And the HOUR GAME has just begun...

Two ex-Secret Service agents, Sean King a ...more
The book is awful. It's so bad it may be the most humorous novel I've read this year. It's like a parody of a someone writing a bestselling novel. Someone at Mr. Baldacci's publisher needs to hire a first rate copy editor, because obviously, there is not one on the staff, This book is filled with sentences and paragraphs so incoherent it would have put my high school A ...more
The lead characters are great as is their interactions. The murders are local; so we get to see a lot more of Wrightsburg. The plot is also much better since there is some kind of payoff in the end.
Overall, this is a nice time pass.
I enjoyed this edge-of-the-seat thriller.
When the small town of Wrightsburg is rocked by gruesome murders, both ex-secret service agents, Michelle Maxwell and Sean King, now private investigators (partners) are hot on the murderers tail. What sets the murderer apart is how he copies famous serial killers when he commits a crime.
The light banter between Michelle and Sean are the highlight of the book. Their bickering does bring comic relief to an otherwise intense thriller....more
I like how the story was fast paced and there was no dull chapter and I love how the characters simply evolved and how my brain gets to think on who will be killed next.
The intensity of the book from the first chapter to the last has always been a 10! A perfect 10! David Baldacci has made a new turn on how murders are done. The book is intricately written to include all clues ...more
Another great book -- I definitely love this serie ...more
I figured he was not an author for me. Then came the dreaded moment: bedtime with nothing to read! Damn. I usually have a stack ready to go—but not this time. While desperately searching, I came across a box of books left by a friend who moved. Double Damn. The books were all either Romance or Political Thri ...more
Would recommend to… nobody. It was dreadful. It made the boring stuff I had to do even more boring.
As I have said in one of my updates already, this book wouldn't have made it past the DNF line if it weren't for the fact that I listened to it as an audiobook while doing really blunt tasks at work. It seems ironic to mee that especially crime novels and thrillers have a hard job exciting me, given suspense is their major tool to catch the reader' ...more
King & Michelle from Charottlesville, work on killings in Wrightsburg. The plot link to murderer is easy. The book's link to the "Hour game" title is good. Wrist Watch "stems" are pulled out stopping at a hour 1:00, 2:00, etc. hence set to the "hour" are placed on bodies/victims.
"Zodiac" Letters/Symbols & Zodiac Wrist Watches set at a hour?
Murders point to a Battle family. A good character, Dr. Sylvia Diaz, dept. med. examiner had an affair from her husband, Steve Diaz, with a ...more
Overall, because the story was interesting, kept me guessing throughout and was generally well written, I liked the read.
Another enjoyable read. Been listening to it on audio through Hoopla and I do enjoy the narrator. Lots of twists and uncovering the reason behind the murders was interesting. Each puzzle piece fit together well and I was surprised with the outcome.
The murders were much more violent in this one than the previous installment, but I think I did enjoy this mystery just a touch more than the first one. I do enjoy seeing how King and Maxwell work together as ...more
the book has its share of thrills, actions, blood drives and wits and humour filled through the pages.
I liked how david baldacci had kept it light for the readers to keep the track and yet the twists and turns blows your mind completely
true page turner
Baldacci can spin a tale and Hour Game is no different. There are multiple stories here that do eventually come full circle. While I did guess some of the plot points it would be near impossible to guess them all, not that I'm going to stop trying with the following books in this great series. ...more
Make no mistake, The Hour Game is, by high standards, a paint by numbers book. From the way I see it, it has a great heart. I ...more
Following their collaboration in the previous novel "Split Second", former Secret Service agents Sean KIng and Michelle Maxwell have gone into partnership and set up a private investigation firm in the small but wealthy town of Wrightsburg, Virginia.
As they begin investigating a theft at the mansion of a very wealthy family, a serial kille ...more
My one complaint is the lack of development of King and Maxwell, the protagonists. Sometimes I feel like in a effort the keep things a mystery we miss out on impor ...more
