Publisher's Summary

Memories can be a real killer.

Melvin Mars awaits his fate on death row. He was one of America's most promising football stars until, aged 20 years old, he was arrested and convicted for the murder of his parents - just as he was due to begin a very lucrative contract with the NFL.

When Amos Decker, newly appointed special agent with the FBI, hears the news that Melvin was saved in the final seconds before his execution because someone has confessed to the killings, he persuades his boss to allow him to carry out an investigation into the Mars murders. There are facts about the case which don't add up, and as the investigation deepens, Decker and his team uncover layer upon layer of lies and deception rooted at a time in American history which most would rather forget, but some seem keen to remember.

There is someone out there with a lot to hide and a secret that everyone is looking for. A race against time ensues, because when revealed, that information threatens to tear apart the corridors of power at the very highest level. The case proves to be life-changing for both Mars and Decker in ways that neither could ever have imagined.

    "Structure of chapters"

    It was hard to keep track of chapters because the visuals said 14 chapters but in reality there were multiple chapters in each one.

    "Enthralling from the very first."

    Well developed with unexpected twists and relationships. On occasions you may expect a development which then has a twist, there is a time line development to surprise.

    "Good but not as good as the first in this series"

    I enjoyed this book but felt i knew what was coming before it happened. I liked the first book in this series better. I was eager to listen to this because of that one but although it held my attention i am not eagerly waiting to hear the next.

    Story
    "Baldacci's Decker Full of Aces!"

    The first book in this series was a good one but with The Last Mile Baldacci moves smoothly into top gear. While the opening volume was slower due to the need to setup the characters and background this one feels perfectly paced. It delivers an entertaining story smoothly with the author showing increasing confidence in his characters. Gone is the need to explain Decker's complex background and medical condition, that aspect is now limited to small and occasional reminders.

    The dual-aspect narration is more smoothly produced and Kyf Brewer is a more upbeat male voice which further boosts the tempo. The opening scenes on Death Row are one of the highlights of the book.

    With these improvements this promises to be a very successful series with the potential for longevity should Baldacci so choose. This story is a similar mystery to the first where the devil is in the detail and the smallest of clues turn out to be important.

    So, if you enjoyed the first book you may well find yourself liking this one even more. The story comes to the fore over the character backgrounds and leads up to an exciting conclusion. If you haven't read the first book then I wouldn't advise jumping straight into this one as you will miss out on the carefully constructed back stories for the characters.

    In summary, a five star thriller all the way!

    "Baldacci @ his best."

    Well narrated, as done badly it's very off putting.
    Interesting story that keeps moving, more than worth a listen.
    Keeps listener entertained @ all times.

    "Couldn't suspend my disbelief long enough to enjoy this"

    Judging from the other reviews, I'm the only one who didn't quite enjoy this :/ After loving Memory Man to death, I was fully prepared to love The Last Mile as well. Sadly, there was an element to the plot (why Melvin really ended up in prison) that I just hated and found very unbelievable, despite the explanations in the book. It was an entertaining book but a bit disappointing.
