Summary Of The Book
When investigators Michelle Maxwell and Sean King are called in to probe into the unknown details of a certain case, they have no idea that they might be in for one of the toughest cases they have ever dealt with.
The story in The Sixth Man pits Sean and Michelle against powerful security agents and dangerous situations, while they try and dig into the past of an almost convicted alleged serial killer.
Edgar Roy has been accused of murder on numerous occasions and has been locked away in a well-guarded place called Cutter’s Rock. Ted Bergin, Roy’s lawyer, calls the two investigators to look into the case. However, even before they can start their investigations, they find Bergin murdered on the highway and things take an unprecedented turn with this event.
The two must now seek to unearth the unknown truths about Roy and his modus operandi. They must ask questions that not many people would like to ask regarding Bergin’s murder and Roy’s history. As they seek to make such discoveries, Sean and Michelle almost find themselves forced to part ways for good.
The novel is a gripping one that succeeds in holding the attention of its readers, thanks to Baldacci’s pacy writing.
