The Fallen

The closer Amos Decker comes to the truth, the deadlier it gets in David Baldacci's latest #1 New York Times bestselling Memory Man thriller.

Something sinister is going on in Baronville. The rust belt town has seen four bizarre murders in the space of two weeks. Cryptic clues left at the scenes--obscure bible verses, odd symbols--have the police stumped.

Amos Decker and his FBI colleague Alex Jamison are in Baronville visiting Alex's sister and her family. It's a bleak place: a former mill and mining town with a crumbling economy and rampant opioid addiction. Decker has only been there a few hours when he stumbles on a horrific double murder scene.

Then the next killing hits sickeningly close to home. And with the lives of people he cares about suddenly hanging in the balance, Decker begins to realize that the recent string of deaths may be only one small piece of a much larger scheme--with consequences that will reach far beyond Baronville.

Decker, with his singular talents, may be the only one who can crack this bizarre case. Only this time--when one mistake could cost him everything--Decker finds that his previously infallible memory may not be so trustworthy after all...

"Decker is one of the most unusual detectives any novelist has dreamed up." --Washington Post

Excellent summer read5 star

At first this story seemed a little confusing, but then it all seemed to come together. Like Decker character & have read all the books featuring him. 45


Reminded me why I quit reading this author...1 star

Silly plot, all over the map, amateurish and frankly boring. It’s like he just randomly writes stuff to get a page count, and then tries to tie it all together, with the result being a jumbled nonsensical story. Reminded me of why I quit reading Baldacci a long time ago. Frankly, the book just prior to this, by Joseph Finder for two bucks, was way better. Too many good authors out there to justify paying fifteen bucks for someone who dials it in like this seems to be. 15

The Fallen5 star

The master of mystery story tellers has done it again. Totally realistic and makes one believe it could actually be true! 55


Not his best work1 star

I usually like his books and his earlier Amos Decker books were good. This one, however, was a disappointment. The plot was complex to the point of being literally unbelievable. The errors in technology were distracting (a non-military drone does not sound like an airplane), the criminals using the drone for surveillance didn’t think to black out the lights. And I lost count of the number of murders committed in the small town of Baronville after six. It seemed to me to be a badly thought out attempt to highlight the very real impact of opioid addiction in small town America. 15

Easy and Wonderful Read5 star

This is one of those suspense books you'll read for hours at a time. Always exciting and you will find yourself trying to figure out, "who done it". GREAT BOOK! 55

Must read. One of his best. 55


The Fallen5 star

Amos Decker's much anticipated return did not disappoint. I simply could not put it down. His plots and many fascinating characters along with the many twists and turns kept my attention throughout the book. He continues to flesh out Decker and his partner, Alex Jamison, but leaves us wanting more. While I'm sure Mr. Baldacchi is very busy, I hope he does not make his fans wait too long for the next installment of this amazing series. 55

Favorite Amos Decker book to date5 star

This is a really good book in the Amos Decker series. My favorite so far. It shows a side of Amos that I was anxiously waiting to read. The true drug issues going on in our society today, where detailed and true. I am glad I binged this book today. What a fantastic tale. 55


Excited!5 star

I am very confused as to why this book is not labeled as book 4 in the Memory Man series. I am pretty sure this is the fourth book; I hope I am not wrong. But I must say I have read the other three Amos Decker novels and I am completely obsessed with them. I recommend this series highly! Baldacci puts so much detail into his writing, it truly makes for a perfect crime/mystery series. I love all the little details Baldacci is able to create, and how they all add together to produce such a well-written/intriguing page-turning series. Needless to say... I cannot wait to get my hands on the paperback version of this novel ! 55
