Before King can stop the recovering Maxwell from fleeing the car, she dashs out in search of the teenager ignoring the pain in her body that tells her to stop running. Although the bad guys plan is something I'd never have guessed, his reasons revenge were vague to me. And there might even be folks shooting at him. I have read a few books from Baldacci in the past but this might be the best book of his I have read so far. The black truck was obviously booby-trapped. She's been in recovery from a knife in the back wound and is still not 100%, although she pretends to be for King's sake. Baldacci has been a favorite of mine since I read Last Man Standing over a decade ago, and he did not disappointed with King and Maxwell.
Look elsewhere if you want to be bored to death! Also the motivation of the lead antagonist seems a bit weak. The men parted to allow him passage. Inspiration always hits at just the right time a man crossing the street! Yup, Baldacci had fun writing this one and if you like this sort of thing, you will have fun reading it. He expected shots to be fired at him. He observed a rotted human body, its carcass being reduced to bone by vultures.
Brilliant plotting, heart-grabbing action and characters to die for. And death here was nearly always brutal and almost never immediate. This novel meets all of this criteria.

I am eager to see what else you have up your sleeve in the coming months. It can be fun, but I would wait for a sequel which isn't designed to jump start the Nielsens.
Could Tyler's father really still be alive? Despite all of that, I still found myself enjoying much of this book. I credit Baldacci's base writing skills with that phenomenon.

You can read an extended review on my blog: It's been a while since I've read the others, but there's a little more banter here than I remember, and I have to wonder if it's because the series has been adapted for television. Two former Secret Service agents Sean King and Michelle Maxwell get involved when trying to rescue a visibly upset teenager running in the rainy and darkWashington streets with a German pistol. But as they uncover one horrifying revelation after another, it brings them closer to the most shocking surprise of all. A little spoiler as well, Edgar Roy, who appears in The Sixth Man, those of you who haven't yet read it, returns in this entry, and he assists King and Maxwell with their case, which I thought was cool, I'm glad Baldacci brought him back. This time they see a young man running through a storm with a gun in his hand. And he was running out of time.
