Publisher's Summary

Edgar Roy - an alleged serial killer held in a secure, fortress-like Federal Supermax facility-is awaiting trial. He faces almost certain conviction. Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called in by Roy's attorney, Sean's old friend and mentor Ted Bergin, to help work the case. But their investigation is derailed before it begins-en route to their first meeting with Bergin, Sean and Michelle find him murdered.

It is now up to them to ask the questions no one seems to want answered: Is Roy a killer? Who murdered Bergin? With help from some surprising allies, they continue to pursue the case. But the more they dig into Roy's past, the more they encounter obstacles, half-truths, dead-ends, false friends, and escalating threats from every direction. Their persistence puts them on a collision course with the highest levels of the government and the darkest corners of power. In a terrifying confrontation that will push Sean and Michelle to their limits, the duo may be permanently parted.

    "Kept me wanting to listen for what was next..."

    This was great. Moved fast with lots of interesting characters. The plot was thick enough to make me pay attention. Performance was good, engaging.

    I am an entertainer...so I spend a lot of time on the road. I take my audio seriously. I appreciate great writing and outstanding narration.

    "My last Baldacci book...I give up..."

    Despite a promising start to this series, the books have been getting sillier and sillier and the characters moving into sloppy cartoon versions of themselves. Nothing is believable...the plotting is convoluted. The whole thing smacks of contractual obligation.

    Baldacci has been going steadily downhill. He crashes with the Sixth Man.

    "Can't Finish Because of Narration"

    I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing this one. I have no idea if it's a good story or not. I can't stand the male/female narration thing. I want to listen to a book being read, not a play being acted out by actors. Would the publisher PLEASE re-release this audible book with a single narrator reading the book?

    "Confused"

    I have thoroughly enjoyed Baldacci's previous books with Sean and Michelle, but this one has me very confused. Over the first 4 books the title characters became more connected and seemed to be a couple, but in The Sixth Man they are almost like strangers. The chemistry in the previous novels is non-existent. Cassidy's narration is also a bit annoying. There is an odd "southern" accent to her Michelle character, but I never got the impression that Michelle was from the South.

    "A bad production"

    Please, Please, don't do modern things with the narration of books.
    Keep it simple with ONE good reader, and DON'T use several readers...
    'He heard a woman speaking behind him'... And then we hear a woman. totally
    out of character, and place,,
    Just manage to hear one hour of this.. maybe the book is good, but the production is BAD..
