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.

I live my life by just a few rules: "Be a friend, love deeply, don't believe everything you see, hear or read and always watch your six."
I have to admit I am a Baldaccifile. His easy-going, yet gripping approach to story telling fits my taste perfectly. And this book is no exception. It is brilliantly narrated by the best in the business - Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy. King and Maxwell is escapism with just the right dose of "you know, this could really happen!" Kudos to Mr. Baldacci, his staff, and his publisher for providing me and the rest of his devotees with great entertainment.
i love how they brought back peeps from the last novel, not just Sean and Michelle. The story is waaaaaay far fetched but i am okay with that, its a work of fiction, however it was just a little long winded for me. the other books in the series had me entertained throughout where this one seemed to drag fir me. Hate how at the end we dont know what happened to the people that got them involved in the either. what about the boy?
Love the story but love the intimate relationships blooming before our eyes. interested in seeing how Dana, Michelle and Sean coexist in the future.
i usually can at least listen to the whole book, but I couldn't even make it through the first couple chapters on this one.
Couldn't even get passed the first couple chapters.
Same old thing
David, When you wright a book with completely different characters you need to use a different narrator. John Puller sounds just like Sean King. Not Good
Exceeded my expectations. King & Maxwell are well rounded characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Must have! Can't wait to listen to the next one.
