The Fallen

Star FBI detective Amos Decker and his colleague Alex Jamison must solve four increasingly bizarre murders in a dying rust belt town--and the closer they come to the truth, the deadlier it gets in this rapid-fire #1 New York Times bestseller.

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...

The Fallen5 star

One of the better and most complex Balducci novels 55


Not one of Baldacci’s best.2 star

Preposterous is a good word to describe this book. We never learn how large the town is but apparently they have enough police force to not miss those that are killed Often. The ending is abrupt and those of the book is long the explanations of what was going on is handled in the last few paragraphs. Most of this makes little sense.I’ve always enjoyed Baldacci’s books but this one was a little much. 25

Best author Ever!5 star

I learned how to read what I was about four years old with Dr. Seuss. I have readof thousands of books and continue to read at least one a week. I picked up a David Baldacci book from my friend last year and was hooked. In a little over a year I have read every book he has written and eagerly antipate the next one to hit the shelves. Thank you Mr. Baldacci! 55

Review of the Fallen3 star

I love the Decker series and all the Baldacci books. My issue is that this book had such a painstaking buildup to the exciting conclusion. Less would have been more with the same result. 35

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

I really enjoyed this book. I liked the softer side of Decker with Zoe and the other people. I could not but the book down. 55


Not Baldacci’s best effort.3 star

I have enjoyed all of Baldacci’s books, but this one was a struggle to stay with it. The plot was rather weak, the usual full cast of characters in the Decker series was missing. It felt like the author wanted to release the next book in a timely fashion and quickly put something together. Hopefully wherever he goes with his next release, he will return to the form we have come to enjoy so much. 35


The Fallen5 star

This book follows the career of a damaged man who continues to heal emotionally and change physically. The tightly wrapped mystery and the police procedural aspects develop into a story that hard to put down. 55


The Fallen1 star

Meh . . . . Amos Decker, who got off to a good start, deserves better than this lame plot. 15

Super Clock

The Fallen5 star

Once again David B’s book is outstanding. The story flow with a myriad of sub plots and always supporting the main plot. Keeps the reader guessing how Amos is going to solve this and who is the main culprit. Looking forward to the next book David authors. 55

Excellent5 star

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
