    1. Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are hired to help prove that Junior Deaver did not break into and burglarize the Battle family's estate. But as they are questioning the Battle family, the Police Chief asks them to look into a murder. The victim is made to look like a casualty of the Zodiac Killer. Soon more bodies are turning up, each made to look like the victim of a famous serial killer. As King and Maxwell's original case becomes entwined with the serial murders, they begin to question just ho [...]

    2. I like Baldacci's writing quite a bit. He's one of few authors that can usually keep me guessing until close to the end of the book. He also has the ability to create characters that feel real, and he offers insight into human nature. However, in 'Hour Game' I feel these two elements were missing. Michelle Maxwell and Sean King - the principal characters in this book and a few others - were just plain flat, 2-dimensional. In addition, he tended to be more verbose than usual: he would explain som [...]

    3. This is my first David Baldacci book, and most likely my last. It was a free pick-up, something to read while I was on vacation. The book is awful. It's so bad it may be the most humorous novel I've read this year. It's like a parody of a someone writing a bestselling novel. Someone at Mr. Baldacci's publisher needs to hire a first rate copy editor, because obviously, there is not one on the staff, This book is filled with sentences and paragraphs so incoherent it would have put my high school A [...]

    4. This book is a taut thriller pairing Sean King and Michelle Maxwell. The duo is hired as deputies to the police chief Todd Williams to solve a string of murders committed by a serial killer. The ride is bumpy with bodies falling left and right, ending in a superb climax. The author builds up the suspense beautifully right till the end. The characters are interesting especially the entire Battle family and the ending is unpredictable.I enjoyed this edge-of-the-seat thriller.

    5. One of the finest books I've ever read; one book I cannot put down. I am already too sleepy but i just cant put it down. I like how the story was fast paced and there was no dull chapter and I love how the characters simply evolved and how my brain gets to think on who will be killed next.The intensity of the book from the first chapter to the last has always been a 10! A perfect 10! David Baldacci has made a new turn on how murders are done. The book is intricately written to include all clues [...]

    6. Decepcionante.Empieza muy bien, pero a medida que avanza se vuelve absurdo. Las motivaciones para los asesinatos son ridículas en su mayoría. Pasan cosas que son extremadamente convenientes para el unsub (tengo ganas de llamarle asi, como en criminal minds :P ). El unsub es expert@ en todo, consigue información que nadie más puede, entra en lugares con extremada facilidad. Todo en este libro es demasiado conveniente simplemente porque la trama lo necesita así. La primera parte es entretenid [...]

    7. What a difference a year makes! Baldacci's debut novel featuring disgraced Secret Service agents Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, Split Second, earned just 3 stars from me; it's worth reading, sort of, if only to see how the book series that spawned a TV series got started - but it's just too simplistic and, in some spots, just plain silly, to be worthy of a higher rating. Since I consider Baldacci to be an accomplished (and favorite) author, though, I figured - make that hoped - that this series [...]

    8. Too much of everything: Characters, information and eventsWhen the small town of Wrightsburg is rocked by gruesome murders, both ex-secret service agents, Michelle Maxwell and Sean King, now private investigators (partners) are hot on the murderers tail. What sets the murderer apart is how he copies famous serial killers when he commits a crime. The light banter between Michelle and Sean are the highlight of the book. Their bickering does bring comic relief to an otherwise intense thriller. Howe [...]

    9. I tried reading one of Baldacci’s novels a couple years ago and became disinterested around page twenty. He is extremely popular (apparently) and seems to publish a new title every other day.I figured he was not an author for me. Then came the dreaded moment: bedtime with nothing to read! Damn. I usually have a stack ready to go—but not this time. While desperately searching, I came across a box of books left by a friend who moved. Double Damn. The books were all either Romance or Political [...]

    10. **my second read**King & Michelle from Charottlesville, work on killings in Wrightsburg. The plot link to murderer is easy. The book's link to the "Hour game" title is good. Wrist Watch "stems" are pulled out stopping at a hour 1:00, 2:00, etc. hence set to the "hour" are placed on bodies/victims."Zodiac" Letters/Symbols & Zodiac Wrist Watches set at a hour?Murders point to a Battle family. A good character, Dr. Sylvia Diaz, dept. med. examiner had an affair from her husband, Steve Diaz, [...]

    11. While I enjoyed the book and it was an interesting read, it was much longer than it needed to be. In addition there were several tangents/red herrings that had been taken/thrown out but never resolved that it left me a bit frustrated at the end. The end was not as satisfying as it could - and should - have been but that has to remain unsaid as it would be a major spoilerOverall, because the story was interesting, kept me guessing throughout and was generally well written, I liked the read.Rating [...]

    12. This time King & Maxwell were involved with serial murders in their town, Wrightsburg, Virginia, while helping a lawyer friend (Harry) who had a client accused of robbery at Battles' residence. At first, the serial murders seemed to be copycat of works from infamous serial killers (The Zodiac, Son of Sam, etc). But King and Maxwell found that there was more than meets the eye. That everything seemed to link back the Battles family-------------Another great book -- I definitely love this seri [...]

    13. No creo que este libro sea la mejor presentacion de David Baldacci, es mi primer libro que leo de este autor, el cual es muy reconocido en este genero.Que puedo decir del libro, primeramente no hice empatia con los protagonistas, King & Maxwell, ambos me los encuentro mal estructurados, no dan ni ton ni son. La narracion me la encontre en muchas ocasiones repetitivas, principalmente cuando describian los personajes. Hablando de personajes, demasiados, llega un punto que el autor se enreda ta [...]

