The 6:20 Man by David Baldacci Book Summary

A cryptic murder pulls a former soldier turned financial analyst deep into the corruption and menace that prowl beneath the opulent world of finance, in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller from David Baldacci.

Every day without fail, Travis Devine puts on a cheap suit, grabs his faux-leather briefcase, and boards the 6:20 commuter train to Manhattan, where he works as an entry-level analyst at the city’s most prestigious investment firm. In the mornings, he gazes out the train window at the lavish homes of the uberwealthy, dreaming about joining their ranks. In the evenings, he listens to the fiscal news on his phone, already preparing for the next grueling day in the cutthroat realm of finance. Then one morning Devine’s tedious routine is shattered by an anonymous email: She is dead. 

Sara Ewes, Devine’s coworker and former girlfriend, has been found hanging in a storage room of his office building—presumably a suicide, at least for now—prompting the NYPD to come calling on him. If that wasn’t enough, before the day is out, Devine receives another ominous visit, a confrontation that threatens to dredge up grim secrets from his past in the army unless he participates in a clandestine investigation into his firm. This treacherous role will take him from the impossibly glittering lives he once saw only through a train window, to the darkest corners of the country’s economic halls of power . . . where something rotten lurks. And apart from this high-stakes conspiracy, there’s a killer out there with their own agenda, and Devine is the bull’s-eye.

6:20 Man - Great book !!Packed with goodies. This was a wonderful and twisty ride ! Another super book from one of my favorite writers..Score: 5/5

DisappointedLacking the arousing literary style I’ve found in my other Baldacci reads. Hoping for a brief escape from insane “culture” perversions, I almost quit reading at the end when the plot “woke” and left me with the conclusion that this was my last Baldacci (maybe a ghost writer)..Score: 1/5

Pretty goodSlow start, but good once it got going. I’ve been a long time Baldacci fan. It saddens me that he is so bent on disparaging, villainizing, stereotyping, and over dramatizing conservative people and their views. There are plenty of conservative people who don’t shove their views down the throats of people the way Baldacci is so intent on bashing everyone over the head with his opinions. And, there are plenty of conservative people who love all people. Also, a successful author of this caliber pontificating about the greed of wealthy people seems disingenuous. I always buy every Baldacci book as soon as it comes out. I would love to read one that doesn’t bash conservative people, and falsely assign radical ideologies to anyone less liberal than he is. It’s really not necessary to the story lines..Score: 3/5

Truly awfulI’ve always enjoyed Baldacci’s books but this was truly awful. Dialog terrible, unbelievable characters and plot components that go unresolved. When you get to the end of the book and they have to explain each step to identify the antagonist it feels totally contrived. I also hope this is a not a new character the author wants to build a series of books around.why did I read to the end if it was so awful. I have vowed to always finish reading what I start. After this I may need to reconsider..Score: 1/5

Excellent readI’ve read a few David Baldacci books in the past, but this is the first in a few years. Great to see that he hasn’t lost his touch. The 6:20 Man is so full of twists and turns it keeps you in the edge of your seat. Really enjoyed it..Score: 5/5

Jack Reacher CloneAn interesting new character in ex-Army Ranger Travis Devine, who I suspect we’ll see again in future Baldacci stories. The premise for the story was somewhat sound but the plot twists and ending were pretty ridiculous with a lot of loose ends. As is often the case with popular mass market authors, the more novels they produce the poorer the quality. The reader is left with the distinct impression the author was under a hard deadline to finish the book and had to “wrap it up” one way or another without respect to the story line really making much sense and without any believability. At least Devine is a new macho character we can cheer for and hope to see again..Score: 3/5
