Amos Decker witnesses a murder just outside FBI headquarters. A man shoots a woman execution style on a crowded sidewalk, then turns the gun on himself.
Even with Decker's extraordinary powers of observation and deduction, the killing is baffling. Decker and his team can find absolutely no connection between the shooter - a family man with a successful consulting business - and his victim, a schoolteacher. Nor is there a hint of any possible motive for the attack.
Enter Harper Brown. An agent of the Defense Intelligence Agency, she orders Decker to back off the case. The murder is part of an open DIA investigation, one so classified that Decker and his team aren't cleared for it.
But they learn that the DIA believes solving the murder is now a matter of urgent national security. Critical information may have been leaked to a hostile government - or, worse, an international terrorist group - and an attack may be imminent.
Decker's never been one to follow the rules, especially with the stakes so high. Forced into an uneasy alliance with Agent Brown, Decker remains laser focused on only one goal: solving the case before it's too late.

Where is Ron Mcclarty?
New reader makes decker seem teenager. Bring back Ron Mcclarty for Pete's sake. He brought real meaning to the story. I don't feel that brewer brings the real Amos decker out

Not the best Baldacci
I usually enjoy Baldacci, but this one was a struggle. The plot was good, but the characters were almost all unlikeable. I am also really tired of these narrators, especially the woman who only does southern, bitchy and immature, and sulky/weepy/whiny. Why are there so many sulky/weepy/whiny women in this novel? How many hours of sobbing women can anyone stand? Amos Decker is a jerk at least half the time and rarely likable.
