The fifth book in the heart-stopping King and Maxwell series, The Sixth Man by David Baldacci will keep pulses racing as Sean King and Michelle Maxwell face their next great challenge.
A dangerous asset, the analyst.
The government’s uniquely talented, top-tier intelligence analyst, Edgar Roy, is arrested for mass murder and locked away in a psychiatric unit. Is he innocent, guilty, insane?
An old friend.
Roy’s lawyer – and King’s former mentor – calls on the pair of former Secret Service agents to look into the case. On the way to the meeting, King and Maxwell discover his dead body.
Web of deceit.
As King and Maxwell dig into Roy’s past, the more they are bombarded with obstacles, half-truths and dead ends that make filtering the facts from fiction nearly impossible.
A rush of terrifying events unfold that will push King and Maxwell to the limit. Could this increasingly deadly case be the one that leaves the duo permanently parted?
The Sixth Man is followed by the sixth and final book in the King and Maxwell series, King and Maxwell.
At the outset of Baldacci's routine fifth thriller featuring ex Secret Service agents Sean King and Michelle Maxwell (after First Family), the pair, who now work together as private investigators, fly to Maine to meet Ted Bergin, King's old law professor. Bergin has hired King and Maxwell to assist in his defense of Edgar Roy, a U.S. government employee who's been indicted for murdering six people found buried on Roy's Virginia farm. Because for some reason it's a federal case, Roy is incarcerated at a Maine prison. Near their destination, the PIs stop to investigate a broken-down car on the side of the road. Inside is Bergin, who's been shot between the eyes. King and Maxwell probe deeper into the charges against Roy to find the professor's killer, with no help from Roy, who hasn't been talking since his arrest. A fast pace compensates only in part for a cartoonish villain a venal politician and a familiar Washington conspiracy plot.
