Publisher's Summary

David Baldacci's heart-stopping Hour Game is the second fast-paced thriller in the King and Maxwell series.
Following their collaboration in Split Second, ex-Secret Service agents Sean King and Michelle Maxwell have gone into partnership and are investigating the robbery of some secret documents at the residence of the incredibly wealthy Battle family. It seems like a straightforward case of domestic burglary, but soon they begin to suspect links to larger, more terrifying events now shaking the prosperous town of Wrightsburg....
The unidentified corpse of an attractive young woman turns up in the woods; two high school kids, one shot in the back, the other in the face, are found dead in their car; a successful lawyer is discovered stabbed to death in her own home. A serial killer is on the loose. The murderer kills in the manner of famous killers of the past but takes care to leave a stopped watch at the scene of each crime - corresponding to the victim's position on his hit list.
As the killing spree escalates, it seems that the fractured Battle family are somehow involved, and Maxwell and King suddenly find themselves racing to solve an intricate puzzle, one that is full of tantalizing clues but barren of solid evidence and one that is leaving even the FBI confounded. And all the while, the body count is rising....
Hour Game is followed by Simple Genius, First Family, The Sixth Man and King and Maxwell.

Triple E! Excellent, excellent, excellent.

Great story, characters and narration. You won't be dissapointed. Classic whodunnit that can match any of the greats you heard before. Had me hooked from beginning to surprising end.

David Baldacci and Scott Brick do it again

Good story as always and excellent narration. Pity Book one in the series is damaged in the recording.

Very, very...... very disappointing

What would have made Hour Game better?

A better and more tied together plot. There were loads of holes in the plot and it all seems very amateurish.

What will your next listen be?

Not David Baldacci. Michael Connelly more than likely - he's a different class.

What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He's is a fairly good narrator. He made the best of a very bad book.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No - I couldn't recommend any aspect of it.

Any additional comments?

Like some of the other reviewers of this book I am astounded that this went to print... it's as though DB wrote this when he was a teen and needed to get a book out quickly! Very sloppy plot evolution - loads of holes, seemingly last minute plot fill-ins to make things tie together... really frustrating to read/listen to.
