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.

    "Sound Effects, nice touch!"

    Was that really a truck I hear? I had to go back and listen again. I don't remember listening to any books with sound effects. It did add to the performance.

    "Entertaining as usual"

    The storytelling was delightful. David Baldacci did a wonderful job in writing King and Maxwell, with interesting plot, good character development and captivating turns in the events. The narration was high quality, just as I would expect from Ron and Orleigh.

    Story
    "Pretty weak effort for a much better writer"
    What disappointed you about King and Maxwell?

    Baldacci, and his editor, gave a pretty half-baked effort on this - the story was basically a good plot line, but it was very loose, not well written or thought out, and it read like he wrote it quickly to get it out there, and the editor didn't give much thought - not only were a lot of the plot details pretty weak, but there were even grammatical errors and sloppy contextual mistakes that were pretty stupid.


    What was most disappointing about David Baldacci’s story?

    He really weakened a strong basic plot line.


    Any additional comments?

    He has done, and can do, much better.

    "Really good listening"
    Where does King and Maxwell rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    it is one of the best, I liked the series so much that I shared it with my wife and she is listening to the series


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    yes, it did, you thought you had it figured out and then the author threw in a new twist


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I think the very last where King comforts his ex and then shares with Michelle


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    ?


    Any additional comments?

    also did not listen, because of bad review about the readers, but that would have been a mistake. I can not wait to the next book

    "Average All Around"

    I've enjoyed Baldacci's work in the past, and wanted to like this one.

    I felt that much of the dialogue (especially between the two leads) was sappy...pure drivel. Not worthy of my time. And while I have enjoyed some of McLarty's work in the past...I didn't enjoy this one. Especially his terrible character voice for the teenage kid and the computer sleuth. Cassidy was OK, but not impressive. Just felt like another day's work for the voices.

    I nearly bailed on this a few chapters in...but ended up sticking with it. It picked up somewhat around Chapter 70. But there were just too many dead spots for me to recommend it. Pretty disappointing. A very average experience.
