Fiction. Mystery. Suspense. Thriller. HTML: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 #1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldaccis new thriller.
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 citys 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 Devines tedious routine is shattered by an anonymous email: She is dead. 
Sara Ewes, Devines coworker and former girlfriend, has been found hanging in a storage room of his office buildingpresumably a suicide, at least for nowprompting the NYPD to come calling on him. If that wasnt 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 countrys economic halls of power . . . where something rotten lurks. And apart from this high-stakes conspiracy, theres a killer out there with their own agenda, and Devine is the bulls-eye.

I've read quite a few novels by David Baldacci. This one returns us to his "thriller" format with Travis Devine being a former Army Ranger turned entry-level financial analyst. When Travis's co-worker, Sarah Ewes, is found dead in the building, it sets off a chain of events that leads to quite a large body count.

One of the things I like to do is figure out how the title relates to the book--in this case the 6:20 refers to the train that Travis took in to the office 6 days a week. We'll have to see if it develops additional meaning in future books of the series.

Not that it matters much in the end, because of what happens to the firm, but I was a bit surprised that Travis didn't get called out for how much time he took away from the office while he was investigating given how much was made about the people at his level needing to have their nose to the grindstone to be retained.

A fast pace thriller in a new series. I enjoyed the book borrowed from the local public library in 2022 as a light escape from my more formal historical reading. ( )

This fast pace thriller is a new series but follows the complicate twist plot that David Balducci is good at. I enjoyed the book and the character is well layout. The redemption/second chance is heavy and center in the book. ( )

A standalone adventure that was a little less tightly written than most of Baldacci's work. The plot and characters were solid and several plot twists kept the intensity up - only a couple didn't quite ring true. It's a bit over the top, as the hero deals with his painful emotions by making himself miserable, yet is fit enough to dodge bullets, charming enough to get relative strangers to take big risks on his behalf, creative and full of initiative... So, a very good read! ( )
