Split Second Summary

Split Second by David Baldacci

`He was the only one in the room who could see it. His attention stayed there for one beat, two beats, three beats, far too long. Yet who could blame him for not being able to pull his gaze away from that?'

When something distracts Secret Agent, Sean King, for a split second, it costs him his career and presidential candidate, Clyde Ritter, his life. But what stole his attention? And why was Ritter shot?

Eight years later, Michelle Maxwell, is on the fast track through the ranks of the Secret Service when her career is stopped short: presidential candidate, John Bruno, is abducted from a funeral home while under her protection.

The similarity between the two cases drives Michelle to re-open investigations into the Ritter fiasco and join forces with attractive ex-agent, King. The pair are determined to get to the bottom of what happened in those critical moments.

Meanwhile, high-ranking members of the legal system and key witnesses from both cases are going missing. King is losing friends, colleagues and clients fast and his ex-lover, Joan Dillinger, is playing curious games - she wants Sean back, but she also owes him for something . . .

Split Second Reviews

An explosive new thriller by the author of Last Man Standing. Secret agent Sean King loses his career because for a split second his attention is diverted and presidential candidate Clyde Ritter is shot dead. Eight years later, Michelle Maxwell of the secret service is tricked into letting her presidential candidate, John Bruno, be abducted from a funeral home. Her career is also now over. King now has a successful new business of his own, but he is suspected of killing an employee - his gun fired the fatal shot. Michelle and King get together to try and find out what happened and why. Meanwhile key witnesses from the cases disappear, and King's ex-lover, Joan Dillinger, also an agent, is behaving in a very curious way. It's fast-moving, exciting and keeps one in suspense right until the end with its wonderful climax.
