Split Second Author:David Baldacci At crucial moments eight years apart, two Secret Service agents are distracted -- with disastrous results: in one case, a presidential candidate is assassinated, and in the second, one is kidnapped. The two disgraced agents set out to trace the myriad connections between the events.
Baldacci is a master of suspense, great book! 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 responsiblity vanished into thin air.
One of the most enjoyable Baldacci books I have read. Baldacci captures your interest with the prolouge and holds it throughout the book. While the resolution of the plot is perhaps a little farfetched, that is easily forgiven from wanting to discover how it ends.
