Mystery Monday: Memorable Memory Man

Looking for something a bit different in a suspense thriller....TRY



THE MEMORY MAN
(Amos Decker: #1)
Written by David Baldacci
2015; 405 Pages
Genre: mystery, suspense, thriller, psychological
  
Rating: ★★★★1/2

(I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review).

Amos Decker has already died twice - once on the football field that ended his pro-ball career and left him with a side-effect of never being able to forget anything; then as a detective he comes home to find his wife, young daughter and brother-in-law brutally murdered and is unable to forget any details.  A year later, Amos is now working as a PI and a man has come forward to confess to the triple homicide.  Before the police can delve into this investigation there is a shooting at the school.  If Amos wants his family’s case solve he must join forces with his former partner and boss and use his special gift.
Drop Everything And Read -- Now!

Right off, I enjoyed The Memory Man’s unique plot.  It really made the suspense pop off the page along with good writing.  Amos is already a favourite character and I am so excited this will be a series.  Baldacci not only writes characters that are interesting, realistic, memorable but also characters that are endearing and familiar.  While you could read this as a standalone thriller suspense I doubt you will as Baldacci sets up the series and has you clamoring for more Amos Decker.  I am keeping this review short so that I do not reveal any spoilers.
