Publisher's Summary

FBI Special Agent Amos Decker discovers that a mistake he made as a rookie detective may have led to deadly consequences in the latest Memory Man thriller in David Baldacci’s number one New York Times best-selling series.

Amos Decker and his FBI partner Alex Jamison are visiting his hometown of Burlington, Ohio, when he’s approached by an unfamiliar man. But he instantly recognizes the man’s name: Meryl Hawkins. He’s the first person Decker ever arrested for murder back when he was a young detective. Though a dozen years in prison have left Hawkins unrecognizably aged and terminally ill, one thing hasn’t changed: he maintains he never committed the murders. Could it be possible that Decker made a mistake all those years ago? 

As he starts digging into the old case, Decker finds a startling connection to a new crime that he may be able to prevent, if only he can put the pieces together quickly enough....

I've missed Amos Decker

I waited so long for the next story in this series and I'm so sad it's over. I loved this book, the character building and the suspense of finding out the truth. The narration, as always, was sensational. I love the male and female narrators as it gives a lot more depth to the individual characters. Please don't let it be long before we hear from Amos again.

Brilliant

Another smashing hit in the series. Characters evolving and dive into the live of the protagonist is exceptionally well scripted.

Great book!

But why has Amos’ voice changed from all the previous recordings, even though it’s the same reader?

Too similar to others

I think I am done with Amos now as the books are too similar. Also the female narrator has a very limited range of voices.

AMOS GETS NEW VOICE!

Why change Amos’s voice back too original from book 1, having got used to the sharp,high one we’ve become accustomed too till now, which suited the complex geeky character of Decker’s quirky nature. It’s virtually a low Texan drawl. Overall 8/10

Lazy writing?

I used to love David Baldacci’s books - King and Maxwell, the Camel Club series, stand-alone books. But these latest ones seem rushed/not up to scratch. There’s too much dialogue being used to explain things. Too many allegedly intelligent characters stating the obvious or asking really dumb questions so that the reader gets told what’s going on. It’s not terrible, but nowhere near as good as his earlier stuff. Not sure I’d bother buying the next one (and I’ve read all of his books...)

Another winner

Just love this series and the characters. The story is once again strong and twists through out. The only thing I feel was missing was the lack of the FBI team, this is very Decker based.
