After the #1 New York Times bestsellers Split Second, Hour Game, Simple Genius, and First Family, Sean King and Michelle Maxwell return in their most shocking case: a high stakes struggle where the relentless needs of national security run up against the absolute limits of the human mind.

THE SIXTH MAN

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.

"Gripping, chilling, and full of surprises."-- Publishers Weekly on Stone Cold "Gripping, chilling, and full of surprises." "Publishers Weekly on Stone Cold"" "Gripping, chilling, and full of surprises."--Publishers Weekly on Stone Cold "High-stakes action, shadowy government agencies, and [a] neo-Cold War backdrop . . . Baldacci pushes his plot ahead at such a blistering pace."--Washington Post on The Whole Truth "A rousing success . . . Baldacci shows once again that he is a sort of thriller Renaissance man: a master of plot, dialogue, and character."--Booklist (starred review) for Divine Justice "It's his eager, expansive imagination that drives his books . . . Like other thriller writers, Baldacci depends on a mixture of inventive plotting, appealing characters, luck, and consistency. Unlike others, his books rely more on characters' relationships than whiz-bang technology or procedural twists . . . What he offers is in some ways more unusual."--Newsweek on First Family "Equal parts Hitchcock and James Bond, it's the perfect literary cocktail...One of Baldacci's best."--Richmond Times-Dispatch on Deliver Us from Evil "A complex puzzle . . . Baldacci is a master craftsman."--Associated Press on The Sixth Man "Authentic scenario, mystery piled on misdirection, and more double-crosses than a tic-tac-toe tournament."--Kirkus Reviews on The Sixth Man "Gripping, chilling, and full of surprises." Publishers Weekly on Stone Cold"
