Publisher's Summary

David Baldacci's heart-stopping Hour Game is the second fast-paced thriller in the King and Maxwell series.

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. It seems like a straightforward case of domestic burglary, but soon they begin to suspect links to larger, more terrifying events now shaking the prosperous town of Wrightsburg....

The unidentified corpse of an attractive young woman turns up in the woods; two high school kids, one shot in the back, the other in the face, are found dead in their car; a successful lawyer is discovered stabbed to death in her own home. A serial killer is on the loose. The murderer kills in the manner of famous killers of the past but takes care to leave a stopped watch at the scene of each crime - corresponding to the victim's position on his hit list.

As the killing spree escalates, it seems that the fractured Battle family are somehow involved, and Maxwell and King suddenly find themselves racing to solve an intricate puzzle, one that is full of tantalizing clues but barren of solid evidence and one that is leaving even the FBI confounded. And all the while, the body count is rising....

Hour Game is followed by Simple Genius, First Family, The Sixth Man and King and Maxwell.

    Story
    "Story good narration grates"

    The story is as riveting as the first two books but the narrator is beginning to grate. Napoleon may well have been a grumpy individual but the "Frenchified" voice used becomes increasingly hard to listen to. This is always a danger. When I read a book I don't put on accents. I began to long to get back to hearing about Arthur.

    Live in Basingstoke but commute a couple of hours each day to Central London, so the audible books are perfect for the journey.

    "Not Impressed with this title at all"
    What would have made Hour Game better?

    The story is all over the place and narrator of the book is no good at all


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Baldacci again?

    Love David Baldacxi and enjoyed Split Second but this follow up is not up to his usual standard. I am going to return this book


    How could the performance have been better?

    The Narrator voice is boring and has no substance
