Detective Amos Decker discovers that a mistake he made as a rookie detective may have led to deadly consequences in this compelling Memory Man thriller by #1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci.

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 when Hawkins turns up dead with a bullet in his head, 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 . . .


  • Most wonderful experience!

    This book is unusual and a testament to the skill of the author. OMG every time I think I know what’s going on he pulls another rabbit out of the hat. It’s a long book but quite amazing!!!
  • Disappointed.

    I struggled to finish this book, and ultimately failed. I liked the first couple of books in the series, but the shark has been well and truly jumped.

    Good plot. End rushed. Too much self pity. 3.5.
  • Decent writing, but

    By Longhorn5555
    the plots always seem implausible and simplistic. Instead of something straightforward it’s like he tries so hard the result becomes this hodgepodge of mashed up unrealistic scenarios. But, the writings decent.

  • Exceeded my expectations

    Really enjoyed joyed the unexpected plot twists. Melvin Mars has emerged as a very interesting addition.
  • Weakest book on Amos

    By italianka
    Previous books in this series were much better. I appreciated most of it anyway, but the ending was rushed, quite superficial. And Amos is like a poot wet dog sometimes, not a character I was used to

    3/5 stars. I continue to like the Decker character. Author includes a lot of minutia unrelated to the plot and character development. Tedious read...skimmed over a lot of parts that were predictable and boring.
