    1. An incredible fast paced book. A real page turner. In this book National Security is threatened by a mind like no other. It is the mind of an elledged cereal killer held in a maximum security prison for the criminally insane in Mane. There are many twists and turns and it keeps you on your toes trying to figure out who the actual culprit is. I highly recommend this novel to all. Enjoy and Be Blessed. Diamond


    2. Pretty bad.I was on vacation and forgot to bring a book so went to the hotel's lending library. Of those that were not romance and for people younger than 13, this was the best I could find. The dialogue is very stiff, confusing, feels like it was started and stopped at various times and was agreed upon by a group of people instead of one. The team behind this book doesn't seem to have a clear idea of what the Department of Homeland Security does, which is unfortunate given the subject matter, a [...]


    3. A funny thing happened to me with this book. Immediately after I read it, I was trying to fall asleep by watching something boring on TV and on came this show called "King & Maxwell." As I drifted towards sleep, something kept tugging me back. The TV show, now a new "series," was using the plot line of the "Sixth Man" as the basis for the opening show in the series. Of course I perked up a little. It's always interesting to see how television directors and writers treat an original authors w [...]


    4. Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called to do a job by Sean's old friend and mentor Ted Bergin, the attorney for Edgar Roy. Roy is an alleged serial killer held in a secure, fortress-like Federal Supermax facility in Maine. Roy is awaiting trial and almost certainly faces conviction. On their to the first meeting with their employer, Bergin, they find him murdered on a lonely stretch of Maine road.Baldacci's novel then follows the usual predictable events for this type of novel, so I can't say [...]


    5. The Sixth Man by David BaldacciKing & Maxwell Series Book #54.5 StarsFrom The Book: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. It is now up to them to ask the questions no one seems to want answered: With help [...]


    6. Started slow but Baldacci speeds up the action later in the story. One of the "false agents" was transparent from almost the start and one was more surprising. I found the bad guys a little too evil to be believed. Only 3 Stars for this one. Good beach reading--read on the beach at Puerto Vallarta and donated to the resort lending library.


    7. Fast paced, but Baldacci seems to follow the same formula in many of his suspense series to the point that the male/female lead characters almost seem interchangeable. At least for me, the formula has become a bit boring.


    8. The Sixth Man, the fifth book in the King and Mawell series by David Baldacci, opens with Sean and Michelle travelling to Maine to work with Sean’s law professor and friend, Ted Bergin. On the several hour drive from the airport to the remote town where they will be staying, they come across a car alongside a deserted stretch of highway. Inside, is Ted Bergin with a bullet in his brain. Sean believes this to be murder and an attempt to stop the defense of Edgar Roy.Edgar Roy is an off-the-char [...]


    9. Another good edition to the series. Nice plot, interesting storyI wish they'd just settle their "personal issues" already. So, anyway we are again hanging out with Sean and Michelle. Things again get very stickyd it also involves another of Sean's friends (view spoiler)[ well ex-friend I suppose as he's pretty much DEAD as things get started (hide spoiler)].I have a couple more things to say under a spoiler warning (and don't read it if you don't want a spoileris really is sort of a spoiler). He [...]


    10. This is the second novel in the King & Maxwell series I have read. Baldacci is a very imaginative, well researched and creative author. It was interesting page turner as there was suspense, murder, power and politics. It was a brilliant idea to write about E-Program (in name of national security) is pure fantasy. Though modern technology has given more power to government or anyone having access to such technology to spy on unsuspecting people is really a very disturbing to peoples privacy. [...]


    11. Still to this day I've never read a book by David Baldacci that I didn't like, and some I like more than others, but The Sixth Man was right up there!Private Investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called in by an old friend of Sean's, Defense Attorney Ted Bergin, to help uncover a deep mystery involving alleged Serial Killer Edgar Roy, a man convicted of a crime involving National Security, and who is believed by the majority of people, to be guilty. But on their way to meet with Roy, [...]


    12. Edgar Roy has been arrested for mass murder and placed in a high tech prison where he hasn't spoken or acknowledged anyone or anything. His lawyer, Ted Bergin, hires Sean King and Michelle Maxwell to do some investigation so he can properly represent Edgar. They discover that Edgar Roy has an amazing memory. Not only can he remember everything in his life, he can put together various scenarios and come up with comprehensive plans to deal with them. The government wants to use him to prevent even [...]


    13. The Sixth Man by David Baldacci is part of the Sean King and Michelle Maxwell series. The duo are called in by the attorney of a serial killer to help in his defense but are soon drawn into an escalating situation of multiple murders and a vast intrigue within the U. S. government. The action is intense with multiple twists and turns. Hold on for a great ride!


    14. What can I say about a novel by a guy whose last name ends in a vowel like mine? What do you think? I wonder does he come from the old country like I do, I mean Trenton, N.J. I really don’t know; I haven’t had the pleasure and privilege of interviewing one of my favorite authors on this planet. I have read and consumed every word that the man has written that I can get my hands on. Here in The 6th Man I thought, hey, he is taking Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, one of my favorite tandems in [...]


    15. David Baldacci’s The Sixth Man, his fifth book in the Sean King - Michelle Maxwell series is a predictable thriller with obvious bad guys and an unsurprising ending.King and Maxwell are former Secret service agents who have become private investigators. They are in Maine to meet up with Ted Bergin, a law school professor and friend of King, who is defending Edgar Roy, allegedly a serial killer. Before King and Maxwell can even talk to Bergin, he is murdered. King and Maxwell decide to take up [...]


