There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Pretty drawn out story, but generally keeps one’s attention. Quite a few twists and characters to keep up with. The Sean and Michelle interaction remains a work in progress; will they be associates or something more? Both of them have their eye on someone else only to find that their judge of character comes up short.
That said, I still enjoyed Hour Game lot and I highly recommend it.
It's great Baldacci!

This is the second in a series of books from David Baldacci featuring Sean King and Michelle Maxwell. Both are former Secret Service agents who left the agency under a cloud. They have now set themselves up as private investigators based in Wrightsburg in Virginia.
Wrightsburg appears have attracted the attention of a serial killer. In quick succession a number of local resident have been brutally slain. Each killing is staged to mimic the work of previous serial killers across America. There appears to be no connection between each victim.
King and Maxwell are deputised by a poorly manned and under resourced local police office. The FBI are brought in but it appears to only result in different agencies following different and contradictory lines of enquiry and nobody is willing to speak or share information on their progress.
The surface calm that is Wrightsburg is also shown to be a sham. Beneath the surface exists a number of tensions that all have the potential for violence. Most of them seem to link back to a leading local resident but he is currently in a coma in a local hospital.
Slowly but surely both King and Maxwell start to dig below the surface. They gradually uncover a maelstrom of emotions, relationships and in addition identify the possibility that there is a second killer involved who is using the serial killer as a cover to further their own agenda.
