Split Second - David Baldacci Eight years apart one presidential candidate is murdered and another is kidnapped. Both had been protected by the secret service. The agents protecting them had their lives turned upside down with their inability to protect. Other than that how were they connected?I found the book to be very fast paced and action packed. I had fun with the characters and the situations they got into. I liked that most of the problems the characters had were not because they were stupid and blundered into something that could have easily been avoided.I did find the motive behind the crimes a little convoluted. The killing of the first candidate I could buy as being the result of a warped personality, but then he continued with the kidnapping and the reason behind that just felt a little like grasping straws. There were enough twists and turns for the story to be fun enough that it almost didn't matter the overall motive was far fetched.
