The Fallen David Baldacci Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Star FBI detective Amos Decker and his colleague Alex Jamison must solve four increasingly bizarre murders in a dying rust belt town--and the closer they come to the truth, the deadlier it gets in this rapid-fire #1 New York Times bestseller.
Something sinister is going on in Baronville. The rust belt town has seen four bizarre murders in the space of two weeks. Cryptic clues left at the scenes--obscure bible verses, odd symbols--have the police stumped.
Amos Decker and his FBI colleague Alex Jamison are in Baronville visiting Alex's sister and her family. It's a bleak place: a former mill and mining town with a crumbling economy and rampant opioid addiction. Decker has only been there a few hours when he stumbles on a horrific double murder scene.
Then the next killing hits sickeningly close to home. And with the lives of people he cares about suddenly hanging in the balance, Decker begins to realize that the recent string of deaths may be only one small piece of a much larger scheme--with consequences that will reach far beyond Baronville.
Decker, with his singular talents, may be the only one who can crack this bizarre case. Only this time--when one mistake could cost him everything--Decker finds that his previously infallible memory may not be so trustworthy after all...

User reviews about this book
Balducci at his worst!
I’ve been reading Baldacci for years and this is the weakest book of them all! The story is strained and poorly conceived! Don’t waste your time or money! Move on to your next choice!
My Least favourite
I love the memory man series but did not enjoy this one. It was boring very hard to get into. I actually did not read the whole book.
One of the better and most complex Balducci novels
Not one of Baldacci’s best.
Preposterous is a good word to describe this book. We never learn how large the town is but apparently they have enough police force to not miss those that are killed Often.
The ending is abrupt and those of the book is long the explanations of what was going on is handled in the last few paragraphs. Most of this makes little sense.I’ve always enjoyed Baldacci’s books but this one was a little much.

Hope you never stop writing about the Memory Man, read all in series and waiting for another.
Best author Ever!
I learned how to read what I was about four years old with Dr. Seuss. I have readof thousands of books and continue to read at least one a week. I picked up a David Baldacci book from my friend last year and was hooked. In a little over a year I have read every book he has written and eagerly antipate the next one to hit the shelves. Thank you Mr. Baldacci!
Review of the Fallen
By train guy 101
I love the Decker series and all the Baldacci books. My issue is that this book had such a painstaking buildup to the exciting conclusion. Less would have been more with the same result.
