Two ex-Secret Service agents must face a dark world of violence, codes, and spies at a secret CIA training camp in this #1 New York Times bestseller about a mystery that could destroy the nation.

Near Washington, D.C., there are two clandestine institutions: the world's most unusual laboratory and a secret CIA training camp. Drawn to these sites by a murder, ex-Secret Service agent Sean King encounters a dark world of mathematicians, codes, and spies. His search for answers soon leads him to more shocking violence-and an autistic girl with an extraordinary genius.

Now, only by working with his partner, Michelle Maxwell, who is battling her own personal demons, can he catch a killer...and stop a national threat.

    The abridged version, narrated by Ron McClarty was an exceptional listening experience - however; the unabridged version was flat. The narrator obviously was not the right person for this particular assignment. Get the abridged version !

    I enjoyed the book and the narrator.

  • Gary R.

    Loved this book! Love the King and Maxwell series! Having an interest in psychology as well as mystery/detective novels, I really enjoyed the in depth personal analysis of Michelle Maxwell and the relationship between she and Sean King, from a psychological perspective. The overall story was complex, but very fascinating. As usual, Baldacci leaves you on the edge of your seat until the very last....good read! I also enjoyed the narration, Brick is talented!

  • Todd Olsen

    Great fast paced read. Scott Brick is my favorite narrator. His rear of this book is one of my favorite books of the series so far.

    This is an interesting book however not great. The narration was poor. I would not recommend this one.

  • genomo

    I really enjoyed this book. The mix of historical overtones with a twisting plot made this one of Baldacci's best.

  • Abbey

    Very good from beginning to end. Kept you on edge through out the entire book.

  • Anonymous

    The story rambles quite a bit...too disjointed and not a few logical leaps in the plot. The "typing up of loose ends" at the end of the story seems rather contrived. I really like Scott Brick's reading, but that can't justify a recommendation of this title. If you're a die-hard Baldacci fan, then I suppose it's worth a look.
