Sadly I liked the TV series better than the books. Failed Secret Service agents make a good story line if they were ever to stop nagging each other, and his nerd savant has great potential. He does tend to dawdle along and suddenly have to wrap up the story in a somewhat unlikely fashion. Writers prerogative but it does disappoint.

David Baldacci tells a compelling and gripping story but unfortunately he lacks technical knowledge which is very often demonstrated in his story endings where he attempts to wrap everything up with some Deus Ex Machina like devices. It gives the feeling that the author likes to craft stories so much that the publishing house yanks it out of his hands then appoints a junior to wind up the plot. **Spoiler Alert** Blowing the oxygen bottle with a shotgun in a enclosed area which supposedly results in blowing off the trunk lid is nonsense that any arithmetic junior would catch. He should raise his game because this happens time after time. Perhaps it is a price to pay when reading or listening to Baldacci.

King and Maxwell is an interesting and easy read about government conspiracy, plots, schemes, deceit, discovery, the Middle East complex, etc. Some dialogues are a bit cheesy and some information may not be accurate. However, I enjoy the flow and writing style.

Barely up to par.

had a hard time getting into this book, later the story line grabbed me and made me a part of the story, as if it was happening with me there, excellent read!

This was one of the best, if not the best in the series. The characters were compelling, and the story line was "edge of your seat ", with the usual Baldacci "twist" at the conclusion.

As always, Baldacci gives his readers a good ride. However I was somewhat disappointed with this one.

Standard Baldacci fare... no more, no less.

This was my first Baldacci book and I was hooked from the first disc. By the time I got to Disc 4, I couldn't believe that I still had 7 discs to go because the book was as thrilling as a roller coaster. Admittedly, there were some parts of the story that I found to be implausible, but I found the overall story engaging and well told. The two actors used for the male and female characters helped make the story come alive. Although there is definitely an attraction between the two detectives, I appreciated the author keeping them out of the bedroom (for the duration of the story) and focused on their mystery.

loads of fun. Not predictable. Has a realistic feel. Good read.
