Publisher's Summary

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.

One of my favorite Baldacci Books

I usually always love David Baldacci books and this was one of my favorites. The only problem I had was the female narration of Michelle Maxwell's character. To me, she sounded like a whining, southern grandmother not the tough as nails charachter Michelle seems to be. I am not sure I ever got over the narration of her charachter (usually bad narration kills a book for me) but the story was good enough to get over this hurdle. I do, however, think they should look for someone with a more "crisp" no-nonsense voice.

Good story, terrible narrator of female part

Would you try another book from David Baldacci and/or Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ?

Yes, I've listened to 3 others and enjoyed them much more

How could the performance have been better?

They added a second narrator for the female parts. She's horrible! It ruins the entire performance.

Was The Sixth Man worth the listening time?

Barely due to the aforementioned duel narrator disaster.
