Publisher's Summary

David Baldacci brings back Sean King and Michelle Maxwell - former Secret Service agents turned private investigators, featured in the hit TNT TV series King & Maxwell - 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.

(Book 6 of the series)

    "Trite and Ridicules"

    DB clearly has never been in the military or worked for the US Government. a lot of the dialogue is absolutely ridiculous.

    "King and Maxwell"

    The intrigue and mystery never ends right up to the end of the story. With an outstanding story line, the characters really come to life. This book is one of Baldacci' best.

    "Good effort"
    What made the experience of listening to King and Maxwell the most enjoyable?

    I think what made me like the book from the beginning was easily because of the other series books and the TV series making the characters be in focus.

    I love audio and ebooks but only give them a 5 if they hold my attention. An avereage story gets a 3 . Thrillers & Crime are my favorites.

    "Another Solid Baldacci book"

    The story of King and Maxwell continues with its usual mix of humor and international intrigue. It picks up a few months after the last novel where Michele had been seriously injured. She is mostly back to her usual self as they are driving along one night and nearly hit a young man who is running in the dark with a gun.

    They, of course, chase after him and get drawn into his struggle to find out what happened to his soldier father who was reported dead. The story focuses on all the twists and turns as they seek to learn the truth and wind up nearly getting killed a few times along the way.

    I did find this one to be a bit more convoluted than usual. It was still interesting and we got to learn that Sean has an ex-wife and a bit more about his past.

    I enjoyed it and there is a good twist in the end.

    "Baldacci is always worth waiting for"
    Any additional comments?

    King and Maxwell is an engaging mystery. No moments of boredom - the case just kept getting larger and more involved. It was easy to question the wisdom of several of the characters, but believable. Maxwell irritates somewhat - but I have a hard time with severely messy people. Good Read, just what I always get from Baldacci

    "Well worth a listen"

    Baldacci had a string of below par efforts but he seems to have come back with King and Maxwell. They are good characters and, while not a good as the Camel Club crew, not many are. Baldacci has improved the dialog at least for King. It is hard to tell if the Maxwell dialog is as bad as it seems or whether Cassidy is making weak dialog look worse than it is. The sound effects are irritating but there aren't that many of them. The premise is far out but you have to expect that in the thriller genre. Baldacci has proved again that he can tell a story and keep the reader's interest up to the final page. This book is worth your time.

    "Great Writing, Specious Motive"

    *** SPOILER ALERT! ***

    Iran/Contra being the motive for plotting to assassinate a current day sitting president because Reagan wasn't convicted, Really?! If that weren't bad enough, the writer even had to use it as causative the reason why some imaginary couple committed suicide which drove the perp looney tunes. I mean, it's not like he couldn't have pick liberal LBJ who caused the real deaths of over 50,000 troops by use of an intentional lie.

    Anyway, 2 stars off for the leftist tilt but 1 star added back for the entertaining sound effects.

    "Improved Narration"
    What did you love best about King and Maxwell?

    It seems like the narrators took earlier feedback to heart. I gave a rotten review on the last book. Ron narrates fine, I love his voice and can listen to him forever. I did not like Orlagh's over acting in her narration and used a southern accent that was very annoying. The over acting female roles vs the easy narration of the male roles clashed and were annoying.

    With this book, Orlagh toned down the broadway and got rid of the accent and Ron stepped up with more charactor in his narration.

    I liked previous books with Scott Brick, but honestly my favorite was the one Ron McLarty did by himself. But the last book with the duo of Ron and Orlagh was very good.

    "As always, a solid and entertaining tale"

    Baldacci formula is always entertaining and "feels" plausible. This installment of the K&M series is no different.
