“It was as though every wicked thought she’d ever had, every deviant dream she’d ever nursed, every screwed-up fantasy she’d ever forced deep within her, had risen dramatically to the surface. Tonight, Michelle Maxwell was going to kill a man.”
It is from this shocking moment that mega-seller David Baldacci’s latest thriller explodes into action—and we are shot, head first, back into the lives of Secret Service agents Sean King and Michelle Maxwell (featured in Split Second and Hour Game).
Dogged by personal demons, Maxwell seeks solace in a psychiatric institution after a vicious barroom brawl, while King is bewildered by his partner’s rapid decline. Happy for a diversion, he investigates a murder at a secret retreat where scientific geniuses are working to surpass the capabilities of the most sophisticated microprocessor in the world. But why do so many of the key players in this menacing project have ties to the institution where Maxwell is convalescing? Soon, the partners will be reunited in a race against time to expose a plot that could unhinge the entire global power structure…and destroy what’s left of their lives.
