I think Alex and Christine will be great friends. I liked what I read because it was interesting.

I listened to the audio book. The readers (1 male, 1 female) didn't differentiate too much with the voices so I had a hard time figuring out who was talking. Also, there were gunshots that startled me on more than one occasion when I was driving!! It was okay, but so much killing.

At first the book was slow since I've watched the tv episode. To many differences yet to many similarities. The ending gave me a heartache that I now seriously can't wait for the next! 125 holds ahead of me and it feels like it can't come any sooner.

another fast paced thriller but with some ORIGINAL concepts.
The individual personal story lines keep moving and evolving.

A good read. But man, they travel the country to the point of being rediculous. It's almost distracting. I'm wondering if this is the last Maxwell King story the way it ends. Worth a read if you like these two characters. They entertain me during my ride on the bus.

It was quite OTT, with a predictable ending and cliched moments. When the main characters are just imbued with super characteristics its hard not to roll your eyes after they survive the umpteenth attact unscathed. I had been tempted to start from the first one in the series but now that I've read this I'm glad I didn't wait. Guess this doesn't make me a Baldacci fan.

A Hard-to-put-down book from start to finish. Took me only a couple of hours to finish reading the book!
One of the best works of Baldacci.

I almost stopped reading this book during the first few chapters as the lead protagonists were kind of annoying. But gradually, more interesting ones appeared & the plot took over. It's a cleverly written, fast paced thriller & you just have to know how it plays out & who is actually on which side. You'll pick out one of the "moles" fairly easily but the rest remain up in air til the final battle. My only complaint is a pet peeve...medical details (hospital treatments & procedures, etc.) that are incorrect but only because they're so easy to get right with a little research.

I love these Michelle Maxwell and Sean King stories. It's great to see a couple where the female could kick the guy's butt if she wanted too and he's fine with it. Baldacci had me doubting myself when I thought I had it figured out. I love a book that keeps me guessing
