Quotes

  • “A fast-paced thriller.”

    - Denver Post
  • “A masterful craftsman, Baldacci manipulates his story line with great effectiveness, creating a sense of danger and foreboding and imbuing even secondary characters with enough depth and dimension to rescue them from stereotypes. Conspiracies and mysteries abound in this taut mystery that weaves together action-packed scenarios and solid emotional impact…Split Second will solidify his position at the top.”

    - Barnes & Noble, editorial review

    " Great fast moving plot with plenty of twists and action. I think this is one of my favourites. In addition, if Scott Brick is the narrator, you will really get the best of the story. "

    " The first book about the Secret Service duo of King and Maxell. Both have been scapegoats for incidents that happened on the job. When Michelle Maxwell starts investigating, she looks up the ex-agent and forces him to re-examine an 8-year-old case. The action and suspense pick up as their two cases begin to entertwine and their lives are suddenly on the line. Hard to put down. "
