First Family by David Baldacci

First Family by David Baldacci

In this offering by the master of the government thrillers, comes First Family, a top-notch suspenseful novel involving President Dan Cox and his no-holds barred First Lady Jane. From the first page, we find Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, former Secret Service Agents and now P.I's, are hired by the First Lady to find who kidnapped her brother's twelve year old daughter.

WShat is so odd is there is no ransom demands, so this is a much different kidnapping than the norm. The man who has masterminded this kidnapping, makes a big mistake when a major character is killed. And, to throw things off, to cover their tracks, they leave a disturbing piece of evidence on the dead body. The ramifications are far-reaching for some people.

While working on this case, Michelle is devastated by a death in her family and comes to find murder most foul, so she and Sean are seeking answers to her father's suscpicious behavior, believing him a suspect.

When Sean and Michelle find strange markings on the walls of an old house in Alabama, things start coming together with the reasons for why Willa was kidnapped, including a woman who is being held along with her who seems connected to Dan Cox's past, along with Sam Quarry and his sons and daughter Tippi, who's on life support and has been for years. Sean and Michelle have to race to reach Willa before it's too late. This is one of David's best and I really love his Sean & Michelle books.
