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)

    Story
    "Slow moving for most of the book; great at end"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, because it was so slow moving & because I don't like stories about Iran/Afghanistan. Wish U.S. had stayed out. And while my heart went out to Wingo for being framed, I was angry at him for leaving the military a year shy of his 20 to set up a cover and for accepting this obviously danger-fraught (not to say boneheaded) assignment (not to mention the upheaval to his son's life due to the cover of a fake wife!). As a single parent, he should have known and OWED his son A LOT better.


    If you’ve listened to books by David Baldacci before, how does this one compare?

    I liked some of the others better.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When POTUS told Michelle (who'd never advanced to guarding the President): "You can be on my protection detail anytime..." I got a lump in my throat. Very exciting scenes where Michelle saving POTUS.All the scenes with Dana were great; she is a rockstar. (I see her as Delta Burke, circa Designing Women.) I also liked the surprise of who was the last conspirator. I'm usually not surprised when reading mystery/thrillers and love when I don't see something coming.


    Did King and Maxwell inspire you to do anything?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Admire Wingo's ability to move through enemy territory (everyone is an enemy!) & make it home(!) Alan Grant's villainy was oddly motivated. Orphaned as a child because his father was the only one branded with blame for a political fiasco, he sets up a situation where an innocent man, who happens to be a single parent of a young son, will likely die and at the very least take the blame for a political fiasco. Was he expecting Tyler Wingo to grow up & do the same thing he did in 20 or so years? Also, while in the U.S. the sins of the father are not usually blamed on the son, they aren't forgotten either. Don't know how he got his high level in the military-industrial complex. And, knowing his history, I doubt his father-in-law would have ever wanted his daughter dating Alan, much less marrying him. I love Edgar - loved him in the TV show & love him in the series. Jon Tenney (did I get his name right?) was great as King in the TV show but I always picture Deborah Messing as Michelle Maxwell when reading these books. Also agree with Michelle that King's buddying with Dana for rehab will likely lead to false hopes. Liked that he succeeded in getting money for Dana (but didn't her husband have a trust fund? Weren't they already rich???) but think the Wingo family deserves some of that.

    "Tied for my Fav!"

    This wasn't just narrated it was a theatrical event. I enjoyed every minute of the book and having teo narrators made it so engaging. Couldn't put the book down. Or the audio down. Casting of the two narrators was perfect. I am going to have separation anxiety he not having King and Maxwell around.

    Story
    "It hooked both my husband and me!"
    If you could sum up King and Maxwell in three words, what would they be?

    A provocative team.


    What other book might you compare King and Maxwell to and why?

    Better detective book than any we've read/heard over the past 15 years.


    What does Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    We thoroughly enjoy hearing 2 voices read the story. In other books we've heard, don't enjoy when men talk in a falsetto voice for female characters nor women talking in a pseudo-bass voice for male characters. This listen is as good as old radio shows where each character was a different person speaking. When we've heard other books with multiple readers it was difficult to recall whether it was a movie or a book we listened to - it expands the imagination. Love it!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Too long for that, but it was difficult to turn it off.


    Any additional comments?

    Best fiction we've heard in a long time.

    "Favorite So Far"

    This was my favorite book in the series. The story was great and the sound effects enhanced narration brought it all to life. The plot was intertwined with national actors, including POTUS...he was a good guy. The characters were pretty well fleshed out and the reader knows all of them pretty well by the end of the book. What seems well researched, may well be made up, but I couldn't tell that from personal experience. Baldacci seems to increase the tension with writing style, sometimes frustrating if the listen is interrupted. My last book in the series, adios K&M.

    "GREAT"

    Loved the twist in the story. Would love to have more of Edgar's character involvement from the beginning. It would be interesting to have King & Maxwell cross paths with Will Robbie & Jessica.
