Publisher Description

Split Second is the first in the gripping King and Maxwell series by bestselling author David Baldacci.

When something distracts Secret Agent Sean King for a split second, it costs him his career and presidential candidate, Clyde Ritter, his life. But what stole his attention? And why was Ritter shot?

Eight years later Michelle Maxwell is on the fast track through the ranks of the Secret Service when her career is stopped short: presidential candidate John Bruno is abducted from a funeral home 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. The pair are determined to get to the bottom of what happened in those critical moments.

Meanwhile, high-ranking members of the legal system and key witnesses from both cases are going missing. King is losing friends, colleagues and clients fast and his ex-lover, Joan Dillinger, is playing curious games – she wants Sean back, but she also owes him for something . . .

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

Gripping from first to last page. Good characters and unique plot

Excellent

Well….

I’ve grown quite fond of Baldacci over the last year or so. I’ve read so many of his books and I’m normally quite happy with them. He’s got a nice way about his characters and even his patriotism (or that of his characters) is bearable. This story tho….it didn’t make sense, maybe I missed a page or two but the whole story didn’t make sense and the “finale” was awful. I don’t know if this is one of his earlier works maybe or just something he threw in to fill the contract but this was confusing as hell. Longwinded with so many u-turns, turnings and wrong directions! So much potential to be just this?? A scorned lover? I’m ever so disappointed. Let’s hope the next one is better again!
Just to clarify, I don’t like leaving bad reviews but I just finished the book and I needed to vent!! Love, Cinders x

An excellent read

Exciting and intriguing from the beginning. Many twists and turns but remains believable. Reads like a film.
