Book review: Memory Man

Book review: Memory Man

In this book review I’m covering  Memory Man by another of my favorite writers David Baldacci. The first book of series in the Amos Decker series. 

Decker once a big, towering athlete had his life changed forever twice.

On his debut in the NFL, a violent helmet-to-helmet collision knocked him off the field for good leaving Decker with a savant – like side effect, he can’t forget anything. The second was almost two decades later when returning home from a stake out he finds his wife, young daughter and brother-in-law brutally murdered.

Over a year and a half has passed now and Decker is slowly truing his life around working as a PI just enough to keep himself feed. When someone walks into the police station and confesses to the murder of Decker’s family. Almost at the same time a mass shooting at Decker’s old high-school brings the small town of Burlington to its knees. The Chief of Police asks Decker to work with his old partner to uncover the truth behind the shooting and find why after so long someone would confess to killing his family

This series has real potential with strong and interesting characters. The book is a real page turner, it kept me up more than a few nights reading. On my scale of 1 to 5. 1 being don’t bother and 5 a true page turner, I give Memory Man a solid 5. This is a most read I’m sure you will enjoy.

The tracks playing are a mix from my new album I’m gonna let it rideand R.E.’s Style” I hope you enjoy
