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)
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.
I really enjoyed the short-lived King & Maxwell tv series and decided to give the books a try. I was not disappointed. The story, or parallel stories, of Secret Service security details gone wrong were intriguing and the characters were interesting and likeable (the good ones anyway!). I've already purchased the next two books in the series.
I've listed to a number of books narrated by Scott Brick. He does an terrific job of voicing characters with one tiny little oddity that I don't understand. It is fairly common to hear what a dear departed Jewish friend of mine used to refer to as the 'Jewish mother voice' upturn to questions. It certainly isn't anything that would deter me from listening to book narrated by him, I am always happy to find him narrating a book I am interested in, but I find it curious.
Did NOT disappoint!!!
Funny, mysterious, thrilling well narrated book. Interesting, original story line with great twists if you don't pay attention.
But, I am a Baldacci fan. I would argue not biased in the least, lol.
