    1. None of my friends have reviewed this book. Friends, this is your fault. I hold you all responsible. As well as my mother's eighty-five year-old friend who loaned her this book. It just goes to show you that even elderly ladies can't be trusted, particularly ones with brain cancer. Just sayin'.A moderately readable beginning that careened between two ex-Secret Service Agents running a detective agency and the adventures of a lone soldier on a critical mission in the Middle East. Son running away [...]


    2. Another excellent suspense thriller from David Baldacci. His first-class writing flows along easily with an intriguing plot, interesting characters, and edge of your seat action from the first page to the last. Highly recommended.


    3. Mimicking the highs and lows of this novel, my rating had some higher points along with some lower ones (which you wouldn’t know based on my final overall rating). But trust me, my friends, they were there. But that’s the joy of reading: expect the unexpected. KING AND MAXWELL started off well enough, with desert scenery and a finger placed on the kill switch and high powered weapons pointed at foreheads, tripped over its own two feet a bit in the middle with some Swiss cheese dialogue and g [...]


    4. Something not so good happened between publication of this book and its predecessor, The Sixth Man; the new TV series based on Baldacci's series about former Secret Service agents turned private investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell was canceled after a single season on TNT. That's a shame, IMHO - I really enjoyed the show that debuted June 10 and starred Jon Tenney and Rebecca Romijn in the title roles. But that said (and the good looks of Tenney and Romijn notwithstanding), 'tis almost [...]


    5. The sixth novel to feature private investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell starts out with an unexpected and clandestine international incident and continues along a break-neck story-line whereby the ripple effects of this event lead all the way to the steps of the Oval OfficeNG AND MAXWELL opens with a sequence set amidst a bleak Middle Eastern landscape as a late night truck delivery is stopped before reaching its intended destination. U.S. Army soldier Sam Wingo is driving the small box [...]


    6. I have read a few books from Baldacci in the past but this might be the best book of his I have read so far. Baldacci is acknowledge as one of the masters of the thriller genre with dozens of top selling books under his belt, and after reading this I can’t disagree with this accolade. The plot of King and Maxwell is gripping and kept me turning the page. There are tons of twists and turns as the two privet investigators work out what is really going on, and none of them feel ridiculous or out [...]


    7. When the sixth book in an established series is entitled simply by the names of the series characters, you have to say to yourself, there must be a movie deal in here somewhere. Well, you would be wrong, it is a television deal replete with a pitch from the author to watch the show, also titled King and Maxwell. That's my biggest beef. But there are others.The book itself attempts to channel the Iran Contra affair in the 1980s. Two former Secret Service agents Sean King and Michelle Maxwell get [...]


    8. Baldacci returns with a new instalment of the King and Maxwell saga, infusing a little of the television series into the story, with the addition of Mr. Socially-Awkward, Edgar. When the PI pair come upon a teenage boy during the middle of a thunderstorm, they learn he's been told of his father's death in Afghanistan, another casualty in one of Bush's futile wars. What seems to be a cut-and-dry situation soon becomes all the more complicated when Tyler receives an email from his dad. The communi [...]


    9. Sam Wingo had a mission. Drive a truck across Afghanistan and deliver its forty-eight hundred pounds of cargo. But, as one might expect, it's easier said than done. When he arrives at his destination, the recipient wasn't who he expected. Instead, a group of men identifying themselves as CIA operatives told him the plans had changed, and he's to deliver his cargo to them. Despite his orders to destroy it, along with himself and anyone else in the blast radius, Wingo decides he'd like to play it [...]


    10. I have wanted to read a novel by David Baldacci for longer than I can remember. He writes in the genre that I love and can't get enough of. Action-packed, espionage, unstoppable villains, and gripping plots are what I expect from writers such as Baldacci. Thankfully he doesn't disappoint with the latest in his Sean King and Michelle Maxwell series. King and Maxwell begins with a soldier, Sam Wingo, carrying a 4800 pounds of cargo across the desert of the Middle East. Wingo does not know what's i [...]


