Publisher's Summary

A woman is found murdered in the woods with a very special watch on her wrist, and what seemed a simple case soon escalates into a nightmare. The criminal methods of some of the most infamous killers of all time are being replicated by a new predator who stalks and strikes victims with a cunning brilliance. No one can understand the murderer's motives or who the next victim will be.

Drawn into this violent affair are two Secret Service agents turned private investigators, Sean King and Michelle Maxwell. Both have been hired to prove a man's innocence in a domestic burglary involving an aristocratic, if dysfunctional, family. Soon, stunning secrets will lead the partners into the middle of a frantic search for a killer unlike any they've confronted before.

As the Hour Game barrels forward, Sean and Michelle face a macabre puzzle and uncover one horrifying revelation after another. Nearing the truth, they will find that their own lives are in danger. And then they're hit with the biggest surprise of all. When you play the Hour Game, you have to play to win. But time is running out...for all of them.

In Hour Game, best-selling master storyteller David Baldacci has created his most mind-blowing and satisfying thriller yet.

    "Another Home Run for Baldacci"

    I cannot get enough of this author. I look forward to more intrigue with the famous twists and turns that only Baldacci can tie together supremely at the end of his novels.

    "Very good, not great"

    The murders are truly horrifying. The action is terrific. Love Scott Brick, the narrator. But a few too many characters and complicated relationships. It is the energy between Sean and Michelle that keeps it all going, and the romantic tension introduced through other love interests is an interesting twist. I'd give it a B plus overall.

    "OK BUT NOT GREAT"

    More people died in this tiny town in VA than I could keep up with. The names, characters were extenstive and I often found myself asking ok this person was who? and was married to whom? and owed who money? etc. Also, I ALWAYS wonder like everyone else why Maxwell and King never get together. Great reading, accents, voices etc. Some leaps of faith, example the M.E. has time to spy on a person all day while in full medical practice. There are several of these.

    "Hour Game"

    Just OK. He has written better. For those that follow a series, I guess it is important to keep up.

    "Bloody for Baldacci"

    I think that Baldacci does well with both action and character development. This book is stronger on the action than the character development. It is also a little bloodier that most of Baldacci's recent work. I have never been disappointed with Baldacci.

    "Nail Biting!"

    Twists and turns, sexual tension, edge-of-your-seat psycho-(literally)drama! This book comes complete with theft, murder, serial killer, and good ol' southern hospitality; the backwoods, high-style kind. Baldacci really shines with Hour Game. Many possible suspects give your brain a good whirl, and just when you think it's all over, it starts again! Baldacci is the Beethoven of crime!

    "Another incredible Baldacci novel"

    This is my third Dave Baldacci novel and he didn't disappoint me in this one either. In his suspenseful style he takes you on a roller coaster ride with one hair pin twist after another. Michelle and Sean were after a mad killer who always seemed one step ahead of them, but in the end they get their man. Highly recommeded if you like suspense novels.

    "A Must Read"

    As usual Baldacci along with the narration by Scott Brick combine for the perfect team. The twists and turns seemed never ending. Just when you think you can figure it out you turn another corner!
    This novel will really hold your interest and keep you coming back for more!

    "Twists and Turns"

    Wow. This novel has more switchbacks that an Appalachian highway. You won't get ahead of Baldicci in figuring out this one! A good and entertaining listen from a reliable author.
