Overview

Star FBI detective Amos Decker and his colleague Alex Jamison must solve four increasingly bizarre murders in a dying rust belt town--and the closer they come to the truth, the deadlier it gets in this rapid-fire #1 New York Times bestseller.

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...

Agents Decker and Jamison are vacationing at the home of Alex's sister in northwestern Barronville PA. Amos has stepped out on the porch to allow the sisters to catch up on family matters. A storm is approaching and a flickering light in the house across the way catches his attention. Just as the thunderstorm begins Decker heads across the lawns to investigate. On the porch he peers through the window and sees the flickering flames of fire. He also saw something that spurred him into action. Amos backs up and throws his large bulky body against the door, smashing through into the kitchen and on into the room where he had glanced the bloody hanging body. So starts the latest tale of this team FBI agents. This case provides a very sizeable number of dead bodies and a large cast of characters that takes some time to sort out. Add in buried treasure, opioid epidemic, crooked banker, a dying town and various other crooked business people and sundry others. There you have all of the elements which the author spins into an exciting and enjoyable storyline. Well recommended. Received an ARC in a Goodreads give way. J M Lydon

I love all the characters in David Baldacci's books. Amos Decker may be the most fascinating. In this book, the reader sees Amos in an evolutionary phase, and we are left waiting for his next adventure to see if these changes have a lasting effect. The storyline itself is excellent, with a frightful look at the truth behind the opioid epidemic in our country. As always, Mr. Baldacci has done significant research. Enjoy the book, and see if you can put it down. It's difficult to do! Now, I'm waiting for the next installment of the Camel Club.

Decker has moments that allows his humanity to prevail, as both a surprise and a concern!

Not up to expectations for me. Feels like 6 separate stories patched together; busy, rather than complex. Female characters a little mushy, and none too bright. Still far better than 98% of the other story tellers out there; maybe I just expect too much from “Big B”. — G. L. River, MD

I really enjoyed this series about Amos Decker. It was intertwined with Amos' getting some of his old self back with yet another injury by almost being burned alive with his sidekick partner. He showed real empathy for his partner's neice. Difficult to put down.

A very good read. Quickly paced and enjoyable. I also enjoyed the "softer" side of Amos Decker. On to the next one.
