About this item

Bestselling author David Baldacci brings readers a moving and exciting novel filled with loyalty and betrayal, truth and deceit in THE SIXTH MAN. When his former mentor asks for help on a case, Sean King is more than willing to lend a hand. But the case of defending an alleged serial killer named Edgar Roy almost immediately turns twisty. Soon it seems that issues of national security depend on Sean and his partner Michelle Maxwell uncovering the truth.
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.