    11. Sixth instalment in the Maxwell & King series. Some excerpts :The rear door was closed and secured with two different locks, one a key, the other a combo. Each lock was rated to be tamper-proof. The reality was, given time, any lock could be beaten and any door broken through.-------SEAN KING DROVE WHILE MICHELLE MAXWELL rode shotgun.This was the reverse of what the pair normally did. She usually drove the car, like she was piloting a ride at Daytona. And Sean hung on for dear life and mumbl [...]


    12. I am a David Baldacci fan. Ever since "Absolute Power" was new to shelves, my grandmother and I both read all of Baldacci's work. However, he's starting to lose it for me. This book feels more like a sell-out to promote his now-failed TV show of the same name (King & Maxwell). It's intriguing in parts for sure, but it lacks the suspense and intrigue of his other books. It also lacks an intriguing secondary plot line. We want to like the father even if "the world is against him!" but that wor [...]


    13. King and Maxwell by David Baldacci is a Grand Central Publication released in November 2013. I received a copy of this book from the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.In this sixth installment of the King and Maxwell series, we start off with Sean and Michelle coping with Michelle's near death experience and the physical and emotional scars left behind. As they are about to make plans to take a vacation, they find themselves in yet another murky situation they pretty much [...]


    14. Not a standalone bookFor me this is a book in two parts. I found the first third of the book mostly ho hum. There were some exciting parts, for instance how they found their teenage client, but there were lots of references to past books cases that left me, if not lost, bored The only other Baldacci book I’ve read is “The Innocent” which I found edge of my chair exciting right from the start, a completely different experience than “King and Maxwell”. After the first third of this book [...]


    15. It amazes me how Sean and Michelle end up in these crazy situations that start out as nothing, this book does that very well. You could tell right away that there was a larger conspiracy, but not the extent. When the why came out I was stunned, mostly because the reasons behind it were so petty and vindictive and didn't hurt the people that caused the problem in the first place.I did like how Sean and Michelle slowly unraveled things, how with every turn they seemed to come up against some heavy [...]


    16. It's been a while since I've read the others, but there's a little more banter here than I remember, and I have to wonder if it's because the series has been adapted for television. Intentional or not, there was just something about it that felt off. There's not much growth for the main characters, and I wonder if I'd care about them if I weren't already attached. Not the best in the series, but still an entertaining read for fans of the series.You can read an extended review on my blog:Review: [...]


    17. Super soldier Sam Wingo delivers a cargo "in country" as instructed, only to find the recipients are not what he was told. His son is told he was killed in action, but then receives a post mortem email. He hires Sean and Michelle, who find themselves pitted against the U.S. government and other unknown forces. Working with their new friend Edgar, who ferrets out information using U.S. intelligence assets, he helps identify the bad guys with a flimsy piece of data. Action packed though, and Balda [...]


    18. Listened to audiobook. Would give the story 3 stars and narrator/voice actors 4 stars a very enjoyable listen although I fear Baldacci's work is suffering a little from pattersonitis ie he publishes so much his stories are not as good as they used to be


    19. Glad that Edgar featured in this book so it really felt more like the series,lighter moments not as intense as previous books and enjoyable right up to the very last page,no peeking!


    20. King and Maxwell by David Baldacci is an exciting page-turner, sweetly paced, and an incredibly well-written story that features private investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell together for the sixth time, taking the reader on a pulsating journey of international intrigue and conspiracies at the highest level of the US government. This gripping story unfolds with US Army soldier Sam Wingo driving a cargo weighing about forty-eight hundred pounds for a late night delivery somewhere in the de [...]


