    Brilliant Story

    Amos Decker's life changed forever - twice. The first time was on the gridiron. A big, towering athlete, he was the only person from his hometown of Burlington ever to go pro. But his career ended before it had a chance to begin. On his very first play, a violent helmet-to-helmet collision knocked him off the field for good and left him with an improbable side effect - he can never forget anything.

    Good plot BAD edit and mixiing

    Fun Read Bad Listen (yep 4 words)

    Memories can be a real killer. Melvin Mars awaits his fate on death row. He was one of America's most promising football stars until, aged 20 years old, he was arrested and convicted for the murder of his parents - just as he was due to begin a very lucrative contract with the NFL.

    Another Baldacci masterpiece!

    Excellent read, definitely worth it! Amos Dekker is definitely becoming one of my favourite characters!

    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.

    Good, but the narrorater effort is weak.

    I like the story but didn't like the narroration on this book. did they change?
