One of the better and most complex Balducci novels
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.

Hope you never stop writing about the Memory Man, read all in series and waiting for another.
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!

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.
Great book !!! Very fast read the best Decker book to date.
Enjoyed the book. Highly recommended!
Once you start, very hard to put down! Intriguing story with colorful characters.
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.
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.
The master of mystery story tellers has done it again. Totally realistic and makes one believe it could actually be true!
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.
