The Sixth Man by David Baldacci

 You can always count on David Baldacci to keep the pages turning. Sure enough, The Sixth Man, does not disappoint. 

cover blurb - Sean King and Michelle Maxwell return in their most shocking case: a high stakes struggle where the relentless needs of national security run up against the absolute limits of the human mind. 

Edgar Roy is held as a serial killer in a Federal Supermax facility. His mind  is  no match for machines - perfect memory and  the ability to pull all data into his brain and process it for solutions. He's the answer to high stakes security issues. But is there a higher force at work to derail him?  What about his mysterious sister who did work for deep pockets of government surveillance?  

Hang in for a crazy ride as Sean and Michelle dig deeper to solve and  save the government. Whoa!

and on the topic in the news with Texas libraries all in a tizzy...I like this meme.  Freedom to read. 

Now I do  think it's up to parents to monitor their OWN kids and know what they are choosing  and reading. Age appropriate is a consideration.  Frankly the choices could give a lot  of insight into their child and what that  child is seeking. However,  do not blindly start banning books you have not  read, but have a predisposed idea on the subject matter. 

Big sigh on so many levels of this issue.   Freedom to read. Freedom to not...but don't ruin it for the rest of  us.  Same with movies,  television, theater. If you don't like it, don't participate. But don't keep me from delving deeper. 


  1. Definitely parents should monitor what their kids read. That they often don't is the real problem.

    1. True for TV, etc. These are prob the same people who had their kids in Vegas this week. I kept thinking- are you nuts?
