Watch King and Maxwell, TNT's new series based on David Baldacci's blockbuster novels, on Mondays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)

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.

THE SIXTH MAN

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.

Baldacci does it again! It is so rare to come across an author who can pen characters so distinct from each other and so indelible that they fairly live in the minds of the readers. Each time I read a Baldacci novel, I come away wondering if I'd heard of a similar situation on the news somewhere. Baldacci proves himself a master of mystery and heartwarming "family values": not only in the gradually-deepening relationship between King and Maxwell that moves at a credible pace through the novels, sliding through bouts of mistrust and distance, and coming to a close here at the end of the series, but also in this particular novel, between half-siblings Edgar and Kelly. Who else can write a character who doesn't say a word for forty chapters, and yet we are fully acquainted with him as we are with those who say a lot, but reveal so little about their true selves? Only Baldacci delivers such a full and enduring thrill-ride for readers everywhere!
