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 been there only a few hours when he stumbles on a horrific double murder scene.

Another memorable story of the *Memory Man" and his partner that stays intriguing and exciting to the end. Amos Decker becomes more believable with each story that Mr. Baldacci weaves for us!

Like all the previous Reacher novels, intricate and interesting to the level that you don't want to stop listening, though the ending really leaves you feeling deprived.

A long-buried family secret resurfaces when one of Aloysius Pendergast's most implacable enemies shows up on his doorstep as a murdered corpse. The mystery has all the hallmarks of the perfect murder, save for an enigmatic clue: a piece of turquoise lodged in the stomach of the deceased. The gem leads Pendergast to an abandoned mine on the shore of California's desolate Salton Sea, which in turn propels him on a journey of discovery deep into his family's sinister past.

It was an interesting story, with plenty of subplots and intrigue. However, the abrupt ending very much leaves one hanging. Obviously the author wants to lead us to the next book in the series, but abandoning the audience at sea was downright rude!

David Baldacci has a knack for creating characters we crave to know better through more narratives, and Will Robbie fits well in his growing list of such protagonists. Very much looking core to more Will.

Although Peter Giles "female voice" isn't as good as some readers' the overall performance was quite good, and the story was very captivating. Try it, you'll like it!
