the ground, all dead in seconds. Web is the only one alive. For a HRT guy, out-surviving team members is nothing to be grateful about; the other FBI guys are suspicious and worse, distrust him to go out on mission.
He can't bear the silent accusations of the widows and fatherless children who'd just as soon trade him for their lost loved one, and the press is having its usual field day, only this time it is his story they are exaggerating and manipulating. In a single moment Web London goes from hero to pariah. Web needs to understand what happened in that alley who set up his team for an ambush; this job is his life.

There is no room in his job for less than absolute bravery. A good HRT guy does not let their team be killed without them. Web begins a two-pronged investigation, one external to seek whoever set Charlie up and one internal where he signs on with psychiatrist , Claire Daniels.
- Freddy and the French Fries # Fries Alive! by David Baldacci
The key for both investigations seems to be the boy in the alley. After Charlie team was killed, Web still struggled with trying to move; when he saw the boy start to run directly into the line of fire, Web managed to yell at him to stop and slithered himself over to the boy. He gives the boy his hat and a note, warning of the ambush, for the boy to deliver to the reserve unit that TOC is sending in, but somehow, the FBI loses the boy.
Missing is the undercover agent that provided the information on the drug lair. Meanwhile, a judge, a prosecutor, a defense counsel are killed in three separate and apparent unrelated incidents; when Web sees this in the newspaper, he makes the connection between those deaths and Charlie team's ambush. He knows that it is the same group who caused half his face to be torn off during a hostage rescue mission.
David Canfield was the only hostage from that mission. Web had given this boy hope and the boy had died while looking at Web, Web carries guilt from this operation. Web London is not the only one. Francis Westbrook, a giant of a man whose moniker is the apt " Big F ," is the leader of a small drug empire; the building that HRT was taking, is in his territory, but it is not a place that he has used, nor does he run a business on the scale that would warrant that kind of attention.
The missing boy is Westbrook's brother and he will do anything, including giving up his entire business, to get that kid back. Notwithstanding his concern for his brother, he's alert to the fact that he's got a traitor in his top echelon. Last Man Standing is a complex psychological thriller in which the suspicions run rampant as to who set up Charlie team. At the center of this novel is a team of alpha males in which Baldacci reveals the characteristics of the type of guy that would want to do this poor paying job that boasts a motto of "Speed and violence of action.
And though they might have love affairs with their weapons, they are earnest about trying not to use them. That said, and they keep a hell of a lot of weapons on hand. These guys are heroes, although they are part of the FBI, they keep their distance. After all, it is the FBI that makes the judgment call that sends them into action, so when there is a screw up, as there was in Waco , the blame tends to go directly to HRT. Web London as the epitome of the HRT guy is a strong, loyal friend to his team members and their families, he has issues dealing with his own issues.
Yet, in this instance, he is unusually motivated to continue his therapy since he's the one that wants to know what happened; as much as Baldacci paints HRT as real American heroes, by delving into this psychological side of the story he points out the character deficiencies that cause these men to go through the most grueling training and to subject themselves to the greatest danger. It fills out this multi-layered plot. The book was published on January 1, by Warner Books.
