Synopsis

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.

Authentic scenario, mystery piled on misdirection, and more double-crosses than a tic-tac-toe tournament.
