David Baldacci's Simple Genius

[ Edited ]
Baldacci's Deceptively Simple Story

Book Cover Image: Title: Simple Genius, Author: David Baldacci Buy It It's the latest from one of the biggest names in thrillerdom -- and in Simple Genius, David Baldacci's brought back the pair of Secret Service agents-turned P.I.'s that made Split Second and Hour Game such delights. Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are still trying to pick up the pieces after the grueling events of Hour Game, when Maxwell makes a self-destructive decision that nearly gets her killed. With his partner under treatment for her perilous emotional state, King takes on an investigation into a scientific think tank -- and finds the case leading right toward the institution where Maxwell is being treated. She joins King on the hunt, and the partners penetrate a secret world, and a society with a mysterious agenda. And by the time they understand what's really at stake, it may be too late to do anything about it.

Whether you're a follower of the King/Maxwell duo in particular, or a fan of all of Baldacci's books, you can share your thoughts about Simple Genius here.

Re: David Baldacci's Simple Genius

I just finished this book and I loved it! These two characters are great together from their inception two books ago. It had some "Davin chi Code- eque" moments and Baldacci did a great job of keeping me guessing with the story line. Best book in the three book series.
