Publisher's Summary

Amos Decker, David Baldacci's unique special agent, who suffered a head injury that resulted in giving him the gift of a remarkable memory together with a condition called synaesthesia, takes on another case in The Fix.

Walter Dabney is a family man. A loving husband and the father of four grown daughters, he's built a life many would be proud of.

But then the unthinkable happens.

Standing outside the FBI headquarters in Washington, DC, Dabney shoots schoolteacher Anne Berkshire in cold blood before turning the gun on himself. One of the many witnesses is Amos Decker, a man who forgets nothing and sees what most miss. Baffled by what appears to be a seemingly senseless and random killing, Decker is thrust into the investigation to determine what drove this family man to pull the trigger.

As part of an FBI special task force, Decker and the team delve into the lives of Dabney and Berkshire to find a connection that doesn't seem to exist. What they do find are secrets that stretch back a lifetime and reveal a current plot of impending destruction that will send the world reeling, placing Decker and his team squarely in the crosshairs.

    Story
    "David Baldacci produces an intriguing thriller."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would very much recommend this book and in fact the whole Amos Decker series to anyone who enjoys a complex, well-written thriller with unexpected twists and turns in the plot and interesting characters.


    What other book might you compare The Fix to, and why?

    I think this book is like some of the Robert Crais novels with a central character who is both flawed but very likeable. It has the same well thought out plots and good descriptions of both people and places.


    Which character – as performed by Kyf Brewer and Orlagh Cassidy – was your favourite?

    I thought all the performances were excellent but particularly liked the portrayal of Harper Brown and Melvin Mars. Between the sharp descriptive text and the voice portraits drawn by the narrators, I could clearly see and hear these characters speak and interact in my mind.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I both laughed and cried at different parts of this book. The scenes with Joey at the Hospice are very touching and sad. The jealousy of Alex Jamison is quite amusing and Decker's reaction to it. Overall I kept listening and promising myself that I would turn the book off after the next chapter, but I was hooked and stayed up much too late listening to 'just one more chapter'.


    Any additional comments?

    It has been a real pleasure to see how Decker and those around him have changed and developed over this series. The plots are intriguing and entertaining. As with every different series by this particular author I am never disappointed. I am eagerly awaiting the next book chronicling Amos's journey.

    Story
    "Triple Decker!"

    The Fix is the third in the Amos Decker series and builds strongly on the first two. It's subtly different in that the mystery itself does not seem so personal to Decker and the other key characters. There is less in terms of building an ongoing tension and urgency, that rather comes in a more episodic form including a couple of interesting side plots.

    Decker is of course a quite different kind of hero. Dysfunctional detective /agent types are nothing new to the genre but with his accident-induced memory and personality conditions he is just a bit different and better explained than most. The mysteries he investigates are complex and multi-layered and I found the twists here genuinely interesting. Baldacci also manages to weave significant human interest and emotional touches into the overall tapestry. There were perhaps one or two cheesy moments in there but they were well done so I think they can easily be forgiven.

    The joint narration works really well between Brewer and Cassidy. Some conversations between single female and male characters are given a much greater tempo as the two voices mean all the he/she saids are dropped without loss of clarity.

    In all this is another good addition to the series. To me it didn't quite hit the impressive heights of the previous book but I'll definitely be following Decker and co to the next one.

    "Terrible Story, Lazy Writing"

    I like Amos Decker as a character, there is a lot that can be done with him. This story however is a waste. I feel that either Baldacci either didn't write it and just put his name to it or he couldn't be bothered and just ploughed through the motions to crank a book out to fulfil a contract or something.

    I wasn't entertained, I wasn't kept guessing. I wasn't in awe of Deckers skills and amazing memory. In fact "amazing memory" is mentioned three or four times in the book, looks like David couldn't be bothered to pick up the thesaurus.

    I made myself listen until the end purely so I could leave this review as I have a rule that I don't leave low star reviews for books I haven't finished. I will be using the Audible "never read a bad book" guarantee on this one I think.

    The plot, without spoiling anything is to do with spies and espionage and all of all of the avenues the writer could have gone down I picked off the majority of the plot twists out of the gate.

    If you're still reading, seriously give this one a miss, you won't be sorry.

    With a memory that never quits Amos is an amazing man trying to. Connect not only the clues but connect himself to the world around him. This is the third in the series and all have been enjoyable. Here's to the next!

    "Riveting story"

    Nicely narrated by Kyf & Orlagh, The Fix moves along apace with many twists and turns and Amos Decker there to unravel it all helped Alex, Colbert and the rest of the team.
