Did not realize till after I bought this in the sale that it must be abridged. There are two recordings of this book and this one is almost four hours shorter than the other one. I could not finish it anyways. It is just too simple and boring of a story. Serendipity plays a big part in this so called mystery. Stuff just happens out of the blue, that help in the solving of the case. The whole Roomies thing also seemed a little weird. Someone mentioned that a ghost writer wrote this. That might be true although it did have Baldacci signature, most women are tall good looking blondes.

This novel had a slow moving plot, that mostly consisted of the detectives talking to people and getting more information about a puzzling murder that Decker witnessed. There is not a lot of action, and the murder was not especially interesting. Decker was introduced in Memory Man (which I thought was an okay novel). He has a photographic memory but his behavior is sometimes similar to a person on the Autism spectrum. The problem is that Decker is not a very interesting nor believable character. None of the other characters in this are either interesting or believable. I hoped that this would be exciting near the climax, but it didn't. With only 2 hours remaining, I finally gave up on this. I generally like Baldacci novels, but this was his worst, in my opinion.
