Drawn to these sites by a murder, ex-Secret Service agent Sean King encounters a dark world of mathematicians, codes, and spies.

Review – Simple Genius by David Baldacci PDF
It doesn’t take Michelle long to get into trouble in this book. She walks into a bar and starts beating up the toughest guy she sees. She almost kills him. Then she lets him live and he almost kills her. Somebody calls the cops and they save her life – barely. She dies in the ambulance and again at the hospital but they manage to save her and she eventually recovers. Sean finally realizes she has mental issues. He spends all his money and the partnership’s money getting a shrink to fix her head. Simple Genius by David Baldacci PDF
Then to make back some money, he takes a dangerous job in which he has to investigate the CIA, FBI and DIA for murder in two camps on either side of the York River in Virginia. Yes, they can’t seem to get away from rural Virginia. Lots of nasty things happen there. On the “private” side of the River, spied on by the aforementioned Government organizations, there is a camp for the development of secret codes by a bunch of civilian geniuses. Sean’s assignment is to investigate the suspicious death of a genius who swam to the CIA side of the River where there is a secret camp into which a large jet carrying foreign spies flies in at 2 am once a week.
There is a lot of swimming and deep thinking. The guy who died had a cute little girl who is, herself, a genius. When Michelle joins him, she begins by helping Sean care for the little girl. She teaches the girl to kayak. More people at the genius camp start dying. Sean chases the lonely wife of the CIA chief who runs the CIA camp. Wait a minute! Maybe SHE IS the CIA chief. No one is who they say they are including the friendly county sherriff who invites Sean to work with him to investigate the murders. Simple Genius by David Baldacci PDF
There is a lot more swimming and shooting. Along the way we learn why Michelle has to keep her trucks and cars all messed up. Sean and Michelle are tortured by the CIA. It seems to cure Michelle of her Death wish.
Very good story!
