SPLIT SECOND, David Baldacci

SPLIT SECOND, David Baldacci


Synopsis
Michelle Maxwell has just wrecked her promising career at the Secret Service. Against her instincts, she let a presidential candidate out of her sight for the briefest moment, and the man whose safety was her responsibility vanished into thin air. Sean King knows how the younger agent feels. Eight years earlier, the hard-charging Secret Service agent allowed his attention to be diverted for a split second. And the candidate he was protecting was gunned down before his eyes. Now Michelle and Sean are about to see their destinies converge.

Drawn into a maze of lies, secrets, and deadly coincidences, the two discredited agents uncover a shocking truth: that the separate acts of violence that shattered their lives were really a long time in the making-and are a long way from over…

Richard says…
Classic Baldacci, well written, engaging and entertaining. The story is about two federal government security agents who have momentary lapses while on duty to the detriment of the politico they are each responsible for guarding. That may seem like a simple story line, but the protagonist duo, Maxwell and King, need to dig deep into the past, investigate in the rural backwood of the American south to discover the true story behind their similar dismissals as security agents of the US federal government.

A good story, written well that will hold the reader’s attention throughout. Worth reading, as is any Baldacci book.
