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
    "I could not wait for this book to be over."
    What would have made King and Maxwell better?

    The voice dramatization was awful and cheesy.


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Baldacci again?

    Perhaps.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It interrupted the rhythm.


    Any additional comments?

    I could not wait for this to be over and finally I quit, although there were only few chapters left. It was that bad.

    Story
    "David Baldacci - King and Maxwell, always good"

    I'm always drawn into these stories, regardless of how long it's been since I read the last one, The characters are like old friends, the story always keeps me reading or listening.

    I like this narrator - or these, as is the case for Baldacci these days and in this book. They did a great job. I wasn't fond of the multiple voices and sound effects when Baldacci first did it and still don't know that it would work for other authors or books, but it worked in this book, or at least for me. I've heard others narrators adding a sigh or sniffle to an audio book, as though the listener could not imagine that themselves. That's insulting and slows the narrative, but the sound effects were not too much here and it worked with an action story.

    Great book overall if you are a Baldacci fan, and if you have ever read one of his books I don't know how you can not be.

    Story
    "Narration Phoned In"

    Is seems very obvious that the actors who performed this were not in the studio at the same time. The flow of the narration is painful. I don't know why they used multiple readers when so many of their readers can do multiple voices. Talk about a phoned in performance!

    "Entertaining light Mistry"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Excellent story for those evenings when you just want a book that is not very challenging or realistic. Yes I would recommend it.
