The killer, replicating notorious murders of the past, seeks to improve them, while taunting the police by leaving watches on the victims set to the hour corresponding with their position on his hit list.

King and Maxwell must discover their identities before the body count increases even more.… (more)

Another Maxwell & King story about the Detective agency duo solving a murder mystery with a serial killer style killer and others imitating him. This one was a little too long in my opinion and dragged in parts, but the twists and unpredictable turns were up to usual Baldacci excellence. ( )

A woman is found murdered in the woods. It seems like a simple case but it soon escalates into a terrible nightmare. Someone is replicating the killing styles of the most infamous murderers of all time. No one knows this criminal's motives...or who will die next.

Two ex-Secret Service agents, Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, have been hired to defend a man's innocence in a burglary involving an aristocratic family. Then a series of secrets leads the partners right into the frantic hunt that is confounding even the FBI. Now King and Maxwell are playing the Hour Game, uncovering one horrifying revelation after another and putting their lives in danger. For the closer they get to the truth, the closer they get to the most shocking surprise of all.

3.5 stars. A little too many characters and twists in this one, I think. ( )
