20 books on the New York Times best selling list. 90 million copies in print. A foundation that promotes literacy through grants. With all his success, you might think David Baldacci would sit back and rest on his laurels.
You'd be wrong.
I just spent 20 minutes on the phone with him, and these things are for certain - he takes nothing for granted, he works hard at his craft - and he really likes to laugh.
He insists on doing every bit of research for each book.
He's developed contacts embedded deep within the inner workings of the intelligence community.
He is serious about the development of both his characters and his story lines.
Baldacci's new book, "The Sixth Man," part of the Sean Maxwell/Michelle King series, takes readers into the violent and turbulent world of intelligence and sets logic on its ear.
The book is set for release next month.
Watch for my two-part interview with Baldacci in upcoming editions of your News-Telegram. If you're a fan of espionage and long for the days when Robert Ludlum was at the top of his game, you'll enjoy hearing what Baldacci has to say about the deadly world of intelligence gathering.
