The 6:20 Man – David Baldacci | A Book Review

The 620 Man - David Baldacci

Title: The 6:20 Man

Author: David Baldacci

Genre: Mystery Thriller

About the book: It’s a standalone that follows Travis Devine, a former soldier turned financial analyst. One morning, he gets an anonymous email that one of his coworkers named Sara Ewes was found dead. To avoid a secret from his time in the army being exposed, Devine has to participate in the investigation into her death.

I received an advanced reader copy from Hachette Book Group in exchange for an honest review.

First impressions: I’m a big fan of David Baldacci, so I was excited to read his latest novel. The beginning does a good job of introducing the Devine and sharing his past.

Characters: I enjoyed learning more about the protagonist as well as other people who play a key role in the story. There are a lot of different characters, but they are distinct from one another, which makes it easy to keep track of everyone.

Quote:

“What would you do today if you knew tomorrow wasn’t coming for you?”

Writing: It’s a little over 400 pages with short chapters. The plot and red herrings kept me guessing all the way through. Some scenes contain graphic, gruesome moments.

Final thoughts: I didn’t see the ending coming, so it took me by surprise. There’s closure and everything makes sense. I know this is a standalone, but I would love to see Devine as the main character in a series. If you’re looking for a murder mystery set in the world of finance, I highly recommend The 6:20 Man.
