Summary

When something distracts Secret Service agent Sean King for a split second, it costs him his career - and presidential candidate Clyde Ritter his life. What stole his attention? Why was Ritter shot? Where were the other detail leaders? Eight years later, Michelle Maxwell is on the fast track through the ranks of the Secret Service when her career receives a lethal blow: 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, a hard-biting, widely respected agent, is playing curious games. She wants Sean back and resents his growing relationship with Michelle, but she also owes him for something.

I only wish this was the full version

DB's books are great. I have most of them on my library. Split second was the first Audiobook I purchased from Audible. The Unabridged books are fantastic and regrettably make the shortened hard to listen to as they have a tenancy to be disjointed don't flow well. However if you are new to DB it is a good place to start. King and Maxwell are great characters. Go for it 😊
