Publisher's Summary

Following their collaboration in Split Second, ex-Secret Service agents Sean King and Michelle Maxwell have gone into partnership and are investigating the robbery of some secret documents at the residence of the incredibly wealthy Battle family.

Meanwhile, a spate of serial killings begins to terrorise the neighbourhood. The murderer kills in the manner of famous killers of the past but takes care to leave a stopped watch at each crime scene, either on the hour, or one tick off. Why? As the killing spree escalates, it seems that the Battle family are somehow involved.

Bad narrator

Really struggled with the narrator. The story itself was great though! I would not listen to that narrator again.

Abridged version.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Amos Decker series by David Baldacci. After listening to Split Second, the first book in the King and Maxwell series, I decided that I'd enjoy this series too. Unfortunately, all that was available for Book 2 (Hour Game) was an abridged version. Not wanting to 'lose the thread' of the series, I bought this version. Many business and self-help books would probably benefit from removal of substantial parts of the script; however, that is not the case with this genre.

I'm about to read Book 3 - the full version. If, having listened to this abridged version 'helps' with that listen, then I'll have a real quandary - Book 4 is an abridged version too.

short but worth it

well the headline says it all. good crafted story, plot excellent, and good to see sean and maxwell at the start of their relationship. the narrator sounded oddly english. not unpleasant but unexpected, so it was worth using a credit.

Poor by Baldacci standards

Could not get enthused by this, poor by his normal standards. His later works are far better to listen to.
