In this #1 New York Times bestseller, a child is kidnapped at a presidential retreat and two former Secret Service agents must become private investigators in a desperate search that might destroy them both.
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 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.

Well, I'll voice the dissenting opinion. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I thought the plot was original and not filled with holes as so many others in this genre. To be fair, I have not read any of his other novels, but I thought this engaging and I found myself looking for time to listen.
This recording does come with music and some sound effects which at first I found to rather distracting, but after a while I decided I liked the extra mood they added. So, while it might not have been the best novel ever, it was enjoyable and totally worth the ride.
Maybe I'm too easy to please, but I enjoyed very much this book...Found myself indentifying with the characters, particularly Sam...The additional mystery in that the way it was woven into the story just added to the suspense...There was one error overlooked.."The Atlanta Falcons is not a baseball team in which the narrator described Gabriel's cap" BTW I started with "Saving Faith" and was hooked....Read them all.
I must accept Baldacci have better books. I have read most of them. This one have too many predictable parts, and hard to believe on others. On the other side, it was entertaining. Not his best, but better than other I've read.
