Product description

Amazon.co.uk Review

In Hour Game David Baldacci finally gets around to writing a serial killer plot--and his approach to that hoary old cliché is as inventive and ingenious as one would expect. His is not the first serial killer to perform his various atrocities in quotation marks and in the style of killers dead and gone, but Baldacci's does so with considerable ingenuity and for well-plotted reasons that are not mere games-playing. He also does so in a small community which a small epidemic of sudden horrible death tears apart--Baldacci is a small 'c' conservative for whom the nightmare of crime is the way that it affronts community and family, and in this, as in other books, he makes a not unappealing case for his value system. As with the equally ingenious Split Second, his investigators here are ex-Secret Service protection squad Michelle and Sean, now working together as private eyes on a case at first peripheral to the killings--clearing the name of a handyman accus! ed of burglary. When their client and his alleged victim join the death list, it all gets very personal. Baldacci is always crisp and clever and this lives up to his usual standards.--Roz Kaveney

This story could have been told in half the words and would have been that much better for it. That said, the story is rather weak and you seriously need to be willing to suspend any grip on reality to reach the end.

I like King and Maxwell as characters - they deserve better than this dross. 10 books in and Baldacci has lost the plot - seemingly along with his editor.

My advice.... Don't bother!
