    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.

    Following their collaboration in Split Second, ex-Secret Service agents Sean King and Michelle Maxwell have gone into partnership and are investigating the robbery of some secret documents at the residence of the incredibly wealthy Battle family. Meanwhile, a spate of serial killings begins to terrorise the neighbourhood. The murderer kills in the manner of famous killers of the past but takes care to leave a stopped watch at each crime scene, either on the hour, or one tick off. Why?

    Poor by Baldacci standards

    Could not get enthused by this, poor by his normal standards. His later works are far better to listen to.

    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.

    Camp David, USA. A birthday party turns into a nightmare when a child is snatched after the celebrations. The First Lady enlists the services of Sean King and Michelle Maxwell to bring the child home safely. But she and King share a past. Years ago he saved her then-senator husband from political disaster. And this may not be all that passed between them.

    Return to form for Baldacci?

    Like many others I have listened to True Blue and found it to be too implausible and cliche ridden. Ostensibly written before True Blue, First Family ..Show More »
