Description

From the author of The 6:20 Man, “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.

    Why do I think that the next Baldachi book will be better than the last one I read? Years go by and then a new Baldachi book is released I think, that sounds pretty good. But, nothing changes. Just a good story line that is interrupted by events & clues that come out of nowhere. This will definitely be my last!
  • Awesome!

    A one thing about a five hundred pager, too many characters are introduced as suspects. It also gets very redundant and boring. I am surprised I stuck with it. They should have paid the editor more money.
  • Intriguing and Entertaining!

    David Baldacci creates another great work of fiction that keeps the reader engaged to the end. I have enjoyed his Amos Decker series.
