Amos Decker Series, Book 4

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...

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Listeners join "memory man" Amos Decker as he finds himself in the midst of a series of murders. What starts out as a simple trip ends up as a race against time to stop more murders, with Decker using his special talent to bring the story to a thrilling conclusion. Set against the bleak backdrop of a former mining town struggling with a crumbling economy and extensive drug addiction, this fast-moving story is delivered by two accomplished narrators. With Kyf Brewer's pitch-perfect delivery and skilled characterizations and Orlagh Cassidy's voices for the female protagonists, listeners are treated to an easy-to-follow and enjoyable listen. The rhythm of the dual narration is flawless and helps to differentiate the characters as well as giving the listener the sense of hearing the dialogue firsthand.
