The Sixth Wicked Child (4MK Thriller, #3) by J.D. Barker

The Sixth Wicked Child (4MK Thriller, #3)

In the riveting conclusion of the 4MK trilogy, Barker takes the thriller to an entirely new level. Don't miss a single word of the series James Patterson called "ingenious." Hear No Evil For Detective Sam Porter, the words “Father, forgive me” conjure memories long forgotten; a past intentionally buried. For Anson Bishop, these three words connect a childhood to the present as he unleashes a truth concealed for decades. See No Evil Found writ...

    4.5 stars"...everything is normal when you don't know any better." Isn't that the truth!First and foremost, if you have not read the previous books in this series, do not attempt this one. I mean this in the best possible way. You seriously do not want to miss a thing. The other two books set this book up perfectly plus you will be missing a mountain of back story (plus two really great books). Whew, is all I can say after finishing this one. Whe...

    I never realised that JD Barker was writing a 4MK trilogy based around a prolific master serial killer, Ansen Bishop, and that this is the final rip roaring finale to this series. On balance, I think that is a good decision, after reading the second book I felt that the premise driving this series was beginning to reach its limits. This is a thrilling firecracker of a conclusion, pulse pounding, a nervously biting fingernails affair, twisted in e...

    First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, J.D. Barker, and Hampton Creek Press for providing me with a copy of this publication, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review.As the riveting 4MK trilogy comes to an end, J.D. Barker offers the most explosive novel to date. Chilling in its delivery and full of unexpected twists, fans of the series should brace themselves as all the pieces finally come together. As the 4MK cases c...

    Thank you to J.D. Barker, Hampton Creek Press and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewFirst, I must advise you that you really need to read the first 2 books before you attempt to read this. As there is one hell of a back story (and they are both extremely good books), and they set this one up brilliantly. However, although you really need to read first 2 before this one, this is Mr Barkers journey a...

    This is one thriller that will blow your mind. Barker has gifted us the thrilling conclusion to the MK3 trilogy and he pulls no punches with this one. Note that it is a trilogy and there is a learning curve at the beginning to catch up with what has gone on before and all the characters. Even if you read the first two books, you may not remember all the details, particularly if you didn't make cliff notes, particularly of the ending of book two. ...

    I loved The Fourth Monkey and The Fifth To Die and have been anxiously awaiting the conclusion to the 4MK trilogy especially after the shocking cliffhanger in the last book. All I can say is as soon as I started The Sixth Wicked Child, I couldn't put it down. This is one of my favorite, and one of the best, serial killer/crime series around, by far. J.D. Barker has given us a serial killer suspect quite unlike any other: Anton Bishop is intellig...

    This is the shattering finale to the 4MK trilogy - a jet propelled serial killer thriller that will leave you breathless.In this final part of the series, the author J.D. Barker seems like a master magician switching the action from various locations with a half dozen characters speeding the action along.As the body count rises, Detective Sam Porter is placed in a Kafkaesque situation as he battles to remember his past while on the run from polic...

    "You cant play with God without being acquainted with the devil".Wow, wow, wow, now that was a grand finale! What a book, what an ending. I have to say I was sceptical whether this final book of the 4MK series will manage to round up the brilliant Fourth Monkey and The Fifth to Die. I was afraid that the closure will not be perfect ...But it was. I wont write about the ingenious plot of The Sixth Wicked Child. Or about all the unpredictable twist...

    If I could give this 500 stars I would! You know that feeling when you've just gotten off an exhilarating rollercoaster ride, and you look over at the person you shared it with, and you immediately start gushing about the twists and turns, the unexpected, and your favorite parts? Well that was me... I was so excited when I finished this book. Immediately I was searching for someone to discuss it with, over here like... "Ohhh... Oh my Gosh! I just...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Hampton Creek Press for an advance copy of The Sixth Wicked Child, the third and final novel in the 4MK series.The Sixth Wicked Child takes place immediately after the events of its predecessor, The Fifth to Die. Detective Sam Porter is back in Chicago and under suspicion so FBI agent Frank Poole is now in charge of the 4MK investigation. Trying to make sense of all the information he has he is soon under press...

    The Sixth Wicked child is an excellent end to the 4MK trilogy! I was hooked when I read The Fourth Monkey (2017). The Fifth to Die (2018) built on the SUSPENSE of finding out who the players really were and how it all would end. The Sixth Wicked Child (2019) continued to build the suspense until the very end. I found that I could not put down any of the superbly plotted novels. WARNING: non-stop TENSION from the first page to the last. Well writt...

    The Fourth Monkey and The Fifth to Die(first two books in this trilogy) were among my favorite reads in 2017 and 2018. The release of The Sixth Wicked Child(US – August 27, 2019), means that I have had the pleasure of 3 ***** reads in 3 years by the incredibly talented J.D. Barker. A lot is going on in this book, and if you haven't managed to keep track of what every character was doing when The Fifth to Die ended, this would be a really good t...

