Publisher Description

The “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.

"I recently finished listening to the audiobook version of David Baldacci's "Long Shadows" and was incredibly impressed. It is a thrilling, suspenseful story that kept me glued to my phone throughout. From the first few minutes, I could tell that this would be a book to remember. The plot is complex and layered, with several key characters whose stories are intertwined in ways I didn't expect. Plus, there's plenty of thrills and surprises keep you engaged. In terms of storytelling, Baldacci has crafted a unique and captivating tale. I never felt bored or lost; every scene was perfectly paced and relevant to the greater story arc. The characters are well-developed and believable, allowing readers (and listeners!) to easily relate to them throughout their journey. Even minor characters have interesting characteristics and backstories which add depth to the world Baldacci has created. The audio production quality is superb and added another layer of realism to the story's setting. With its masterfully written plot and great production you won't regret selecting it as your next audio adventure!"

    — New York Journal of Books
