Amos Decker is one of my favourite detectives... so happy to have a 4th book. It was fantastic, cant wait for book 5.

This wasn’t my favorite of Baldacci’s Memory Man series but it was still a good read. There were so many bad guys it was hard to keep all of them straight. However, it was endearing to see Amos Decker be vulnerable after another whack on the head. His interactions with six year old Zoe were very touching and therapeutic for both. Of course, they solved the nasty crime spree and murders which had paralyzed the small town.

I love Amos, but I wasn't as engaged in this novel as I have been in the past. I debated between a 3-4 so gave it a 3.5 with a lean to 4 stars. I liked Amos fine in this novel but missed rest of the team. And I miss Melvin!

David Baldacci, author of some 35 plus novels, definitely needs no introduction. He is the bestselling author of the Memory Man series. The Fallen marks the fourth and latest chapter in this popular set of novels, featuring enigmatic lead Amos Decker. The Fallen is a thrill ride from start to finish and I guarantee this book will draw appeal for loyal fans of the series and newcomers.

5 stars This hit close to home with grief. If I can I do a review, I shall. It still hurts to talk about. Sorry.

Another great Amos Decker (Memory Man) book. Love his character -- a little more growth this time.

Check the blurb for the synopsis. Complex plot with lots of characters, including the town of Baronville.

I primarily listened to it, and it was well done.

Probably not my favourite of the series so far but still good. Amos Decker maintains his personality and weird little quirks despite a few doubts creeping in from time to time.

Parts of this probably overlong book are slow - never boring but slow. There is a fair amount of unnecessary detail and the introduction of an awful lot of characters. On the other hand the murder count is huge and varied and Decker himself is nearly murdered at least three times.

Decker's character seems to be developing n