    Oh. My. GOODNESS. I couldn't put this book down- I HAD to find out what in Hades was going on. There were twists I never saw coming in a million years. And that ending!!! The conclusion to the 4MK trilogy was everything I could've asked for and more. The suspense literally kept me up at night and I had to read one more chapter, then another, then another. When I finished the book, I had to take a solid hour just to sit and process. Would I read t...

    I've had to take a few moments to restore my normal respiratory rate after finishing this amazing thriller. I've done absolutely nothing all day but race through the pages, each chapter ending in such a way as to taunt me with the potential for upcoming revelations and new information. Let me say that this was a most fitting conclusion to one of the best trilogies I can remember. If it's true that this is going to be a film or a miniseries, I pro...

    I'm relatively knew to the reading world so forgive me as I've read two of the three in the 4MK series however for me this one banged it out so well that I think I'll go back and read the 1st The Fourth Monkey.What I loved about this was reading fellow reviewers reviews because if my blogger pals aren't into it then I'm pretty darn sure it's a good pass for me as I read over 1k books a year and can't waste my time.My friends in the book world had...

    Wow, the third book in this trilogy does not disappoint. After a slow start setting the scene from the end of the second book, the author takes us on a roller coaster of a ride with a plethora of dead bodies and suspects which keeps us guessing until all is revealed about 4MK at the end. This is one of my favourite series of all time, I never re-read books but I might have to this time to savour it all again.

    In an ideal world I would have reread the first two books immediately before this one but to be honest I couldn’t wait I to get stuck in as soon as it hit my kindle. This is book 3 of the 4MK trilogy and you really need to have read the first two. I did have some concerns on the way through this one about where the author was going with it but ultimately I think he had the right ending. This is a great trilogy and I’m a bit envious of those n...

    Holy Monkey! What a thrilling tale to tie the previous two stories together. Don’t let the length fool you. It’ll draw you in and tare your brain in multiple directions. Each time I expected one out come to find out it went in a whole new direction. I felt so many emotions on this final ride I’m sad to see it end. I’ll certainly be rereading this series again and again!

    This stunning conclusion to the trilogy left me speechless. This is thriller writing at its absolute best. Told from multiple points of view, the action is non-stop as the reveals keep coming. There were so many times that I found myself questioning what I believed. All the story points are wrapped up in a more than satisfying way with a perfect ending. These complex characters draw the reader into their lives and make you invested in the outcome...

    I would recommend this to any want a novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat and is a real page turner. It is not one those mysteries that that you have figured by page ten. Definitely will surprise you. I would certainly recommend both of books. Great characters

    Oh. My. God. What an exhilarating, jaw-dropping, crazy and spectacular ride! J. D. Barker has ended the Four Monkey Killer trilogy on a bigger note than the gigantic one I was already anticipating. Not content with blowing our minds at the end of book two and leaving us wondering what on earth happens next for months, he now returns and takes everything you were thinking after the previous books’ revelations and pulls the rug from under you onc...

    5 starsThis is the final entry into J.D. Barker's 4MK trilogy. It starts out with a bang. The book has a large number of characters of which to keep track. I strongly suggest that the series be read in order of the publication to get the full impact of the story. So much is going on. There are stories within stories, tendrils going in several directions at once in this book. The reader almost needs to make a chart. Several murders are committed n...

    Oh my God!! What an extraordinary book this is!! And now how do any other book live up to the comparison of this entire series. When I read the first book in this series I had written "One of the best, if not the best thriller that I've read for a long time." in the review of that book. And honestly this series just kept getting better and better. This is by far the best series I have ever read and I doubt if any other series will ever be able to...

So twisted and clever this is a book with a devastatingly fiendish plot and it was perfect ...just 100% perfect that’s the only way I can actually describe this stunning book and just when you think it can’t get any better it damn well does and it just blew my mind !!! Superb writing that just took my breath away and fabulous characters what more can you ask for in a novel and this one has it all and a whole l...

    Thankyou to NetGalley, publishers and the author, J D Barker for the opportunity to read an advanced readers copy of The Sixth Wicked Child in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion. I could not read The Fourth Monkey and The Fifth To Die ( book one and two of the 4MK series ) fast enough. I thought they were the true epitome of what a thriller novel should be. Face paced and full of action and OMG, moments. You certainly could not predict w...

    This truly is a riveting, explosive ending to the 4MK trilogy! Just as with the first two books, it's tightly plotted and the tension never lets up. You definitely need to read the trilogy from the beginning as this book plunges straight into the action. If it's been a while since you read the last episode you may even want to go back and refresh your memory by rereading the last couple of chapters of book two, as I had to. J.D. Barker has writte...

    I loved The Fourth Monkey and its sequel The Fifth To Die so I was thrilled to discover I had been approved for the ARC of the final chapter in the series. The story hooked me from the first line and didn’t let go until the very end. It’s such a cliche to say “I couldn’t put it down” but in the 24 hours after receiving the ARC, I was either reading The Sixth Wicked Child or sleeping.If The Fifth To Die was a rollercoaster, The Sixth Wic...
