By David Baldacci
The closer Amos Decker comes to the truth, the deadlier it gets in David Baldacci's latest #1 New York Times bestselling Memory Man thriller.
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...
"Decker is one of the most unusual detectives any novelist has dreamed up." --Washington Post
The Fallen5By Papa John 2Hope you never stop writing about the Memory Man, read all in series and waiting for another.
Best author Ever!5By BigwibesI learned how to read what I was about four years old with Dr. Seuss. I have readof thousands of books and continue to read at least one a week. I picked up a David Baldacci book from my friend last year and was hooked. In a little over a year I have read every book he has written and eagerly antipate the next one to hit the shelves. Thank you Mr. Baldacci!
Review of the Fallen3By train guy 101I love the Decker series and all the Baldacci books. My issue is that this book had such a painstaking buildup to the exciting conclusion. Less would have been more with the same result.
Decker5By Jabs nanaGreat book !!! Very fast read the best Decker book to date.
Great story5By nickbraun1Enjoyed the book. Highly recommended!
Excellent summer read5By G'Dad12Once you start, very hard to put down! Intriguing story with colorful characters.
The fallen4By LillybabeAt first this story seemed a little confusing, but then it all seemed to come together. Like Decker character & have read all the books featuring him.
Reminded me why I quit reading this author...1By Longhorn5555Silly plot, all over the map, amateurish and frankly boring. It’s like he just randomly writes stuff to get a page count, and then tries to tie it all together, with the result being a jumbled nonsensical story. Reminded me of why I quit reading Baldacci a long time ago. Frankly, the book just prior to this, by Joseph Finder for two bucks, was way better. Too many good authors out there to justify paying fifteen bucks for someone who dials it in like this seems to be.
The Fallen5By Rocketman 1952The master of mystery story tellers has done it again. Totally realistic and makes one believe it could actually be true!
Not his best work1By SteveinMarylandI usually like his books and his earlier Amos Decker books were good. This one, however, was a disappointment. The plot was complex to the point of being literally unbelievable. The errors in technology were distracting (a non-military drone does not sound like an airplane), the criminals using the drone for surveillance didn’t think to black out the lights. And I lost count of the number of murders committed in the small town of Baronville after six. It seemed to me to be a badly thought out attempt to highlight the very real impact of opioid addiction in small town America.
