Featuring an exclusive behind-the-scenes interview with David Baldacci about Amos Decker and the writing of The Fix.

David Baldacci's remarkable detective Amos Decker—the man who can forget nothing—was first introduced in the sensational #1 New York Times bestseller Memory Man. Now Decker returns in a stunning new novel . . .


Amos Decker witnesses a murder just outside FBI headquarters. A man shoots a woman execution-style on a crowded sidewalk, then turns the gun on himself.

Even with Decker's extraordinary powers of observation and deduction, the killing is baffling. Decker and his team can find absolutely no connection between the shooter—a family man with a successful consulting business—and his victim, a schoolteacher. Nor is there a hint of any possible motive for the attack.

Enter Harper Brown. An agent of the Defense Intelligence Agency, she orders Decker to back off the case. The murder is part of an open DIA investigation, one so classified that Decker and his team aren't cleared for it.

But they learn that the DIA believes solving the murder is now a matter of urgent national security. Critical information may have been leaked to a hostile government—or worse, an international terrorist group—and an attack may be imminent.

Decker's never been one to follow the rules, especially with the stakes so high. Forced into an uneasy alliance with Agent Brown, Decker remains laser focused on only one goal: solving the case before it's too late.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Decker is one of the most unusual detectives any novelist has dreamed up...a master class on the bestseller....Highly entertaining."—Washington Post

"Amos Decker is an amazing character. Reading how Decker journeys from hitting rock bottom to finding ultimate redemption is nothing short of rewarding."—Associated Press

"Perennial bestseller Baldacci unveils an offbeat hero with an unusual skill set and tragic past who takes on the evil mastermind behind a devastating school shooting..[Decker] proves a quirky, original antihero with a definite method to his madness...Readers will want to see Decker back on the printed page again and again."—Kirkus Reviews

"Baldacci's novels always have an emotional component...But MEMORY MAN stands out among his thrillers for its deeply felt - and earned - sense of catharsis and healing...Baldacci's last few books have been among his best, and it's a pleasure to see him produce emotionally and dramatically intense work at the height of his maturity as a novelist."—Richmond Times-Dispatch

Library Journal
Baldacci brings back football player-turned-detective Amos Decker. No word yet on plot for this third in the series, so check out 2015's Memory Man and 2016's The Last Mile to guess where this is heading. With a 500,000-copy first printing.

I'm a big fan of David Baldacci and of the Amos Decker series. However this book was a tedious read, too much talking and hypothesizing by the characters and not enough time spent moving the plot forward. The only.Baldacci book that i cannot.highly recommend.

Wow! What can I say about this latest book about Amos Decker. I was so engrossed in the book that I had a hard time putting it down. David Baldacci has always been one of my favorite thriller writer. Each new book I read is just as good, or better than the previous one. I really enjoy reading about Amos and his friends. He's focused on getting to the truth. His altered brain from the concussion makes for some funny scenes between Amos and others, along with his dry wit. This book definitely had me completely hooked until the very end. It was so interesting to see the way the story was woven to keep the reader interested. Looking forward to Decker's next story.
