This story kept me guessing. Loved the plot twists and characters.
The narrator was good, but I kept picturing Andrew Dice Clay reading the story. Every character sounded like an east coast wise guy.
I was pulled into the suspense and found myself rooting for the characters and hoping my favorites were innocent.

While I'm quite a fan of David Baldacci's work, I had never ventured into the King and Maxwell series. This first novel in the series kept me interested with plot enough plot twists to keep things unexpected.
However, having listened to numerous other works by the same author, I was rather disappointed in Scott Brick's performance. Even after listening to the whole book, I found his narration to be jerky and inconsistent - longing for the voice of Ron McLarty.
Don’t get me wrong – I don’t believe the so-so narration will keep me from continuing the series, but if you’re expecting excellent narration, look elsewhere.
The narrator was very good . . . I liked his protrayal of Sean King. I like Scott Brick on anything he narrates.
At the end when King was at his burned out home and he and Maxwell chose to start their own investigation agency.
The final showdown with Morris . . . the guy was as crazy as a loon and yet able to try to outsmart King . . . of course in the end King dealt with him!
No extreme reaction. I got caught up in the story, which is what I hope for in a good story, and really enjoyed the book.
For some reason, this story seemed absolutely too predictable. I could almost see the end halway through the book. Don't even get me started on the female characters in this book. How can you have a veteran SS agent turned high-dollar private security, investigating a disappearance of a high-profile target, linked to a murder, and she just turns her back on a perfect stranger and allows another female to overpower her? The supposed twists and turns were lackidaisical at best and definitely not Baldacci's best work. I was sorely disappointed. And the hero former SS agent just up and forgives a former agent for taking a bribe and having a candidate ultimately be killed. Right.
Absolutely everything. It's almost like he's lost all ideas and everything seemed recycled somehow.
Nice funny witty guy. Work 4 NYS at OMH. Am a MHTA at a psychiatric Hosp. Love to Help people who need to b helped. Work Evening Shift
Need a female voice to go along with Scott's. Like Michells voice in the Sixth Man!
This book yes. The characters were rich and varied. David must have a great relationship with his wife because his females are strong but not witchy. Both ladies were cool and strong in their own way without being offensive.
The way the females are treated: real and with respect.
Nice easy diction. I didn't feel I had to listen carefully.
Two of America's best agents careers ruined in a split second.
The only thing that was annoying was how all the women were attracted to Sean. Yeah, right.
I enjoyed this book as always enjoy David Baldacci and I think Scott brick is one of the best narrators out there.
I liked the story and the interaction between the young and energetic and the well seasoned slightly cynical characters
I am someone who enjoys audible books very much now that they exist. As a young student (real young) I can remember a teacher telling me how books can transport people to different places & open up a whole new world. This is how listening to audible books make me feel. Now if I can just stop falling asleep while listening to them at night I would be fine. Ha ha
I had never heard of the author David Baldacci until a friend of mine sent me one of his books. She just said ALL of his books were great. Having bought a new kindle I began buying audible books of his & I have to agree she is right. All I can say is he better keep writing fast in order to keep up with my reading them.
This book was filled with veiled twists & turns that had me guessing all the way through. The plot of two ex security agents fighting to clear their names & reputations made me want to cheer them on. I even liked how the book ended with a mutual collaboration of working together. Catherine

Got tired of waiting for next Camel Club, book - so thought I'd give this one a try. Standard Baldacci character development, early intrigue and potential plot outcomes. Baldacci gives you enough upfront to say ... dang, I knew it would be them. Not as good as the CC team, but these two characters have potential. I'm starting book number 2 today.
Thanks for hours of delightful entertainment.
It is hard to figure out all the involvements which makes for a great story.
