Another great book from David Baldacci in the Memory Man series. I have enjoyed all his books but especially this series.

THE FALLEN is the best David Baldacci book yet in the Memory Man Series. Decker and Jamison are "on vacation" in a small town where Jamison's sister lives. Decker is relaxing on her deck outside when he notices strange things going on in the house behind it and goes to see what is happening. "On vacation" quickly evolves into "working a case" (or course). What is a case becomes so many different threads and twists and turns that it is a lot of cases balled up into one - though they merge somewhat towards the end. This is a very complicated story with great characters and plot development. The non-fiction, descriptive parts of this dealing with our Nation's opiod crises (plural intended) adds a huge layer of complexity to the story (a good thing) and scares the hell out of me (a less good thing, but a reality we better face). Throw into the mix that Decker gets decked by a major blow to the head which messes with his already "rewired" and amazing memory and you have a great story of crime solving and changing interpersonal relations. Well done David Baldacci! Enjoy.

3½ stars. I totally did my happy dance when I got my hands on this book! I love the Amos Decker series sooo much! Sadly, this wasn't my favorite in the series. There were so many story lines to keep track of - and the end of the book felt (to me) like everything had been thrown in a blender, pulsed a couple of times, and dumped back out, lol.

Another good addition to the Memory Man series. Complex story that deals with the opiod problem and the effects it has on a dying town. Interesting group of characters that have gotten mixed up in a drug scheme and a search for a long lost treasure. Baldacci just keeps getting better and never disappoints.
