Description

David Baldacci brings back Sean King and Michelle Maxwell--former Secret Service agents turned private investigators--in their most surprising, personal, and dangerous case ever . . . KING AND MAXWELL It seems at first like a simple, tragic story. Tyler Wingo, a teenage boy, learns the awful news that his father, a soldier, was killed in action in Afghanistan. Then the extraordinary happens: Tyler receives a communication from his father . . . after his supposed death. Tyler hires Sean and Michelle to solve the mystery surrounding his father. But their investigation quickly leads to deeper, more troubling questions. Could Tyler's father really still be alive? What was his true mission? Could Tyler be the next target? Sean and Michelle soon realize that they've stumbled on to something bigger and more treacherous than anyone could have imagined. And as their hunt for the truth leads them relentlessly to the highest levels of power and to uncovering the most clandestine of secrets, Sean and Michelle are determined to help and protect Tyler--though they may pay for it with their lives.

    While King and Maxwell has an imaginative story line and slightly rounded characters--about standard for the genre--the run of cliches knocked the writing level down from professional to freshman. While the author had a few over-reaches in the plot, the tale moved well. But a good editor could have worked wonders with a blue pen, or even a red one. A good writer has made money by putting his name on someone else's novel: a tatty sweater woven with inferior yarn, and I feel cheated.

    I was saddened when Vince Flynn passed. I truly enjoyed his body of work! King & Maxwell however was my favorite read to date. I literally could not put it down. Looking forward to my next David Baldacci read..

    It's a good read but rather lame plot and predictable ending. Needed raunchy sex scenes to make it perfectly ridiculous.

    He's slipping. Churning out books instead of creating stories of art and substance. The big problem here is the constant coincidences that solve problems. The whole book keeps having a lucky break a chapter to solve a mystery. Totally predictable. Not crafty like so many of his other books. Disappointing to his fans. Wanted to love it. Just can't.

    The best PI pair imaginable. True to form, David Baldacci has written another novel with unforeseen twists that cannot be duplicated. Thanks DB.
