In the #1 New York Times bestselling thriller that inspired the TV series King & Maxwell, two private investigators dig into a killer's past--but when their search threatens powerful enemies, it could cost them their lives.

Edgar Roy--an alleged serial killer--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 when Sean and Michelle find Bergin murdered.

It is now up to them to ask the questions no one seems to want answered: Is Roy a killer? Who murdered Bergin? 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.

McLarty's female dialogue sounds like a dwarf on helium

The Sixth Man This is the first book that I have listened to from David Baldacci, and I was not disappointed. I found that the book moves along very nicely. It was good character development, and plenty of action, and even some unexpected twists at the end.

I was intrigued during the whole book. I absolutely love having these two narrators. They work well together.

This fast paced mystery, action, suspense, taking sides and grasping your attention until the very end, with a twist. You really don't know WHO DONIT. This read is not easy to analyze and the conclusion you reach before the end - will not be true.

I am a fan of all Baldacci books. King and Maxwell are two of my favorite characters. This book did not disappoint.

Returned it after the first disc; stilted and forced. Surprisingly poor writing.

If you are a Baldacci fan - this is a good one! Maxwell and his side kick Michelle do not disappoint!

A very promising plot compromised by lazy sloppy writing and plot development. The dialog between the characters was childish.

I enjoyed the story and the twists and turns. However, the audio recording was a bit odd. It has a male and female reader doing the male and female voices. The female reader thought the female characters all had to have southern accents, which was a bit tedious. There are also audio effects - gunshots, car crash noises, etc. I was listening to the book in my car and about swerved off the road at one point thinking I'd hit something. I had a good bit of the intrigue figured out, but I must admit I was surprised at the end.

This is my third David Baldacci book and if was great. Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy did the narration and I liked have a male and female narrators. This book has lots of twists and turns as Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, x-secret service now working as P.I.'s for attorney Ted Bergen who is defending Edgar Roy and E-6 at a CIA contractor who is accused of killing 6 people. The story winds behind FBI, CIA, Homeland Security, 2 different state and local police and a killer going after attorneys and police. Lots of suspense and nailbiting twist and turns in the story. You will enjoy.

A real page turner. Like most Baldacci books, there is a bit of info-documentary regarding the agencies involved, but it is a nice balance...makes traffic jams OK!
