Publisher's Summary

Edgar Roy - an alleged serial killer held in a secure, fortress-like Federal Supermax facility-is awaiting trial. He faces almost certain conviction. Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called in by Roy's attorney, Sean's old friend and mentor Ted Bergin, to help work the case. But their investigation is derailed before it begins-en route to their first meeting with Bergin, Sean and Michelle find him murdered.

It is now up to them to ask the questions no one seems to want answered: Is Roy a killer? Who murdered Bergin? With help from some surprising allies, they continue to pursue the case. But the more they dig into Roy's past, the more they encounter obstacles, half-truths, dead-ends, false friends, and escalating threats from every direction. Their persistence puts them on a collision course with the highest levels of the government and the darkest corners of power. In a terrifying confrontation that will push Sean and Michelle to their limits, the duo may be permanently parted.

    "Get Rid of the Female Narrator"

    Love everything Baldacci, and especially King and Maxwell. But, what was a good story line was made bad by the Maxwell narrator, she was annoying and made this book a difficult listen.

    "Good story, terrible female narration/character"

    I'm not sure what was worse, the dialog of Michelle or the narration, both made her character snarky and sarcastic. Her one-liners seemed completely unrealistic and on top of that, bad narration.....very difficult to listen to. Probably better to read this one since the story was pretty good.

    "Narration"

    The femal narfation is absolutly poor. Do not waste your dollars if you are into the quality. I am surprised the editors had to reach so deep in the heap for a female. Sounds like she was reading a script, which she was, but poorly.

    "Not believable enough."

    OK read, but the likelihood of many of the events was so far fetched that it tested my patience.

    "Really good read"

    I just finished listening to this, and really enjoyed it very much. There were some surprises in the characters that I didn't see coming, and that is a big plus for me!

    "SO AWFUL"

    This book was so bad it became funny. Narration is not good. But since the writing is shallow, predictable, preachy, trite and has boing characters, I am not sure possible to narrate this book into a pleasant experience. The main characters are so unlikeable that you just do not care. Sorry I wasted my money. This book should appeal to morons.

    "Incredibly stupid"

    If you enjoy totally unbelievable plots and unrealistic over-the top murder and mayhem, then this book is for you. Very disappointed.
