    Sometimes you stay up late with a book because it s just that great and you can t bear to put it down other times, you find yourself up late because you just want this PoS book out of your life as soon as possible Like a lot of people right now, I picked up Split Second because it s recently been made into a TV show and I was interested in checking out the source material Usually the visual media conversion of a book comes off the poorer in any comparison, but after having read the book, I have to say that every change the production company has made has come off as genius in comparison to the poorly written, illogical mess that is Split Second.It s one of those books that s not just bad, it s boring I want to call the prose workmanlike, but honestly, I ve read a lot of myster thrillers, it s a genre that generally lends itself to fairly functional storytelling and the prose in Split Second was clunkier and less inspired than its peers The characters were flat, uninteresting and felt a bit too much like Baldacci s wish fulfillment Related to this, I hated how he wrote Maxwell and the other major female character, Joan Dillinger, both separately and together view spoiler The relationship between King...

    Do you remember when you first saw Star Wars If you are a certain gender and a certain age, it was THE defining movie of your childhood You were either Luke or Han when you played You craved everything Star Wars.Then The Empire Strikes Back came out and it added so many layers You were blown away No.I am your father rocked your little mind Yoda letting the audience know No There is another led to rampant speculation for a few years about where the story was going to go next.And then we got Return of the Jedi which pretty much showed us that George Lucas was just making this stuff up as he went along Luke and Leia are brother and sister and it was always Lucas intention Watch the kiss in Empire again and tell me if you believe that And then he made the real first three and things get out of control Chewbacca and Yoda are old friends Kenobi and Anakin are enemies for about 30 seconds before Obi Wan runs and hides for twenty years but watch the first one and Kenobi is calling Vader Darth , as if it was his name and they knew each other for awhile.Basi...

    Secret Service Agents Sean King and Michelle Maxwell watched their careers go up in smoke in a split second Though their events occurred eight years apart, they become connected by the events that altered their courses It also seems now that the two events might have their own connection I enjoyed the story, especially the pace as there was rarely time to relax before the next challenge was presented I liked the murky characters and odd directions the story would take, sometimes making it a bit convoluted but always interesting While I figured out the villain, the motivation wasn t something I could have ever deduced Scott Brick s narration set the right tone for King and Maxwell s relationship dynamics I ll continue listeni...

    A good quick read by a very talented storyteller Split Second is the beginning of another Baldacci storyline called the King and Maxwell Series Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are two disgraced Secret Service Agents whos presidential candidate s both were either killed or kidnapped Through an elaborately connected chain of events, though not seeming at the time, Maxwell and King team up to discover who is responsible for the conspiracy Admittedly, I like Baldacci s later Camel Club Series much, much better This was an engaging read, and maybe I shouldn t be so quick to compare it after having only read the first book of the series, but I thought even the first book of the Camel Club storyline was superbly written and meticulously plotted Though n...

    I bought it in India international trade fair at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi I wanted to read a new thriller writer and the salesman suggested this I am thankful to him.All it takes is a split second to ruin your career Maxwell and king of secret service has this is common Now both unite and try to redeem themselves will they b successful I enjoyed it thoroughly It is a page turner Kept me engrossed Highly recommended.Sean is very fastidious and judicious Michelle is very unorganised and spontaneous Though Sean is experienced and older but he is equally energetic They complement each other and form a good team of investigators The relationship is platonic though is wished it should be somewhat romantic The pace is breakneck and mystery is satisfying It gives very good thrill Climax explains everything and ties up loose ends.Some excerpts It only took a split second, although to Secret Service agent Sean King it seemed like the longest split second ever They were on the campaign trail at a nondescript hotel meet and greet in a place so far out you almost had to use a satellite phone to reach the boonies Standing behind his protectee, King scanned the crowd while his ear mike buzzed sporadically with unremarka...

    I have completely forgotten to review this book Read it this summer thought it was ok, nothing really special The two main character felt a bit boring to be honest it was nothing like reading about Patrick and Angie by Dennis Lehane Will perhaps read the rest of the series if I run out of bookslol

    Published and set in 2003 2004, the plot revolves around the assassination of one Presidential candidate eight years before the start of this book and the kidnapping of another one in the story s present day The main characters are the two Secret Service agents, Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, whose errors in judgment factored heavily into the aforementioned assassination and kidnapping Events conspire to bring King and Maxwell together to figure out how, or even if, the two events are related.As with most of the Baldacci books I ve read to date, the writing style is smooth and easy with a sure footed pacing that ensures a fast read King and Maxwell make for likable characters he s in his mid forties and has managed to rebuild his life after his career took a nose dive after he lost his protectee to an assassin s bullet She s in her early thirties and facing her first real failure at, well, anything once the candidate she was guarding gets snatched right out from under her nose It did ir...

    Split Second is a typical Baldacci first book in a series It has interesting characters and excellent writing but the plot is a bit weak I have seen this trend across his various books and this one is no exception.As always, the lead characters are extraordinary individuals secret agents in this case who have had to deal with a personal professional tragedy This time around, it is the loss of the VIPs they were supposed to protect.I loved the chemistry between the leads And the reversal of roles too The woman is the superior ass kicker while the...

    I loved this I had read other Baldacci books but none about Sean King and Michelle Maxwell but now I have to read them all Sean King is a former Secret Service agent whose split second lack of attention 8 years ago caused a tea party type presidential candidate to lose his life before there even was a tea party when a brilliant professor working at a third rate college he was a UC Berkeley PhD who had fallen from grace after his activism over the Vietnam War and Watergate stepped up and shot him while Sean was being flashed from an elevator by the female agent he was screwing someone sent her a phony request from Sean He now leads a quiet life after being dumped by the Service as a lawyer in a country town and has a nice home on the water The quiet erupts into pandemonium when another agent Michelle Maxwell loses another presidential candidate and is disgraced She shows up at Sean s door just as the dead bodies start arriving at his office and home Soon they, along with the flasher agent from years before, all realize that the two cases are linked and someone intends revenge on Sean and others so the three link up with a crooked US Marshal and this leads to an explosive conclusion literally.I enjoyed wa...
