CHARACTERS ´ Redemption Changed He maintains he never committed the murders Could it be possible that Decker made a mistake all those years ago As he starts digging into the old case Decker finds a startling connection to a new crime that he may be able to prevent if only he can put the pieces together uickly enou Amos Decker a cop who also done some work with the FBI is visiting his home town of Burlington Ohio on his daughter s birthday Well accurately it s his late daughter as she and her mother Decker s beloved wife were brutally murdered some while ago As he sits by the grave he s visited by a man he thought he d never see again Meryl Hawkins was the subject of Decker s first murder investigation as a police officer and he was subseuently sent down for life for the murder of four people But it seems that Hawkins has been released early suffering from terminal cancer In a brief conversation with Decker he claims his innocence stating that the cops got it wrong big time Amos is not someone to leave loose end so he seeks out his ex partner with a view to walking through the Hawkins case again He doesn t think they got it wrong as the evidence seemed irrevocable but he wants to set his mind to rest But events soon mean that he s drawn into reviewing the case from top to bottom could it be that somehow they missed something or were misledThis is the fifth book in the series and it s clear that a late joiner I ve not yet read the earlier books I ve missed out on uite a bit of relevant history And although this book can certainly be read as a standalone it s worth noting that there are uite a few references to acts and people previously featured in the series I was definitely left with the impression that I d have been better off reading these books in order That said other than the tragedy impacting his family the only other key piece of information to know about our front man is that he suffers from a condition called hyperthymesia which means that all his memories are permanently stored in his brain The condition brought on by a severe blow to his head is both a blessing and a curse his powers of recall are faultless so that once he s seen something he can pull up the memory and pick out as much detail as he wishes but the downside is that he s also permanently haunted by visions of the bad events in his life I liked both Decker and his ex partner they re presented as believable and interesting characters trying to do the right thing whilst also attempting to address significant challenges in their own lives The the most part this book worked really well with the re investigation being broken down into reasonable steps and relevant challenges being made to actions previously taken However I do have a couple of bones to pick with it Firstly I had some issues with a few of the minor characters there s the slightly less able cop that had seen his career pushed aside by the gifted Decker and the boss cop who clearly for reasons unspecified here had the severe hump with our hero neither convinced me The same went for a couple of the other characters Secondly there s the big ending in which all becomes clear a scene that to me simply felt overplayed and totally implausible That said it s a fun read and as I ve already got episode four ready to roll as an audiobook I ll certainly give this series another try it s a decent concept and in Decker I think Baldacci has created a fictional character with some depthMy thanks to Pan Macmillan and NetGalley for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