    16. Oh what fun!My third (or fourth?) Baldacci attempt and hands down the most thrilling thriller I've read in quite some time. This is a returning character serial, not a continuation of an earlier story. It is perfectly fine to read this as a standalone although it's likely more rewarding to know the history of Sean and Michelle. I was unaware of them or that this was a series of any type and still enjoyed every inch of this novel. It's everything you associate with a Baldacci novel: power, concei [...]


    17. Finished this book and as always a great and twisty ending for our two heroes Sean and Michelle. Elements of good story telling and structure are always present in Baldacci's work and his style is very polished. Intrigue on on federal level, lots of bad guys doing dirty deeds, it's a great ride for Baldacci fans. _________________________________________________________________________________________Started TSM yest. and I look forward to another finely crafted novel by the master of thriller e [...]


    18. My first Baldacci book. Was slow-paced and I kinda lost interest half-way through. But last few chapters were nice and the twist in the end was well thought of. That ending is actually what made me give the book four stars instead of three. The dialogues, though, were the weakest I have read in any fiction work recently. Everyone talked alike. There was no difference in lingual patterns. Characterization was weak too. I understand that the leads are series-long, but other characters were pretty [...]


    19. I can always count on David Baldacci to provide a good solid page-turning thriller and this novel is no exception. In fact, this 5th book in the King and Maxwell series was perhaps even a shade better than the previous books in the series. Once again, Baldacci has come up with a really cool situation and an intriguing, unique, character. Edgar Roy is the 6th man, a person whose brain is so far advanced that he can literally never forget anything. No fact or number that he ever encounters is forg [...]


    20. Wow! What a page turner!! Baldacci does a great job with building suspense and mystery in this installment of his Maxwell and King Series. Everyone whom I thought was the bad guy ended up dead. And the last twist of the book really dropped my jaw! This novel is truly a 5 Star read - the characters are well developed and seem very real, the story line is fantastic, the suspense level is off the charts. Edgar Roy is an alleged serial killer and is in a Federal Maximum Facility for the Criminally I [...]


    21. This book sounded interesting from the jacket, but as usual what is inside is not nearly as exciting as the outside lead me to believe. This is a typical one event leads to another and one person leads to another type of book. Everything progresses in a logical manner with nothing shocking or amazing happening at all. The bad guys are stereotypical power hungry politicians, the good guys aren't really that smart, and the genius guy in jail isn't that impressive. The idea that there is a big scre [...]


    22. This was one of the most exciting books I've read in a while. I really enjoy these two main characters. They seem like real people with a good relationship. I really enjoy their conraderie in the midst of all their action-packed lives. The ideas in this book about the workings of government, and the need for a "super thinker" to make decisions for our country were fascinating to me, as well as alarming. The more I read and study, the less I trust government, BIG government. It has grown too unwi [...]


    23. 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? [...]


    24. The Sixth Man by David BaldacciSean King and Michelle Maxwell return in a novel focused on national security and inter-agency rivalry. This book is disturbing on so many levels. It points out our nation’s vulnerability when those protecting it are more concerned with protecting their own turf than protecting the nation. The current fiscal cliff debacle points out the power of politics over sanity. Baldacci’s story shows the ludicrous rivalry between intelligence gathering agencies. The premi [...]


    25. This is my First Title by David Baldacci,he is a master of suspense. this book is summed up in, "The only thing potentially worse than not being able to see the forest for the trees is not being able to see the trees because of the forest." these two have there destiny inter-twined,an ecosystem that protects each other-the individual being very much a significant part of the wholeThe individual tree(s) adds up to form a forest ,just as the forest breathes the very life of every single tree.we sh [...]


    26. I love David Baldacci and this one book is one of his finest works as per the critiques and reviews but for me, I have read much better mystery by him though the style and the story telling was just his classic style. The build up was amazing and it was kind of fast paced with great characters along the roll, through out the book I saw Edgar Roy as Sheldon Cooper only less annoying and more of a genius. I enjoyed the novel but I was able to unravel the whole plot by myself and read through whole [...]


    27. Great story, combined with great narration by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy, made for an amazing listening experience! Just when I thought I had figured the whole thing out, a new twist developed and kept me guessing right up until the end! I'm a fan of a big bang at the end of a story and this one did not fail to impress. I would love more stories featuring Sean King and Michelle Maxwell--they are a great team! 8 out of 10 for me.


    28. One of the best espionage novels I've read. Not a slowly unfolding novel that has 2/3rds of the book mired in tedious detail; although they sometimes have extremely satisfying endings. The Sixth Man is fast-paced from the get go with no lagging narrativeever. I am not being dramatic when I say I cannot wait to read Baldacci's entire body of work. Supremely entertaining!


    29. mi primer libro de este autor y si este libro es como todo lo que ha escrito, posiblemente sea otro de mis autores favoritos.Me encantaron los personajes. Michelle y Sean los volveré a encontrar en otros libros, porque me enteré que tienen varios más <3 jeje


    30. For some reason I found this really difficult to get into. I didn't find the characters that likeable (apart from Edgar Roy) & nothing in the plot gripped me enough to not want to put the book down.The narrative didn't seem to flow well for me & ultimately, I was disappointed
