The book sleeve says: "When is a serial killer not a serial killer? When are the hands on a clock not the hands on a clock? When you play the ... Hour Game."

"A woman is found murdered in the woods with a special watch on her wrist-and what seemed a simple case soon escalates into a nightmare. The criminal methods of some of th emost 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 will be."

For those of you who enjoy a complicated serial murder mystery...enjoy!

From the dust jacket leaves:
"A 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 will be.
Drawn into this violent affair are two Secret Service agents turned private investigators, Sean King and Michelle Maxwell. Both have been hired to prove a man's innocence in a domestic burglary involving an aristocratic, if dysfunctional, family. Soon stunning secrets will lead the partners into the middle of a franctic search for a killer unlike any they've confronted before.
As the Hour Game barrels forward, Sean and Michelle face a macabre puzzle and uncover one horrifying revelation after another. Nearing the truth, they will find that their own lives are in danger. And then they're hit with the biggest surprise of all. When you play the Hour Game, you HAVE to play to WIN...but time's running out.
For them all."
This book was SO captivating. I could not put it down, and read the entire thing in one day...

Middle-of-the-road murder mystery centered on two private investigators, both former Secret Service agents. Of course, one is male and the other female, so there's a little bit of flirting going on. A convoluted plot about a serial killer that includes extramarital affairs, drug use, money and greed. There's a minor sub-plot about Civil War reenactments which I found to be interesting. Otherwise, a pretty predictable vacation read.

Baldacci is great at creating multiple, intriguing storylines and then pulling them all together to make for an excellent and unforced ending to the mystery.

This second story involving Sean King and Michelle Maxwell takes the reader on a two-pronged mystery involving a southern-plantation style matriarch-led family with a soap-opera life and a copy-cat serial murderer.

The theft from the wealthy family's home to the copy-cat murderer (who is copying several of recent history's serial murders by leaving "calling cards") is a must read for anyone who loves to try to figure out the who-is-it? type novel. The main question: is there one murderer or two?

I like this series!!! King and Maxwell make a really good team. I usually super natural thrillers but I had remembered that I read "Saving Faith" a long time ago and really like it.

This is the second book and the series so we get to see King and Maxwell settle into their working relationship. They have been hired to investigate a burglary but then get lead to a series of murders that are some what copy cats.

I never was bored but at the same time, I thought there were a lot of characters to follow and maybe one or two too many murders. I WAS surprise to finally find out who the murderer was. I've already read "Simple Genius" and it was great!! What I've noticed so far is that Baldacci doesn't rehash past events word for word from the previous novel. He always manages to say just enough so we get the idea but no so little to where we don't have to read the books in succession.

Loved it. Can't read the of his books!!!

Happy Reading!!! =)

Two disgraced former Secret Service officers team up to solve a series of copy-cat crimes in this exciting new thriller by a master of the game. Sean King was momentarily distracted when a presidential candidate he'd been guarding was assassinated a few feet from where he stood, and Michelle Maxwell left the Service under a similar cloud when she lost a "protectee" to an ingenious kidnapping scheme, events told in Baldacci's typical terse, fast-paced style in Split Second. Now partners in a private investigation firm in a small Virginia town, they're hired to investigate a burglary at the home of a wealthy local family. But even before the chief suspect in the break-in meets his death in a gruesome slaying reminiscent of a serial killer long since caught and punished, King and Maxwell get caught up in a string of other murders, each of which copies the techniques of another madman, from San Francisco's Zodiac Killer to Chicago's infamous John Wayne Gacy. While the two protagonists aren't especially complex or well-developed, the action never stops, and Baldacci's trademark pacing keeps the reader turning pages until the denouement, which unfortunately isn't quite as satisfying as the rest of the novel

Thee are almost as many suspects in this novel as there are victims. and there is plenty of those. but figuring how they are connected is like looking for the perverbal needle in a hay stack. Mr. Baldacci keeps you wondering whats up next and the conclusion is not a suspected one. Very good story. Thanks David.

Synopsis:
A 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.

No one can understand the murderer's motives or who the next victim will be.

Both have been hired to prove a man's innocence in a domestic burglary involving an aristocratic, if dysfunctional, family. Soon stunning secrets will lead the partners into the middle of a frantic search for a killer unlike any they've confronted before.
As the Hour Game barrels forward, Sean and Michelle face a macabre puzzle and uncover one horrifying revelation after another. Nearing the truth, they will find that their own lives are in danger. And then they're hit with the biggest surprise of all. When you play the Hour Game, you have to play to win. But time is running out... for all of them.

I have read many of Baldacci's books but I didn't finish this one.

This story is full of twists and turns in all directions. I suspected everyone in the script at one time or another (except, the perpetrator), and was never completely right or absolutely wrong. A very good guessing game of a story.

I had heard good things about David Baldacci and decided to read one of his books. There are tons of reviews already about Hour Game so I won't spend time telling what it's about. Baldacci is a decent writer and I enjoyed his book. That said, it's just not my kind of book. I'll go back to John Grisham, Dennis Lehane and Ann Rule.

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 how many killers are running lose.

This is the second book in the King and Maxwell series. It was a fast moving story that kept me turning the pages. I did get a bit confused with there being so many characters and so many plot threads. I also thought that Baldacci could have easily cut out 100 pages from this story with no problem. Overall, I liked it and am looking forward to the next book in the series. My rating: 4 Stars.

My Review
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 Maxwell. I would recommend this book to those who like twists and turns and mysteries that are hard to solve.

A serial killer is on the move and two former Secret Service agents who have formed a P.I. firm must find him...fast. The novel grabs you from the first page when it describes the killer trudging through the woods in the rain with a body slung over his shoulder intent upon disposing of it in such a way as to be positioned in an exact way...and then hurriedly return to his car anxious to write a letter...This is a great read.

Two disgraced former Secret Service officers team up to solve a series of copy-cat crimes in this exciting new thriller by a master of the game. Sean King was momentarily distracted when a presidential candidate he'd been guarding was assassinated a few feet from where he stood, and Michelle Maxwell left the Service under a similar cloud when she lost a "protectee" to an ingenious kidnapping scheme, events told in Baldacci's typical terse, fast-paced style in Split Second. Now partners in a private investigation firm in a small Virginia town, they're hired to investigate a burglary at the home of a wealthy local family. But even before the chief suspect in the break-in meets his death in a gruesome slaying reminiscent of a serial killer long since caught and punished, King and Maxwell get caught up in a string of other murders, each of which copies the techniques of another madman, from San Francisco's Zodiac Killer to Chicago's infamous John Wayne Gacy. While the two protagonists aren't especially complex or well-developed, the action never stops, and Baldacci's trademark pacing keeps the reader turning pages until the denouement, which unfortunately isn't quite as satisfying as the rest of the novel.
