"Michelle Maxwell, a Secret Service agent assigned to a presidential candidate, sees her rising career slip away when the candidate is kidnapped. Eight years earlier, Agent Sean King was assigned to a candidate who was killed. With their professional lives similarly shattered, the two meet and uncover unlikely coincidences between the two events. Suspense mounts when a body appears in King's law office and when they are violently attacked. Scott Brick, a star among narrators, captures this smart and sophisticated work. Slight variations in his comfortably flat tone convey each character, with pace and emotion perfectly infused to enhance the mood of the mystery and the relationship between Michelle and Sean. F.L.F.