    21. This sixth book in the King and Maxwell series was a bit of a letdown for me. I realize its publication, timed for the launch of the now-failed TV show of the same name, required some compromises but the final result was less than ideal.Former secret service agents Sean King and Michelle Maxwell have long since overcome their disgraced careers but they remain struggling private investigators with apparently few clients. The plot of this book comes about by pure chance when they happen to nearly [...]


    22. Full review: mysterysequels/king-anSean King and Michelle Maxwell are two ex-secret service agents, turned private investigators. However the cases they usually take on are not the typical PI cases (you know, a cheating spouse, some embezzlement, or protecting a celebrity or two). Their cases are always tied to the national security, their clients are either high profile or surrounded by deep and dangerous secrets, and nothing is easy about what they do every single day.In this last novel, Miche [...]


    23. This is the 6th King and Maxwell novel and it holds the banner high continuing to give a good read. The characters are the ones we've come to know (warts and all). The continue to grow and to get into scrapes that would overwhelm Sherlock Holmes and Dirty Harry simply by doinge right thing.This time they see a young man running through a storm with a gun in his hand. Michelle (doing the kind of thing she'd always dowhich is one of the slight flaws in this series. There's a very real eye roll fac [...]


    24. Somewhere between 3 stars and 4 stars. I don't like terrorist plots and political intrigue as much as just old fashioned murder mysteries.Likes:* Banter between Sean King and Michelle Maxwell* Edgar Roy, the computer genius, helping Sean and Michelle a little* Maxwell liking and wanting to help Tyler Wingo* Tyler being impressed that Michelle used to be a Secret Service agent* Lots of commercial name dropping (Panera, Starbucks, liquor brands, cars - Land Cruiser, Mercedes, etc.)(view spoiler)[* [...]


    25. New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci returns with his latest installment in the King and Maxwell series titled “King and Maxwell.” Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are former secret service agents who are now private investigators that capture clients in high profile cases. In Baldacci’s latest book, the two of them accidentally run into their newest client, a high school student Tyler Wingo, outside in the rain running away from home. Tyler’s dad is in the Army and involved in [...]


    26. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is just flat a fun read and sometimes you do not want to read serious things. Baldacci is an excellent writer, more importantly, he knows how to craft a story and to throw in just enough loose possibility to make it worth your while. For example, take the name of one of the lesser shady guys, Colonel Leon South. Take the name Oliver and extract the the letters "l" "e" and "o." Then take the "n" from North and you have Leon. Now change North to South and you hav [...]


    27. Another fast-paced offering, with conspiracies, changing political leanings, danger and suspense.Sean and Michelle bicker like an old married couple, and at least one character notices; Sean is ragged on for his lack of computer skills, and sometimes I wonder how Michelle managed to rise so high in the Secret Service, despite her physical ability - and then I figure she just used up her entire store of tact and diplomacy - but all these little flaws make the characters seem real. They have real [...]


    28. David Baldacci is an author who perhaps writes too much. For me very much a case of volume over quality. He can (and does) write some very good stuff indeed, but sadly also pumps out some very weak output. Trouble is, you never know quite what you are going to get.With King and Maxwell we get quite a large book and the quality is somewhat in the middle. It’s okay, seems slightly padded and the underlying plot background is a bit daft, but it is an easy enough page turner. As a pairing King and [...]


    29. It's the relationship between Michelle and Sean that keeps me reading these. Michelle's a independent woman who can take care of herself, it's not th sort of story where she constantly gets into trouble and needs Sean to bail her out. That's not to say she doesn't end up in situations where she's up to her neck in it, but Sean does too.They both come to the friendship with baggage, family, friends and ex-wives as well as emotional and psychological problems in the background. They're not perfect [...]


    30. I want to read the next book about King and Maxwell I did watch their TV show for a while, it was really good! Miss it! #31 How the mighty shall fall! Like the part about the incident in " The Beast " -- if you don't know what that is look it up. I felt sorry for Dana, for a second. I wonder if Michelle and Sean will ever get together other than that 1 time, lolA RE-read
