Brains. My low expectations for David Baldacci’s novel, The Sixth Man, were exceeded. Dynamic duo Sean King and Michelle Maxwell return to face powerful adversaries at the top of the government as they stumble into secrets that many want to keep hidden from scrutiny. While Baldacci’s character development remains shallow, and many plot elements are a bit farfetched, I found myself enjoying the novel, and was engaged after the first third until the end, even finding my brain engaged once in a while. Readers looking for simple escape fiction are those most likely to enjoy this book.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
