The Sixth Man by David Baldacci

The readers can download The Sixth Man Audiobook for free via Audible Free Trial.


Edgar Roy-an alleged serial killer held in a secure, fortress-like Federal Supermax facility-is awaiting trial. He faces almost certain conviction.



  • There were a few chapters that felt unnecessary, maybe around six too many. The conclusion didn't match the standard set by the previous books. It would have been better if it ended when the events were still comprehensible.
  • I've gone through all of Baldacci's books and loved each one. I kind of regret going for the audiobook instead of reading this particular book. I don't want to harp on the same point, but like other reviews have mentioned, the narration for Michelle's character is truly awful! Why didn't Ron just read the whole thing himself? With her narration, you wouldn't even think that Michelle and Sean had any sort of relationship outside of work. Nonetheless, this book is filled with captivating characters, intense scenes, and is an all-around fantastic read. Baldacci has consistently delivered and I still consider myself one of his biggest fans.
  • I really enjoyed the King & Maxwell series, although I have to admit that it doesn't quite reach the same level as David Baldacci's Will Robie series or the Camel Club series, in my opinion. Nevertheless, every book in the King and Maxwell series is absolutely worth the time to read or listen to. The Sixth Man introduces us to Edger Roy, a savant who is falsely accused of multiple murders, along with his older sister. This is also the first book in the series that features Orlagh Cassidy narrating the female dialog and Ron McLarty handling the rest of the narration. There's something truly special about the Cassidy-McLarty narrating duo, which Baldacci has also used in other novels. As amazing as Scott Brick is - and he truly is the best - I have to say that Cassidy-McLarty create an even better listening experience.
