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...

    Question EverythingThe Sixth Wicked Child is the final book of the 4MK trilogy. My reading Experience: The first word that comes to mind when thinking about this book is long-winded. It is way too long and could have been cut down significantly. For the first half of the book, I felt like I was being strung along just to drag things out. I was getting quite frustrated and had to force myself to continue reading. I loved the first two books in t...

    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...

    An Explosive and Fitting End to the 4MK Trilogy!First, let me start off by saying that this book was lengthy and at times I certainly felt it BUT I am so glad I stuck with it - in the end it was worth the time I dedicated to not only this book but the whole trilogy. Suspense builds and tension is at an all time high as we are forced to question what we know and what we think we know about ALL the key players in this series. Barker masterfully con...

        My thanks to Hampton Creek Press, Mr. Barker and Netgalley. I have loved this trilogy from the get go! The people, both good and bad are all in their own way very likable, to just downright lovable! The story. This story is not something I've come across in all my years of reading. Barker is the real deal! Funny thing is that everything I want to say about this last book, could be a spoiler. This is one of the few times that I wish I was ...

    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...

    EXCERPT: Tray didn't see her at first, the girl kneeling at the water's edge, facing away. Long, blonde hair trailing down her back. She looked like one of the statues, unmoving, facing the pond like that. Her skin was so pale, nearly white, almost as colourless as her white dress. She wore no shoes on her bare feet, no coat, only the white dress made of a material so thin it was nearly translucent. Her hands were clasped together near her breast...

    This is the final book in a trilogy that I enjoyed. My understanding is that it’s going to be made into a movie for the big screen and a mini-series for the little one. Barker is adept at having just about every chapter of the series be a mini cliffhanger. He changes the points of view from chapter to chapter, so either a cop or the serial killer will be in a perilous situation and you might have to wait a few chapters to pick up on that thread...

    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...

    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...

    I LOVE a good serial killer thriller and the trilogy that this book is part of is one of the best that I’ve ever read. It is such a complex and compelling series throughout, now looking back in hindsight I realize just how freaking brilliant the author is, I’m seriously blown away with how clever the plotting is and how perfectly this whole series was set up from beginning to end.I really don’t want to speak to the plot too much here, but d...

    The Sixth Wicked Child is the action packed conclusion to JD Barker's 4MK trilogy. If you have not read The Fourth Monkey and The Fifth to Die, do not read this one until you have done so. There is absolutely no way to fully understand the plot or the characters without reading the entire series. Unfortunately, I wish I had stopped at The Fourth Monkey. I thought it was one of the best books I ever had read. Not just thriller or horror or fiction...

    "You can't play God without being acquainted with the devil."5 stars are not enough!I am speechless! I am dazed! I am overwhelmed! I need to lie down! I need to reset my brain and massage my eyes!What a fantastic, tantalizing and devastating journey I had. From the beginning to the end reading this trilogy has been like riding a treacherous roller coaster, blindfolded! You know it is dangerous, you are aware of the risks; you don’t know when al...

    This series of novels is really amazing. I’ve read many thrillers, a few whodunnits, and several detective novels, and I’ve never seen anything like this before. Patterson, the well-known author, said it was ingenious. That’s underestimating this series.In this last novel of the trilogy, Barker leads us to doubt everything and everyone, even his main character! As the elements add up, we wonder who was in a position to be able to do this an...

    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 have not been a big fan of the complex 4MK series. Although I read the first two books in the past month, I wasn’t sufficiently engaged to find them memorable. There is no doubt that the author knows how to spin a lengthy, complicated plot with lots of coincidences and unbelievable threads and draw everything together with a valid conclusion. I realize many people enjoyed this book and praised it highly, and I can understand their reasons. I ...

    If you haven't read any books in this series, do not attempt to read this one as your start. You will be confused and totally not understand what's going on. Better to get all three books and read them one after the other from the beginning.If you have read the first two books, you'll still be confused, at first, but that works itself out.I gave the first two books 4 stars, and because this is the finale, I'm giving it 5 to sort of cover the enti...

    Once again J.D. Barker shows the amateurs how it's done in the third and final instalment of the epic, gripping 4MK series. Can this book be read as a standalone? I would suggest no as this is effectively one story divided between three books and each follows on from the last so should be read in order; they are also so astonishingly good that they are worth your time. The Sixth Wicked Child begins with a bang and the punch it packs continues for...

    Without a doubt, The Fourth Monkey trilogy is one of the best series I’ve ever read, let alone a serial killer one! With The Sixth Wicked Child coming in at over 600 pages as the final installment in the 4MK books, you might think the story of Sam Porter, Anson Bishop & co had no more steam left in the tank - and you’d be sorely mistaken. JD Barker is an absolute master of suspense with a unique ability to light up all the goosebumps in my bo...

    What a ride! This series has been completely addicting. Great twists that just kept you guessing the whole way through. Had me questioning who’s really the good guy... who’s really the bad guy. This is a series that needs to be read chronologically... too many moving parts to just dive into out of order. Only criticism was that there were lots of strings hanging and I’m wondering about some of them that weren’t fully explained. Still a tw...

    *4.5 stars rounded up. Buckle up for the exciting conclusion of the 4MK trilogy! If you are new to the series, I would recommend reading them all back-to-back. I read the first two books in that manner back in July of 2018 and then had to wait for over a year before this final book became available. The plot is complicated and I found I had a little trouble at first getting back up to speed on the details. But with J.D.'s help with small reminder...

    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...

    This series is simply breathtaking! I rarely loved thrillers (or detective & investigation novels) as much as these. Barker is a gifted writer, really very gifted. He managed to hook the readers from the beginning of his series and make them want to read the sequels fast. And to think that this third book is supposed to be the last one... :`( (I hope the author will find a way to write a fourth and a fifth and why not a sixth book. ;)Besides, the...

    It is the conclusion of 4MK trilogy. I think that there is no need to discuss the blurb or story briefing for reviewing this book. Anyone can easily get this by going through search engine. It’s a full package of thrills, suspense, violence and action! The quotation “Father, forgive me” will make you afraid. Multiple plot running in same situation and same time will make a reader interested to go to the heart of the story. The ending was ve...
