Description

Following the instant #1 New York Times bestsellers Split Second, Hour Game, and Simple Genius, Sean King and Michelle Maxwell return in David Baldacci's most heart-pounding thriller to date . . .

FIRST FAMILY
A daring kidnapping turns a children's birthday party at Camp David, the presidential retreat, into a national security nightmare.
Former Secret Service agents turned private investigators, Sean King and Michelle Maxwell don't want to get involved. But years ago Sean King saved the First Lady's husband, then a senator, from political disaster. Now the president's wife presses Sean and Michelle into a desperate search to rescue a kidnapped child. With Michelle still battling her own demons, the two are pushed to the limit, with forces aligned on all sides against them--and the line between friend and foe impossible to define . . . or defend.

    A great suspense novel. Lot's of development opportunities for Sean & Michelle. With all of the characters, would be helpful to identify who they are on 1-2 pages as reference points!! Great Read!

    Love Sean and Michelle!!! They are in more than this book.. This book was awesome!!! David Baldacchi is an incredible spy thriller writer.. The best I have ever read.. Lots of research done and not a lot of fill in with over-descriptions, like so many other writers.... You can't put it down!!! It grabs you right from the start...

    I think this is one of your better books, mainly because the Florida Primary has been going on while I was reading it. It is really scary to me to think about Romney buying his nomination and maybe presidency. I am mighty uncomfortable even looking at his smugness after the ordeal he has put us all through. Your book is so mesmerizing, and fantastic. I am recommending to my reader friends. I have a stack of your books awaiting me. I have enjoyed all I have read and can hardly wait to open "The Whole Truth". God bless and thank you. Ruth Provine Isenogle

    Definitely a winner. A can't put down book. Keeps you wondering the next move. Dave Baldacci is terrific and I am looking forward to reading his next book and seeing if this was fluke or he is a great writer. I will probably go with "A Great Writer" Jon - Chestnut Ridge

    I have always liked the Baldacci books... This one, however, seemed to miss the mark. While it is an interesting story line, you can figure out large parts of the plot within the first 50-100 pages.
