Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The action is suspenseful and relentless. Newark Star-Ledger
Utterly absorbing...spins in unexpected directions...There are terrific action sequences throughout and plenty of suspense...texture and depth...A snappy surprise ending will have Baldacci's many fans remembering why they love this author so much. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
HOUR GAME has the elements of a classic Baldacci thriller. His characters keep getting better and richer and the plots-while always tight and well executed-are becoming more intricate and realistic...There is no question: David Baldacci will stay on the bestseller list for a long time to come. Richmond Times-Dispatch
The book's pace is near-gallop. Buffalo News
King and Maxwell are fictional treats, a fabulously entertaining team, and the action is hot and hard. New York Daily News
“A thrill a minute.” New York Daily News
“An exciting new thriller by a master of the game…The action never stops, and Baldacci’s trademark pacing keeps the reader turning pages until the denouement.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“Baldacci is back in form, and King and Maxwell reappear in this utterly absorbing, complex mystery-thriller that spins in unexpected directions…It’s Baldacci’s portrayal of smalltown Southern life, however, and his sharp characterizations of the Battles, from the bombastic Bobby and his regal widow to his weird extended family, that give the novel texture and depth: this is Baldacci’s most accomplished tale since his nonthriller Wish You Well, and it rivals that novel in its social commentary. Despite fair clues, few if any readers will ID the villain (villains?) before they’re revealed, and a snappy surprise ending will have Baldacci’s many fans remembering why they love this author so much.” Publishers Weekly
“Stage and film actor Brick, an Audie Award–winning veteran of more than 150 audio books, is clearly a pro at interpreting the printed word. And Baldacci’s exciting new thriller…gives him particularly powerful material to work with…The actor displays an assortment of Southern drawls, from the melodious, genteel tenor of a septuagenarian King-Maxwell client to the commanding Steel Magnolia tone of a powerful matriarch. Brick revs up the narrative pace after the jailbreak, making sure listeners will be paying full attention for the final surprise. It’s worth waiting for.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
“Scott Brick brings his considerable expertise to his reading of Baldacci’s latest crime novel…Soft accents contrast with the brutality of the crimes…The relationship between the partners is sensitively handled by BrickThis production is a fine example of writer and reader working in tandem.” AudioFile
“The plot…builds to an exciting finish.” Booklist
“Baldacci reaffirms his position at the top of the psychological thriller genre with this intriguing examination of a murderer’s psyche…Strongly recommended for most popular fiction collections.” Library Journal
