Travis Devine boards the 6:20 a.m. train to his job in Manhattan at a prestigious investment firm. The train's route passes an affluent neighborhood giving Travis dreams of someday living in one of the lavish homes with a hot lady poolside.
Until one morning his routine is changed by an anonymous email: She is dead. Devine's ex-girlfriend/co-worker is found hanging in a storage room at the office. He is tasked by his past in the Army to participate in the investigation into her presumed suicide and shady dealings of the firm.
This new novel penned by the great David Baldacci is the perfect example of thriller buildup. At 88% through, it was not even close to over! I was wondering how this would wrap up. Bodies were dropping left right left. The little details all lead to a very satisfying end. The 6:20 Man is a realistic deep dive into dark finance at its finest.
Happy Pub Day, David Baldacci! The 6:20 Man is now available.
