King and Maxwell

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.

    "Lousy Ending"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Loved the story and the plot until the end. Was contrived and corny. Would have given it 4 overall but for the ending.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of King and Maxwell?

    Discovering that the general was one of the conspirators.


    Have you listened to any of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Love them. As good as always.

    By watching the TV series, I have a picture in my mind of the characters in the King and Maxwell books. This increases my enjoyment of the books. I find that this series is entertaining and that is why I listen to my books. I look forward to the next book in this series. Worth the time and credit to me...

    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.

    Story
    "Another good King & Maxwell"

    I particularly enjoyed this after the TV series and I could "see" them in my mind from the series (Why did it get cancelled????)

    Not crazy about the female narrator, but overall they did a good job.

    The story is far fetched, but it's fiction and to be expected in a "thriller".

    The main reason I gave it a 4 though was because I hate the sound effects. Just read the dang book, it's not a movie.

    "A terrific political thriller"
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Baldacci's characters have realistic relationships that make the plot feasible and believable. I always want to move on in the story to find out what happens to them next.


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

    Their performance intensifies the action and the interplay between characters. The experience is like listening to a play.


    Any additional comments?

    Baldacci is one of my favorite authors and King And Maxwell is one of the reasons why.

    Story
    "Disenchanted with this installment."

    The narrator's performance was fine. Maybe a little over the top drama-wise, but I found it to be in keeping with the other Baldacci books to which I've listened.

    At this point, I feel like I'm in a somewhat stale relationship with Mr. Baldacci and his work. Initially, I really enjoyed the King and Maxwell books. Now I'm wondering if Mr. Baldacci has changed, or if it is just me. I don't remember ever losing patience with a book like this before. In the last 90 minutes or so, I kept checking the time to see how much more I needed to endure. I found the plot to be too farfetched; there was just too much disbelief to be suspended. So I don't know if my expectations have changed, or if this installment in the series is worse than the others.

    In summary, if you are invested in the lives of Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, you are going to want to give this a listen, just to satisfy your curiosity about the development and evolution of their relationship. Otherwise, I would look elsewhere.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have had a narrator who could play different roles with more distinct voices.


    Any additional comments?

    I still enjoyed the story and the characters but at the bottom of my list for Baldacci novels.

    "Entertaining ..... But"

    The narration seem rushed and the interaction between the main characters feels extremely superficial. I have listened to the entire King Maxwell series and although this story has a lot of twists and turns, it just misses being really good. I love David Baldacci's writing and this series, however this is just an OK listen.
