Description

Detective Amos Decker discovers that a mistake he made as a rookie detective may have led to deadly consequences in the latest Memory Man thriller in David Baldacci's #1 New York Times bestselling series.
Decker is visiting his hometown of Burlington, Ohio, when he's approached by a man named Meryl Hawkins. Hawkins is a convicted murderer. In fact, he's the very first killer Decker ever put behind bars. But he's innocent, he claims. Now suffering from terminal cancer, it's his dying wish that Decker clear his name.
It's unthinkable. The case was open and shut, with rock solid forensic evidence. But then Hawkins later turns up dead with a bullet in his head, and even Decker begins to have doubts. Is it possible that he really did get it wrong, all those years ago?
Decker's determined to uncover the truth, no matter the personal cost. But solving a case this cold may be impossible, especially when it becomes clear that someone doesn't want the old case reopened. Someone who is willing to kill to keep the truth buried, and hide a decades-old secret that may have devastating repercussions....

  • What Happened? Not the Decker of previous.

    I truly enjoyed the previous Decker Saga’s. This one was not up to par. This entire novel sacrificed the Amos Decker Character for the sake of writing another book. My biggest complaint is the flow towards the end, it seemed rushed and assumed too much. The conclusions draw at the end was a dump of information that seemed to want to develop a “new” plot. Supervisor Childress was an unbelievable character that should have been developed better. Peyton turns out to be a murderous James Bond with fatherly feelings for his daughter that he was helping from behind the scenes? I was disappointed.
