Living a new life on a quiet lake in central Virginia, Sean King knows how the younger agent feels. He's been there before. In an out-of-the-way hotel eight years earlier, the hard-charging Secret Service man allowed his attention to be diverted for a split second. And the presidential candidate Sean was protecting was gunned down before his eyes.
Now Michelle and Sean are about to see their destinies converge. She has become obsessed with Sean's case. And he needs a friend-especially since a series of macabre killings has brought him under suspicion and prompted the reappearance of a seductive woman he's tried hard to forget.
As the two discredited agents enter a maze of lies, secrets, and deadly coincidences, they uncover a shocking truth: that the separate acts of violence that shattered their lives were really a long time in the making-and are a long way from over...

"Baldacci's new thriller is sustained by the pulse-pounding suspense his fans have come to expect." (Booklist)
I liked the pairing of King and Maxwell; however, at some point in the book they did have to fall out of character to move the plot forward. Overall a good listen.
I love it when fiction goes a little overboard!! This was a GREAT listen and I hope the remaining books in the series are as imaginative.
Theological research and studies for pastors, Sunday School teachers and those interested in the Bible.
King and Maxwell go through some very good adventures and come up with some innovative ways to solve a mystery.
As an entreprenuer, it is hard for me to shut off my brain! It is also hard for me to sit still! I love audibles! I can exercise, work on "chores" , travel and be entertained! Always looking for a good story!
Interesting! Definitely fiction but again it was entertaining to listen to while traveling! It wasn't most plausible plot, but I still enjoyed the characters.
Fast moving story with lots of interesting twists and turns. Very engaging plot line that keeps surprising you with characters turning out not being what you thought they were.
Really enjoyed the story, but the narration was monotone, all the characters sounded the same, and I had a hard time figuring out who said what.
Split second was an amazing read. It captured my attention throughout the entire book. I could not so listening and I hated for it to end. I can't wait to start the next book in the series.
