I used to have a love-hate relationship with suspense...actually, it was more like a hate-love relationship, so I had a tendency to stick with the feel-good-rom-com-type books. However, after having read 'Absolute Power' (gifted to me by my sister some years ago), I fell in love with Baldacci. Now, Audible has taken to telling me that it hopes my ears work on Monday since I've listened to 'Memory Man', 'The Last Mile' and 'The Fix' between Friday and Sunday. Being able to listen AND multitask, I just couldn't put Decker down. Although Ron McLarty's reading of Decker is my favorite, Kyf Brewer and Orlagh Cassidy really sell it for me as Melvin Mars and Alex Jamison respectively. I'm so glad Harper didn't die. Looking forward to more appearances from her. On to 'The Fallen'...thanks David Baldacci!!!😊
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would very much recommend this book and in fact the whole Amos Decker series to anyone who enjoys a complex, well-written thriller with unexpected twists and turns in the plot and interesting characters.
What other book might you compare The Fix to, and why?
I think this book is like some of the Robert Crais novels with a central character who is both flawed but very likeable. It has the same well thought out plots and good descriptions of both people and places.
Which character – as performed by Kyf Brewer and Orlagh Cassidy – was your favourite?
I thought all the performances were excellent but particularly liked the portrayal of Harper Brown and Melvin Mars. Between the sharp descriptive text and the voice portraits drawn by the narrators, I could clearly see and hear these characters speak and interact in my mind.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I both laughed and cried at different parts of this book. The scenes with Joey at the Hospice are very touching and sad. The jealousy of Alex Jamison is quite amusing and Decker's reaction to it. Overall I kept listening and promising myself that I would turn the book off after the next chapter, but I was hooked and stayed up much too late listening to 'just one more chapter'.
Any additional comments?
It has been a real pleasure to see how Decker and those around him have changed and developed over this series. The plots are intriguing and entertaining. As with every different series by this particular author I am never disappointed. I am eagerly awaiting the next book chronicling Amos's journey.

I loved this from the get go. In his usual way, DB keeps you guessing about any new characters as the story winds it's way through many twists and turns and I must say that the main surprise was exactly that when it came.
As always the narrator's were excellent and add to the intrigue.
Thoroughly enjoyed and recommended.

Narrator was a little slow and drawn out to listen to. The story was awesome and very hard to stop listening. kept me in suspense.
Amos Decker 3 is exciting and puzzling to the last page. Kyf's narration supports this.
