Summary:

Amos Decker is the Memory Man. Following a football-related head injury that altered his personality, Decker is now unable to forget even the smallest detail-as much a curse as it is a blessing. And in #1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci's gripping new thriller, Decker's life might be about to change again...

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...

    I enjoyed the book and narration. Having 2 people do voices was a plus - you don't have a 40 year old man trying to sound like a ten year old girl. Not meaning to be negative, but found myself wondering how many people in Pennsylvania have Southern accents. Enough things going on that one couldn't predict all of the final resolution and figure the guilty parties. Brought up some current problems small towns are facing without preaching.

    I just could not get into this book. I really tried to but most of the time I would find my mind wandering. It might be great for some other readers but I guess this just wasn't the book for me.

    Fun story. Maybe a little too corny at end, but very visual and interesting twists. DB tried to explain too much at end.
