Publisher Comments:

David Baldacci brings back Sean King and Michelle Maxwell — former Secret Service agents turned private investigators — in their most surprising, personal, and dangerous case ever...


It seems at first like a simple, tragic story. Tyler Wingo, a teenage boy, learns the awful news that his father, a soldier, was killed in action in Afghanistan. Then the extraordinary happens: Tyler receives a communication from his father... after his supposed death.

Tyler hires Sean and Michelle to solve the mystery surrounding his father. But their investigation quickly leads to deeper, more troubling questions. Could Tyler's father really still be alive? What was his true mission? Could Tyler be the next target?

Sean and Michelle soon realize that they've stumbled on to something bigger and more treacherous than anyone could have imagined. And as their hunt for the truth leads them relentlessly to the highest levels of power and to uncovering the most clandestine of secrets, Sean and Michelle are determined to help and protect Tyler — though they may pay for it with their lives.

A rousing mystery from start to finish!
King and Maxwell are at it again, with an intriguing story that quite literally crosses their path one stormy night. Running up against conspiracy buried under conspiracy, the two agents face stonewalls at every turn as they attempt to answer the one question posed by their unexpected teenage client: "Is my dad dead like the military says he is, or not?"

I have loved King and Maxwell as a highly inventive series and as unique characters from start to finish. Baldacci gives them life and lets them balance each other and play off each other through all six books, and it is wonderfully satisfying. Having simultaneously experienced at least two other "thriller" authors who feature female main characters, Michelle is a refreshing mix of equal parts tough and sensitive; Baldacci carries more insight into a tomboyish only-girl-in-a-cop-family than Patterson and his gaggle of "lady crimestoppers." You'll find yourself as much attracted to her wit and logic as you might be repulsed by the legendary landfill-of-a-truck she drives. If you like mystery, intrigue, writing that feels well-researched and plenty of characters presented with such depth one can almost picture them as unique individuals instead of celebrity portrayals, King and Maxwell is for you!
