    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.

    Where does King and Maxwell rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best books of the K and M series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No favorite character...they were all well-acted.


    What about Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s performance did you like?

    Their voices and tempo matched very well, unlike previous K and M audiobooks. Each character was voiced with enough nuance to be distinguishable and believable. The dialog flowed without noticeable bumps. VERY well acted.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cringed every time I heard one of the sound effects in the background. They were fake-sounding, cheesy, and totally unnecessary. One of the beauties of listening to an audiobook is creating the scenes and accompanying sounds in your mind. If you add sounds, you might as well add visuals like explosions and bullet tracers.


    Any additional comments?

    Other than the cheesy sound effects, this was a very enjoyable book.
