Baker & Taylor
Summoned by First Lady Jane Cox to rescue her niece from kidnappers, investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are pushed to the limit in a search that is hampered by the highest levels of government security and Michelle's personal demons.

It began with what seemed like an ordinary children's birthday party. Friends and family gathered to celebrate. There were balloons and cake, games and gifts.
This party, however, was far from ordinary. It was held at Camp David, the presidential retreat. And it ended with a daring kidnapping . . . which immediately turned into a national security nightmare.
Sean King and Michelle Maxwell were not looking to become involved. As former Secret Service agents turned private investigators, they had no reason to be. The FBI doesn't want them interfering. But years ago, Sean King saved the First Lady's husband, then a senator, from political disaster. Now, Sean is the one person the First Lady trusts, and she presses Sean and Michelle into the desperate search to rescue the abducted child.
With Michelle still battling her own demons, and forces aligned on all sides against her and Sean, the two are pushed to the absolute limit. In the race to save an innocent victim, the line between friend and foe will become impossible to define . . . or defend.

I really enjoyed this book. All of his books that I have read are really good. This one had a great plot and lots of twists and turns. I could not wait to get back to the story every time I had to stop reading. All the characters are so interesting that you want to learn more about them.
Highly recommend this book and I am sure you will like the rest of the books he has written.

One of his best books. A plot that has many surprises. Couldn't put it down - action from page 1 to the end.

Read Oct. 2012...Really liked the story and the way it was written. I like John Grisham, and asked the librarian who she would recommend as similar authors...good recommendation. I will definately read more by this author.

This is the 4th installment in the King/Maxwell series.

The clock is ticking in this well-paced hunt for a missing child that keeps the reader glued to every page.

Once you start reading a Baldacci novel, it is very hard to put down. He is a master at weaving plots that keep the reader captivated by the quest.
