Description

In a world of secrets, human genius is power.
And sometimes it is simply deadly . . .

Near Washington, D.C., there are two clandestine institutions: the world's most unusual laboratory and a secret CIA training camp. Drawn to these sites by a murder, ex-Secret Service agent Sean King encounters a dark world of mathematicians, codes, and spies. His search for answers soon leads him to more shocking violence-and an autistic girl with an extraordinary genius.

Now, only by working with his embattled partner, Michelle Maxwell, can he catch a killer...and solve a stunning mystery that threatens the entire nation.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 26, 2007 – Last seen in Split Second (2003), former Secret Service agents Sean King and Michelle Maxwell have reached a crisis in their relationship in this less than compelling Washington political thriller from bestseller Baldacci. When Maxwell instigates a fight with the most intimidating bruiser she could find at a local bar and lets herself be beaten unconscious, despite her superior fighting skills, her partner suggests she voluntarily commit herself to a psychiatric facility. While Maxwell reluctantly undergoes treatment to find the childhood roots of her death wish, King probes the suicide of a scientist found on the grounds of Virginia's Camp Peary, a mysterious CIA facility. Both mysteries are fairly run of the mill, lacking the sharp twists and expert pacing that characterize Baldacci's fiction at its best.

Great

From the first page this book was fantastic

Very exciting

Amazing how the author takes a complicated math and science concept to a wonderful story to give the reader an amazing appreciation of the math and science professionals. As the TV show CSI has sparked a renewed interest in math and science education in young people, I think this amazing story will also encourage children to pursue math and science studies .... After all, this story shows how intriguing and exhilarating math and science really is. The author is one of a few who can take complicated ideas and create a story that is exciting and non-technical so we can 'stay on the edge of our seat as we learn about mathematics impact on our lives'

Great read!

This series continues to get better. Last 200 pages were amazing. Couldn't put it down. Highly recommend it.
