It was interesting right up until the ending which was a little too pat. It does seem through so many of his books about the "bad cop" characters. Especially, the bad female cop in so many of the stories.

A modern-day violent story that "too damn much" money from the opioid trade corrupted those in a dying mining/milling town that is trying to make a comeback, but at what cost? Not an ordinary drug war novel but includes other twists about…Read moreRead more of this comment

I do so enjoy the characters Decker/Jamison as well as Baldacci's writing; however, one has to suspend disbelief to a marked degree to enjoy this novel. I didn't care for the storyline, but the writing is top notch and laying the puzzle…Read moreRead more of this comment

Slower to develop than his usual tale. The Memory Man had to do it all pretty much on his own. A rather complex story of rust belt woes, sadly it is very factual in the turn to opiates in the rust belt today. Addiction is always the escape…Read moreRead more of this comment

Decker and his comrade go on vacation.... and run into a real spaghetti mess. Could not keep most of the characters straight... probably understandable as nearly everyone in this small town is in some kind of thrall to opioid pill-pushers…Read moreRead more of this comment

THE FALLEN is the best David Baldacci book yet in the Memory Man Series. Decker and Jamison are "on vacation" in a small town where Jamison's sister lives. Decker is relaxing on her deck outside when he notices strange things going on in…Read moreRead more of this comment

3½ stars. I totally did my happy dance when I got my hands on this book! I love the Amos Decker series sooo much! Sadly, this wasn't my favorite in the series. There were so many story lines to keep track of - and the end of the book…Read moreRead more of this comment
