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.

Amos Decker and his colleague Alex Jamison are great to read about.

The Fallen: "It was all about the money." No matter how intricate, complex or convoluted the plot, the well-worn bottom line foundationally anchored by $ manifests itself in Baronville.

Not one of his better ones. I rate it a 6 of 10.

Everything you would expect from Baldacci, a veteran of this thriller/police procedure genre. The Memory Man lives on, solving a complex whodunit in the small town of Baronville. The opioid crisis of today is layer out in the convoluted…

Another fabulous novel by David Baldacci. There are different storylines intertwined with lots of twists and turns. Great read.

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…

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…

Plan nothing for 3 days. Literally. Turn off the phone. You are about to be owned by David Baldacci for the next 72-96 hours. Enjoy!!!

It was a page turner. Decker and Jamison are walking a tightrope on this vacation from hell.

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…

Another great Baldacci book. He is one of the best fiction writers of today.

So predictable it felt contrived and drawn out but it was still a good story. Amos Decker joins his FBI parnter Alex Jamison on a vacation visit to her sister's family in their new location of Baronville PA. Observing strange…

The book held my attention throughout. However, the premise is farfetched which made it a bit hard to enjoy. The ending in particular was way beyond the believable. I know this is fiction and it did keep me guessing who were the bad…

David Baldacci is at his best when he writes about Amos Decker. Amos and his partner Alex Jamison are back in the "Fallen." This book does not disappoint. Decker an Jamison are vacationing in Baronville at Jamison's sister's place when…

So slow moving. I skipped many pages out of boredom, then wished I'd skipped the book altogether. Didn't even read the last ten pages.

Plodding.

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…

David Baldacci does not disappoint with "The Fallen." I could not put it down.

Another great book from David Baldacci in the Memory Man series. I have enjoyed all his books but especially this series.
May 20, 2018USAF1969 rated this title 4.5 out of 5 stars
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…

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…
