Product Description

Review

"Authentic scenario, mystery piled on misdirection, and more double-crosses than a tic-tac-toe tournament."―Kirkus Reviews on The Sixth Man

"A complex puzzle . . . Baldacci is a master craftsman."―Associated Press on The Sixth Man

"Equal parts Hitchcock and James Bond, it's the perfect literary cocktail...One of Baldacci's best."―Richmond Times-Dispatch on Deliver Us from Evil

"It's his eager, expansive imagination that drives his books . . . Like other thriller writers, Baldacci depends on a mixture of inventive plotting, appealing characters, luck, and consistency. Unlike others, his books rely more on characters' relationships than whiz-bang technology or procedural twists . . . What he offers is in some ways more unusual."―Newsweek on First Family

"A rousing success . . . Baldacci shows once again that he is a sort of thriller Renaissance man: a master of plot, dialogue, and character."―Booklist (starred review) for Divine Justice

"High-stakes action, shadowy government agencies, and [a] neo-Cold War backdrop . . . Baldacci pushes his plot ahead at such a blistering pace."―Washington Post on The Whole Truth

"Gripping, chilling, and full of surprises."―Publishers Weekly on Stone Cold

Format: Hardcover
"Defend the poor and fatherless;
Do justice to the afflicted and needy." -- Psalm 82:3 (NKJV)

In The Sixth Man, Sean King and Michelle Maxwell return in the role of private investigators, this time assisting in preparing the criminal defense of an accused serial killer who is thought to be insane. On their way to start work, the two are shocked to find their client's attorney has been killed. Something's not right, and they decide to stay on the case . . . heavily relying on Sean King also being an active member of the bar in Virginia.

As their investigation unfolds, more violence follows and they find powerful forces are arrayed against them. There are also government and personal secrets at stake that others want protected. How can they hope to help? Well, it won't be easy.

As in many David Baldacci stories, the center of this one is about how those close to and in the government look out for their own interests rather than the public good. A few well-meaning people are all that might stop some terrible result. I won't say much more, but the plot relates to how best to employ information developed by the intelligence community. If the suggestions for what should be done fascinate you, this will probably be a four-star book. I personally didn't find that aspect to be credible, much less interesting, so the book's action plot is pretty average.

Many might look to a developing relationship between Sean King and Michelle Maxwell as another possible plus for the book. The story isn't written that way, so some will be disappointed on this front.

One of the oddest things about the plot was that so much of the action was placed in the middle of Maine. That meant describing many trips up and down the East Coast where frankly not much happens.

The `Sixth Man ' by David Baldacci was a disappointment for me. The plot had promise, you have a genius /alleged serial killer awaiting trial, dead bodies everywhere, shadowy corrupt politicians doing what shadowy corrupt politicians do and two of Baldacci's reoccurring characters, investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell. Even with these plot elements and Baldacci's writing skills the novel was still a dud. There was no fire in this novel; the lights were on but nobody was home. The novel was slow, predictable; a five year old could have figured it out. There were no surprises in this book and it isn't up to Baldacci's usual standards, by the time it started to pick up in the last few chapters it was too little too late for the `Sixth Man'.

When I came here to write my review, I was surprised to see other reviews that were just "so-so". Perhaps it's because this is my first Baldacci book, and I'm coming from Robert J. Sawyer and John Sandford, which are OK. I found Baldacci's writing much more rich and entertaining. Maybe it's in contrast with the previous books I'd read, but I found The Sixth Man to be a great intriguing story. I only read a bit at a time but every day I was looking forward to reading a few more chapters. It kept me engrossed from beginning to end. I'm certainly looking forward to reading Baldacci's other books.

Bottom line, I guess if you've read other Baldacci books, other reviewer's comments seem to indicate perhaps this is not his best one. As for me, I truly enjoyed this book.

It is always amazing how Baldacci weaves things together and keeps you in suspense right to the bitter end and the surprise.

Anyone can write a mystery. Not many can keep you engrossed from beginning to end and with a variety of interesting twists
