Since I discovered David Baldacci, I have read his stories with enjoyment. This yarn was no different, encouraging me to turn page after page with my eyes riveted by the words.
The title, Hour Game , suggests a game and the story encompasses just that – a game that has been created by a serial killer. The game begins with a murdered woman in the woods, killed in the style of an infamous murderer. The next victim is killed in a different style, thus making it difficult for the investigators to determine the killer’s motives. Among the investigators are two characters that readers have been introduced to in previous novels: Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, two ex-Secret Service agents. I love that we learn more about these characters in this story and am always excited to see a novel with them in it.
I enjoyed this fast-paced thriller. Baldacci kept me guessing as to who was committing murder. Some of my guesses were incorrect as unexpected incidents made me second-guess myself. This novel is definitely well worth the read and I recommend it if you enjoy thrillers that you can finish over a few days.
Have you read any of David Baldacci’s novels?
