Description

From the author of The 6:20 Man, “Memory Man” Amos Decker—an FBI consultant with perfect recall—delves into a bewildering double homicide in this new thriller in David Baldacci's #1 New York Times bestselling series.
 
When Amos Decker is called to South Florida to investigate a double homicide, the case appears straightforward: A federal judge and her bodyguard have been found dead, the judge’s face sporting a blindfold with two eye holes crudely cut out, a clear sign that she’d made one too many enemies over her years on the bench.
 
What at first seems cut and dry is anything but: Not only did the judge have more enemies than Decker can count—from violent gang members, drug dealers, and smugglers to a resentful ex-husband—but the bodyguard presents additional conundrums that muddy the waters even further. Who was the real target in this vicious attack?
 
Meanwhile, Decker must contend with a series of unsettling changes, including a new partner—Special Agent Frederica “Freddie” White—and a devastating event that brings Decker’s own tragic past back to the present . . . and forces him to reckon with his future. As potential witnesses start disappearing, Decker and White are inexorably pulled down a twisted tunnel of secrets, crimes, and scandal—at the end of which lies Decker’s deadliest threat yet.

    A one thing about a five hundred pager, too many characters are introduced as suspects. It also gets very redundant and boring. I am surprised I stuck with it. They should have paid the editor more money.
  • Intriguing and Entertaining!

    David Baldacci creates another great work of fiction that keeps the reader engaged to the end. I have enjoyed his Amos Decker series.

    Very contrived story. Long and just not very good. A lot of suspension of disbelief

    This is Baldacci’s best ever Amos Decker mystery. Full of complex investigations with meticulous evidence thinking! The endings of the searches for the truth are mind boggling. Super perfect! Love Decker and White partnership!

    I kinda leaned a certain way about some potential killers but there were just to many twists and turns to feel any comfort about WHO DUNNIT or who I thought did it. I was about thinking I was close to the end of the book when I noticed I still had 450 pages to go. That kept me reading all day and into the wee hours of the night, falling asleep and getting up early this morning to finish one of the most fun books I have read in a long time. PLUS , I love the character Amos Decker. Hey David, can’t wait until you do another Memory Man. I hope you do as well!!
