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.

    "Wow, great book"

    While it's not necessary, I think it's definitely a plus to listen to Split Second first. It was a really good listen, but I couldn't put Hour Game down. Listened to the whole thing in 2 days. Scott Brick is my favorite narrator, the book was a great story, and it had enough plot twists to keep me guessing til the end. Highly recommend.

    "Great as all Baldacci books are"

    I am already fan of Baldacci. This was my first experience with audio books. Had a bit of trouble keeping my mind focused on the book at first. But as I listened it did get easier. Just have to learn to keep my focus on what is happening as I listen to the reader dialogue.

    "New to Audible"

    Started listening to audible books by accident and got hooked on King & Maxwell! Just loved it from start to finish, good movement, characters are excellent and well developed. Your interest is held through out reading. The narrator is superb!

    "First exposure and now committed fan."

    This was my first exposure to Mr. Baldacci. I had seen the reviews and needed something to get me through a long drive from the Ohio border to Michigan's Upper Peninsula. I drive the speed limit and still wanted to continue the book after arrival at my destination. I have since purchased all of his remaining audible books for like sojourns. If you like thrillers with a little quirkiness this is a can't miss.

    "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.
