The Fallen (Amos Decker #4) Reviews
As expected from this author, this book in the Amos Series won't disappoint its audience either...
It's a well-written book, same characters that we are familiar with, from previous books in the series, but one won't need to read them before this one, as this book can be approached as a stand-alone as well...
so, same characters now in what's supposed to be a vacation, away from the ugly world of evil, yet they soon find themselves deep into a small and rural town, yet extremely active while a l ...more
Of course Amos is not able to take a vacation like a normal person and end smack in a cluster. For a small town you wouldn’t think there would be so much going on, but with each discovery Amos and Alex find more. It’s a bit crazy what they discover and all the people involved. I felt a little bit sorry for the towns people, but most of them laid the blame where it shouldn’t have been.
I liked how this one ended, I have hope for the town and I love the new connection that Amos made. I hope we can ...more
Another mediocre story that barely earns a passing grade from the Baldacci factory. 3 of 10 stars
It wasn't my favorite Amos Decker book, closer to a 3.5 than a 4 star book. I guess my problem with this book compared to the others is that I never felt invested in the plot the way I did with the other books. This one was put-downable, when compared to previous books. It's all relative I suppose.
Book 4 in the Memory Man series is The Fallen by David Baldacci. “Decker and his partner, Alex Jamison, go to visit her sister in Baronville - a town that’s struggling except for the new Fulfillment Center. Decker stumbles onto two bodies in the house next door. Before he knows it, he is investigating drug smugglers, insurance fraud and a legendary buried treasure. How many more will die?” Baldacci has finally given us a page turner again. This is what we expect from him. Book has a little of a ...more
Ripped from the headlines..
The premise of the story is a warning of how bad things could get if we can't break the back of the opioid crisis.
I like that a very different side of Decker was featured in this book. The caring man he had been before the freak head injury. I loved the relationship he developed with Zoe.
For the first time I guessed at the identity of one of the villains.
What can I say about this book besides it's another stellar entry into an already great series? Honestly, not much except that this is the fourth featuring former police detective Amos Decker, who landed a spot on my Top 10 book "heroes" list right from the first. That's partly because he's an Ohio boy (I've been a proud Buckeye State resident most of my life) and a football standout - that is, until he took a nearly deadly hit on his first play as a member of the Cleveland Browns.
He didn't die, ...more
Seemed like a Jack Reacher novel to me. Amos Decker and his FBI partner Alex Jamison take a vacation to Baronville to visit Alex's sister, brother-in-law to celebrate her niece's sixth birthday, only to discover two murdered people in a neighbor's abandoned house. Baronville is a broken town, with its original factories shuttered, and some hope from a huge mail-order shipping warehouse. Amos figures out the identity of the corpses and learns there are been four other recent unsolved murders, whi ...more
