Slow at Times
Not the best work David has done. I figured out the plot half way through but continued reading because I had nothing else to read. Great plot but many fillers to get to the end.

I enjoyed both the "Memory Man" and the second Amos Decker mystery introducing Melvin Mars. This third Decker book was awful. The second half got so disjointed with so many unbelievable coincidences and story lines that I could barely finish it. Melvin Mars being in the book had nothing to do with the plot line and involving the ex-prisoner/football player in the solution of the “mysterious” murder and suicide was ludicrous. Decker was shown to be rude and arrogant to his girl friend and the other investigators. His memory was not a factor in the resolution of the case. It was a bunch of wild guess work and the whole story was Alice in Wonderland.

Very well done! Excellent read!
Not up to par
The first two in this Amos Decker series left me anticipating a good read with this third. It didn’t happen. It seems as though the author lost touch with his characters in this one. The plot dragged. If there’s a book four in this series, I’ll read it in hopes the characters are resurrected with the same wit and sparkle as in books one and two.
Every book in this series is addicting! I highly recommend this series if you are looking for mystery!
The Fix. - 4 stars for me.
IDK, could just be me being too distracted by “current events” but this failed to keep my attention for very long. It seemed to go very slowly at times. The ending was jam packed with excitement so left me with a good feeling. I wish the author would write to emphasize Decker’s extraordinary memory more in the stories. I find that ability very interesting. Still, a very good read.

Just a few too many main characters to fallow or it would have four stars. There is only one Hero and that is Amos Decker. He is both strong and vulnerable.
Those two characters make his heroics twice as valuable and did I mention lovable.
Add the twists and turns of a country under seize. He's the guy you want working for you.
I have used a lot of words to say very little. You just have to read it yourself.
Weak , very disappointed
I can’t believe this is a Balducci book . The story and writing is absolutely amateur. The Decker character and series is good, skip this one , complete waste of time and money .

The Fix and the Last Mile both excellent reads. They both kept me guessing and I couldn't put the books down. My husband gets jealous when I get one of Baldacci's books. Lol
I real page turner. You never stop guessing at what might happen next.
