Hello fellow readers, in this book review I’m covering the fifth book in the (Memory Man Series) Redemption, by David Baldacci. The tracks playing in this post are select tracks from my CD 10 which you can now find on iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, Spotify, Pandora, CD Baby and streaming on other networks. Let’s dig into this review.
The Book Review
Redemption opens with Amos Decker visiting his hometown of Burlington, Ohio. He and Alex have traveled there after leaving Alex’s family on their long vacation. They’re here in Decker’s home town to visit the grave site of his late wife and daughter.
While Decker is honoring the memory of his late family, he’s approached by Meryl Hawkins, a man he put away for life after killing 4 people. In fact, it was Decker’s first case as a detective. Hawkins tells Decker he’s dying from terminal cancer and wants to set the record straight. He’s innocent of those murders. To Decker, this is unthinkable. The case had rock solid forensic evidence that proved he was guilty. But when Hawkins later turns up dead with a bullet in his head, even Decker begins to wonder about Hawkins guilt.
Decker and his first partner, Mary Lancaster, the same detective that helped him convict Hawkins, take the case. But, can Decker and Mary uncover the truth after all of these years? And what secrets will be revealed by re-opening this case.
This book was a great read, full of intrigue twists and turns. On my scale of 1 to 5, 1 being don’t bother and 5 a real page turner, I give Redemption, a 5. David Baldacci continues to bring great complex characters and amazing storytelling in this book.
