At first I didn't think I would like this book, but I ended up really enjoying it. The contrasts between the East and West and their ways of doing things is intriguing. And Soncai, the main character is caught between the two worlds with great insight into each of them.

First Family (King & Maxwell, Bk 4) (Audio CD) (Abridged)
Review Date: 9/11/2016


David Baldacci always delivers a good story - this time there are actually TWO crimes to be solved. One is the murder of Michelle Maxwell's mother and the other the kidnapping of the niece of the President. Sean and Michelle solve both, with help on both from other people. And along the way, they FINALLY decide they are attracted to each other (DUH, we knew that all along!).

The story is not as simple as it seems, and there is a lot of action in both mysteries.
