He’s copying famous serial killers.
And the HOUR GAME has just begun…


A woman is found murdered in the woods. It seems like a simple case but it soon escalates into a terrible nightmare. Someone is replicating the killing styles of the most infamous murderers of all time. No one knows this criminal’s motives…or who will die next.

Two ex-Secret Service agents, Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, have been hired to defend a man’s innocence in a burglary involving an aristocratic family. Then a series of secrets leads the partners right into the frantic hunt that is confounding even the FBI. Now King and Maxwell are playing the Hour Game, uncovering one horrifying revelation after another and putting their lives in danger. For the closer they get to the truth, the closer they get to the most shocking surprise of all.

    " I couldn't finish this. I got into the second chapter and the characters were just too cheesy and contrived. I have rarely given up on a book, but I couldn't stick it out with this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tariq | 2/13/2014

    " Though a little bit long I liked the novel much and it was much of a page turner read. the plot was tight and hard to get who the murderer is till the end although it became a little bit apparent before it was actually disclosed who the culprit is. I would recommend it to anyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dominique | 2/9/2014

    " I absolutely LOVE Baldacci! I can never put one of his books down when I start reading them and this one was no exception. If you haven't discovered Baldacci and this is a great one to start with! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janeene Timothy | 2/3/2014

    " Easy, fast read. Enjoyed very much! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan | 2/1/2014

    " Another Baldacci hit. Grittier than usual but a fun mystery. Sean King is totally boss. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Collier | 1/22/2014

    " Baldacci is great. I love this genre. I felt the characters were well developed. I was surprised at the amount of book left when it was discovered who had been the murderer. It worked though. After reading it I was lucky enough to go to a Civil War reenactment. Cool. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Beese | 1/12/2014

    " Another great "edge of your seat" Baldacci read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri Lannan | 1/3/2014

    " I had read another David Baldacci book and had a hard time getting into it. That was not the case with this book. I got into this one right away and it held my attention. Maybe I am naive but I was really surprised by who the killer was! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sbugsy | 12/30/2013

    " I am listening to this series out of order so it loses some of the drama because you know that the characters have survived but I still love these books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aimee | 12/13/2013

    " All his books keep my attention, but get to be repetitive and predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wally O'carroll | 12/13/2013

    " Page turner right to the end! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Skeetoid | 12/12/2013

    " 3.5 stars. Baldacci is just so exciting! What else can I say? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Salsadancer | 11/29/2013

    " #2 novel in the Sean King and Michelle Maxwell series; published 2004 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peg | 11/13/2013

    " Another winner from Baldacci. Multiple suspects, strong characters, carries the reader right along. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda | 9/26/2013

    " Excellent suspense thriller! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jennifer Mcpherson | 7/31/2013

    " What is the use you read a book and there isn't a conclusion...you are not sure eho did what and why ...I thought when you read there should be clarity :-( "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Thomas | 4/19/2013

    " Another gem in the King and Maxwell series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 4/10/2013

    " This is the first time in a while that a book has completely creeped me out- I also wasn't able to predict the ending, which is also a good thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Ahronian | 3/4/2013

    " Good stuff, as I would expect from one of my favorite writers. Kept me guessing till the very last page. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don Paske | 12/11/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Curt | 6/22/2012

    " I have read better Baldacci. It kept my interest, but was not riveted. I did like that you kept guessing who the killer was. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 5/23/2012

    " Several surprises in this one. However, at some point in the novel I couldn't help but think, "Ok, ok solve this already!" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth (Liz) | 2/7/2012

    " Good mindless mystery/thriller. I read it in one day last week, and today when I looked at it I couldn't think of what it was about until I looked at the cover. So, I really enjoyed it while I read it, but it obviously didn't stick........ "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vee | 9/12/2011

    " This book was cool, I might check out Baldacci's earlier books in the future. Balducci created a decent villain. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Jespersen | 9/10/2011

    " This was a fun book to listen to. The author keeps you guessing pretty as he weaves the story together. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 6/23/2011

    " I thought it stated slow, but it certainly picked up to a wonderful pace. "

    " This was my first time reading this author, and as a mystery and crime novel fan, I really enjoyed it. It was recommended to me by my 93 year old grandmother! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 5/14/2011

    " There seem to be too many "who did it" in this book. Twists and turns and an ending I did not expect. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerwin | 5/9/2011

    " quite frankly the best book i ever read . this book vaulted him ahead of clancy , roberts, grisham and rowling as my favourite author "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Babs | 5/6/2011

    " Didn't hold me like I expected and was easy to put down, making it easy to miss some of the clues in the plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 4/10/2011

    " Excellent, I've enjoyed this book very much because along with the gruesome detail of the deaths runs an great story which moves along fast and something I really appreciate when reading a book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bobbie | 4/6/2011

    " I love David Balacci - I like him more than John Grisham (and I've read everything John Grisham has written). I'm going to start reading Split Second. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 4/6/2011

    " An OK story but probably more intricate than is possible. Baldacci is good at this genre, however. "
