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 #1 New York Times bestselling 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 only been there 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.

    " Really liked this..nice twist! "

    " I like the Amos Decker series more with every book. This time it is a different setting without most of the team present, although they were mentioned. Jamison and Decker are on "vacation". The plot has a more intimate feel in the small town setting. I really enjoy the pairing of Jamison and Decker. Jamison accepts Amos eccentricities and still pushes him to be more than just "memory man". Decker's character is showing more sides (feelings), especially when he is with Zoe. The mysteries keep me guessing throughout the book. Can't wait for the next book! "

    " I really like David Baldacci books, I've read, or have listened to, all his works. I like the premise of Amos Decker's superpowers/curse. It was a little disappointing that they could fade or be excised so easily. His kriptonite I guess. But still a great book. "

    " This was a very good story, with a lot of characters to keep track of-you need to be paying close attention or you'll lose track of the story line. I particularly enjoyed the narration by Kyf Brewer. I did not care for the narration of the female lead (by Orlagh Cassidy), but I realize that may have been a directorial decision--they made her sound quite flat, which detracted from the story for me. Her narration of other female characters was good. "

    " This was a nice addition to the Amos Decker series. If you've read the other books and enjoyed them, pick this one up, it's more of the same. Baldacci sticks with his typical formula, but adds some wrinkles to Amos by tampering with his super powers (synesthesia & mental DVR). The suspense/"who done it" aspect of the book was good as always. There was a "dangers" of drug use theme to the books. Overall, enjoyed the read, recommend you give it a shot. Not necessary to have read any other in the series before this one, but it does help. Spoiler alert section: No Melvin Mars and I would have liked to see the loss of Decker's super powers have some more severe consequences. "

    " The Fallen (Amos Decker, #4) by David Baldacci is a great, engaging, and well-written story. The plot is like a slice of "today's" America, town's that have lost their luster now that the primary businesses have shut down, the influx of drugs and its effects on the people, corruption within the ranks of law enforcement, and people struggling to make ends meet. What starts out as a vacation trip to see Alex Jamison's family, turns into a complex murder mystery, but by the last page of the book, all loose ends are neatly tied up in a logical fashion. This is a must-read for fans of David Baldacci's Amos Decker series. "
