Description

When a convicted killer is saved by another man's confession, Amos Decker, now an FBI special task force detective, must find the truth in this "utterly absorbing" #1 New York Times bestseller (Associated Press).

Convicted murderer Melvin Mars is counting down the last hours before his execution--for the violent killing of his parents twenty years earlier--when he's granted an unexpected reprieve. Another man has confessed to the crime.

Amos Decker, newly hired on an FBI special task force, takes an interest in Mars's case after discovering the striking similarities to his own life: Both men were talented football players with promising careers cut short by tragedy. Both men's families were brutally murdered. And in both cases, another suspect came forward, years after the killing, to confess to the crime. A suspect who may or may not have been telling the truth.

The confession has the potential to make Melvin Mars--guilty or not--a free man. Who wants Mars out of prison? And why now?

But when a member of Decker's team disappears, it becomes clear that something much larger--and more sinister--than just one convicted criminal's life hangs in the balance. Decker will need all of his extraordinary brainpower to stop an innocent man from being executed.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 22, 2016 – In bestseller Baldacci's so-so sequel to 2015's Memory Man, the FBI persuades Amos Decker a former professional football player, whose career-ending injury left him with some unusual abilities, including an almost perfect memory to join a new unit that combines special agents and "civilians with special skills" to reopen select cold cases. Decker advocates for a case that appears resolved. Former college football standout Melvin Mars is reprieved minutes from his execution after another convict on death row, Charles Montgomery, confesses to murdering Mars's parents in their Texas home more than 20 years earlier. Decker feels an affinity for Mars, since the two played against each other once, and Decker also lost family members to a killer. His strong feelings prevail, and his unit looks into whether Montgomery is being truthful and why he waited so long to come forward. Despite his extra brain power, Decker doesn't leave much of an impression. This entry will work best for readers with a taste for improbable resolutions.

Customer Reviews

Worst Decker ever!

If you're trying to get away from the pc crowd don't read this. Conservatives are bad, people from the south are racist, Texas kills innocent death penalty inmates and rich white guys are muderers, racists, evil and are in total control. This was the most boring one-sided piece of tripe I've ever read.

Great character with conflicts

Decker is a flawed character who is determined to do what is right no matter the consequences. He wants the bad guys to be held accountable no matter how many years have passed. The character of Amos Decker gives the reader a small peek into what it maybe like to have Autism, Asperger’s syndrome or another neurological disorder that has high functioning brain power. I really enjoy following Baldacci’s characters over many years.

Thoroughly engrossing and satisfying.

Great book. Tremendous characters, plot, and execution.