    14. Overall this was a very enjoyable book. I enjoyed the style and feel of the book, I just feel it was a touch long to keep up the suspense and tension throughout. There was a big list of characters and the interactions with them were very intriguing and interesting. In some sense I just feel there was too much going on. That said it was a very enjoyable read that I would recommend to others, but I can see why some others don't take to it. Unusually I worked out the culprits on this one and quite [...]

    15. A very long book for the second King and Maxwell book, six months or so following the events in the first book which brought their two characters together. Slightly sleepy Wrightsburg in Virginia sees a spate of murders, where it is not clear whether more than one killer is involved - pretty violent stuff and some exciting scenes

    16. The second book of the series pairing ex secret service now investigators King and Maxwell. In this story they are on the hunt for a serial killer and it's non stop action from beginning to end. Plenty of intense moments and creatively written scenarios. Highly entertaining

    17. I enjoyed this novel from David Baldacci. It had all the twists and turns necessary to keep me turning the pages. I had a few of the twists figured out before they were revealed, but that just tells me that Baldacci left the necessary clues for me to piece it together. Some of they "whys" took me by surprise though and I enjoyed that. My one complaint is the lack of development of King and Maxwell, the protagonists. Sometimes I feel like in a effort the keep things a mystery we miss out on impor [...]

    18. Up front, this is not a good book. It started out mildly interesting for the first chapter, up until we met the heroes. Then it started a quick, but long decline into sheer boredom. The story is trite, and reminded me mostly of something I would have seen in an 80s television movie. The secondary characters are so unoriginal and boring that a 2D person would look at them and think they are quite flat. The writing is uninspired. Drunken inspiration would have helped. When the author wasn't busy s [...]

    19. Downloaded from AudibleNarrator: Scott BrickPublisher: Hachette Audio, 2004Length: 14 hours and 25 min.Publisher's SummaryA woman is found murdered in the woods with a very special watch on her wrist, and what seemed a simple case soon escalates into a nightmare. The criminal methods of some of the most infamous killers of all time are being replicated by a new predator who stalks and strikes victims with a cunning brilliance. No one can understand the murderer's motives or who the next victim w [...]

    20. Baldacci throws everything, including the kitchen sink, at you in this action-packed thriller, the 2nd in the King and Maxwell series. A killer stalks Wrightsburg Virginia, imitating infamous serial killers with each murder. Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, two ex-Secret Service agents, working now as Private Detectives in the area are called in to help with the investigation by the local police chief. As well, they are working a separate case for a lawyer, defending a break and entering suspect. [...]

    21. Not surprisingly, David Baldacci's books become predictable and formulaic after a while. This book was an enjoyable, easy read, and I got through it quickly. Sometimes it's nice to just be able to read a book without using a ton of brain power.Probably the most annoying part of the book was not the predictability, but the chapter where the investigators sit down and review the datae chapter is designed to look like they're all reviewing the information together, to make sure they haven't missed [...]

    22. This started out so bad I gave up on it and started reading the next one but the next one's plot was so clearly dependent on knowing the outcome of this one that I went back. It really dragged but the end was a bit twisty. That being said, I almost don't want to bother with the next one now because I was so irritated by this one. Despite the presence of a purportedly strong female sidekick character, the fact that she's always referred to by her first name while the main character is referred to [...]

    23. This is the 2nd book in the King and Maxwell series. It was a very interesting read and kept me turning the pages. The book could have been shorter as there were entirely too many characters and the plot had subplots. Each chapter brought more questions without any clues or answers. I do have to admit that Baldacci is very good at keeping us guessing and the killer was quite surprising and unexpected. I now look forward to reading the next in the series as I do enjoy the partnership of King and [...]

    24. If I hadn't been so tired I would have ended up reading all night, good job I could have a lie in. A serial killer is murdering people in Maxwell and King's neighbourhood, seemingly there are no connections. However Sean King is a smart guy and he finds links. There are also the Battle's, a rich family who have a lot of connections, but with the patriarch in hospital and a burgalry there's a few skeletons in the cupboards who want out.There are good characters, some gruesome murders and a few re [...]

    25. So many characters! So many murders! So many mysteries! This book had me in the story from page one right until the end. The plot and the buildup was so so good and the way the characters intersected and the way every story and person had another deeper layer of darkness has very interesting. The reveal in the end wherein the killer is was a bit expected if not completely surprising. Still it touched a lot of points on intentions and lost love and family and desires and in the end the satisfact [...]

    26. Audiobook review - 4 stars story ♫ 4 stars audio. I enjoyed the story. I was shocked how far the killer was able to go before caught. Also all those murders and no FBI or major man-hunt went on that didn't seem plausible. I'm happy that Ron McLarty has "Re" narrated to books. It's a great narrator. I'm really looking forward to book 5 where he teams up with Orlagh Cassidy! Together, they are spectacular.

    27. i loved it and loved every page of it. dont get let down by the size of the book because you wont even realize that you are half way through the book because of its pace and intensitye book has its share of thrills, actions, blood drives and wits and humour filled through the pages.I liked how david baldacci had kept it light for the readers to keep the track and yet the twists and turns blows your mind completelytrue page turner

    28. Fabulous read and enjoying it a lot. Always love David Baldacci. I have now finished reading this fab book by a favourite writer. Loved it. Recommend it highly.
