David Baldacci brings back Sean King and Michelle Maxwell--former Secret Service agents turned private investigators--in their most surprising, personal, and dangerous case ever . . .
It seems at first like a simple, tragic story. Tyler Wingo, a teenage boy, learns the awful news that his father, a soldier, was killed in action in Afghanistan. Then the extraordinary happens: Tyler receives a communication from his father . . . after his supposed death.
Tyler hires Sean and Michelle to solve the mystery surrounding his father. But their investigation quickly leads to deeper, more troubling questions. Could Tyler's father really still be alive? What was his true mission? Could Tyler be the next target?
Sean and Michelle soon realize that they've stumbled on to something bigger and more treacherous than anyone could have imagined. And as their hunt for the truth leads them relentlessly to the highest levels of power and to uncovering the most clandestine of secrets, Sean and Michelle are determined to help and protect Tyler--though they may pay for it with their lives.

King and Maxwell is an interesting and easy read about government conspiracy, plots, schemes, deceit, discovery, the Middle East complex, etc. Some dialogues are a bit cheesy and some information may not be accurate. However, I enjoy the flow and writing style.

had a hard time getting into this book, later the story line grabbed me and made me a part of the story, as if it was happening with me there, excellent read!

This was one of the best, if not the best in the series. The characters were compelling, and the story line was "edge of your seat ", with the usual Baldacci "twist" at the conclusion.

As always, Baldacci gives his readers a good ride. However I was somewhat disappointed with this one.

Standard Baldacci fare... no more, no less.

This was my first Baldacci book and I was hooked from the first disc. By the time I got to Disc 4, I couldn't believe that I still had 7 discs to go because the book was as thrilling as a roller coaster. Admittedly, there were some parts of the story that I found to be implausible, but I found the overall story engaging and well told. The two actors used for the male and female characters helped make the story come alive. Although there is definitely an attraction between the two detectives, I appreciated the author keeping them out of the bedroom (for the duration of the story) and focused on their mystery.

loads of fun. Not predictable. Has a realistic feel. Good read.
