'It's too dangerous.' 'So are most things in life worth dying for.' He glanced across the river. 'Something bad is going on over there. And I need to find out what it is. And I need to stop it.'
Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are both haunted by their last case. Realising that Michelle is teetering on the brink of self-destruction from long-buried demons, Sean arranges therapy for his reluctant partner. But instead of focusing on her recovery, Michelle unearths disturbing secrets in the hospital...
Sean, down on his luck, accepts a much needed job. A physicist, Monk Turing, has died in mysterious circumstances near Babbage Town - a secretive establishment populated by an eccentric group of scientists and cryptographers, funded by an anonymous but powerful group.
Meanwhile, the dead man's young daughter, piano-playing prodigy Viggie, has secrets of her own. But what is the significance of the phrase 'codes and blood'?
Directly across the York River from Babbage Town lies the sinister CIA training ground, Camp Peary, where Monk Turing's body was found. With both the FBI and CIA having Sean in their crosshairs, can he discover the truth? And will he be in time to save Michelle from herself?
David Baldacci's compulsive thriller reintroduces Sean King and Michelle Maxwell from 'Split Second' and 'Hour Game' - in the toughest case of their lives, which will test them to their absolute limits...
Loved loved LOVED this book - I can't stress enough how good this was. David Baldacci really is a king of suspense/crime thriller and this book is no exception. I did find the characters hard to relate to, but it really didn't reduce my enjoyment at all.
Totally truly recommend that you read this book!
Random listing from 'Books'...
A beautifully designed book, celebrating the power of the imagination to transform even the most ordinary of objects into something magical. A stick is just a stick! Unless it's not a stick. From fishing rod to dragon-taming sword, a small pig shows that a stick will go as far as the imagination allows. Antoinette Portis captures the thrill of when pretend feels so real that it actually becomes reality. Her simple, spare text and illustrations show that seeing truly depends on the ability to believe in the possibilities.
