    When something distracts Secret Service agent Sean King for a split second, it costs him his career - and a presidential candidate his life. Eight years later, Michelle Maxwell is on the fast track through the ranks of the Secret Service when her career receives a lethal blow: a presidential candidate is abducted while under her protection. The similarity between the two cases drives Michelle to re-open investigations into the Ritter fiasco and join forces with attractive ex-agent King.

    A woman is found murdered in the woods with a very special watch on her wrist, and what seemed a simple case soon escalates into a nightmare. The criminal methods of some of the most infamous killers of all time are being replicated by a new predator who stalks and strikes victims with a cunning brilliance. No one can understand the murderer's motives or who the next victim will be.

    What's wrong with this book?

    I am ambivalent about this book. It isn't a bad read - none of Baldacci?s books are. The narrator does an adequate job - Baldacci?s readers always del..Show More »

    Former Secret Service agents turned private investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell have seen their lives splinter around them. Michelle lies unconscious in a hospital bed after a night of suicidal violence. And Sean is forced to take on a thankless investigation into the murder of a scientist just inside the CIA's razor-wire fence near Williamsburg, Virginia. But they will need to team up again to stop a conspiracy of traitors operating in the shadow of the White House itself.

    Simple Genius

    Loved it, loved it, loved it. Exciting, interesting, fast paced, excellent narration. Lots of twists and kept you guessing.

    Sean King and Michelle Maxwell both bear the scars of their previous case. Michelle's in a psychiatric hospital after making a suicide attempt while Sean, down on his luck and desperately worried about his friend, accepts a PI job at Babbage Town: a hugely secret establishment where, it seems, corpses turn up more quickly than new codes can be encrypted by the genius mathematicians who are employed in the place.
