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.

    "Masterful Story Line"

    In Sixth Man, Baldacci hit his stride early on and maintained it to the very end. Great story line and presented extremely well.

    "Great!"

    Great book. Interesting idea behind the story. It had been a while since I had read anything other than Camel Club books of his. It was nice to get back to these characters.

    "Go for it"

    Yeah, it's here again - single person (well in this case, there were 2 people), fighting against FBI and other gov agencies to uncover the truth. And yet, it's very compelling story and it's hard to stop the MP3 player.
    It's a MUST for Baldacci's fans.

    "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.

    "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.
