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....

Critic Reviews

"A star performance by Kyf Brewer and Orlagh Cassidy should push this audiobook to the top of every thriller fan’s must-hear list. As a result of being hit on the head, Amos Decker, portrayed by Brewer, can remember everything that ever happened to him, complete with emotions. Brewer owns Decker’s intensity. He gives the character great focus and a steely resolve to find out whether the late Meryl Hawkins, a man he convicted of murdering four people 13 years earlier, was truly guilty. Cassidy tackles every female character with precision and care. Her take on Mary Lancaster, Decker’s former partner, showcases her abilities with the pregnant pause and perfect pacing. Together they create a presentation second to none and provide supercharged entertainment." (AudioFile)

Brilliant

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

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...)

Better than the last one

I found the last Decker book a bit hard to listen to but this one seemed to flow better. Some real stereotypes (why this depersonalised trend in US novels to say "my family" like their names are forgotten). There is the cop who doesn't like Decker, then does, the corrupt senior policeman, and the complete disregard for the boss Decker should work for. It's a good listen in part owing to the the great 2 person narration and in part because it's just an easy ride. Please, tho, can the next Decker novel not be about his family, or his partners family or the dogs family... Let's just have a nice clean crime

Good story

Having listened to all the Amos Decker stories this didn’t disappoint. His character is developing and changing book by book, and I look forward to seeing where his journey ends up.
The supporting characters are also well written

it felt like Baldacci got stuck

There's a very good core story here, and great characters, but the telling seems to be somewhat off. There are whole scenes of tortured exposition both to get the story moving and finish it off.
For example, Decker and his former partner decide to go over an old crime scene again, but the dialog is as if they're telling each a story rather than detailing a crime. It just feels weird.
Baldacci has always been guilty of adding random lists of detail. It's as if he's googled "top 10 best wines" or "top 5 computer hacking methods", and then got a character to read them out to prove he's an expert. Usually his excellent pacing makes this forgivable, but this book would be much better if it were leaner and tighter.
I did enjoy it, but it left me thinking that Baldacci got stuck and didn't know how to finish it whilst maintaining the pace.

Good, but not the best

I'm a massive David Baldacci fan and have read all his books. While this story was good and it had the usual twists and turns I didn't find this to be the best read. Didn't keep me captivated and enthralled as some of his other books did. Won't stop me from reading the next David Baldacci novel though.

Love Amos Decker

David Baldacci never fails to please. The characters in the Amos Decker series blend together really well. Excellent story.
