Watch King & Maxwell, TNT's new series based on David Baldacci's blockbuster novels, on Mondays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)

After the #1 New York Times bestsellers Split Second, Hour Game, Simple Genius, and First Family, Sean King and Michelle Maxwell return in their most shocking case: a high stakes struggle where the relentless needs of national security run up against the absolute limits of the human mind.


Edgar Roy--an alleged serial killer held in a secure, fortress-like Federal Supermax facility-is awaiting trial. He faces almost certain conviction. Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called in by Roy's attorney, Sean's old friend and mentor Ted Bergin, to help work the case. But their investigation is derailed before it begins--en route to their first meeting with Bergin, Sean and Michelle find him murdered.
It is now up to them to ask the questions no one seems to want answered: Is Roy a killer? Who murdered Bergin? With help from some surprising allies, they continue to pursue the case. But the more they dig into Roy's past, the more they encounter obstacles, half-truths, dead-ends, false friends, and escalating threats from every direction. Their persistence puts them on a collision course with the highest levels of the government and the darkest corners of power. In a terrifying confrontation that will push Sean and Michelle to their limits, the duo may be permanently parted. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “A complex puzzle…Baldacci is a master craftsman.”

    Associated Press

  • “Another surefire triumph.”

    Barnes & Noble editorial review

  • “David Baldacci’s longtime narrator of choice, Ron McLarty, teams up with Orlagh Cassidy to deliver one of Baldacci’s most exciting thrillers. Truly, they are a dynamic duo…McLarty and Cassidy handle the story’s tense moments extraordinarily well. Cassidy gives each of the four female principal characters a distinctive voice. The sound effects and engineering are superb. The last quarter of the book is riddled with explosive moments, with a new surprise every minute. Listeners won’t discern who the real villains are until the very end.”


  • “Baldacci’s realistic plot blends patriotism and naked ambition, greed and paranoia and bureaucratic infighting…This novel is action-adventure, the plot ricocheting between isolated Maine woods and Washington power corridors, with stops in Virginia and New York…Authentic scenario, mystery piled on misdirection, and more double-crosses than a tic-tac-toe tournament.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A #1 New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller
  • A Publishers Weekly Bestseller
