"Decker is one of the most unusual detectives any novelist has dreamed up." (Washington Post) Amos Decker is the Memory Man. Following a football-related head injury that altered his personality, Decker is now unable to forget even the smallest detail - as much a curse as it is a blessing. And in number one New York Times best-selling author David Baldacci's gripping new thriller, Decker's life might be about to change again.... Something sinister is going on in Baronville. The rust belt town has seen four bizarre murders in the space of two weeks. Cryptic clues left at the scenes - obscure Bible verses, odd symbols - have the police stumped. Amos Decker and his FBI colleague Alex Jamison are in Baronville visiting Alex's sister and her family. It's a bleak place: a former mill and mining town with a crumbling economy and rampant opioid addiction. Decker has been there only a few hours when he stumbles on a horrific double murder scene. Then the next killing hits sickeningly close to home. And with the lives of people he cares about suddenly hanging in the balance, Decker begins to realize that the recent string of deaths may be only one small piece of a much larger scheme - with consequences that will reach far beyond Baronville. Decker, with his singular talents, may be the only one who can crack this bizarre case. Only this time - when one mistake could cost him everything - Decker finds that his previously infallible memory may not be so trustworthy after all...
Very poor quality....
The quality of this audi-book was very poor. At least 6 different parts were garbled. I have enjoyed other audio-books by this author and about these characters but this book does not measure up to the standatrd.
HORRIBLE - Like a Scooby Doo episode.
Borderline ridiculous. The first 90 % was hard enough to get through, but the final chapter was ridiculous. Good guys and Bad guys standing around talking through the entire story line together (revelations).
I used to enjoy some of his earlier work. But this “book a year” $ making process has produced intolerable story telling/writing lately.
