Simple Genius by David Baldacci July 13, 2009

Posted by Aubri in Action, Adventure, Must Read, Mystery, week 4.


I just finished reading Simple Genius by David Baldacci. The novel can be a little confusing at times, considering it’s actually an adult book and we’re not all quantum physics geniuses. But other than that Baldacci lives up to his name. Michelle Maxwell has become a little suicidal. After her last case she doesn’t  know who she can trust (other than Sean) and doesn’t believe she can trust her judgement anymore. After trying to get herself killed in a bar, she is placed in a facility for people struggling from a range of things. Her psychologist, Horatio Barnes, was hired by King to help her overcome her demons. So while Maxwell is in a facility for crazy people King is trying to solve a murder/suicide? case at legendary Babbage Town. But after a second murder and getting shot at from the CIA department across the river, King realizes this isn’t going to be some easy case. And what’s he going to do when his partner shows up, not completely cured?
An amazing novel, I seriously devoured most of it in one sitting. Baldacci’s writing should almost be mandatory for everyone to read, it’s so well written. Simple Genius is a thrilling, twisted novel like all the ones before it.
