The world can change forever in a single...


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...

    I really like Baldacci’s Amos Decker series, but I was a little apprehensive about the King and Maxwell books since they’re quite different. However, I loved the book in general, it was very well done, with one of the most exciting endings I’ve ever read in any book! I would highly recommend the book to any fan of detective fiction.

    Great book where the writer does a fabulous job of defining terms and concepts with great style. At whatever level of management, this is a very informative read.
