The Sixth Man (Sean King & Michelle Maxwell, Bk 5)
The Sixth Man - Sean King & Michelle Maxwell, Bk 5 Author:David Baldacci 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.
Where is David Baldacci and what have you done to him? So many questions about this book: Was there a word minimum? Was there a contest to see how many times the characters could eat at a diner?...or rent a car?...or fly on a plane?
Yes, I read the entire book and plowed my way to the end...which was not a surprise.
I was so disappointed in this one.

David Baldacci is hit or miss. He is churning out a couple a books a year these days and to do so he often abandons critical elements of writing such as plot, character development and serious dialogue. Initially "The Sixth Man" seemed farfetched (but with the government who knows) but I began to get into the story as it progressed - in other words, it got better. A couple of plot twists weren't hard to figure out in advance but Baldacci revealed them in such as way that it still had an impact. "The Sixth Man" is more hit than miss. If you like Baldacci, you probably won't be disappointed.
