The Fallen
The Fallen | David Baldacci
Amos Decker, David Baldacci's unique special agent with the gift of a remarkable memory, returns in The Fallen. Small towns which have seen better times are not unusual. But the mysterious events in Baronville, Pennsylvania, are raising the highly-tuned antennae of agent Amos Decker and his FBI partner, Alex Jamison. What was supposed to be a relaxing vacation turns into a murder investigation when two bodies are found in a nearby deserted house. With the body count rising, Decker and Jamison dig deep to uncover a sinister truth in Baronville, which could be the canary in the coalmine for the rest of the country. But even the duos skills and Amos Deckers infallible memory may not be enough to save this town, or them, from becoming the next victims.

4 stars. The Memory man is back for number four in the series. Ultimately this will be a #readalsoin2020 and will fade from my memory. When looking for a photo of a small town, I found a gem.

This book took me a while to read, but I really enjoyed it! (May be due to working a lot and only reading 10 pages before passing out at night...)

Decker & Jamieson arrive for vacation with her family. However, some strange things happen in the house beyond their backyard that don‘t add up despite the storm and Decker & Jamieson fund themselves embroiled in a multi murder case that just might be tied into drugs & other weird goings on in the town.

OOPS! Dropped it! Don‘t worry even though it‘s Fallen now, I will soon be right back on track finishing this page turner in the Memory Man series. Racing through and hoping for a solid ending...

Grabbed this from the library. I love Amos Decker! He‘s the Memory Man!!

I also grabbed the audio from the library so I can listen while I do some work in my house. We‘re moving into the house four houses down from where we currently live (😂) next month so there‘s lots of pre-packing stuff going on right now. Perfect time for audiobooking!!

An odd setup for a thriller, but I enjoyed the setting in a sleepy town that has had its day. I just hope the next holiday Amos Decker has is a bit more relaxing!

Librarybelle Thank you for sharing this! When I talk to my patrons about this, they are astounded...it‘s definitely not widely known. 13mo
KathyWheeler Looking at this I thought the prices for the ebook must be wrong then I realized what I was seeing was the pricing for libraries. Yes, that‘s typical. I‘ve paid a difference of hundreds of dollars before for my library when we needed the digital version. It‘s a rip-off. Publishers claim it‘s justified because of how many uses it can potentially have, but that‘s a lame argument. (edited) 13mo
KathyWheeler @Librarybelle I actually discussed this in a presentation for our faculty; they were shocked. 13mo
Librarybelle @KathyWheeler I train the staff on technology for my library system, and even the staff initially have no idea about the cost discrepancies. Having these discussions have better informed them when an angry person is standing in front of them demanding the latest book from their favorite author, which costs the library 87.00. It‘s amazing! 13mo
KathyWheeler @Librarybelle I know! When I did staff training on using our ebook interfaces, I talked about this with our staff. For some reason, I‘d assumed they knew but they didn‘t and were appalled. 13mo
SassenachTheBookWizard @KathyWheeler and @Librarybelle I also do eResource training and we had hoopla for like 5 years before we finally just got rid of it! AND NONE OF THEM KNEW IT WAS A PAY PER USE MODEL! 13mo
Librarybelle @SassenachTheBookWizard It took a lot training to get the staff more fluent in all of the terms. We have Freegal, so it took some time for a few of the staff to understand that patrons can keep downloaded music for free, and it does not cost the patron anything. Admittedly, some of the staff at that time never heard of iTunes, so it was a very different concept for them! 13mo
Johanna414 I regularly have teachers who come into my library and ask me to find a way to get each of their students an ebook version of whatever title they‘re reading in class - for free... most recently it was The Hate U Give. He was more than a little taken aback when I explained that one copy would cost me about $75.00. “Are you sure you can‘t find me something for free?” 13mo

Fast paced story with lots of characters. Deals with the opioid crisis in America today. Sad to know that probably a lot of what was written is true of the characters. Not my favorite of the series but I do believe and enjoy that there are law enforcement out there that are like him in wanting to right the wrongs done to innocent people.

Another excellent book in the Amos Decker Series, my favourite Baldacci series. Amos is away on vacation but cannot avoid becoming involved in investigating what appears complex & separate murder cases in Baronsville. This hooked me from the beginning, but there was a part in the middle which was not as engaging as at this point he was working alone without Jamison, this relationship is a key strength of the series. A very strong ending.

This was the fourth Amos Decker book. I found it to be drag in a lot of spots. The last 50 or so pages it did pick up though.

I like the Amos Decker series by this author. I found this book to be good, well written but it did drag a bit. Had some good twists and turns. Kept me guessing for the most part. Did introduce his partners family and a town in the midst of an opioid epidemic. Dirty cops, insurance fraud, murder and a search for hidden money. I would have liked it more had I not still been hung up on Rabbit Cake.

Intricately plotted, fast-paced, & timely, #TheFallen, the 4th installment in the #AmosDecker #MemoryMan series, is also entertaining & compelling. #DavidBaldacci's latest adventure for #AmosDecker & #AlexJamison also gives readers a deeper look at Decker's psyche. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Thanks to #NetGalley for an Advance Reader's Copy of the book. #NetGalleyTRBAttack

Finished this up this morning and a great book. Amos Decker is a most unlikely hero but he gets the job done. Are several murders in a small town coincidence or a huge conspiracy? It‘s a wild ride before you find out the answer.

Andrew65 Need to read this one, loved the others. 2y
Booknerd2 @Andrew65 It‘s very good. A lot going on with several story lines. 2y

4th book in Amos Decker series. Decker and Jamison are visiting Jamison‘s sister in Baronville PA and soon become involved with serial killers. Drugs, hidden treasure from the historic Baron family are the reason for murder. I love how Decker was so sensitive with Jamison‘s niece, Zoe, after her father becomes a victim. Decker has a talented mind which helps him in crime solving but is his memory starting to fail him? Read this book to find out.

Andrew65 I can‘t wait to get to this one, I love this series and just gets better and better. 2y

(#4 in Memory Man series, but 👍 stand-alone)

Amos and Alex are visiting Alex's sister in a small town in PA called, Baronville. When Amos is on the deck talking to Alex's niece, he notices flickering lights and then a spark of flame in the window of the house across the way. When he goes to investigate, he finds two dead bodies inside, but it's not clear how either man died. There just might be something sinister going on in Baronville...

jbhops I started having a moment here when I saw this. "Wait... What? New Decker book? When did this happen?!?" Google helped me. ? 2y
HiddenGemBooks @jbhops oh you bet! He‘s coming back in 2018! Coming in full swing. Haha. 2y
