About Sean King & Michelle Maxwell:

Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are complicated people. Both of them started as government employees who failed important missions and lost everything in the process. Michelle Maxwell was a former Secret Service agent, her mission? To protect a politician from harm. Her failure? He was kidnapped while in her protective custody. It wasn’t entirely her fault, she should have been more professional about watching him at all times, but he disappeared behind a door to quickly speak with a grieving widow. Next thing you know he is gone; out of sight without a moment’s notice.

Sean King, on the other hand, failed equally albeit differently. Also a Secret Service employee of the government, he was hired with the task of protecting a presidential candidate from harm and, when his attention was compromised for a split second, he lost the man. A presidential candidate is now dead, and Sean King is the target of all of the blame. Like his soon to be partner, Michelle Maxwell, he lost his job and basically his entire career over this simple mishap.

The two of them meet when Michelle Maxwell gains a sudden interest in a case that Sean King happens to be working on. The meeting becomes a rather serendipitous one as Sean King truly needs someone to help him on a case that might have him as the target of the crime. Together they make a great team with a little bit of romantic tension and a whole lot of similar cause, this is what makes Michelle Maxwell and Sean King an exciting duo of crime fighting to watch and read about.
