It’s been years since I’ve read a novel by David Baldacci. He was one of my go-to suspense authors so when I saw his new novel, King and Maxwell, available as an ARC I jumped on it. Unfortunately, I did not like this newest Baldacci. It was simplistic and unconvincing with choppy dialogue. One scene has a character talking with his father-in-law. The father-in-law tells the son-in-law how he had met the character’s father in a way that one would at a first time meeting, not a reminiscing between two people who have been a part of each other’s lives for many years.
King and Maxwell is the sixth book in series. The earlier books may have been better but I don’t know. Maybe one day, when I have nothing else to read, I will read the first book in the series…
