With over 110 million copies of his novels in print, David Baldacci is one of the most widely read storytellers in the world. Now he introduces a startling, original new character: a man with perfect memory who must solve his own family's murder.
Amos Decker's life changed forever--twice.
The first time was on the gridiron. A big, towering athlete, he was the only person from his hometown of Burlington ever to go pro. But his career ended before it had a chance to begin. On his very first play, a violent helmet-to-helmet collision knocked him off the field for good, and left him with an improbable side effect--he can never forget anything.
The second time was at home nearly two decades later. Now a police detective, Decker returned from a stakeout one evening and entered a nightmare--his wife, young daughter, and brother-in-law had been murdered.His family destroyed, their killer's identity as mysterious as the motive behind the crime, and unable to forget a single detail from that horrible night, Decker finds his world collapsing around him. He leaves the police force, loses his home, and winds up on the street, taking piecemeal jobs as a private investigator when he can.
But over a year later, a man turns himself in to the police and confesses to the murders. At the same time a horrific event nearly brings Burlington to its knees, and Decker is called back in to help with this investigation. Decker also seizes his chance to learn what really happened to his family that night. To uncover the stunning truth, he must use his remarkable gifts and confront the burdens that go along with them. He must endure the memories he would much rather forget. And he may have to make the ultimate sacrifice.
MEMORY MAN will stay with you long after the turn of the final page.

This is the first book I've ever read from Baldacci. I am a fan! This may be the first book I've read every single word of. I'm normally a skimmer. READ IT!!!! 55
What a page turner 45
I am a fan of David Baldacci, I read most everything he writes. This book is, was terrible in all facets, in my opinion. The idea of the lead character with his abilities is intriguing, it just did not work in this setting. 15
This was a great read from a great author. Imagine a personal life changing event that leads to murder and mayhem. Imagine that you now have an eidetic memory and see things in color. Imagine you're a cop with all this. Now you have the setting for a great piece of fiction. This book will keep you hooked from beginning to end. 55
I've read David Baldacci books since the very beginning and I've never been disappointed in a single one. This is one of his best. All the right elements of good story telling and a plot that moves like the wind. 55
I am a Baldacci fan, and I gave this one my best shot, but I cannot subject myself to this torture. 25
I love this new character Amos Decker and hope to see him in more books. The book was superb. 55

Great book! Well written. Couldn't put in down. Kudos to author. Enjoy it. 55
If you can accept as fact that someone playing professional football can get a severe head concussion and then wake up with an extraordinary memory you will love this book. It is fast paced, keeps you riveted to your seat. I could not put it down from the very first page! Good thing I didn't have to work because I read the whole book in just under two days. 55
Compelling read with strongly developed characters. Evolving action with multi-sided definition and reason provided. It looks live a foundation for an ongoing future series of stories. 45
Plot moved along smoothly. Didn't want to put it down. Very satisfying ending. Bring on the next Decker book! 55
Couldn't put it down. 55
Steady steady build build Bam! Resolution, satisfaction, a future. 55
