Summary

The 6:20 Man is a heart-racing thriller set in the world of high finance in New York, from the number one best-selling author David Baldacci....

A journey that took him to hell....

Having survived combat tours in Afghanistan and Iraq and been decorated with medals, Travis Devine mysteriously leaves the army under a cloud of suspicion. And at 32 years old, he’s swapping fighting the Taliban and Al Qaeda for a different kind of danger in the cut-throat world of high finance.

His daily commute on the 6.20 a.m. train into New York’s financial district, to his new job as an analyst at the minted powerhouse investment bank Cowl and Comely, takes him into a world where greed, power, jealousy and ambition result in the financial abuse of the masses and the enrichment of an elite few. But it is on this daily journey that he passes a house where he sees something that sounds alarm signals he cannot ignore.

A close friend of Devine’s, Sarah Ewes, is the first victim and the mysterious circumstances surrounding her death at Cowl and Comely compel him to investigate further. As he digs deeper, he discovers strange coincidences and unnerving truths. As the deaths pile up, and the major players show their hands, he must question who he can trust and who he must fight.

A perfect storm!

A common explanation from the experts on the news in recent times is "perfect storm". Whenever someone asks why something is happening. Be it the pandemic, climate disasters, or inflation. Fortunately for us the readers, unfortunately for our 6:20 Man. Travis Devine seems to have gotten himself into the calm center that is the eye of a perfect storm. A heart-pounding, leaving your palms sweaty thriller.

Hmmm!

I’m a big fan of this author and have been for many years, this was not for me. Sadly, I think it may be the beginning of a new series.

So clever!

Baldacci never disappoints. I love that the “goody” in this story is such a mensch. Excellent research. We’ll worth the time.

Unbelievable | Poor characters | Bad Ending

The plot seemed like David had an idea but didn't really know how to end it. The characters became silly at the end. Probably won't read him again.

Just not good…

Really like Baldacci and this is just not good. Implausible and deeply uninteresting: production, mediocre

Absurd, banal, dull

Perhaps the worst audiobook I've endured. The plot is farcical, even laughable at the end. The characters are unbelievable characatures. The moralising is tedious. Even the narrators appear bored by their task.
