The 6:20 Man - David Baldacci is back with an enjoyable new thriller.
Each day, thirty-two-year-old Travis Devine takes the 6:20 train on Metro North's Harlem Line from scenic Mount Kisco to New York City and a Wall Street job he hates. After serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, the former U.S. Army Ranger is now an investment analyst intern at Cowl and Comely. The morning train passes the mansion of Brad Cowl, and the commuters are treated to a daily viewing of a gorgeous woman in a bikini by the pool. One day a co-worker and former love interest of Travis is found in the office dead of an apparent suicide. Once Sara Ewe's death is ruled a murder, Travis becomes the main suspect. As the secrets of Travis' past emerge, so do deep, dark secrets about the company as the death count rises. Enter Homeland Security who recruits Travis to work on the inside.
The 6:20 Man is a fun, action-packed story with a complex hero. Author David Baldacci has surrounded Travis Devine with a large and interesting cast of characters including Travis' three brilliant roommates. There are many people to keep track of and you are never quite sure who is good and who is bad. But we do know Travis is one badass guy who is fighting his own demons and someone you'll root for. Buckle up, suspend disbelief and enjoy the ride.
