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.


  • New Direction for Amos

    By Scott_A_Miller
    5 Stars. Same Decker, new supporting cast. Maybe the best Memory Man Baldacci has given us. Great mystery that was interesting until the end. Plenty of room for another set of stories, fresh with his new partner, Freddie. Definitely looking forward to seeing what’s coming.

    Good book. Kept you on the seat of your pants
  • Good book, but . . .

    By Dan Vermilion
    This was an interesting book from one of my favorite authors. But it goes on too long and there is an enormous amount of time speculating about what might have happened. Time and again. Still, it ends well and is a pretty good read. But not one of his best.

  • Why?

    By Rg110647
    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!
