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.

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.
A provocative team.
Better detective book than any we've read/heard over the past 15 years.
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!
Too long for that, but it was difficult to turn it off.
Best fiction we've heard in a long time.

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.
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.
the series is great. the writing is great, but I wish the narrators could act and do better voices of the different characters.
It was a very good story but sometimes I felt like I was listening to a Scooby Do episode. I very much like the relationship and character qualities and flaws on Maxeell and King. I found it slow.
