Beginning of the King and Michelle series

Split Second  - David Baldacci

King as a disgraced Secret Service agent when his protectee got assassinated. 


8 years later. Michelle is a disgraced Secret Service agent when her protectee got kidnapped. 


So what going on and who is behind the assassination and kidnapping? 


King is a lawyer now. But he still not feeling good about himself because of his failed mission. 


Michelle is a bit clueless on who and why his protectee got kidnapped. The only connection is the both of hers and King's protectees are running for office with not a really good chance to win.


The story itself is interesting. The plots is a bit out there. The building up of tension and characters development is pretty good. it is an older book but the skills of the writer well developed. 


The interaction between King and Jane, his old lover, and Kate the daughter of the assassin is pretty strange, yet intriguing. 


Going to continue reading this series. Hope the rest of the books are just as good.
