It has been a couple of years since we had an adventure from these two former secret service agents who still haven’t worked out their personal relationships. Newcomers may find this aspect of the tale slows the plot but stay with it for once we start jumping between the Middle East and America then we move into pure Baldacci territory. An international incident, government and military involvement, a highly improbable scenario, all handled with edge-of-the-seat excitement. He is the most enormous fun to spend time with.

If you like David Baldacci you might also like to read books by Dennis Lehane, G. M. Ford and Tom Cain.

Synopsis

King and Maxwell by David Baldacci

Former secret service agents turned private investigators, Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, return in their most surprising, personal and dangerous case to date. Michelle had chased many things in her life. As a track star and later Olympic rower, she had constantly pitted herself against others in races. As a cop in Tennessee she had run down her share of felons fleeing the scenes of their crimes. As a Secret Service Agent she had been fleet of foot next to limos carrying important leaders. Tonight, though, she was competing against a long-legged teenager with the boundless energy and fresh knees of youth who had a substantial head start and was running like the devil was on his heels ...King and Maxwell encounter teenager Tyler Wingo when he has just received the tragic news that his soldier father has been killed in Afghanistan. But then Tyler receives an email from his father ...after his supposed death. Sean and Michelle are hired to solve the mystery, and their investigation leads to deeper, even more troubling questions. Could Tyler's father really still be alive? Was his mission all that it seemed? Has Tyler's life been a lie, and could he be the next target? It's clear that King and Maxwell have stumbled upon something even more sinister when those in power seem intent on removing them at any cost. Determined to help and protect Tyler, their search for the truth takes them on a perilous journey which not only puts their lives at risk but arrives at a frightening conclusion.
