Author(s): David Baldacci
The new Baldacci reintroduces the main characters from "Split Second and Hour Game" - the novel that took Baldacci to another level in paperback in the UK. Sean King and Michelle Maxwell both bear the scars of their previous case. Michelle is in a psychiatric hospital after making a suicide attempt while Sean, down on his luck and desperately worried about his friend, accepts a PI job at Babbage Town - a hugely secret establishment where, it seems, corpses turn up more quickly than new codes can be encrypted by the genius mathematicians who are employed in the place...While Michelle's psychiatrist determines the key to her deep depression lies in events suppressed during her childhood, Michelle uncovers something truly disturbing happening in the hospital pharmacy...And with both the FBI and CIA making their presence felt in Babbage Town, Sean begins to wonder what really goes on there. But there is a place even more sinister close by, Camp Peary, where it is said CIA death squads train...
